    RHLSTP 395 - Conrad Koch

    RHLSTP 395 - Conrad Koch

    #395 Koch and Ball - Richard is still trying to come to terms with the fact his first Fringe happened 35 years ago, as well as how much his landlord is making from the show. Never mind - his guest(s) today are Conrad Koch and his little friend Chester Missing. They talk about what makes a normal human being turn to ventriloquism, how a puppet can be the best medium to discuss huge political issues (or they can be a carrot that fails to do double entendres properly), how Chester because a huge hit in South Africa and why politicians want to be interviewed by him, plus the revelation that the end of Apartheid was not the end of racism and why racism is white people’s problem. Richard decides to show Conrad how to do ventriloquism properly and so there’s an appearance from a certain cancerous bollock. Who is the best ventriloquist? See if you can decide via an audio only medium.

    RHLSTP 394 - Kiri and Rachel

    #394 What’s The F****** Point - Richard’s children are being exposed to the artistic posters of the Fringe, whilst Rich is wondering why anyone is bothering (already). His guests are Rachel Fairburn and Kiri Pritchard-McLean. They chat about how podcasts are rubbish now everyone is doing them, dodgy tummies, Gollum’s suit case, whether you can eat a rescue chicken and whether the working class have more challenges to face when it comes to stand up.

    RHLSTP 393 - Harriet Dyer

    #393 Vibrator Kettle Mum - The King of Edinburgh is back for his 26th Fringe and another dirty dozen shows at the Edinburgh Fringe. His first guest is bipolar comedian and nearly Big Brother contestant Harriet Dyer. They talk about her fantastic autobiography Bipolar Comedian, turning terrible events into comedy and channelling mental illness into something positive, poisoning a contestant on a TV dating show, a coat full of farts, becoming Richard Herring and how the other Harriet Dyers have impacted on Harriet Dyers life.

    RHLSTP 392 - Daliso Chaponda

    RHLSTP 392 - Daliso Chaponda

    #392 Pegged - RHLSTP has travelled to Yorkshire to be part of the Deershed festival and is taking place at the unGodly hour of 11.10pm, but at least it’s Gareth’s birthday. Richard’s guest is Malawian comic and bronze medal winner of Britain’s Got Talent, Daliso Chaponda. They discuss the weirdness of performing at festivals, what it’s like to play a Royal Variety show with no audience, believing in everything, which is the best angel, dinosaur fellatio and the inexplicably different experiences Daliso and Richard have had with the police. Plus they address the rumours about a certain eminent personage (not that one) and a sexual technique that Richard had to google before the show, but which the mum on the front row definitely didn’t want discussed in front of her kids. Some classic EQs and audience requests.

    RHLSTP 391 - Meryl O’ Rourke

    RHLSTP 391 - Meryl O’ Rourke

    #391 Where Did We Get Our Porn? - Richard has surprisingly found himself being bigged up by a Ukrainian MP for his humanitarian efforts, which is very exciting. His guest is circuit veteran, ex-celeb stalker and writer Meryl O’Rourke. They talk about the comedy scene of the 90s, writing for Frankie Boyle, waiting for your break, scaring Stephen Fry, why it’d be nice to have a Tinder for friends, finding humour in the family traumas of the Holocaust and confronting your abuser, how much the world of sex has moved on since the 20th Century and whether her best comedy years are still to come.

    Retro RHLSTP 50 - Joe Lycett

    Retro RHLSTP 50 - Joe Lycett

    RETRO RHLSTP #50 A Fan Who’s Won a Competition - It’s the last show in series 7 and there’s an end of term atmosphere and a lot of good natured heckling from a slightly inebriated crowd. Richard’s final guest is Peter Dickson impersonator and product of 1988, Joe Lycett. The podcast largely turns into the vehicle for a RHLSTP clips show as Joe quizzes Richard about his favourite and least favourite guests and what the future might hold for the valuable RHLSTP franchise.
    But there’s also time to talk about identifying fish as they are slapped into your face, how much money Richard turned down to appear on TV with Katy Hopkins and the varying depravity of ex Blue Peter presenters. It’s a fittingly low key and relaxed end to the series. Series eight starts next week.

Hozmatoz ,

One of my fav podcasts

I am a podcast addict and listen to all sorts including intelligence squared debates, this American life and planet money. But Richard's podcast is the one I look forward to every week and play it as soon as it arrives. It's like an hour with a friend who is ridiculous, warm, funny, honest and a great conversationalist. Thanks Richard!

Richard grows on you. Like a rash.

I really can’t explain it any better than the title.
