    RHLSTP 299 - John Kearns

    #298 Everything Entropies - We’re just one show from the magic number 300 (if you ignore all the Edinburgh shows and other specials) and Rich is angry that he hasn’t got an MBE and that his cupboard is still giving him problems. His guest is a work of art depicting the young Father Christmas, John Kearns.


    They discuss the problem of student stand up existing forever online, the mind games of Eamonn Holmes, some mind bogglingly expensive pants, what to do with slightly cracked bowls, the difficulty of getting stuff on TV and shitting yourself at parents’ evening.


    Plus exciting news about the next series of Top Coppers.


    Richard’s new book, The Problem With Men is out on 5th November https://www.amazon.co.uk/Problem-Men-When-International-matters/dp/0751581453/

    RHLSTP 298 - Stevie Martin

    #298 Snail Face - Richard has been causing a Twitter sensation with the ballad of his blocked cupboard, but the real question is how many graters does one man need? His guest only has one and her name is Stevie Martin. 


    They chat about the joy of a well timed silly face, the less joy of having to watch your TV pilots vanish into the ether, witchcraft and finding out your allergies via electricity, the difference between moving to London in the 80s and the 2010s, relationships as a competition, terrible social media experiences and the joys of improvising for an hour on Twitch.

    RHLSTP 297 - Michael Ian Black

    RHLSTP 297 - Michael Ian Black

    #297 Polystyrene Vs Worms - Richard has found himself disappointed by the action of Han Solo, but never mind, he’s back on telly (Taskmaster starts on October 15th, 9pm on Channel 4) and so he won’t have to do stupid podcasts where he talks to dead wasps anymore. But for now, here he is talking to the charming and patient and wise Michael Ian Black. 


    They discuss why you’d give up being a Mutant Ninja Turtle, the battle to create the most boring podcast, who has the best Irish accent, Rich’s problem with Michael’s film “Run Fatboy Run”, whether the Universe will be destroyed if they ever meet, the problems with masculinity that has prompted them both to write a book about it and Rich’s plans to write a film with the greatest cast list ever.


    Michael’s book is ace, buy it here https://www.amazon.co.uk/Better-Man-Letter-My-Son/dp/1616209119/


    And/or buy Richard’s less good book about the same thing here https://www.amazon.co.uk/Problem-Men-When-International-matters/dp/0751581453/

    RETRO AIOTM (Series 3, Episode 6)

    RETRO AIOTM (Series 3, Episode 6)

    Retro AIOTM #28 - We have come to the end of the road. It’s the final Retro AIOTM. It got us through the whole of lockdown and ends just as the second one starts going. Ah it was fun, wasn’t it? We did do another batch a few years later, but check out the AIOTM feed and YouTube for those. Nothing capture the magic of a live cumpkining.


    As It Occurs To Me: Series 3, Episode 6: It's the end my friends. It really is. Really, really. But don't cry, just say goodbye, it could be worse. Rich has stories of CJ from Eggheads and Al Qaeda and is unjustly critical of a charity trying to de-worm orphans in Haiti, Emma has the best poo stories to make you sick, Dan is dressed as Adam Ant and Christian is looking forward to next week's show. Will Pippa Middleton's Disembodied Anus survive? Will King Herod make an appearance? Will Andrew Collins say 'aside' or make an appearance in real life? Will Rich have to take the cumpkin-based punishment prescribed by last week's Moral Maze or does he have some kind of revenge planned for the dark and mysterious forces that make the ethical decisions? I don't know, why don't you just listen to the podcast? All I can tell you is that tears or some kind of bodily fluid will be spilled before the show is over. As much as we travel in time, can we truly change our fates? It's properly the end folks. Thanks so much for your support or your 1 star iTunes reviews. It's been fun. Apart from the pain and mental illness.

    RHLSTP 296 - Michael Fenton Stevens

    #296 Groovy Gang - Richard has been to Legoland and seen a sight that sums up the compromise of parenthood. His guest is the legendary Michael Fenton Stevens. They discuss the rock star life that even parody pop stars enjoy, how taking a punt on a chicken paid off, Nicholas Lyndhurst’s property portfolio, which sitcom star MFS took a dislike to, filming by an airport, appearing on Tiswas and seeing the birth of a comedy classic. Plus the dynamics of a sketch group, the horrors of childhood and Kate Bush getting excited. How can you resist?

    RETRO AIOTM (Series 3, Episode 5)

    RETRO AIOTM (Series 3, Episode 5)

    Retro AIOTM #27 - Only one more Retro AIOTM to go after this. Weirdly Lily Allen had just got married back in June 2011 and she’s just got married again! There’s a memorable punishment for Rich’s moral maze in this one. Feels like only yesterday. Still picking flour out my anal crevice. Support our kickstarter at http://rhlstp.co.uk/kickstarter. All profits to live comedy.


    As It Occurs To Me: Series 3, Episode 5: It's the penultimate AIOTM (aiotm) ever and Rich smells like a baker. He has had last week's moral maze punishment hanging over his head. Emma is back to her scatological best, Dan has been captured by an artist and Christian is worried about the effects of nuclear catastrophes. What will Rich do at Lily Allen's wedding? Who is up to star in Attitudeless Badger? What would the 11 year-old Rich think about 43 old Rich getting an email from Francoise Pascal? How can the moral maze top last week's punishment? Only one way to find out!

not the lion ,

Richard Who?

I think I stumbled across this podcast because James Acaster was on it. I have no real knowledge of Richard Herring’s career but RHLSTP is often laugh out loud funny.

Ian Tinfish ,

Consistently fantastic

Richard consistently gets great guests and is always great value . Thanks for the hours of laughs, Richard. Become a monthly badger !!

My favorite podcast

Well ... it’s probably a toss-up between this and Adam Buxton, if I’m honest.
