    RHLSTP Book Club 33 - The Good Drinker - Richard talks to TV and radio presenter Adrian Chiles about his book about moderating alcohol intake The Good Drinker. They compare their similarly boozy backgrounds, whether everyone really drinks more than the recommended units, if it’s possible to socialise without alcohol and how we can examine the motivations for caning it. Plus Sex Pistol Paul Cook’s plans for his old age and why a pint and a half of Guinness might be the perfect amount to drink.

    RHLSTP 416 - James Acaster

    #416 John the Mouse - Rich has some helpful suggestions to help the footballers support LGBTQ+ rights and is amazed by the press reaction to last week’s podcast. His guest is superlative stand up comedian and podcaster James Acaster. They discuss Nasty Nick’s funeral, the Richard E Grant mystery, why James never retired from stand up and why he’s now inviting hecklers, the weird experience of being a last minute replacement mouse in Cinderella, confusing and angering people with his fantastically funny new book “James Acaster’s Guide to Quitting Social Media”, his new audio sitcom and how his brilliant routine about edgy comics has done no good at all. Plus will James agree with Richard’s conjecture that all music is terrible?

    RHLSTP Book Club 32 - Joe Tracini

    RHLSTP Book Club 32 - Ten Things I Hate About Me - Richard chats with Joe Tracini about his book Ten Things I Hate About Me, a moving, funny and horrifying journey through his Borderline Personality Disorder, how online trolls have nothing on Mick, Joe’s internal voice who provides a negative director’s commentary on everything he does, Joe’s experience growing up not really understanding or liking other kids, how he sought solace in performance and magic, what led him to dance around in a child’s leotard, how far he was prepared to take a fake stomach ache to get off school and why he wrote a book about all this.
    The book is fabulous.

    RHLSTP 415 - Joe Lycett

    #415 Mosquito in the Kitchen - Richard recalls a couple of childhood memories that can’t possibly hare happened. His guest is the king of mischief and righteous anger (who is also very funny) Joe Lycett. They talk about how Joe brought down a Prime Minister, how he was almost arrested for a joke, how his spoof Sue Gray report fooled some members of parliament, how people decided what snacks Santa would be getting, the personal heartbreak behind Joe’s anger about the government’s reaction to Covid, why he literally talked sh*t and the extreme steps Joe is taking to try and persuade David Beckham to withdraw from his role in Qatar. This is an exceptional show which is why we are putting it out as soon as possible.

His guest is the fabulous Ria Lina.

Long live one ball!

Richard Herring’s rahistalapah as the cool kids are saying is everything it’s cracked up to be and more. Here’s to many more healthy seasons.

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.
