#362 You Start Monday! - Wow, what’s this, a remote RHLSTP whilst we’re still allowed (at the time of recording) to go outside. We’re filling a little gap in our schedule with some remote pods, this one from the 6th January at 11am LA time with too gorgeous comedy behemoth Peter Baynham. The old flatmates discuss bad chat up lines, the freedom of p…
 
#36 Creation - In an interview from Richard Herring's Meaning of Life, Rich talks to Marcus Chown about the creation of the universe and whether science knows any more than anyone else.

#361 Hair Length Apartheid - It’s a New Year (for you, though Richard is just pretending) and Rich looks back on his weird and unsettling 2021, but definitely sees the positives in it all.

#34 Why Won't You Tell Us Your Exact Address? - Rich has some surprising and life-changing news to share, but that doesn't mean that gloves (and pants if it's cold enough) aren't off for the annual sparring match with TV's Sarah Millican. Who will win the flirtatious/offensive battle of wits this time. You'll find out why she appeared on TV without…
 
#359 A Face For All Occasions - Richard is in giddy mood as he meets a member of the audience. His guest is living legend and national treasure Miriam Margolyes.

#33 A Bad Dream - Richard discusses some zombie based movie ideas he has had, before introducing the dry-witted and incredulous Diane Morgan who isn't quite sure what she's let herself in for. And it's a surreal, dream-like and occasionally mildly awkward chat about working with Ken Campbell; Richard's failure to see one of Diane's first performanc…
 
#358 Irish Unicorn - Richard has an idea that will revolutionise football and is having to explain to his daughter why history killed all the famous women. His guest is academic and broadcaster Emma Dabiri. They talk about growing up as almost the only black person in Ireland, why white people don’t like being told what to do next, Richard’s “All L…
 
#32 Gaybomb - An almost imperceptibly slimmer than the beginning of the series Richard Herring takes the stage to find a slightly sinister pair of men in the front row. What do they do? Do we really want to know? No, because the guest this week is journalist, screen-writer and broadcaster Jon Ronson who is a man with some good stories. Find out wha…
 
#357 Shamgel - Richard wonders if the man who wrote the Grange Hill theme might have been hoodwinking us all along. His guest is the formidable Dragon, Deborah Meaden.

#31 Fattening Dormice - After last week's headline-grabbing show, Richard feels under pressure to coax revelations from his guest, classicist Mary Beard, but is a bit distracted by transport and atrocity based magazines. Instead he mainly talks about penises in Pompeii, realising that if only he could travel in time that he would be the most popula…
 
#356 Gravity - Rich has had what he thought might be the most middle class accident, but he is wrong. His guest is a listener who has won a competition to be on the show, the Dorian Grey of morning TV, Ben Shephard. They discuss how science proves Ben a better singer than a West End star, whether there’s a man with a broom behind the Tipping Point …
 
#30 Peter Serafinowic(h)z - Jeddy. Rich and his wife have made the ultimate commitment: they've been through their DVD collections and are getting rid of any duplicates.

#355 Mind Your Language - Richard is excited by the upcoming film Wonka and has some other ideas for origin story films. His guest is the Sidesplitting Phil Wang.

#29 Mango Mist - This week's guest has had a drink with Morrissey, seen a member of Madness drying his bum hair and has failed to discuss time travel with Gary Sparrow's best mate. It's Sean Hughes.

#28 Death is Nice - Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith. With the world in shock about the accusations about an ex-BBC employee with long hair and an odd home life who raised money for charity, Richard is keeping his head down, but he is joined by the slightly odd men behind such hits as The League of Gentlemen and Psychoville, Reece Shearsmith an…
 
#353 It Was The 90s! - Richard has been tossing logs and that’s literally it for this week, so he talks to his audience for the first time in ages.
