Prospect Magazine reviews RHLSTP

Richard Herring’s Leicester Square, Theatre Podcast (RHLSTP), Go Faster Stripe

RHLSTP, as it’s known to its fans, is probably the best comedy interview podcast going. It’s been around for a while but has really hit its stride with guests including comedian London Hughes, Jon Ronson and Brian Blessed. Herring’s a deliberately shambolic interviewer, with long, rambling encounters propped up by a bizarre list of “emergency questions,” but this style has a way of bringing out surreal anecdotes and stunning revelations from his guests. The interview with Louis Theroux, who is on uncharacteristically open and wise-cracking form, is unmissable.
