On a mission from pod - Edinburgh 10 x10: Shows from podcasters
1. Richard Herring
Like a real-life version of the Truman Show, Richard Herring’s entire waking life seems to be available to download. His output made headlines recently when Stephen Fry choose Herring’s Leicester Square Podcast to reveal that depression led him to try to take his own life last year. Now Herring returns to the chat show format for these shows – and they are usually a lot more cheerful than that (as, indeed was the bulk of the Fry episode). The Stand, 14:10. Meanwhile, his stand-up show We’re All Going To Die, is on at the Pleasance at 20:00.
