Collings & Herrin: Podcast 89

As Richard stares unemployment in the face and Andrew realises his broken earphones have led to a fleeting feeling of punk rock cool on a train, our 89th podcast soldiers on, featuring a whole load of genuine laughter at the twin Daily Mail nostalgia attack of a) AN Wilson for the time "a few years" ago when there was no Halloween and no 200 yard queue outside his local joke-cum-fancy-dress emporium, and b) Quentin Letts for the time, before 1970, when urchins would demand a penny for the guy; the varying levels of pictorial hypocrisy over the iconic photo of weeing student Phil Laing; and the joy, for Richard, of meeting Johnny Ball and Maggie Philbin. For the record: we do not repeat the Rebecca Adlington joke like all the newspapers who claim to be offended by it.
