#316 Skating With Eight Year Olds. Richard is back at the Clapham Grand in front of a virtual audience of humans and potentially racist puppets. His guest is his ex-Fubar radio sidekick Lou Sanders. They chat about Lou's new TV show Unforgiveable, why it's good to discuss your most shameful moments, whether Jesus was on magic mushrooms, parental interruptions to adolescent shenanigans, why drunk and unpredictable Lou found it hard to get TV work, the power of cuddles and having your own branded condoms.
