RHLSTP #229 - Herring:Sheen. Rich has come back from his holiday for this and why wouldn't he? But will his guest turn up this time? The bad news, if he doesn't, is that Nish Kumar is ill... there's no jeopardy here, obviously he turns up or there'd be no podcast. The guest is the fantastic UFOologist Michael Sheen. The pair discuss why the best bit has been missed out of the new War Of The Worlds; how Michael would get inside Richard; finding out you're not in a film when you get to the premiere; the big questions raised by the film Passengers; and whether its worth having a robot with no downstairs; a missed Pointless opportunity and an audacious quiz show plan; and what motivated Sheen's decision to reconnect with his childhood home of Port Talbot. It's funny, interesting with a strong homoerotic charge. Plus they talk about Tron. What more do you want?
