Published: 22nd May 2019.   Length: 77 mins.

RHLSTP #212 Matt Forde - Brian Clough's Dangerous Remedy For Eczema. Richard explains why he is constantly upsetting businesses who ask him to fill in surveys, before meeting this week's guest, impressionist and satirist, who is still unable to write jokes about the future, Matt Forde. Find out about the extraordinary day where Matt was mentioned in parliament, diagnosed with a surprising disease and chased down the street by a spitting Finn; the rollercoaster of verbal abuse of being a child mascot for Nottingham Forest in 1993; whether Nottingham has anything that isn't imaginary to be proud of; interviewing Blair and Farage; March based predictions for what will be happening in May; how topical it is possible to be; and how broken the political system might be; and how 650 idiots might save it. Plus a doctor's blasé remedy for a fatal allergy and the hubris of claiming you know everything about Mark Lawrenson.
