#332 The Problem with Avocados - Rich is overwhelmed to be back on stage in front of an actual audience at the wonderful Clapham Grand. His guest is comedian Geoff Norcott. The pair discuss working with Comedy Dave, the weirdness of the British class system, Geoff's tour of Afghanistan, the limitations of stereotypes in comedy, whether you're allowed to disagree with your tribe and why you should read Geoff's book whether you're Tory or not (and maybe particularly if you're not). Can the left ever win? And is the kudos of being the first person on Mars worth the lonely death.
