RHLSTP #158: Simon Brodkin - Vagina Cash Machine. Richard has been belittled by a scaffolder, and is plotting his revenge. Perhaps he should send this week's guest after him, it's serial prankster and character comedian Simon Brodkin. We get all the behind-the-scenes info on his recent quest to give Theresa May her P45, plus stories about Blatter, Trump and what the police do if they arrest you but like you. Plus is it OK to ask Christmas Emergency Questions to someone of Jewish heritage? What if they're known for their artistic risks? Plus the incredible story of why Brodkin had to repeat his medical exams!
