RHLSTP #150: Sara Pascoe - Hello, Still a Feminist? Rich details how he considered stealing a man's identity to become a chartered accountant. Perhaps it would have been for the best. But instead he's back for the 150th official episode of the show that the Cool Kids call RHLSTP with one of his all-time favourite guests, Sara Pascoe. She has written a phenomenal book called Animal which you really should buy for all teenage girls, all teenage boys and everyone else too. There's some pretty serious chat about the chemistry of love, biology, abortion, the future of the world, whether things are getting better or worse and terrible human nature. But it's contemplative and positive and proves that Richard isn't actually the worst man on the planet, plus there's fun stuff about Just A Minute in a brain scanning machine and Sunday Brunch (with surprise guest) and a brilliant new game show where there's guaranteed to be one woman on every week. Plus all the Emergency Questions lead us to serious answers. It's an amazing end to what has surely been the best series of RHLSTP so far.
