#250 CBE? - Back to the Winchester Theatre Royal for the second week running and Richard is annoyed at his child's teacher's money-making schemes. His guest was also the final guest of the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe run where Richard tried to run the podcast into the ground (dare he do it again?) it's John Kearns. It's a giddy and self-indulgent podcast where most of the material is deemed too shoddy or contentious for broadcast, but takes in a possible return for a much-loved comedy hero; the possible return of Top Coppers; the leap of faith required to follow your comedy path; tracing Raymond Briggs; disappointing children at the Science Museum; and whether John will be getting a lift home. It's weird, it's wonderful and it feels like the birth of an amazing, awkward, intergenerational double act. If you enjoy it half as much as Richard seems to then you should have a good time.
