RHLSTP #162: Katy Wix - Burned Bunting. Richard hits comedy gold and finds the person with the perfect job to riff about for as long as an hour if he wishes, but he doesn't wish to, as he has the multi-talented comedian, writer and actor Katy Wix to chat with. They discuss clammy handshakes, horror car crashes, dragon-based misunderstandings, working with Dick and Dom, Princess Fergiana, Hattie Jacques, meeting Dire Straits, an 11-year-old girl's pebble, the professionalism of the young, and cruelty to tadpoles. And the audience decides on who should be invited on to the next series.
