Richard Herring’s Leicester Square, Theatre Podcast (RHLSTP), Go Faster Stripe
RHLSTP, as it’s known to its fans, is probably the best comedy interview podcast going. It’s been around for a while but has really hit its stride with guests including comedian London Hughes, Jon Ronson and Brian Blessed. Herring’s a deliberately shambolic interviewer, with long, rambling encounters propped up by a bizarre list of “emergency questions,” but this style has a way of bringing out surreal anecdotes and stunning revelations from his guests. The interview with Louis Theroux, who is on uncharacteristically open and wise-cracking form, is unmissable.
