Andrew Collings and me are going to start a fortnightly podcast. We're recording the first one next Friday. Keep an eye on http://www.richardherring.com
for details of when and how you can get it into your ears.
My three DVDs, (including the brand new "menage a un" - the best one yet) as well as some Stewart Lee and Simon Munnery products are still available from http://www.gofasterstripe.com
Please buy them if you haven't already in order to help this band of Welsh misfits record even more obscure comedians (I will be filming the 40 show on 21st March at Chapter Arts).
Hope to see you at one of those gigs! Do come and say hello. I'll be in the bar afterwards, drinking tap water!
