Richard Herring’s Edinburgh Fringe Podcast
RHEFP 2013 #22: Ed Byrne, Bridget Christie and Luke Wright – Slithery Calves. Rich is worried about the bullying that Chelsea Manning might be getting in prison, but is relieved to see Colin is still alive (if he was ever alive). His first guest is Ed Byrne who knows the correct pronunciation of Sudoku and is very happy to talk about Pointless for a long time. It might not be entertaining for you, but Richard is very happy to be there.
Also what is it like spending your life looking quite like Richard’s best friend from school? Ed is unable to really comment on that (even though he does). And there’s more discussion of Doctors and breaking America. Luke Wright is here with a poem. And then Bridget Christie turns up to chat about her blitz on lads’ mags, her calamitous time as a farm hand, the Daily Mail and being the Great Fire of London. And amazingly Richard turns out to be the only interviewer who doesn’t really mention the elephant in the room (which is a rare thing, even when the elephant’s wife is not around).
