When he brought it up in the podcast, I wasn't aware if he had talked about it before, but Herring completely glossed over it and carried on, which, fair enough, he might have been a bit caught off-guard and Herring is well known for not jumping upon revelations like that from his guests, but in this case, him skipping by it felt really insensitive. It seemed Terry Hall was opening up and Herring just didn't want to know, which given the subject matter felt really irresponsible. Is there not something to be said for having some sort of "duty of care" towards his guests?

It was spoken about again a bit later, clearly Terry had stuff he wanted to get off his chest.

That article just reports he mentions it in the podcast. It was published on the 30th.

Yeah he brought it up again later himself, he clearly wanted to talk about it.  I don't blame Herring for moving on initially, we know he's not the world's most gifted interviewer but I'm not quite sure who could have necessarily known how to handle that in whatever the correct manner should be.  Perhaps Herring in the moment didn't want to seemingly milk the situation, after all, there may have been a few revelations from his guests before, but have any ever been quite so harrowing?

Quite a bombshell from Terry Hall dropped in the podcast.  Has he talked about the abduction publicly before this?

Good old Adam. Always rooting for him.

I'm reading Herring's memoir 'How Not to Grow Up'. I'll let you know if it's any good.

As mentioned, it's just a collection of stories that he's already told a billion times - If I remember correctly he revisits the one about the fight with a University lecturer.

My copy had a weird bit of editing where a woman's name changes mid-anecdote. It was a bit confusing at first but it appears he wanted to disguise her identity by changing her name, only to give away the real name.

let me guess... it's also got some slightly creepy anecdotes about going out with Julia Sawalha.

I read that book in the days following someone purloining my wife, so I went off Rich a bit, I must admit.

R.E.G is a big name for Rich, mind.

I hope it's like the Brian Blessed one because you know Grant is going to have excellent stories and he needs to be given space to tell them and not penned in by a lot of emergency questions. I think Herring will have the sense to just sit back.
