I might be misunderstanding how the whole thing works here but I can't see any issue with Herring, or anyone else who charges for their podcasts/downloads, keeping the money themselves. It's their work after all, whatever the quality, and if someone is prepared to pay for it then why is there this expectation that a chunk or all of it should go to charity? Or is it just to coax people who otherwise wouldn't pay into doing so as they'll also be helping good causes? Probably wouldn't pay for Herring's (and certainly not £10 for two, that's insane) but I would for Adam Buxton's and a few others, and I'd see it as the same as paying for any other creative work where it's effectively the creator's income.

Is this replacing the Kickstarter funding, or is it in addition to it?

A slightly awkward episode, that. Not because Holness is difficult - on the contrary, he comes across as a nice chap - but he appears to be quite shy and, by his own admission, isn't very comfortable doing things like this. So Rich has to do quite a lot of heavy lifting.

It's interesting, though, when Holness pretty much admits that Man to Man with Dean Learner was shit, his heart wasn't in it, and that's why he decided to focus on work he's actually interested in. Hence Possum, his impressively bleak and unsettling horror film from a couple of years ago. I hope he gets the chance to write and direct more films.

Is his natural speaking voice flat and nasal like all his characters - I hope so.

It is not. He sounds quite cheerful. Sorry to disappoint.

He played the sax on One In Ten, died last week too. “Can I have a shit Matt”, that was one of his.

Who was the unaired guest who drank too much, referred to before the Holness episode?

After he recently interviewed Jackie Weaver anything is possible.

I’m expecting a call any day now.

Blimey.. that's almost the same as the product he advertises. Serendipity of the highest order. Who would have thought it possible?

Listened today and enjoyed this one. Not a laugh riot but I found the low-key Holness very appealing, and it felt like Herring reined in some of his excesses to match the energy too. At least until the inevitable emergency questions round where I must admit I lost interest.

Like you I found Possum terrifically impressive (and genuinely terrifying). I think about it’s imagery often, and that haunting Radiophonic Workshop soundtrack too. It really is a striking and assured film.

He came off as a shy and very sweet man. A decent fellow with a lot of integrity and pretty high standards concerning what he puts out into the world.

Barry Cryer is up, first one in a while that has been a must listen.

Part way through and it is already gold, as you would expect.

I didn't know old Bazza had a little tradition of phoning up comedians on their birthday to tell them a joke. What lovely man.

Not gonna spoil it but the one he told Herring for his Birthday was a corker.

Got part way through the Bob Mortimer one on train this morning.

As excellent as you would expect, though is there something wrong with Bob's speech? Sound like he has ill fitting false teeth.
