Quote from: Mobius on May 08, 2022, 11:24:54 PMI still fondly remember bits of the Collings & Herrin podcast. The fox eating a nappy full of baby shit, taking the piss out of Richard Littlejohn. "I paid a pound!!" Hearing about their Edinburgh adventures each year. The pigeon outside the window, the builders.

Quote from: JamesTC on May 08, 2022, 11:17:03 PMThe reunion on RHLSTP was great, but it was a shame that Collins felt so keen to slip right back into the old routine and Herring seemed very resistant. My dad mentioned the RHLSTP to me, saying he didn't like Collins, but I had to explain that it was him trying to get back their old chemistry.

Quote from: Cold Meat Platter on May 08, 2022, 12:47:03 AMI've noticed he seems to think people will be impressed by his remembering things. The 'genealogy' of Jesus in Christ on a Bike
Quote from: Mobbd on May 09, 2022, 02:49:57 PMDo you really think that? I'd like to think it was something along those lines (though the more hostile chemistry of the later episodes, the second CD, and the BBC shows was never my favourite) but it felt to me like Collins was still genuinely real-life sore about the breakup and about the sacrifices he'd made for the relationship (i.e. looking unprofessional) that never paid off beyond a few years of fun and hijinks. It made me feel quite sad.
Quote from: pigamus on May 09, 2022, 06:30:40 PMAnother thing about Herring's supposed contentment with his lot and his career etc. - if that's really true, would he really get so upset about Collings doing some piddling 6 Music show with Josie Long? I mean it's pretty small beer isn't it?
Quote from: Twilkes on May 09, 2022, 03:24:13 PMWasn't Collins always a journalist and writer most foremostly anyway? There's a difference between a comedian and someone who can be funny, so while he did radio show banter with Stuart Maconie I always thought it odd that he teamed up with Richard Herring. Only listened to a few clips of it just now, and Herrin sounds like a comedian doing a bit while Collings sounds like a normal person trying to be funny, not saying he's not successful but there's no heightened-self that you usually get with Comedians with a capital C.
Quote from: Replies From View on May 08, 2022, 08:09:33 AMIt annoys me, because there are amazing podcasts out there, brilliant ideas and superb content, that'll never develop the audience base they deserve because there is now so much stuff to wade through. Whereas Richard Herring is almost wilfully producing the shittest material he can come up with - material that is self-consciously tedious and unfunny - and he knows it'll have listeners due to the sheer inertia of his fanbase.
Quote from: somersetchris on May 09, 2022, 09:59:14 PMSome really incredible snobbery here. So people only listen to RHLSTP because they're too thick to know better? Do you have a podcast by any chance? Because you seem very bitter that people listen to him when it really doesn't affect you.I listen to a huge number of podcasts, and RHLSTP is often among them. I now know I am just too stupid to know any better and am not an adult capable of making my own decisions about what I listen to.
Quote from: somersetchris on May 09, 2022, 08:29:44 PMI used to like him because he wrote for Select which I loved, but then I read his autobiography and went off him. It's called 'Where Did It All Go Right' and is basically about coming from a fairly ordinary background and everything working out very well for him. It's not a scintillating read.
Quote from: Ferris on May 10, 2022, 12:06:12 AMHomeopathy seems like a benign form of lunacy these days doesn't it? None of this crypto-fascist NFT-selling anti-vax stuff, just slightly insane beliefs about water that essentially harm no one.
Quote from: Ferris on May 09, 2022, 11:25:05 PMHypothetical - would any new podcaster producing the same material get anywhere? Moving stones around and playing me1 vs me2 snooker? Why or why not, and how does that relate to Herring?
Quote from: Gurke and Hare on May 10, 2022, 12:37:57 AMHarm no one until they tell people to do it instead of, say, chemotherapy.
Quote from: PlanktonSideburns on May 10, 2022, 08:50:41 AMAgree with lots of the criticism here, but still find all his stuff to be less lazy, inane and smug than acaster and gamble talking about their favourite snacks inbetween ASMR crunching and water pouring sounds with their DAVE pals
