Richard Herring getting twitchy in lockdown: 2020

A few nuggets in the recent blog - RHLSTP (or possibly podcasts in general) currently makes up the bulk of his income; a recent month had a million downloads for RHLSTP; and guests get a fee of £500 (assuming this is a flat fee and not dependent on who the guest is).

His blog continues to be probably the most revealing thing he does (hopefully not painfully so for his children as they get older, although judging by their current behaviour they are chips off the Cheddar block), and he also appeared as a guest on a dog-walking-chat-blog, which is an interesting listen: https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/walking-the-dog-with-emily-dean/id1220510307?i=1000571076117

Vague threats of doing another standup show/tour again, wouldn't blame him if he didn't though.

Yeah, that one really worked as an episode, they clicked instantly and were chatting like mates. Kunt is great, i love his low effort podcast 'Acceptable in the 80s'

The 'four series of Fist of Fun' bit is weird, but maybe it's the Telegraph sub combining the TMWRNJ series.

Yes this caught my eye, i guess it must be that. 13 eps in each run as i remember, so 2500 per episode. Not bad, but look at how much Sky were prepared to throw at him for just writing, not performing. Now we know why many top comedians were prepared to work for them, eye-watering money for something that was bound to be unmemorable in the future.

I don't want to know how much David Baddiel got for Baddiel's Syndrome, I think it might make me cry.

Another £750,000 for playing the postman.

The publisher might still end up in profit though, is that right? If his deal is he makes 50p per copy and the publishers taking is £2.50, he may not sell enough to pay back the advance at 50p per copy but the publisher might still end up in profit with their cut of it

That could be true! I am more used to a profit-sharing model but what you say is actually more traditional. Very fair point.

Why, what have his kids been up to?

That was my favourite episode in ages. I still listen to every new RHLSTP, I find it comforting or something.

Lots of kid stuff - just meant that they probably won't turn into shrinking violets that will be embarrassed at having their father's (and to a lesser extent their own) inner and outer monologues broadcast in perpetuity on the internet. His daughter sometimes pops up in the Twitch of Fun trailers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikPlrMPiXbg.

I'm very unsure of people putting their children online when they're too young to realise the possible implications of it later in life - Katherine Ryan was notoriously protective of her daughter whereas some professional 'Youtube families' share pretty much everything in video format on a daily basis - but RH maybe has the balance right.
