We have done several Heresy recordings now, and they’re going very well. It’s funny how different the shows are from each other. Some feel like broad comedy with lots of very good jokes from the guests, some feel like proper debate shows with serious opinions strongly expressed; some have moments of scratchy combativeness, some feel like happy pub discussions with everyone trying to make each other laugh. It’s a mixed bag - like its host. But I think (as far as I can tell) that they are all very entertaining, I’m proud of what we’ve done so far.
It starts going out tonight on Radio 4 at 6.30pm with the artist Grayson Perry, the political journalist Julia Hartley Brewer and the comedian Rufus Hound, arguing against the received opinions
THE LARGE HADRON COLLIDER IS A WASTE OF MONEY
WOMEN LOOK BETTER IN MEN’S CLOTHES THAN MEN DO IN WOMEN’S
AN ARTIST WHO DOESN’T MAKE HIS OWN WORK IS A FRAUD.
I remember it being a very lively conversation, challenging and funny; do tune in if you’re near a radio at that time, and let us know what you think.
