Very good episode tonight, guests are Mark Steel, Matthew Norman and Richard Coles. The recording was great, they were all really smart and funny. I love Richard Coles - the Communards singer who became a priest. He’s just a fantastic character and a lovely man, and I have never felt more like a Radio 4 host than the moment when Richard told a story which began, “I was chatting with the Bishop of Iceland…”
The received opinions to be attacked are:
THE BANKERS ARE TO BLAME FOR GETTING US INTO THIS MESS
PEOPLE WHO GO TO PSYCHICS ARE GULLIBLE
BRITISH CUISINE IS BETTER NOW THAN IT WAS IN THE 1970s.
It’s a really funny episode, worth a listen: 6.30pm, Tuesday April 14th, Radio 4.
