In this, the 81st Collings & Herrin podcast, we attempt the impossible: to make it even better than last week’s absolute classic. Along the way, we discuss popular boys’ names from Jack to Mohammed; the etiquette of going along to see Calendar Girls onstage in the West End; the etiquette of half falling asleep during a massage; the dangers of being the Radio Times Film Editor; and the likelihood of Derren Brown Mind Control picking the winning Lottery numbers TONIGHT without first buying all the Lottery tickets. We also manfully resist the urge to pack the podcast in early and go and play with Richard’s Beatles Rock Band game, just to see if John Lennon would really like it were it explained to him on the steps of the Dakota Building in 1980. We also suggest a potentially funny scene that any future filmmaker dramatising the life of Josef Fritzl can use if they want to. Alright, I do. I am a div.
