In Podcast 166, Richard takes sluggish to new levels and Andrew singularly fails to awaken the Kracken of his usually ebullient personality, even when he reveals that Malcolm X wrote a prototype of the famous joke, “I’m not saying I’m Jesus, that is for other people to say,” and tries to recruit him for further singalongs, including The Dambusters Theme. Further attempts are made to enliven Richard for what must surely be our last podcast if he keeps this up, including a potentially lively discussion about politically correct censorship of dogs and centipedes, during which Richard inadvertently conceives his next two BBC pitches. (You’ll have to listen to find out what they are.) Meanwhile, his actual BBC comedy drama script languishes unwritten for over an hour, with the last word written – “help” – taking on a whole new profound significance. We can only apologise. Blame Ricky Gervais at the Seinfeld aftershow. And yes, that is the turquoise plastic fork that is the envy of tiny babies everywhere.
