The loose and fun concept allows for much banter but also a nice insight into the guest’s actual life and philosophy. Somewhat surprising sometimes (for instance, I’ve always liked Victoria Coren Mitchell but now, I am slightly terrified of her - still funny though). James & Ed’s interactions are those born from a solid friendship and I feel like I am a bit part of it now, which is a nice and slightly stalky feeling. Loved loved loved the Jack Brayer episode - looks like Kenneth was a nice guy all along. Only downside of the podcast is that I can’t order papadums without having a mentalist bellowing ‘PAPADUMS OR BREAD’ in my head. Well done lads!

Brilliant

In my top 5. The Greg Davies Christmas special is one of the best episodes in my opinion. Even the adverts are brilliantly delivered!

The best podcast to exist.

I often get bored of podcasts, especially ones that require a lot of concentration. This podcast is the exact opposite, it’s a lighthearted and comedic series.I find myself trying to quietly laugh at my desk at work without looking like a complete idiot. Truly hilarious. Hearing guests’ anecdotes is just as Some of my favourite episodes which have truly made me LOL, include:- Mike Skinner, Kerry Godliman, Victoria Coren Mitchell, Tom Allen & Jordan Banjo.

Sold out

Managed ten minutes of season three before switching back to RHLSTP due to the fact the first guest is selling something and therefore not a true guest. I wonder how much they got paid?

Foody Buddy Cop Movie for the ears

It’s like a buddy cop movie for the ears! Teaming up two comedians (Ones Serious, Ones a little/a lot mental) both are on the hunt for the perfect meal and will round up any suspect to squeeze them for all their food secrets all to entertain!!!Such a great podcast and a great way to learn about someone from their food choices....bring on the Dave TV programme.....please!! 😉

Love it!

As a student, the need for something to motivate my mornings is imperative. Fortunately for me, this podcast exists! Laugh-out-loud funny, witty, and still somehow calming, Ed and James act as the perfect hosts, playing expertly off of the guest to maintain a playful and entertaining tone throughout the show, regardless of the nature and preferred comedic style of the new visitor.As a sleep deprived art student, I thank you both for the existence of this show. Bit of a lifesaver.

It’s all Ed’s fault!

I liked the pod until Ed decided to start telling people they were wrong for liking meat cooked a certain way! I can’t stand him now!

So funny!

Thank you for cheering me up on some long journeys across the north. I know no matter how bad days can be, you guys always cheer me up with wonderfully funny conversations about food and life with your guests. Love the guests too, good variety, not just all comedians. Thanks again and please keep doing them.
