Emergency Questions

If you could go into a chrysalis and turn into anything else – you can melt in there if you want – and you still have your memories, what would you turn into on the other side?

FP: I want to say some sort of animal but am I locked into this? *CD asks why FP doesn’t simply choose dog when this is clearly what FP would prefer.* Why don’t you shut up, Celeste? Go buy a cup of shut up. *CD recounts an occasion where FP messaged CD stating that she didn’t want to buy a dog; she wished to be a dog.* I said that to you in confidence. I do have a lot of affinity with dogs, possibly too much. I just like a plucky dog. I think what I’ll say is I’ll pencil in dog and I’ll give it a bit more thought. Then as soon as the technology is confirmed, I’ll give you my final answer. But for now I think a dog. A bit like Tintin’s dog, Snowy. In fact, I’ll just say Snowy.

CD: I’d just like to be some kind of athlete, maybe. In my – this is so embarrassing – but when lockdown first happened… I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I was like, um, I’m going to learn how to do a backflip. And I – there’s something in my head. Occasionally when I’m running – I live in Ally Pally and it’s all hills and, um, I’ve recently quit smoking. I’m trying to, like, get healthy and stuff. And I’m always, sort of, pathetically dragging myself up this hill and getting overtaken by walkers and, anyway… And I just have fancies about just being really fit. And if there’s a really banging track on I’ll just daydream about, like, backflipping onto the dance floor. I’d love to be just some sort of gymnast, I guess.


Guests are Celeste Dring and Freya Parker.

Although this episode was released after the episode featuring Ardal O’Hanlon, it was actually recorded immediately after the episode featuring Deborah Frances-White.

RH thanks Kickstarter contributors.

Kickstarter contributor Louise Trost did not request anything be said.

RH reveals that he told David Mitchell they were considering giving water bottles to the guests as gifts.

Because David Mitchell noted a dislike for water bottles and a love of very large mugs, RH gives a mug instead.

RH notes the severe decrease in DVD sales during the pandemic.
