Recording just before Christmas on Plague Island, Richard wonders what kind of UK listeners will be living in when this is broadcast (in a fortnight), but his guest is legendary actor, author, comedian and expired food eating hobbyist Alexei Sayle.

They discuss finding a goose with Keith Allen, having one of the top ten comedy shows of 2020 (but how many were there in total?), Alexei's new online shows involving politics and cycling and an analysis of the film Siesta. Plus whether the left will ever stop fighting itself and think about fighting the right, mortality, the death of ambition and remaining inventive and fresh as a comedian.
