Things My Mother Never Told Me (... About Lockdown)

Podcast cover
Read more
In the first episode of a new series, comedian Sindhu Vee invites guests to talk about their mothers. Guest across the series include Mae Martin, Guz Khan, Tom Allen and Jayde Adams. Lockdown is making us think a lot more about family, and for many people the parent-child relationship has been flipped. With the older generation more vulnerable to Coronavirus, middle-aged children are now worrying about where their parents are, and if they're behaving responsibly. We're telling them not to stay out late, to stay away from friends (especially those bad influences who won't wear masks), and to eat their vegetables. Sindhu Vee and her guests take a look at that bond, and ask whether the things their mothers taught them have set them up to cope with a global pandemic. This week, "Man Like Mobeen" star Guz Khan shares anecdotes about growing up with a strong matriarch, and what it's like to live next door to her now. Produced by Victoria Lloyd A BBC Studios Production

Drawing on his own family, the third series of Richard Herring’s comedy drama builds on the warm, lively characters and sharply observed family dynamics of previous series.

His affectionate observation of inter generational misunderstanding, sibling sparring and the ties that bind will resonate with anyone who has ever tried to show their dad which remote turns the television on.

Amid the comedy, Richard broaches some more serious highs and lows of family life. In this series, he focuses on the roller coaster ride of first time parenting, how to maintain a long standing marriage and brass rubbing.

Richard Herring is a comedian, writer, blogger and podcaster and the world's premier semi-professional self-playing snooker player.
