Welcome to another episode of HistComPod! This week proffers a very unique and special episode as we take a peek behind the magician’s curtain to interview the rabbit being stuffed into the magician’s hat. This episode features on of the world’s greatest guest*, Britain’s funniest comedian** and the producer of A History of Comedy in Several Objects*** - it’s Matt Hoss (@matthosscomedy). You may best know him as the nasally voice at credits at the end of the show. This week he talks through his experiences at the archive, how he learnt the comedy ropes through Olly and Elspeth, as well as his inevitable restraining orders for Richard Herring, Mark Thomas and Pappy’s! This (meta) episode focuses on Pappy’s interview with Oliver Double (also meta) and they discuss the role of metadata in the archive. It’s a very meta episode.
