Peter Capaldi • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #555

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by one of Scotland's finest, the acting heavyweight that is PETER CAPALDI!Depending on where you caught Peter on his timeline, you may know him as Malcolm Tucker, Dr Who, or even Oldsen if you've seen Local Hero. Point is - Peter's been busy for decades, and continues to be so. He's also an awesome hang, as you will find out as Pip gets a good hour or so in his company. They get into all sorts, including of course the roles and acting experiences, but also the wide world of culture wars and nonsence arguments, problems with leadership, maintaining good vibes on set, London as a crime backdrop, the greatness of Glasgow, Lewis Capaldi and his relation to him, making diorama studios as a kid, and the hand of destiny in his acting career. NOT avoiding the hypetrain for the show brought to you by he and his wife, Criminal Record on Apple TV! So much to enjoy. Better step to it.PIP'S PATREON PAGE if you're of a supporting natureIMDBINSTAGRAMTARDIS WIKIDOCTOR WHOCRIMINAL RECORDTHE THICK OF ITSPEECH DEVELOPMENT WEBSTOREPIP TWITCH • (music stuff)PIP INSTAGRAMPIP TWITTERPIP PATREONPIP IMDBPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

Kingsley Ben-Adir • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #554

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by acting great KINGSLEY BEN-ADIR!A very good time to catch Ben, as he's been on a whirlwind promo run for Bob Marley: One Love of late - but this is someone who would have been a Distraction Pieces guest soon enough, whatever the weather... Don't let the low-key tea-drinking nature fool you for a second, this is a busy person who has been grinding for a minute. The journey's been long and winding, with an early route to be found in acting which was a perfect alignment at that age and juncture, with a ton of work between those early days and now. Not only do we have a pre-Bob role in Barbie to look into, we get to hear all about playing the role as Bob Marley, and the weight of such a role is not lost on him for a second. From meeting the family and friends to being party to the original demos, and the history of the band, and so much more. It sounds like a wild film to be at the front of. Oh and cold water swimming makes an appearance too!

David Holmes • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #553

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by stuntperson and all round beam of light DAVD HOLMES!You might have come to know David through the documentary 'The Boy Who Lived', which goes into great detail about his life and the path that led to his stunt work and career in the industry. If you have indeed seen it, you'll know that he's someone who has been through some immense experiences, and lived through one literally life changing one. But David hasn't disappeared from the light or retreated, when it might seem like an entirely understandable reaction. He's gained power and confidence through the strong friendships and relationships he made in his film career, and this has fueled his evolution in no small part, into where he currently finds himself. This is an awesome conversation with someone whose outlook will inspire and delight, and as David himself says, he is "handi-capable, not handicapped". Of course, there are moments of trauma that he wll live with, and these reveal themselves in the conversation, so perhaps take note going in... But don't miss out on this one - it's a classic Distraction Pieces if ever there was one.PIP'S PATREON PAGE if you're of a supporting natureTHE BOY WHO LIVEDINSTAGRAMCAMEOHOSPITAL GOFUNDMECUNNING STUNTS podcastSPEECH DEVELOPMENT WEBSTOREPIP TWITCH • (music stuff)PIP INSTAGRAMPIP TWITTERPIP PATREONPIP IMDBPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

Marjolein Robertson • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #552

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by Shetland superhero, comic, folk expert and Twitch-er MARJOLEIN ROBERTSON!A fabulous one here which branches out on all sorts of tangents but ONLY for the advancement of the podcast itself. A wonderful meandering and weaving conversation which radiates with history, fun and warmth and will surely leave you with a glorious impression of Marjolein if you're yet unacquainted. Marjolein is up in the top ten of Scottish cultural contributors and you'll understand why pretty quickly - this is someone with a firm connection to and grasp on history, of the Shetlands and surrounding areas, and you'll hear a ton of things you likely didn't know, nestled in among some excellent chat around comedy, Twitch, Edinburgh, and all that goodness.

Andrew Haigh • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #551

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by esteemed writer and director ANDREW HAIGH!A lovely episode for anyone inspired by the craft and creativity of film making, and you know Pip's a geek for this stuff so it won't be a surface level chat by any means! Andrew's been making roundly applauded films for decades now, including 45 Years, Lean On Pete, and the new All Of Us Strangers, but even if you are unfamiliar with those you'll find MUCH to celebrate here. Andrew goes in on all of it, including changes since 2011, representation and being known, pre-conceieved notions regarding gay sex, communication among British people, the art of the edit and when to cut, art and commerce, emotion, the metaphorical dating agency of being a director and the casting of films, Q&As and so much more.

Samuel T. Herring (Future Islands) • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #550

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by Future Islands lead vocalist, writer, actor and rapper SAMUEL T. HERRING!What an episode... Samuel was generous enough with his time to give us a full 90mins-ish of pure goodness which will entirely appeal to already-down Future Islands appreciators, but will likely turn a few ears towards their music if not already familiar. Saumel's presence is warm, fun and witty and it's a brilliantly entertaining ride through thoughts about performance, influence, emotion. big life moments, rap music (he's a proper head, have no doubt), ambition, 'that' performance, hurry up and wait, acting, zombie state while on tour, and whole bunch more.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by film-maker and actor JOEL EDGERTON!A fabulous episode with Pip and Joel, as we hear the two of them get down deep into the whole mess of life, film, and everything else. As you will expect it's a wide ranging and very honest one, delving into the aspects of pandemic life as an actor and - well - human being, as well as parenthood, empathy, understanding, emotion (including when acting and non-acting seep into one another), roles, Barrys Jenkins and Keoghan, projects, strategies, the world as a whole, and what's on the horizon.

Films Of The Year 2023 • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #548

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!The yearly tradition boldly continues as Pip celebrates a year of incredible cinema with his FILMS OF THE YEAR 2023!One of those traditions that comes around every 12 months and makes you realise how much you missed it and how much you wanted to hear it again... A glorious and positive indulgence in a year of awesome movies from all over the world, and all across the spectrum or galaxy of the human soul. As always with this list, just a gentle reminder that if you don't agree, that is all good. But it is not a wrong or faulty list - it's just someone else's. You totally don't need this explained to you but you might be surprised at how people still think Pip's opinions are declarative statements and not opinions. In fact - put simply, to echo the Speech Development code - "We may not be for you, and that's fine". But ya know, with opinions about films. ANYWAY - goddamn, just enjoy the podcast and see how the thoughts of Yung Pip chime in with your own. And enjoy some dope recommendations in the bargain!

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!A glorious episode and a long time in the making - this week Pip is joined by acting hero THOMAS TURGOOSE!A long one in the making not only because this is the longest This Is England reformation in history, but because literally they have been trying to arrange this one for years. And s you will have surely guessed, it delivers on all counts. Thomas is great company, and as a podcast host himself you know for in for some good business. They get to everything including said podcast, the This Is England squad, working with Shane Meadows, synchronicities and serendipties, adulting, interests in film and cinema, football and the wide world contained within, and his general career arc.

Rosie Marcel (the lost episode) • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #545

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Pip is joined for the second time this week by the wonderful actor that is ROSIE MARCEL!YES this is the much hinted at and inquired about episode from the archives that was never aired, for reasons that - with the passage of time - seem trivial, but at the time itself were very sensitive indeed. What's cool about hearing this episode after the previous newer recording with Rosie is how the ground was looking back then in an acting as well as very personal sense. It's what's cool about hearing two podcasts consecutively which have a space of about 4 or 5 years between them, in fact. So many questions answered, so many still left hanging, and so much life on display - it gets pretty existential when you think about it - so without any further rumination, let's leave the investigation to you! As always, a glorious chat with Rosie, and such a lot to dig into, and make sure you look at the dog charities and causes out there too if you're in the market for a dog friend. A ton of options. But also don't hurry it at this time of year - you know the old saying eh...

Rosie Marcel • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #544

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by the incredible acting treasure that is ROSIE MARCEL!You might know Rosie from her role as Jac on 600 episodes of Holby City - but it's entirely possible that you know her from the vast IMDB list and have never seen an episode of Holby City in your life... OR maybe this is the first time you've seen the name. Well, it goes without saying that Rosie is a genuine treat to have on the podcast. There is a bonus coming on Friday too, which is like a rare studio cutting room floor discovery type episode, where she and Pip recorded back around 2019 but it was never put out. So hopefully that sets up a bit of where this episode's energy and spirit can be traced back to. You'll hear about so much, including going from work to no work, losing a friend in the character of Jac (and how she found out about her role coming to and end), transitions and lifestyle pivots, cold water benefits and rescuing dogs via the Pack Project (link below!). SO MUCH MORE TOO.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by the excellent director WILLIAM OLDROYD!Another perfect meeting here for Pip and all film heads who listen to this (and as always, anyone into creative process and inspiration), as William talks about all of the intricacies and moments of lightning in a bottle that come together to result in amazing cinema - including his past movie Lady Macbeth and present movie Eileen. It is though, of course, usually not by accident as so much hard work goes into allowing these moments to happen, and working with fine cast members always goes a huge distance. This is a great little masterclass in what can be possible, how things merge and collaborate, and how memorable films are prepared, made, and their legacy. And how the cold makes everything better.

Bilal balances many different hats including acting, podcasts, comedy and streaming too so it's fascinating to hear how all that works. So much, including the Fringe and the complexities within, streaming and comedy in pandemic times, out of sync reviews, Chris Morris and the usefulness of satire, Pro Evo Soccer, endometriosis (check the link below for more on that), podcasting and finding the fun in acting.

At time of this episode that's 5 years. How much can happen in 5 years? Well there's a fine Bowie jam about that but in this case, it involves a career arc of launching into standup. No easy thing to do, as literally anyone will tell you in comedy, but Josh has taken to it with grace and finesse, made an awesome Fringe show, and rocked a bunch of venues up and down the country. All while pumping out astute and hilarious TikToks like nobody's business. Hear a new Josh who speaks with insight, reflection and a delightful self deprecation that always appeals.

Here we catch up with Emerald in promotionland to hear about her new film Saltburn, which we'll see in cinemas around mid-November.

Lowkey • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #539

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by commentator, activist and rapper LOWKEY!This is Lowkey's second appearance on Distraction Pieces, in what feels right now like a section that ought to be there every episode. Lowkey is very well versed on matters involving Israel and Palestine and the situation past and present, so this episode was recorded a day before it was released to be as up to date as possible. Pip caught up with Lowkey at 10pm on a Monday, and if you heard his previous appearance, you'll know that this is the kind of episode where you'll almost want to keep a pen and pad nearby to take notes. Of course it's good to have a wide range of views and opinions, but it's fair to say that Lowkey has a very well informed and sharp understanding of history and a present awareness that not everyone does. So in a time where you can hear random unfiltered opinion (and often opinion which wasn't invited either), it's a relief to have some sane, balanced and calm tones to hear on what's going on. Let's leave it to the episode to speak for itself but definitely give this one some time and attention, and by all means share far and wide.DON'T FORGET PIP ON PATREON if you're of a supporting natureLOWKEY IGLOWKEY TWITTERMINT PRESS NEWS / WatchdogEPISODE 407 w/ LowkeySPEECH DEVELOPMENT WEBSTOREPIP TWITCH • (music stuff)PIP INSTAGRAMPIP TWITTERPIP PATREONPIP IMDBPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

Aodh Breathnach • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #538

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by documentary and film maker AODH BREATHNACH!Just quickly - a little assist on pronunciations when talking about this episode - AODH is like a capital 'A', and BREATHNACH is like 'Brennok'. In case you need it! Also - trigger warnings in this episode for knife crime and trauma, in case these subjects cause discomfort for you.Aodh is a skilled and experienced documentary producer, who has recently completed one of the tougher productions in his career - one centred around his own lived experience as a survivor of knife crime. A heavy and tough sounding viewing for sure, involving a traumatic period in the director's life (and one shared, unfortunately, with many) - but listening to Aodh talking about how he handled it, the ramifications and echoes, and the world he now navigates is an inspiring and positive thing indeed. This violent side of society doesn't pop out of nowhere, and it's interesting hearing about the tremors, potential causes and some of the accelerants that are in the mix with it all. There are also many activists and organisations out there offering assistance, which will be linked below. Be sure to watch Aodh's doc 'Scars' on BBC, and engage in the rest of what he's doing too. Some great work being done.DON'T FORGET PIP ON PATREON if you're of a supporting natureAODH LINKSAODH HOMEPAGEJASPER TAITT-WILLIAMS (campaigner)FARON PAUL (campaigner)ST GILES TRUSTCATCH 22SPEECH DEVELOPMENT WEBSTOREPIP TWITCH • (music stuff)PIP INSTAGRAMPIP TWITTERPIP PATREONPIP IMDBPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by director, screenwriter and producer PHILIP BARANTINI!This episode has been hinted at for a minute now, and anyone who's picking up crumbs on the acting breadcrumb trail will already be aware that Stephen Grahame is essentially the spiritual godfather of this whole podcast. Well DPP fam, here's Philip - a frequent Stephen collaborator and fellow Liverpudlian, who has spent his fair share of time on both sides of the camera. What's so cool about this chat is that it only goes to further prove how much humanity and basic decency there is in film making. We sometimes see and hear examples to the contrary, of course, but this just makes those in the industry who are caring and feel no need to make these vulgar displays of ego shine brightest. Enjoy this lovely chat with Philip and Pip, and watch Boiling Point in film and television series incarnations at your nearest convenience!DON'T FORGET PIP ON PATREON if you're of a supporting natureBOILING POINTACCUSEDIMDBINSTAGRAMSPEECH DEVELOPMENT WEBSTOREPIP TWITCH • (music stuff)PIP INSTAGRAMPIP TWITTERPIP PATREONPIP IMDBPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

It turns out Laura can take time off after all! I'm sure a lot of us can relate to how huge that revelation can be. On top of all this goodness, Laura expands on an attitude of luck and gratitude, the writers strikes in the US, being a natural born mimic from a really early age, Brit School and the acting ladder, podcasts and comedy beginnings.

Psychedelics w/ Andy Mitchell • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #533

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by neuropsychologist and author ANDY MITCHELL!A wildly interesting chat with Pip about not just the broad area of psychedelics, but the culture surrounding them and some of the modern spins on it all that we might be encountering on our travels. With all the wide world of psychedelics, it's really fascinating to hear about the side that sometimes doesn't get looked at, and to get some light shone on it with a slightly different perspective. A refreshing and neutral take too, without a huge amount of baggage hitched onto the wagon. Loads of angles, ideas and takes in fact, so definitely add this to your greater explorations!

Otto Baxter • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #532

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by actor and director OTTO BAXTER!...and joined by PETER BEARD and BRUCE FLETCHER of course. The trio here are responsible for the horror film 'The Puppet Asylum', and the documentary about Otto and the making of said film, 'Otto Baxter: Not A F*cking Horror Story'. Otto lives with Down Syndrome, which is of course not the main focus of this ace human but something that has had an affect on his world since birth. It's a great thing to hear about the making of the feature and the documentary, and a cool way of looking at such a creative outpouring. In this chat you hear the loud and proud Otto himself and from the directors involved who make a great pyramid of setup, explanation, discussion and general fun. At times you might notice that it's not the most calm, meditative and laidback ride BUT please don't let that draw you away - it's a really cool look at the world of Otto and the worlds Otto has created.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by actor, writer and comic ANDI OSHO!Another delightful time right here for you, as Pip and Andi catch up and get right into all things of interest quickly and with no hesitation. So much ground gets covered and it's all super inspiring, including bodies and minds and neuroplasticity, dealing with energies at school, earnestness and not feeling the cynicism, spending time being out of touch with pop music, logic puzzles of standup, bookwriting mechanics, winning the room and acting on the whole - as well as all that amazing connective tissue that comes with it...

Susan Wokoma • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #530

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by actor and writer and second time guest SUSAN WOKOMA!A true delight right here as Susan jumps back in the DPP game for another sureshot episode, and as you'll hear - and as you'd expect - in about 6 years or so SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED. But also, reassuringly there's a lot left on the side so this bodes well for a third appearance in the future...!Amongst the goodness you can expect from Susan in this Grade A ep, we get to hear about her strut, her younger days Helen Mirren obsession, the enforced scarcity mentality of women in the industry, industry dissillusionment, being comfortable in her body, Cheaters, life re-evaluations, the turning point of reductive and weird feedback, pride in comedic acting, how tough comedic acting is, working with the awesome Deborah Frances-White and the importance of passion. Jewels and gems to be gained especially if you're someone involved in the industry or considering it. Go back and peep the first ep if you missed it!

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by comic excellence and ace human being JOSH PUGH!One of those geniunely organic episodes which seems to form from the ground up and find a rhythm and pace all of its own. A lovely look into the mind of Josh, who specialises in comedy and standup but with a very social approach, which feels like it stems from his work in the social sector over the years. That comes up later which is fascinating and really great to hear about, but expect to hear everything from the other points of his life, including his recent Fringe work in progress run, to the origins and roots in comedy, vision impairment, social media, people who "crack the algorithm" and all the other things it takes to be a part of the comedy world. Great stuff, and very inspiring. Enjoy!ALSO - Pip indicates this in the intro but just in case, there's a little 5 minute bonus with Blindboy around halfway through the ep. All will make sense.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by dancehall champion and superstar reggae musician SHAGGY!Very broadly speaking, a lot of you will know Shaggy as Mr Boombastic, or the guy who did Oh Carolina and It Wasn't Me. But dig a little deeper and there are worlds of releases and shows and all sorts of stories from the past that are just too exciting and interesting to pass up on... And that's what makes this last minute convo with Pip and Shaggy so awesome! It's the stories behind the hits that are amazing, and the historical signifigance of them too. But in that world, of course there will be all kinds of run-ins, collabos, tales and amazing anecdotes, and Shaggy delivers on all counts.

While mainly focusing on the matter at hand which is the last two projects (Pipeline and Crowded, for brevity), you'll hear a ton about Sasha's process, working relationships and working boundaries, and all that comes with the work on screen. There's such a lot happening on said screen and behind the scenes so it's great to get an honest perspective on things, which is what Sasha truly delivers.* BUDDY NOTE!The sound on Sasha's side is a little tricky sometimes and at worst, a little hard to make out. I've done a fair job and retained what I could, but this was the only option we had - luckily our ears are tough little things and can get used to this sort of stuff, but apologies for a slightly less easy listen than you've become accustomed to.

In fact you'll hear a lot of this, various thoughts and perspectives on comedy and the behind the scenes of it all that you don't really hear a lot of. There's also some very interesting Edinburgh Fringe stuff too which offers a lot that you might not hear in the usual spots. And community, and football.

But failing that - with all due respect - this isn't really the home for you. As with Pip's sibling podcasts for the Films Of The Year, these picks of the LGBTQ+ variety are from Pip, and not speaking for every single person, nor are they selections that dismiss all other cinema! But they will definitely provide you with a wonderful dip into the rainbow of film that's out there and has been operating for maybe longer than you might think.

Well, if your question is "...but what are they doing now?" - you're about to find out, along with all the other stuff you may not know or have never been told. They're a lovely pair, and what they do comes from a lovely place with good vibes and a progressive mindset, which - when you think back to what they were doing - was always present and shining through.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by doctor and musician NISHANT JOSHI!You might fancy including 'whistleblower' in that description too but only if you use it in the appropriate manner okay? Dr Nishant has been a busy person in ever so many ways since the pandemic began around a quarter of a decade ago (to give it that sense of close history), being a doctor on the frontline during one of the biggest health emergencies of our lifetimes. Included in that busy-ness though is how he drew attention to a PPE issue in the healthcare system, which in turn brough on its own worries, gaslighting, doublespeak, intimidation and just plain strangeness - it was a rough time but a period which ultimately led to some hugely important changes along the way. You'll hear all about it, but also Nishant touches on his punk music interests and band work, alongside being a parent too. So much going on - join Pip and Dr Nishant for a thorough recounting!

Within appropriate broadcast law, obvs. Gaming happens to be Balmer's chosen discipline (with some improv and role play in there too), and as one of Pip's favourite streamers there must be a reason for him to guest on DPP right? Correct. Balmer is not only a truly unique gamer with a wild and memorable presence, he is also a parent of an autistic son. He and Pip catch up on everything involved with that part of the story, which is fascinating and inspiring, shedding light on the 'system' as we know it, and how it works with and against this area of neurodivergence. While the episode does deal with parenting and Twitch, those who are not parents nor Twitch afficionados may be confident in knowing it's a lovely episode with warmth and awesomeness throughout. Maybe you don't know the name (yet) - but trust that it's a lovely ep.DON'T FORGET PIP ON PATREON if you're of a supporting natureBALMER ON TWITCHTWITTERMORE LINKS!YOUTUBESCROOBIUS PIP on TWITCHSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONSCROOBIUS PIP on IMDBPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

Florence & Reed (Come Curious) • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #513

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by Florence & Reed from the almighty COME CURIOUS podcast!Of course, the podcast is one aspect of both of their wide and varied skillset, but it's a hugely important and awesome element - even in terms of reframing 'sex positive' as 'sex honest'. Florence and Reed have been making power moves in the world of sex work, including being active within it, fighting for rights and equality, and ensuring that things don't get misrepresented and blurry along the way. As you'll hear, the work they do is not easy by any means. It is a fascinating chat tho, as we hear about their road to podcasting, how to navigate relationships as podcasters and sex workers, the difference between attraction and appreciation (and how they may blend), having a tangible item out in the world (a book) vs making invisible art (podcasts), and a huge amount of other goodness along the way. Nothing too graphic here but perhaps if you're playing in the presence of younger folk, it could be worth being around for occasional explanations! ENJOY - it's a lovely one.DON'T FORGET PIP ON PATREON if you're of a supporting natureCOME CURIOUS YoutubeCOME CURIOUS InstagramPODCASTFLORENCE's BOOK • This Book Will Make You Feel SomethingSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITCHSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONSCROOBIUS PIP on IMDBPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

James Acaster • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #512

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by show favourite, renowned comic and now grand producer JAMES ACASTER!Some might consider this a kind of trojan horse episode, in that it's not wall to wall "Let's talk about comedy and Taskmaster" - no, this time, Pip catches up with James about his new role as producer and orchestrator behind the new sprawling music project 'Temps'! The project itself is a truly adventurous step to bring together a ton of different worlds, but revolving around a main concept of everyone being a unique and necessary presence on the album. Highly regarded rappers and musicians coming together in ways that even us fans would be refreshingly surprised by. It features so prominently in this episode because don't forget - Pip comes from this world, but has also been a fan and friend of James' for many years now, so if you're feeling wary of hearing the comic you like talking about an album of music, leave that wariness at the door and put your faith in the podcast. It's excellent stuff, and there's some acting and TV bits at the end too of cours!

Anna Bogutskaya • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #511

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by the awesome writer, podcaster, curator and film critic ANNA BOGUTSKAYA!Hopefully you will know Anna and her prolific works at this point but in the event that you've been caught napping, this is a perfect introduction to the encyclopedic film lover herself... This is the perfect episode for all cinephiles, covering so many elements of the on-screen universe and much of the psychology behind it which will absolutely prove for a truly enjoyable listen. From being an interviewer vs interviewed, to the importance of listening and reacting, how the viewing position changes depending on what you're viewing for, switching up a shy nature, extolling the virtues of the horror genre, how the rules are different according to gender norms, and of course her incredible new book 'Unlikeable Female Characters'. It goes without saying that Anna is 100% likeable so please, listen and enjoy.DON'T FORGET PIP ON PATREON if you're of a supporting natureBOOK PRE-ORDER!ONLINETWITTERINSTAGRAMPODCASTSALL ANNA LINKSSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITCHSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONSCROOBIUS PIP on IMDBPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

Fantasy Film Casting (w/Chris & Stu) • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #510

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by Drunkast and Hardcore Listing mates CHRIS & STU!The theme of this week is simple but has vast potential for pure world building... Pip invited Chris and Stu along to do some good old fashioned stuntcasting - where you basically re-cast films and TV shows with a cast of your own assemblage. The results? Chaotic and amazing. But ALWAYS grounds for debate and good old fashioned chat. A whole episode's worth, at that! So give yourself over to the casting agents of the Drunkast squadron (this isn't a Drunkast but, ya know) and let them re-envision, in front your eyes, Thundercats, The Breakfast Club and The A-Team. Good fun for all.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by the warm, ace and uplifting actor JOHNNY HARRIS!Johnny's been incredibly busy over the last few decades, as a quick glimpse at his storied IMDB page will display. So of course you can expect to hear a ton of good old fashioned acting chat right here. But on top of that, you'll also be treated to a ton of good old fashioned friendly and uplifting back and forth too. Johnny's interests and skills go beyond acting, so you'll hear about his boxing origins which fed into the film 'Jawbone', his music love which led him to meeting and working with his heroes (Whoever said "Don't meet your heroes" maaay have just had a terrible experience with theirs? Just a thought...), and just a proper full episode of awesomeness.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by the excellent and hilarious comic JOHN KEARNS!You might know John from his appearances on Taskmaster. You might know John from his memorable appearance on stage as a comedian (rocking the false teeth and wig). But here's a perfect chance to get to know John as the human behind it all, the master at the controls. It's a brilliant chat which covers all the ground you would hope for, but also offers some fascinating insight into what goes on behind the "mask" - and what is a "mask" anyway? Some really interesting ground for discussion but also all the tangents, fun and stray observations you would want too, including crowd and audience attitude, and cadence. Lotsa cadence.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by veteran true crime comedy podcast trio DRUNK WOMEN SOLVING CRIME!...of course the three women in question who form the trio have names - Taylor, Hannah and Catie - and all three are here to chat all things podcasts, origin stories and more! A lot more, by the way. It's a joy to hear the team catch up and talk about all the things that maybe even people who listen to DWSC aren't up to speed on, and so it's a great ep for people who are full on fans as well as those uninitiated. But those who fall into the latter category will be rapidly converted, so prepare to add another podcast to your agenda. True crime fans - rejoice!

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by Enter Shikari's ROU REYNOLDS!...and if you remember all the way back to episode 27 where Rou made his debut on Distraction Pieces, you will know that his name is pronounced "Rou like cow, not Rou like moo". But that aside - we welcome back Rou, in this excellent episode which delves into so much more than music. Situating ourselves immediately in the surroundings of Pip's old uni town of Wolverhampton, we hear about everything including politics and how to transmit that as a band, being a frontperson and the emotional toll, gender hangups and new arguments within, the Overton Window (see links below if unfamiliar), the creative drought of the pandemic, and of course MUSIC! Burying the lead there! So enjoy this welcome return and share freely - as with all episodes - you as a listener form a very important part of the Distraction Pieces chain.

Brandon Cronenberg • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #505

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by director BRANDON CRONENBERG!If half of that name rings bells to those of you not versed too hard in the cinema world, you are indeed correct - Brandon's father is David, who you will surely be familiar with in some way! Brandon's been carving a unique niche in the horror scene with some truly psychedelic adventures in the genre, and you'll be happy to know that he goes into a lot of the technique in this chat with Pip. Honestly, you couldn't have guessed some of this stuff - and better yet, it's all in-camera (basically meaning, not computer FX). So prepare for some fantastic process talk, greater ideas within the films, and some nice action for those who saw and loved Possessor, Infinity Pool and the rest in the catalogue. As always with these chats which may seem specifically bound to a certain discipline - if you are creative in any way, or enjoy creativity - you will absolutely get a lot from this. So fear not, horror fan or otherwise - you'll love it.IMDBINSTAGRAMMUBI PAGEPOSSESSORINFINITY POOLSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITCHSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONSCROOBIUS PIP on IMDBBLAIR TWITCH PROJECTPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

ALI!An absolute must listen episode, firstly for those interested and invested in the acting and cinema/television kingdom, but also for those who want to hear a straight up brilliant episode full of honesty, truth and heart. Of course you get the shop talk - process, creativity, the whole science of it all (and the Marvel multiverse of course)- which is amazing in itself, but you also get some wondefully vulnerable and soulful thoughts and experiences on mental health, diversity, and how this ties everything together in a much more macro sense. It actually plays out like a perfect screenplay in many ways, which is no surprise. I mean. It's Bisha K. Ali!

BUT - consider that something of a sidebar to this conversation as here, we get to hear everything about Natalia in a solo capacity. From boat life, to mind opening Patagonia journeys, to dream jobs and being part of film crews almost like a family, her band and how the tale began and unfolds, accordions, Harry Potter, John Wick, and the whole acting science in general. Amazing stuff and a brilliant look at what Natalia's been up to and is about to do - listen in!IMDBINSTAGRAMTWITTERMOLOTOV JUKEBOXFEATURESCROOBIUS PIP on TWITCHSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONSCROOBIUS PIP on IMDBBLAIR TWITCH PROJECTPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

Not only that, you can double up on said treats by adding the wonderful Anisia Uzeyman into the mix, as the two drop science in an orderly fashion! A huge amount of perspective, viewpoint and opinion which you will definitely enjoy being in on, but also you'll hear about their film Neptune Frost. If you haven't seen or heard about the film, for goodness sake look at the trailer for some context - it's incredible, and will give a perfect foundation for ths chat with the makers. Or better yet - watch the film. Fans of Saul will heavily appreciate this, and if you're familiar with the work of Anisia you'll love it. And all rounded up with some glorious hip hop anecdotery in case you forgot who you were dealing with here.

Even saying 'mailbag' is such a nostalgia trigger for most of us. Didn't that kind of thing die out not long after the 90's arrived? What was it replaced by? Maybe that should have been my question for this episode. Anyway - expect a nice gathering of input from friends and fans and long/medium/short term listeners, with light shed on various topics from music to film to Twitch to everything besides. Just don't ask when we can expect more music. Deal? Deal.

Darren McGarvey aka Loki • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #499

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by Glasgow-based rapper, author and activist DARREN McGARVEY aka LOKI!A thoroughly engaging and informative chat to light a fire under you right here, as Pip connects with Darren and jumps in the deep end from the very start! That's how we like it. It's actually perfect because Darren has a lot to say, all of which is guided towards society and shining a light on some of the sides of it that often get left in the shadows, ignored, or basically hidden from public view. He has skin in the game too, having lived in a part of Glasgow which hasn't always been what you might consider the safest part of town, and with alcoholism in the family, so it comes as no surprise that there's a feeling of catharthis in his quest to enlighten and create positivity in his work. Speaking of work, you can catch Darren on road not long after this podcast releases, and also make sure you peep his rap music which is proper too. Very sick stuff. A definite companion episode to previous guests such as Akala, Rutger Bregman and Emma Dabiri to name a few.THE SOCIAL DISTANCE BETWEEN USONLINETWITTERINSTAGRAMLIVEYOUTUBESCROOBIUS PIP on TWITCHSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONBLAIR TWITCH PROJECTDEBRISNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

William Regal • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #496

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by English professional wrestler WILLIAM REGAL!A true wrestling fans dream right here, but as always with these slightly more specific episodes, this is definitely not one strictly for the wrestlers... William Regal is a lovely guest and a treat to have on the podcast, and you can clearly hear the joy in Pip's voice when the two get to speaking. Those who are familiar will know about his character and his long road within the wrestling ring and outside it, and here you get a front row chance to hear about everything - the character choices and how he formulated the person you see up there, his original desires to be a wrestler, comedian or clown, Blackpool roots, analogies to the 'bad guy' characters in comedy, how to work with crowds, being a pro, doing the work, and retaining a humble but proud and highly skilled presence in and out of that ring. It will definitely appeal to anyone in the creative arts, as there are elements of which we all share and find common ground on. Some valuable meditations on time and being a grown adult too, which we can all benefit from. Lovely stuff for both wrestling addicts and those who are a clean slate!WWETWITTERWRESTLING WIKIMORE WILLIAMSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITCHSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONBLAIR TWITCH PROJECTDEBRISNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

Lenny Rush • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #495

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by actor LENNY RUSH!This isn't the first time Pip's had a younger guest on the podcast, going back to the days of the 'Where's Your Head At' series where he chatted to his goddaughter, but this time he joined by young Lenny who is 12 years old at the time of recording. Lenny is an incredible actor who's been on a lot of very highly regarded BBC shows (and more obviously!), and this is a wonderful conversation where you really get to know Lenny well and catch a glimpse of his wise and great sense of humour. In case you missed something Pip mentions earlier on too, Lenny has Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia congenita, a condition which affects growth. This is just to give the correct words to the condition and make sure it's spelled properly here.They cover a lot of ground here in not a lot of time, but just make sure you have space on your favourite actor lists after hearing and seeing him.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by national acting treasure RUTH MADELEY!Pip caught up with Ruth to go in on the actorial sciences in some awesome detail, with Ruth going over some of her amazing roles in an illustrious career and all the 'stuff' that comes with it. Born with spina bifada, she has also worked a ton with the Whizz Kidz charity, so she is very much out there putting in work in the realms of disability representation. It's a really interesting chat which shines some well needed light on areas of the acting scene that could benefit from it, but actually all areas of society too.

Films Of The Year 2022 • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #493

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Prepare your snacks accordingly (preferably quiet ones) as Pip runs you through his FILMS OF THE YEAR 2022!Happy and prosperous new years to you all! All of us here at Distraction Pieces wish you a wonderful year ahead in all of your endeavours. Here's hoping for a positive one in 2023. As tradition dictates, here is Pip to deliver his timely rundown of all of the films he saw in 2022, broken down into a criteria of which he will explain, and with clear parameters and boundaries so all is fair and equal. One thing to point out, as is always necessary with the film lists, is that this list is not your list. When Pip mentions a film he loved, the mention of that film does not magically erase the films you loved, nor shuffle the order around of your own lists (mental or physical). So YES your choices may be different but NO your opinions are still valid. But this is not grounds for debate. This is a perfect chance to start 2023 with a positive perspective - let's celebrate the things that are great and not spend a ton of time breaking down why we didn't like the other stuff. I dunno, let's see. Could be the start of a glorious trend... With that in mind - let Pip take you on a walk through the woods while he talks films at ya. ENJOY AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!!!SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITCHSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONBLAIR TWITCH PROJECTDEBRISNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip forms a power throuple with fellow podcasters JOHN & JOEL for the TV SHOWS OF THE YEAR!A delightful end of year TV roundup from three people who truly know and care about their televisual intake. These are names you can trust, folks. You might know John and Joel from their own film podcast called Dream Factory (the world's greatest user-generated movie creation podcast), which Pip is a true fan of and contributor to, but if not, here is your chance to get to know them and become fast friends! This podcast goes appropriately deep into the television shows of the year in a hugely positive way, but of course you'll hear about some of the trials and tribulations of being such big devourers of content - the endless options of platforms, the accessibility of them all, and everything else... But really it's a perfect way to get up to speed on the things you might have missed, and also hear people chat about the shows that we all loved throughout the year.

Although you'll surely have a great time if you ARE one. John's been through a whole lot in his journey to perfection, and as you'll hear not every pro fighter is immune to human issues. He had a major battle with some internal maladies which you'll hear about in a very tactful way, but managed to navigate through with grace and made a major comeback. But as you'll also hear, there's some huge stories to be told and as you'll expect, Pip's on his game with this one.

Anyway - through a series of chess moves on the board of the industry he currently finds himself in an incredible position working on some true TV greats like Succession and Game Of Thrones to name but two - but also his own film The Menu, which you'll find in cinemas currently (at time of typing). A wide ranging and honest chat but with a focus on the topic at hand, which gives so much room for hearing the tale of Mark and his years in the game.

A really great chat with Adam and Pip as they get deep into the vault of doctoring and the world of medicine. But with a definite truth-telling angle - not to dish the dirt by any means, but really to help the public understand more the position that those working in healthcare are in. It can often be misrepresented very efficiently, so it's heartening to hear the side of it that we're not always exposed to. Adam delivers his recollections with a delightful world weariness that is so endearing and interesting, and it's awesome to hear about what he's been up to in the writing world as well as all the rest. I mean, the term "multi hyphenate" is thrown around SO recklessly these days...

For Jim Bob is an eloquent and thoughtful musician with very good insights and understandings on the music scene with experience in the game. Carter blew up on the UK pop scene back in the late 80's / early 90's, and you may remember Jim Bob rocking that wildly influentional haircut if nothing else, but it's fascinating to hear about his time in the scene back then and to draw parallels with Pip about the game now, and what's happened in between. Including run ins with The Rolling Stones and Philip Scofield. A ton to enjoy, and maybe now's a great time to go back through the back catalogue with fresh ears...

Kaitlyn Dever • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #475

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by acting superstar KAITLYN DEVER!If you are unaware of Kaitlyn in your adventures through the wide world of broadcast media, prepare to make fast friends with a true great, and an absolute gem of a person at that. Kaitlyn's been putting down serious moves since childhood, including a Shakespeare stint at RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts for those pondering), and her filmography is stellar - ranging from Justified, to Dopesick, to Unbelievable, and more recently Ticket To Paradise (starring alongside Julia Roberts and George Clooney, where the cinema screen actually cracks midway through from so much gorgeous). This is a lovely chat, properly engaging and it's such a treat to hear Kaitlyn's story. OH and as Pip hints at in the intro, prepare for a Kaitlyn fact that will blow yer mind. She casually peppers it in there but thankfully Pip mashes on the brakes and reverses and double takes seamlessly. Enjoy!

This a very welcome catch up with Frankie, as he and Pip check in on everything since September 2016 - so not much to talk about then really...? So let's just say that the tip of the iceberg is approached at the very least, with a lot of Frankie goodness to indulge in including his new Fringe show, not relying on fallbacks, the scourge of essentialism, the path of optimism, Left Wing melancholia, dislike for the emphatic, how we read, Becket plays, meeting greater themes in play through real life mortality experiences (wow that's a book title right there), representation and so much more.

If you're a long term listener, you'll understand the reverence to which Pip applies to the director of Irreversible, Enter The Void, and new film Vortex among others, and so it must have been a daunting but incredible chance to form the experience into a podcast - as you will hear, it not only covers Noe's recent brush with death and subsequent recovery, but also his process, the importance of casting and crew, life, love, substances, and film in general. It's almost an episode of Films To Be Buried With, to be honest.

Accountability In Activism • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #450

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!A very special bonus episode as Pip talks with LISA SIMPSON, whose son was killed by police in 2016.Before going in, know that this episode is obviously a heavy one with many nuanced elements. Lisa has been actively vocal about her feelings and experiences with the Black Lives Matter movement since her son Richard Risher was murdered by the Los Angeles Police Department on July 25th 2016. Not only has she had to face burying her son, and dealing with the aftermath of the law being responsible for his death, she's also had to deal with negative run ins with the Black Lives Matter movement who have made false promises to her for a while now, among other grievances.It's her experience to share, and her story to tell, and is a layered problem which you'll see as you hear from Lisa. This is in the interest of balance, as Patrisse Cullors of BLM guested on episode 195 of Distraction Pieces (linked below), so it's only fair Lisa has her right to reply.LISA LINKS (and related)EPISODE 195 with PATRISSE CULLORSLISA on BNC TVLAPD REPORTLA TIMES COLUMNSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITCHSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONDEBRISNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by journalist, author and presenter HAYLEY CAMPBELL!You’re probably familiar with the age old dilemma of ‘Cake or death?’ - well, you’re about to hear a podcast which contains firstly takeaway, and then death. So it’s not worlds away, let’s say. This is a well overdue meeting of Pip and Hayley who get along like old pals from the get go, beginning with - as stated - takeaway habits and secret condiment hacks that will level up your sauce game (you can thank Hayley), and branches off into pandemic nostalgia, fitness, cinemas, parents, Neil Gaiman, Alan Moore, comic books, but more importantly - death. Hayley’s new book ‘All The Living And The Dead’ addressed the dead. Not the dying or the grieving. The dead. You wouldn’t think it was an overlooked sector but death is a strange one. A fascinating chat which deals with so much but with a good heart and no gloominess, but worth mentioning that those who struggle with the subject might be well warned to tread lightly. Just saying.

Cecilia and Pip go back as far as the days of Bestival, and it’s lovely to hear about the journey she’s taken and the many moments of day and night along the way. We hear about the actual factual nuts and bolts of the process of writing (which includes actual human emotions and real life moments), share some moments of her family all along the way (to those of a more sensitive nature, you might want to tread carefully by the way - it’s a touch heavy), hear about her early days and entry points into spoken word and poetry which involves said Polarbear / Steve Camden, as well as the also great Jack Rooke, channeling grief, the CALM organisation, being in creative bubbles, and dipping in and out of characters in her novel ‘Little Boxes’.

Everything including growing up in Wales, acting origin stories, sounding toooo Welsh, directing and doing so during a pandemic, being on both sides of the camera, the great Mark Rylance, the also great Shaheen Baig (rapidly becoming the DPP godmother), the scourge of over-rehearsing, Richard Ayoade, and golf!

But it’s pretty tough to dispute. Long term (and casual) Pip listeners will already know the line ‘Thou shalt not question Stephen Fry’ - well, Pip breaks the holy rap commandment and does just that, and it’s a joy to behold. Naturally there’s only so many tips of icebergs one can introduce in an hour, but rest assured that you get the full Pip and Fry experience including pandemic times, social media, Greeks and Romans and history as a whole, tattoos, religion, politics - it’s like if you had a dinner party with him but condensed into a lunch break.

Beth is incredibly busy, as you will surely deduce by the end of this, but busy in a reassuringly comfortable way. With so many projects on the go and in the archives, it's fascinating to hear how it all comes together, as well as the origin story of it all. A good chunk of that takes place in Wales, where we currently find her, and leads on from there including all the writing, concepts, projects, series, gigs, everything else included.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by actress, TV star and podcaster LUCY PINDER!A delightful chat bringing in loads of feelgood action, with a dash of triumph over adversity in there for good measure. From her days back in Winchester, we hear about her path to publicity and being involved in the world of early 00's lad culture and glamour modeling from a chance day off at the beach, which led to a huge amount of ups and downs as the path began to stabilise. What this did lead to though is a ton of good things which we hear about, as well as thoughts on pandemic walks and rituals, reclaiming Sundays and releasing podcasts on them, the difference between fun and selfishness these days to back then, rebranding being single and so much more besides.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by the artist formerly known as Prolyphic, it's Strange Famous's MOPES!The last time Pip saw Mopes was in his former guise in 2013, and hooo boy has a lot happened in the interim... From name changes to all kinds of life stuff, it's a tale as old as time - take a chunk of someone's life and explore and you'll find (hopefully) huge evolutions and transitions. It's a pleasure to hear them catch up and reminisce over the old days of what was occasionally refered to as 'weird / leftfield / alternative' hip hop. What a funny time for genre naming that was. Personally I blame cLOUDDEAD. Anyway... For those into that era and sound, and those into hip hop, or just those who enjoy the story of someone with a ton of awesome experiences, buckets of honesty, and a large serving of realness - this will be of absolute importance. Check his new work HERE!You can also check his old work which I (Buddy Peace) produced, on the album 'Working Man'. I was on that tour they talk about in 2013 too!

Tom has been making amazing videos with some concepts that make you instantly wonder how it hasn't been done already (in so much as it's such a pure, organic idea), and Pip's been down with him for a while. So you'll get to hear all about the straight line challenge, GeoGuessr (involving figuring out where you are after being dropped on Google Maps, using only context clues), how it all kicked in and got started, the idea of a 'real job', hard work out in the field (literally), being chased by angry farmers and a huge amount more. All will be made clearer by Pip and Tom from the intro onwards, so fear not - if this all sounds puzzling, give it a shot because this could very well be your next thing...Enjoy!GEOWIZARD LINKSYOUTUBE (all channels and playlists)PATREONTWITCHSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONDEBRISNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!A bonus treat this Friday as Pip is joined by writer of Channel 4’s new prison drama ‘Screw’, ROB WILLIAMS!Rob of course has worked on a great amount of productions and works, but the focus this episode is the series Screw, and how it all formulated including the development and so on. The synopsis for Screw reads: “This is prison as never seen before – the uncensored, shocking and often darkly funny reality of life as a prison officer in an all-male prison in 21st century Britain” - and if that triggers your interests then this will be a perfect episode as Pip and writer Rob get deep into the mechanics and background of it all. A wide ranging chat which covers dystopian overload, teaching in prison, the lack of prison officer based shows, representation, being defined by the worst moment of your life, long running shows and the UK television framework, writing as part of a well oiled machine, writing to hooks and holding attention, Eastenders, Casualty, and loads more which will appeal to basically anyone with an interest in broadcast media.

Emma Dabiri • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #430

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by inspirational author and activist EMMA DABIRI!Recorded at a time of political weirdness (a backdrop as old as time), illicit government parties feel pretty low down the list compared with the content of what Emma gets into with this episode. Just listen to her break down the origins of slavery in the early part, where she traces race as a construct to the roots, and charts its spread from there on. Emma’s expert delivery does not end there, for that is merely the tip of the iceberg of what is a very useful, inspiring and absolutely information-packed episode, where she also goes into her book and the inspirations behind the title, her upbringing in Ireland and Atlanta with Nigerian and Irish parents, being subliminally introduced into black politics from a very early age, and again, tracing certain elements of slavery and racism to the origins in order to better understand the impact and resonance. I mean, just listen, and read the book. And share this episode too - it’s a great one.EMMA LINKSWHAT WHITE PEOPLE CAN DO NEXTTWITTERINSTAGRAMGOOD READSSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONDEBRISNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Evanna Lynch • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #429

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by actor, author and activist EVANNA LYNCH!You may know Evanna from her role as Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter films, which is a fine place to begin. But of course Evanna is a whole universe more than an acting role, a glimpse of which you shall have here on this podcast. She catches up with Pip about essentially life after Harry Potter, which contains a huge amount of ups, but as we all know, also contains a fair share of downs. Evanna spent a period of her life dealing with an eating disorder and the many issues which that brings with it, and only through a huge amount of work has she now been able to find ways of living with it and thinking of it in a multitude of different ways.

Films Of The Year: 2021 • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #427

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!The very merriest, happiest and healthiest of new years to you all and all the very best for what's to come in 2022. Let's make it one for the books... Not that any year in previous history has not been one for the books - but still, let's do what we can. All this talk of books though is not helping the cause of todays episode - for this is the tradition as old as time itself, where your dutiful cinephile host Scroobius Pip takes you on a walk in the woods to break down his films of the year list for the past 12 months!As always, and I know you know this by now, but it bears repeating - this is PIPS LIST! If any films are mentioned that did not make your own personal list, or if your list contains films that aren't on Pips list, all is well. No need to grumble. This is a celebration of film which you are welcome to - not a film dis-fest or argument over what is or isn't worthy. All positive energy, all good and healthy input. Let's kick off the year on a plus and not get caught up in all that. Right? Amazing. And with that - let's get stuck in. Folks, enjoy the annual films of the year list from Pip!SCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONDEBRISNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Kunt & The Gang • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #425

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by Essex comedy songsmith KUNT & THE GANG!If you know him, you KNOW him. If not? You’ll be in for some fun surprises, as Kunt is a bit of a legend on the comic song scene. If you fall into the “not” category, I’m confident you’ll be hitting the Youtube links and investigating further. Armed with a Casio keyboard or a full band, depending on the circumstances, he’s responsible for a bunch of classics but more recently for the almost Xmas single ‘Boris Johnson Is A F*cking C*nt’. What’s on the books for 2021? ‘Boris Johnson Is Still A F*cking C*nt’. Can’t argue with that now can we. Hear the story from day one, including early origins with podpal Stu Whiffen, haters being good for business, being in a band with 13 other members, and his recent mad times with said singles blowing up. Mad stuff, you’ll enjoy.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by full on stage and screen multi-talent MARK GATISS!“Full on multi talent” merely scratches the iceberg, as Mark is deeply immersed in almost every angle of the television and film game. An actor, screenwriter, producer, director and more, you’ll more than like be seeing a lot of him this Xmas as The Amazing Mr Blunden meets our screens. You’ll surely also see more of him in everything else he’s been involved with too, as stated above - he’s heavily involved! Here he and Pip cover a ton, including the state of the country, acting and fashions, source material for older works, clicking ‘send’, the performance of the director, and adjusting scripts on the fly. Or rather, on the curb.

And what a treat it is, as he and Pip connect on tales and fun from the acting world, in and behind the scenes. Will has a ton of hours in the game, and it’s a valuable listen from beginning to end. From being a new dad for the second time, to his Japanese roots, working in Japan and London back to back (and surprising language barriers), Footlights, alternative truths, and his work including Landscapers, Giri / Haji, Flowers, Black Pond, The Electrical Life Of Louis Wain, and all the gold in the middle that you could imagine.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by one of the UK’s shining acting stars KIELL SMITH-BYNOE!…but Kiell is not only an actor, as you shall find out. He’s been putting in power moves all across the board for a minute, and maybe in a parallel universe we’d see him sharing stages with old mates Tinchy, Wiley and Skepta, but we’re lucky enough to witness his rise on the screen. The grime model taught him well of course, as he became aware of what was possible in the wider world, and we get to hear how he plotted his course - originating in Newham - from Man Like Mobeen to Ghosts to Stath Lets Flats and much much more. And we also hear about a truly emotional on set catering experience.

What, are you kidding me right now? Just playing. For the uninitiated, We.Are.Lizards is the legendary club night founded, developed and evolved by Pip and the whole entourage right here.

But as with most regular club nights, to many it became a high point of the month, a family, dare I say a home, but also a meeting point and proper hot spot for so many people as well. It was always well attended, staffed, and co-ordinated, and the behind the scenes life is as fascinating and awesome as the on the scene one.

Well, either way, that’s awesome because now’s your chance to get even better acquainted with him as he joins Pip for a chat for us all to enjoy! It’s a goody of course, as Irvine goes into a lot of bits and pieces including the majesty of Edinburgh, his Leith upbringings, fame and dipping in and out of it, storytelling and how it got into his system from an early age, going from music to writing, audiences being more capable of understanding accents and dialect than some media think, social media and more - of course, including Trainspotting and his new series Crime.IRVINE LINKSIMDBTWITTERONLINECRIMESCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONDEBRISNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

A conversation full of value-packed and rich tangents, from the barber-shop setlist, creative beginnings, Fringe origins (not barber related, that one), intense injuries that would ironically stop one from standing up, Youtubers and vloggers, nostalgia, class, universal basic income, Footlights and Cambridge Uni, old teachers, Ladhood, Pls Like and everything else that falls within these Venn diagrams.

Of course it’s not all about that, but it’s very cool to get an insight into what went into Katy’s book ‘Delicacy - A Memoir About Cake & Death’. Among other ace tangents, Katy and Pip cover awkward coughing, finding beauty in the details, giving self-permission to focus on the personal details, death and grief, cathartis and therapy through writing, time management and fitting much into not much, magical Cardiff beginnings and acting alongside Steve Coogan in full Alan Partridge mode, and on Stath Lets Flats!

Daniel’s been busy for years, and chances are you will be familiar with him from more than Line Of Duty, but if not - as ever, the Distraction Pieces Podcast will steer you right on your path to familiarity, as Daniel breaks it down about film sets during covid times, unions and the crucial world behind the camera, DPP spiritual father Stephen Graham (aka - in this case - Cilla Black), process and nuances in acting, his filmography and television spots including Temple, Red Riding, Shifty, Line Of Duty of course and all that’s ahead.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by director and screenwriter EDGAR WRIGHT!For sure one of the more long awaited ones right here, as Pip finally checks in with Edgar in person. Edgar’s on top form as he goes into depth on his latest movie, and depth that will please all film enthusiasts at that. No spoilers given so don’t worry if you haven’t seen it yet, but it all sounds incredible. You’ll hear about production being shut down on arrival of the pandemic, the distopian Soho landscape which played into his film set in Soho (which boasts on location filming other than the parts referenced by Edgar here), authenticity, on camera effects and capturing magic, dealing with the present as well as going back in time, danger of romanticising the past, not turning his back on the UK, the cast and of course the Sparks documentary which is introducing and re-introducing a whole new and existing audience to the band.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by all star comedian, host, writer and more JIMMY CARR!You for sure know Jimmy, for Jimmy is ubiquitous and with good reason - he’s a very funny comedian and always comes through on a panel show. He has a new book out too called Before & Laughter, which is very much a ‘get to know’ kind of book so well worth peeping. He and Pip cover a ton of ground on here too, from the difference pace of feedback loops in comedy and book writing, the trojan horse of standup in panel shows, joke analytics, the legacy of the incredible Sean Lock (RIP), life choices, comedy workouts, comparison as the thief of joy, his well publicised money issues, being a father and all kinds of life in between. Honest, interesting and very funny - enjoy.JIMMY LINKSONLINETWITTERBEFORE AND LAUGHTER BOOKIMDBSTANDUP SHOWSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONDEBRISNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by long term friend and founder of mental health consultancy Born Human, ANDY CHAMBERS!A lovely bonus edition of the podcast here as Pip and Andy kick off plotting the lineage of their friendship before our ears, which is a lovely thing to behold and even something we can do with our own friends perhaps.

What’s cool about this episode is that we hear what the organisation’s ‘personality’ is through hearing from Andy, which is the perfect way to do it. Everything from rituals, loss and grief, family, birth, the minds of kids, safe spaces, post natal depression in mothers and fathers, the benefit of the walk and talk, preventative care and the Born Human podcast. A balm for your mind, which will soothe and replenish. No it’s not about skincare.

They catch up on that of course, but all the way through this is peppered with all sorts of wisdom and experience which touches on so many facets of acting and life in general (while being grounded in Sam’s current project The North Water) - the importance of breaks and holidays, funny-bad reviews, attitude on set, getting notes on your character, working with director Andrew Haigh, class structures in historical drama, cut-off locations, staying in your lane as a character, Steve McQueen and the Small Axe series, and too much more to synopsise here.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by long awaited / much requested rapper and activist LOWKEY!While rapper and activist might not cover it completely, Lowkey is someone who you need on your radar as this podcast will prove. It feels like Pip has been in training for this one but it is not a tricky listen - more like one that will continue to reward you on repeat listens. From the start I would suggest keeping a pad and pen by you just in case you want to make some notes, but otherwise it’s a perfect chance to let some pure facts and figures wash over you. From remittances, immigration, tax havens, etymology and what could be taught in schools, patriotism, circular logic, kung fu, houses of cards, the Grenfell tragedy, Operation Legacy and too much more to list.

What this all leads to is an incredibly useful toolbox for actors with gems from all sides of the camera including how to dismount emotionally after heavier scenes, the strangeness of being praised for reaching emotional places, on set therapy and the importance of decompression through the process (and how the days of distressing your cast as director are hopefully behind us), manipulation, Deceit, Raised By Wolves, Calm With Horses, Ridley Scott, Prano Bailey Bond, defending your character, process and craft, collaboration and just so much more.

DPP Rewind • Michael Cashman • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip

Originally broadcast on February 12th 2020, this episode feels like a dream or a fantasy world away now - but it’s a brilliant one which deserves the DPP Rewind treatment at a poignant time. Michael Cashman was a delight and his story is thrilling, which absolutely warrants its re-run - please listen if you haven’t yet, and if you did at the time, why not revisit…Just to note the films Pip lists up top on the intro, here they are:Victim • 120bpm • Tangerine • Ammonite • A Special Day • Beach Rats • God’s Own Country • Portrait Of A Lady On FireBelow is the original writeup from Feb 2020…• • • • • • • • • •Welcome, welcome, welcome to EPISODE 311 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! This week Pip is joined by activist, author and actor (all the A’s), Michael Cashman! Sorry - let me correct that - Baron Cashman CBE!An amazing meeting this week with Pip and Michael, a man whose experience and knowledge will come shining through immediately upon listening. As a founder of Stonewall (with Ian McKellen), ex-member of European Parliament, activist and former actor (those of us who grew up on Eastenders will remember him as Colin), his life has been a genuine document of ups and downs, highs and lows, but all navigated with love, conviction and positivity. His story is moving, uplifting and at times incredibly unfair, but as you will hear - from all of this, pure goodness has been his reward. Over 30 years of his journey has been underpinned by long term partner Paul, who is unfortunately no longer with us but as you’ll hear, is spoken of by Michael with such love and compassion and it’s pretty much impossible to not be stirred by - well, the whole conversation, let’s be frank. The rest is yours to discover - listen, learn, and become better acquainted with a strong force for good in the world. Welcome, Michael!His book 'One Of Them' is available now on Bloomsbury!EPISODE LINKS:• MICHAEL on TWITTER• STONEWALL• COLIN'S FIRST APPEARANCE in EASTENDERS• MICHAEL on THE INTERNETLINKS FOR SCROOBIUS PIP & SPEECH DEVELOPMENT:• SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTER• SCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAM• SCROOBIUS PIP on PATREON• POD BIBLE• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS • DISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOK• DISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAM• Hosted on Acast.

Juliet Stevenson • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #390

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Joining the podcast this week is the fabulous acting favourite and true treasure JULIET STEVENSON!Having met on set on Sara Pascoe’s ‘Out Of Her Mind’, Juliet and Pip hit it off and set up a future plan for a podcast meeting - and here we have the glorious result! Kicking off with some misty eyed recollections of the excellent show, much ground is covered from there on including the wide world of Edinburgh Fringe, ‘The Doctor’ and the issues it raises, acting as societal study, Alan Rickman and her acting peers, the intricacies of cancel culture and why it is so tricky, reaching facts first without the journey, her work with charities and how she became familiar and knowledgable with the plight of refugees (and indeed her path to that world), the ironies of British history, a few early moments in Essex, being a conduit as an actor, Shakespeare, Beckett, and remodelling older texts. But that’s scratching the surface - it’s a deep one, enjoy!JULIET LINKSOUT OF HER MINDIMDBTRULY MADLY DEEPLYFREEDOM FROM TORTUREBREAKING BARRIERSSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONDEBRISNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Laura Dockrill • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #389

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Pip catches up on events from the past few years with poet, author and good pal LAURA DOCKRILL!A very timely meeting with Laura this week, coming in after the finale of the Where’s Your Head At series that spanned the month of May. This is very much on message for the series, though this time we get to spend a whole episode with Laura, who was last featured a good few years ago on here. As you could imagine, a LOT of life has happened in those interviening years, but as you will hear in truly honest detail, it has been a mix of ecstatic highs and powerful lows, a rocky road upon which which she has felt every single bump. So just as a note up top, Laura goes into her experiences with pregnancy, though focused more on the later stages post-delivery. And that’s where things got tough to say the very least. This is an incredible frank conversation which goes into post partum psychosis, and all that entails - but it’s incredibly refreshing to hear such honesty and first person accounting of it all (especially from someone so nice with the wordplay and the pen), so here’s a good long chat with Laura Dockrill - give it some time and focus.LAURA LINKSTWITTERONLINEINSTAGRAMWHAT HAVE I DONE bookMore from LauraSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONDEBRISNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Where's Your Head At? Part 6 • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #388

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!You are especially welcome to the concluding part in a larger series called ‘Where’s Your Head At?’ - a collage of experiences from pandemic times.This is the final in the month long series which has seen Pip engage in a huge collage of conversations to co-incide with Mental Health Week, while extending the theme into the whole month of May. It’s been a thoroughly fascinating journey, as we have heard from so many brilliant people (Pip reels off the names at the start in case you’ve missed any!) and received a true insight as to where people’s heads have been and are at. It’s a unique time, but a time for the books, and these conversations are so crucial as a time capsule of where we are now and where we were when listened back to in the future. It’s so easy to normalise and forget this stuff with the fullness of time, so having a few recorded conversations at that time where things are really changing quickly is all the more important to capture. So join in on this, the final part in the puzzle, and enjoy the concluding part of the Where’s Your Head At series!TODAYS LINEUP!• Dr Suzi Gage• Simon Pegg• Konnie Huq• PC Leon McLeod• Chris MeadsWHERE'S YOUR HEAD AT LINKSSAMARITANSSAMARITANS SELF HELPSAMARITANS REAL PEOPLE REAL STORIESCALMSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONDEBRISNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!A very welcome and amazingly informative conversation with neuroscientist, musician and artist SIMON(E) SUN!Without wanting to risk the simplification and distilling of this incredible chat, just rest assured that it’s one of those very special Distraction Pieces moments that I can safely say will echo through the DPP corridors for episodes to come - so here’s your chance to get in on the ground floor and prepare your appropriate beverages / walking routes / solo time (or indeed group listening time ahead of this one. It involves sex, gender and the myriad intricacies within (there’s that distilling I hinted at then!), from body to brain to hormone and beyond, and you’ll hear how it all came about too which is super interesting. There is always time to learn, evolve, and grow with what we know, and this is a perfect opportunity for those who want to broaden their knowledge or hear how to transmit said knowledge in a succinct and effective way.

Daniel Sloss • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #381

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!A properly ace conversation with the insightful and hilarious comic DANIEL SLOSS!Pip catches Daniel 6 days deep in a 14 day quarantine overseas, which is of course the first item of business! The two compare notes on coping with such stints and methods of how to handle one’s self in isolation. From there on, we hear all about Daniel’s experiences in processing life into art and creativity and the many rewards and pitfalls involved. You may have seen his specials ‘X’ or ‘Jigsaw’, and you may even be among the many who have made drastic life changes as a result - this is an awesomely revealing behind the scenes of these and more, which includes his own lessons learned, the heavyweight complexities observed in writing some of them, the perils of clips being shown out of context, and the intensely tricky world of finding someone to love and who loves you in return. Oof, this one’s got it all. You shall enjoy.Oh also - some of the sharper four letter words in here too, in case you’re playing this in the company of those whose ears might not be ready or prepared.

For those of us who do know Kalyn and the crew, it’s a wonderful opportunity to catch an in depth rundown of the years events… Expect to hear about all things pandemically related up top - naturally - but with much ground being swiftly covered thereafter including Kalyn’s music production and artistic world through the past and into the future (some mad stuff in the works), cookery and making a mess, speaking of mess - the ill single ‘Yess I’m A Mess’ (Pip’s been bending my ear about this one for MONTHS now and it’s a heavy banger), Kalyn’s brittle bones and her lifetime of operations and treatment, activism, perspectives on disability and seeing the world entirely differently through touring, B Dolan and all things involving their introduction and how they’ve become tight homies over the years, Denver and its unique environment geographically and socially, fighting for change while acknowledging privilege and innumerable other treats. Such a great one right here.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Joining Pip this week for a bonus episode is the gawd, the GOAT, the king bee himself - please welcome Mr B DOLAN!A very welcome return from friend of the podcast B Dolan, and what makes this return even more triumphant and welcome is that B has survived not only another Winter (word to the Strange Famous crew), but an incredible amount of physical pain and endured some proper body wars over the past year. You will hear all about it within the episode, but I can safely assure you that this is a very sobering listen, especially for all B fans and listeners. This is the full story from the man himself about a traumatic year - pandemic aside - but one which is lined with gold, silver and diamonds and an ultimately positive outcome. It’s also one of inspiration, outlooks and hope, as B has had to change all business models and try some incredibly exciting new things in that realm. I don’t want to spoil anything but this is an amazing episode that you will get a huge amount from, regardless of whether you’ve heard of B or not. On a personal note - this is producer Buddy Peace writing this - B, I have something for you which is almost finished so bear with me big homie… This episode really hurt my heart a lot - but made me chuckle too. It’s a tough one but as I say - there is a lot of room for levity. So let’s all toast the king Bee and may his reign of dopeness continue long.

Nikesh’s new book ‘Brown Baby’ is available now with an accompanying podcast, and you’ll hear most of the foundation upon which it was all born here in this chat. It’s a big one, ranging from the deep questions posed by kids, being ‘authentically Asian’ and the minimal quotas for ‘Indian’ authors, diversity panels, the publisher Unbound, the all seeing Grandfather of the podcast at this point aka Musa Okawonga, the toll taken on his soul in promoting his books, the under/overcurrent of racism from seed to weed (I just made that up but it feels appropriate), raising kids to feel joy, Oscar Brown Jr via Nina Simone, and his past days as a rapper.

Tahar Rahim • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #370

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Pip joins forces this week with the incredible actor TAHAR RAHIM!You may have been introduced to him through the astonishing ‘Un Prophete’, and most recently you may have seen trailers for the new project ‘The Mauritanian’ - whatever the case, get better acquainted with this awesome human who goes boldy into the craft with a fearlessness and courage that translates directly through the screen. He goes into detail about the lockdown and the effects in him and the movie industry, his relationship with Mohamedou Slahi upon whom his latest release ‘The Mauritanian’ is based - and his experiences being detained in Guantanamo, truth in suffering and mirroring that in performance, rhythm and musicality of language (and different languages), The Eddy, auditions, cinematic antics which ultimately led to a career and also a low-key redemption, and he speaks with Pip about a handful of his other projects too. Mad enjoyable.TAHAR LINKSIMDBTHE MAURITANIANLINKS ON ROGER EBERT SITEMOHAMEDOU SLAHIUN PROPHETESCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Renay Richardson • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #369

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Another overdue one right here but somehow the perfect time to connect, this one’s a powerful catchup with Pip and one woman podcast squadron RENAY RICHARDSON!Renay is the CEO of Broccoli Content, and the Twitter bio says it all: “Production company creating opportunities for minority talent” - which gives you a strong idea of what’s happening over there in the Broccoli towers. Renay put together a five point pact last year on equality in audio, which ruffled feathers that needed ruffling, but also truly made bonds, bridges, and presented a positive and healthy agenda for the audio world. Breaking through the wall around the time of the George Floyd murder and surrounding strength that arose in the aftermath, it’s all the more poignant and really stood to shake up the industry, whether Renay was expecting it or not! So please, get to know Renay all the better and hear about what happened last year, what happened before, and what is coming along in the future. With the help of Broccoli Content, it all looks a bit healthier that’s for sure.EQUALITY IN AUDIO PACTRENAY on TWITTERBROCCOLI CONTENT ONLINETWITTERSONY PAGEYOUR BROCCOLI WEEKLYSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Nihal Arthanayake • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #368

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!It’s been a minute getting this one ready, as he and Pip go way back but the time has finally come - people, please welcome the airwave ray of sunshine NIHAL ARTHANAYAKE!Less ‘overdue’ and more ‘inevitable’, this one, as the two have some ace history together and have been in similar orbits for a good while. It’s a great time to catch Nihal, as thoughts have taken shape over the past year of pandemical times and while it’s not far removed enough to have that crystal clear clarity, it’s been enough time to get a picture of things and read the room a bit. So there’s that up top, but keep it locked for the behind the scenes music science - especially if you’re a hip hop head (mmm maybe of a certain vintage!), as this will make you smile a lot. Nihal used to rap and has been in the game for years (to quote Biggie, it made him an animal), and you’ll hear some ill stories and dope recollections but all backed up. As Nihal say, “Don’t get it twisted” - we shan’t, Nihal. Don’t you worry. ENJOY!NIHAL on TWITTERNIHAL on RADIO 5MC KRAYZEE A (aka YUNG NIHAL!

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Keep it locked, world - you're about to enter the mind of the one ASIM CHAUDHRY!...also known as Chabuddy G from People Just Do Nothing (or 'Girthy Geeza' on Twitch) - yes people, this is a wonderful meeting between Pip and Asim, as they catch up initially about all things Twitch with Asimbeing very much in the pocket of Big Streaming. Just messing - he runs a very awesome channel on there which you are strongly encouraged to partake in! From there, the breacrumb trail is perfectly laid as the two go in on all things streaming, work, acting, beat battles, truth in characters, accents and awkwardness (and outright racism), the history and heritage sewn into accents, enduring a bout with that 'rona, Bandersnatch and just all things worth speaking on. It's a great chance to get to know Asim in the solo sense, so please enjoy episode 367 with the man himself!ASIM on TWITTERASIM on IMDBCHABUDDY GCHABUDDY on INSTAGRAMASIM on TWITCHSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Adam Buxton (Mk 2) • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #366

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!It's the second coming of the ramblechat master, the long awaited return of ADAM BUXTON everybody!Were we ever so young... Episode 66 was the last time Pip and Adam met up, back in those faded Kodachrome / Polaroid days of wayback where everything smelled like freshly cut grass, and there was a slight chill in the air but you could feel that Summer was around the corner, we were all having picnics, I think some of us went skinnydipping in the sea at one point, we had cake... Anyway, it was a while ago, is what I'm getting at. Well, please re-welcome podmaster Adam Buxton who has been grinding out there to ridiculous degrees, be it with podcasting or authoring, and it's a real pleasure to hear Pip and Buckles catch up on everything that's been happening in the meantime. And it's been a lot. It's also quite significant that it's happening on Zoom, as they would both be resolute about not recording remotely in the early days of podcast making. This one's got it all, from personal moments and grief, to writing, parenthood, age, some extra levels to the ongoing Tom Cruise mythology, Pixies, dads, mums, and all the stuff you would want to hear. It's brilliant and a proper podcast treat for you to snack on out there or indoors, if it's still snowing or not. Whatever you want to do. Live your life innit. Enjoy!

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Another very long awaited, most anticapted episode this week as Pip chats with old pal and esteemed multi-disciplined podcaster / poet / author MUSA OKWONGA!But it doesn’t even end there, as you’ll hear - and why should it? Musa has played the long game, the marathon approach, with his career and we find him at a place of peace and spiritual restfulness. A fortune place to be in right now, but rest assured as his good vibes will resonate with you and find their way into your own pulse and rhythm. Long term listeners and fans will certainly know Musa as a kind of ‘godfather’ of this podcast (he comes up on here a lot!), and it’s a treat to hear about his zig zags, being good but not the best at everything, the early formative poetry years, being Pip’s end of level boss in those days of wayback, gruelling rehearsals, his father and the story of his incredible life, Eton schooling, Ed Sheeran, being ambitious in investment of time and seeing the UK from Berlin where he makes his home.

From the beginning on, it’s all Grade A material ranging from necessary pandemic catchups (this was recorded around Xmas 2020 by the way), divisions of society and culture and far more, Scottish independence, leaders, the reaction to the pandemic revealing the potential reaction to climate change, said Mr Goldstein, accents, his iPhone series, Mick Foley, Outlander, positives of social media and avoiding genre tropes in favor of realism.

Stacy’s been holding it down on the stage and screen for a minute - you may have seen her in both Nymphomaniac films, the great Redoubtable, or High Rise to name a little handful, and her latest film Archive is very much out and about now (with a ton more in the work diary). So it’s really nice to hear how things are going with her, relationships with sci-fi, performance hacks, AI themes, and so much more.

Sacha Dhawan • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #362

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Some perfect acting distraction for you this week as Pip is joined by the fantastic SACHA DHAWAN!A lovely meeting between Pip and Sacha, and with the two not having crossed paths previously this is a really nice chat which branches out into a fully fledged tree of chat. As I carry on, I’m all too aware that I did just type “tree of chat” but I’m committing to it. Beginning with the big topics and meandering gracefully through the labyrinth of emotions and feels, they cover a ton and not exclusive to acting either - from pandemic action to acting through such a time, taking breaks for mental health, anxiety and predicting it, lessons from lockdown, pressure from heritage and coming to terms with one’s own story, confidence, art and cautiousness growing up, playing the truth, his previous roles and those forthcoming, being a role model and all together so much more. A brilliant one for you this week.

We are now in 2021 World, with a whole new 12 months ahead of us until we do the merry go round all over again, but when you think about for even a split second, isn’t it insane how much can happen in those twelve months? Even in a day?! Well, while none of us can slow the hands of time, we can most certainly take a minute to just sit right there, and listen to Pip tell us about his favourite films of the year!By the way, about that last sentence - yes it was a vague Fresh Prince reference and yes it was meant to rhyme. Anyway - have a lovely podcast listen, and see if Pip’s thoughts resonate with your views on these films if you’ve seen them, or maybe arm the cannon with some films to line up for your forthcoming viewing time. Some true gems on there. So enjoy, argue with yourself if you need to, but remember this is a personal opinion list - Pip is not taking your own favourites from you and erasing them.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Cinematic perfection is upon us once more, as Pip finally aligns schedules with the incredible and inspiring actor MYANNA BURING!It’s another great one folks, but I mean when has the Distraction Pieces Podcast ever been less than? That was rhetorical. But seriously… Anyway - here’s a beautiful chance to enjoy a wonderful chat across the internet lines with MyAnna, who you will know from one of the most intense films in movie history The Descent, or equally intense movie Kill List, or maybe from the marginally less intense (depending on your age perhaps) Twilight saga. At any rate, if you are yet to make her acquaintance, prepare to make a new pal right here through a packed chat, containing everything including making the decision to pare down over lockdown, how groundbreaking The Descent was when looking in retrospect, help along the way (this podcast has spiritual guidance from Michael Smiley and Stephen Graham of course), stories being the backbone of society, on-camera process, the scale of Twilight, traveling a ton as a kid and her triangle of the Middle East, Sweden and the UK, hard bread and The Witcher! Finally though, here are your three commandments: 1. Know your lines; 2. Turn up on time and 3. Don’t be a dick. Easy!

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!An ALMOST in person DPP right here - well, Pip and the guest being in the same city, in a country far far away from their respective homesteads anyway - please enjoy a brilliantly upfront and honest chat with actor RAHUL KOHLI!I say upfront and honest - basically it’s one where sentiments aren’t hinted at, and feelings and thoughts are addressed in a mature and adult manner. He and Pip are currently in Vancouver, Canada, in the midst of filming in some very airtight pandemic conditions. You can hear all about that, which of course branches out into how life is in Canada, viewing the pandemic from a different country, the attitudes in the US, race and the media, privilege, social media tone deafness, becoming a Twitter celeb (not as glamorous as it sounds), what re-Trump-ing says about you, Mike Bithell and the amazing North Star Rising project he and Pip guested on, auditions, gaming voiceovers, acting, and the many intricate nuances of invoking Bollywood.

Taron Egerton • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #350

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!What better way to follow last episode’s acting aceness than with another UK treasure, yes indeed Distraction Pieces famsquad it is the brilliant TARON EGERTON!As with so many of these episodes featuring the UK acting crew, there is an over-riding spiritual link by way of Stephen Graham, so props must be given to him first off! This one feels like another ‘long time coming’ episode, where it was just a matter of time and arrangements to lock it in. Naturally there’s lockdown talk up top, which is always fascinating as we all want to know how it’s been affecting each other - Taron’s found himself in Wales, which brings us to his upbringing (including Liverpool), and from then on you can expect some good talk on social media, RADA and family whip-rounds for auditions, early days (not THAT long ago!) on Kingsman, lessons learned through each film, voice acting vs acting-acting, Matthew Vaughn, Dexter Fletcher, Tom Hardy, his own filmography (including Eddie The Eagle and Rocketman to name a couple), and tons more. Uplifting and inspirational - you shall enjoy!EPISODE LINKS:TARON ONLINETARON on INSTAGRAMTARON on TWITTERTARON on IMDBROCKETMANLINKS FOR SCROOBIUS PIP & SPEECH DEVELOPMENT:SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!The perfect actorial masterclass and relaxed chat scenario as Pip meets the glorious MAXINE PEAKE!Kicking things off with reflections of pandemic and lockdown times (essential to check in up top!), Pip and Maxine get into the whole acting biz and it’s a thrilling old journey - from acting itself and what it’s like being around yourself as an actor, to London fatigue and burnout, to venues in Manchester and up North, her paths and journeys, experiences at RADA, representation and diversity and how more is of utmost importance and the old fashioned character trait of ‘being Northern’. But so much more. A packed one, and one you will enjoy for certain.EPISODE LINKS:MAXINE on TWITTERMAXINE on IMDBFUNNY COWLINKS FOR SCROOBIUS PIP & SPEECH DEVELOPMENT:SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Corey Taylor • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #348

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Metalheads rejoice, as you are about to hear a properly great chat with Pip and COREY 'MF' TAYLOR of SLIPKNOT!While Corey may be in a relaxed and certainly not on-stage mode for the chat, that’s probably the perfect setting as we get to hear from the engaged, stoic and reflective Corey. Beginning with all things pandemic and quarantine, it’s actually the perfect place to start as a lot of his new material was recorded in a very responsible and safety conscious mode, but from there on we get to hear about his teen songwritings, fearlessness, collaboration processes overseas, filling up notebooks, depression bouts and mental health, and US politics - but all with a very keen eye on the positive. So it’s a great inspiration for those who are feeling it right now.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!One for not only the hip hop heads but also the cookery crew as Pip gets deep in the rap kitchen with ACTION BRONSON!There’s no doubt about it, Action has done a ton in the past decade and by the looks of it all, had a goddamn blast while doing it. But he’s always kept a very decent squad around him and stayed on track and focused, as you can tell by his insane output and varied resumé. Here’s a chance to catch up with dude as he talks over the internet to Pip about it all - working out, old skool gaming, pandemic UFC, how he got into rap music and the cassette culture that came along with it, New York, an alternate universe chef career, features with rappers and being in the studio with some of the greatest, eating well, knocking humbleness on the head, acting in a Scorcese film, being behind a show from concept to credits and MAD amounts more in between.

Dizzee Rascal • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #344

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!One of the episodes you’ve either been waiting for a while to align, or one that you didn’t realise you were looking forward to until it dropped - this week Pip is joined by none other than UK rap and grime superstar DIZZEE RASCAL!Such a great chat with the two, covering all kinds of bases including how he could have been an actor, the lessons learned through pirate radio and the transferrable skills absorbed through the old skool days, being into grunge and rock, the low end theory, going for self, being a proper music nerd and how it sheltered him from a more rocky road, touring with Justin Timberlake, the importance of singalong jams, not being made in to a popstar, making videos AND ALSO some awesome music production insider info for the true heads! Which is great to hear because you don’t always get a glimpse into that side of Dizzee’s world - and it’s important because he’s produced so much of his own music. Anyway - a load for the fans and those not so familiar, so get involved and enjoy!'E3 AF' is out in October - be alert...EPISODE LINKS:DIZZEE on TWITTERDIZZEE on INSTAGRAME3 AFL.L.L.L.LINKS FOR SCROOBIUS PIP & SPEECH DEVELOPMENT:SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Bozzers • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #343

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Joining Pip for a bonus episode today is the wonderful wrestling fanatic, journalist and Tuesday Night Jaw host BOZZERS!Absolutely one for the wrestling heads right here - of course you would want to spend hours in Bozzers’ company anyway, no question, but right here this time the focus is on the wide world of wrestling. While the chat goes on to cover other elements of her illustrious life - her anxiety and dealing with it, her journalism background and so on - you can expect to hear about so much to do with wrestling itself, including where it is now, where it was then, and everything in between. Of course, the ‘Speaking Out’ movement is addressed too, which is of course conflicting for all wrestling superfans, but an issue that surely all fans are resolute and unified on. Anyway - without unpacking the whole thing here, just listen and enjoy this ace bonus with Pip and Bozzers!EPISODE LINKS:BOZZERS on TWITTERTUESDAY NIGHT JAWSPEAKING OUT MOVEMENTLINKS FOR SCROOBIUS PIP & SPEECH DEVELOPMENT:SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDSDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.
