Mark Mylod • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #484

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by TV and film director behind almost everything MARK MYLOD!An amazing chat with someone who began their storied career working on some cornerstone shows in BBC history like Grandstand, Eastenders and Blue Peter but ALSO Maid Marian which was a huge deal for those of us of a certain age, let's say... 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. It makes for a really fascinating chat which will vibrate with everyone and anyone who appreciates their media, on the small or big screen. Or massive screen at home. However you get down.THE MENUIMDBMORE MARKMAID MARIANSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITCHSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONBLAIR TWITCH PROJECTDEBRISNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

Maisie Adam • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #483

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by the brilliant and hilarious comic MAISIE ADAM!A delightful episode which goes into so much in not that long of a time, but certainly enough to get you fully up to speed on all things Maisie. So much ground is covered, including the Brixton Academy level of popularity, the cost of living crisis not being lost on her in relation to people turning up at shows, a misleading non-recommendation for 80's Melbourne passed on from her dad, the shifting sands of the pandemic timeline, Pip guesting on her podcast decades ago in 2019, growing up in a dip, old stories from the past, auditioning and the road to acting which became the road to comedy, surprise Southend appearances from hip hop royalty, and what's happening now. Awesome stuff.

Alistair Green • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #482

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by the hilarious and great comic ALISTAIR GREEN!You could also add actor to that list of accolades as Alistair is busy in front of the camera too, as you will hear. Kicking off with heavy metal nights and the tour t-shirt, it's a fun slip n' slide down the road of tangents as Pip and Al get down to the business of social media and rolling news being too quick for a comic hot take, making videos, creative process, making situations into comedy, the Prince Charles Cinema screening of his videos as a film (and the wonder of the cinema itself), conspiranoia, Alan Partridge and trying to resist goofing while a take is in progress, Ted Lasso and tons more. Awesome stuff and definitely one for Al heads and those who are yet familiar - much fun!

Adam Kay • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #481

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by the multi-hyphenate comic, author and doctor ADAM KAY!Well maybe doctor in the 'present' tense might not be strictly true but it's a nice trio right there. 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...

Nikesh Patel • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #480

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by the excellent actor NIKESH PATEL!A great ep with a nice instant camaraderie from the opening moments onwards, which serves as a lovely antidote to otherwise maddening times in the local and global sense. Nikesh has been in front of the camera for a minute, and leaving a trail of fans, happy faces and more of that camaraderie at the end of each project - you will have seen him on variously sized screens over the years, but now's the time to hear his story from the origin to the present. And let's just say that this episode was spiritually overseen by Guz Khan.IMDBTWITTERINSTAGRAMONLINESTARSTRUCKFOUR WEDDINGS seriesSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITCHSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONDEBRISNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

Sope's BUSY, and has been putting in work on the stage and screen for a good minute. Here's a perfect opportunity to hear from the person behind the roles, in a really nice and relaxed but satisfyingly detailed chat which covers so much. Process, origin story, the notion of self tapes and how to identify authenticity in yourself, appealing to those without sight and those without hearing, past roles, action and combat and his athletic background, Gangs Of London of course and TONS more.

Jim Bob (Carter USM) • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #478

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by UK indie treasure JIM BOB (Carter The Unstoppable Sex Machine)!While 'listeners of a certain age' will get instant nostalgia feels from the very mention of Carter USM, this episode is by no means one for them and them alone! 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...

By everything, of course that entails Lauren's childhood and upbringing, influences, process, road to professional status, proper proper Newcastle, the anxiety of ticket sales, and so much general life goodness in between. What's so cool is hearing about all the actual bits in between the performances - the stuff that underpins the attitude and the performance. But you get everything else too of course! Amazing - follow Lauren's moves and catch a show if you can, you shall not regret it.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined, once again, for the universal good of podcast listeners, by JORDAN GRAY!It's a much requested and long awaited return, and so much has happened in Jordan's world since the last visit in actually quite a short span of time. We catch up with Jordan hot off their triumphant return from Edinburgh Fringe which proved to be a VERY full on month of highs, and the two catch up and check in on all of that, as well as The Voice, shows and scripts and coming up with material, new audiences, class, investing in yourself, a uniquely Marvel experience which is just wonderful and you have to hear, what's coming next, and just all sorts of good vibe material that we've come to expect and DEMAND from Jordan over past DPP appearances!

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!

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by director TOM GEORGE!The second in a two part podcast mini series I guess you could call it, where Pip catches up with one of the people immediately involved with the murder mystery See How They Run. It also happens that the two people in said mini podcast series were ALSO immediately involved with This Country - a mockumentary of which Pip is a card-carrying superfan of. This is a Friday bonus episode featuring director Tom, who goes into a ton of the awesome behind the scenes business in creating This Country and See How They Run, as well as his past and future, and so much more - I mean if you like anything mentioned in this writeup you'll be listening already so I'll let you crack on.

Charlie was one of those responsible for the whole thing (along with his sister Daisy May), but obviously NOT ONLY that... As you'll hear, there's a ton going on with Charlie, including a starring role in See How They Run alongside some insanely great acting talent (none of which is lost on him), and together he and Pip cover all things fantasy football-style casting, the Tom George comfort animal, the process of ideas and realising them, refining scripts on the go, working with Daisy and Tom, his roles in Stath Lets Flats and Avenue 5 (in front of the camera or in the writers room), and everything else. A deep one which covers the fun of it all alongside the hard work involved.

We find Paddy in a good place, which is lovely to hear, and delve into the past again, in a number of ways, to hear about past advice he gave Pip in the first podcast appearance, class, revelations on Broadway, what is available to you with the appropriate outlook, that old ever present bastard of imposter syndrome, on set relationships, directing one's self, his past films including Journeyman and Tyrannosaur, House Of The Dragon, Riding The Low, and all the other extra trimmings tha come with all of that.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by comic, host and writer FRANKIE BOYLE!I mean, multi-hyphenate would kind of sum it all up to some degree. 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.

But previously of the podcast 2 Girls 1 Shop, in case you were fortunate enough to catch that one... The joy of the new one though is that it truly requires zero back story. Charlie and Nina talk about sex. And now you're all caught up! But if you are new to their world, you're in for true treats and knowledge and wisdom, as well as a lot of incredible back catalogue too. On this episode though, it's a fantastic chance to get to hear from them about all things past, present and future, including how they met, what got them into podcasting (or 'who' - in this case, mostly Stu Whiffen), building up a backlog of amazing stories, sex positivity, the 50 Shades effect, dealing with attitudes of all sorts, their experiences in dealing with the public in a shop and social media environment, and all the rest that you would want to hear about.

Gaspar Noe • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #452

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by directing legend GASPAR NOE!Given that Pip had a mere handful of hours to prepare before that nerve jangling Zoom chat admission screen came up, this chat with Gaspar Noe went as smooth as you could possibly imagine. 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. Have a look at the references below if you miss anything - most are here - but otherwise, enjoy this amazing chat with Gaspar Noe and lifelong Gaspar Noe fan Pip!GASPAR LINKSGASPAR IMDBVORTEXREFERENCES IN PODCASTKENJI MIZOGUCHIMIKIO NARUSEKEISUKE KINOSHITAANDREI RUBLEV by TARKOVSKYLA NUIT AMERICAINE by TRUFFAUTPARADISE LOVE by ULRICH SEIDLSUNDAYS & CYBELE by BOURGUIGNONREPULSION by POLANSKISECONDS by FRANKENHEIMERTHREADSTODD SOLONDZSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITCHSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONDEBRISNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLE Hosted on Acast.

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.

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.

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! Hell of a time y'all.Enjoy the chat!MOPES LINKSSTRANGE FAMOUSBANDCAMPTWITTERPROLYPHIC & REANIMATORPROLYPHIC & BUDDY PEACESCROOBIUS 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.

Geowizard aka Tom Davies • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #435

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by Youtube geography champ and amazing idea generator GEOWIZARD!Otherwise known as Tom Davies, of course. Some of you might be all like "Who in the good name of all things Youtubular is Geowizard now?", while some of you might in contrast be all like "Ahh, YES!" - well, either way, both camps are in for a treat. 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.

Youssef Kerkour • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #434

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined for acting masterclass with YOUSSEF KERKOUR!Seriously, this one goes deep… You might want to bring a notepad to this one if you’re in the least bit interested in the craft of acting because Youssef drops jewels like he keeps his valuables in a fishing net. Even though he’s sleepless through a recent addition to the family, a ton of goodies get investigated including turning a corner on publicity and PR, generating your own art, his traveled upbringing, the mess of working around 9-11, walls around people and countries, House Of Gucci and starring alongside Adam Driver and Al Pacino, dissolving one’s ego, the steady calm payoff of preparation, being prepared to go off script, casting and his various work along the way. Awesome and valuable, you’ll love it.YOUSSEF LINKSIMDBTWITTERINSTAGRAMHOUSE OF GUCCIHOMESCROOBIUS 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.

Dan Schreiber • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #432

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by podcasting heavyweight, author and comic DAN SCHREIBER!Surely you will be familiar with the podcast No Such Thing As A Fish by now - either as a hardcore listener or from seeing it time and time again on top podcast lists. It’s the show you know Dan Schreiber from, being part of the greater QI stables and leading from Dan’s own ‘elf’ status on QI. Here’s a great chance to hear Dan’s origin story, geographically and career-wise, and good lord it’s a fascinating one. From Hong Kong to Australia to the UK, weaving in all sorts of awesome entertainment job nuggets all the way as well as brewing an interesting race identity within himself, making friends with some greats along the path and ultimately finding himself in a wonderful spot in the media landscape. Oh and his parents were celebrity hairdressers in Hong Kong as well. Too much to synopsise here of course so just listen to the episode, it’s a genuine goodie.DAN LINKSNO SUCH THING AS A FISHDAN on TWITTERSHOW US YOUR SH•TQITHE THEORY OF EVERYTHING ELSESCROOBIUS 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.

Rob Williams • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #431

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. ENJOY!Watch 'Screw' hereROB LINKSIMDBTWITTERSCROOBIUS 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.

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. She’s gained a demonstrable clarity over what was happening, and this podcast proves what power one can gain over something that attempts to gain its own foothold. She also goes into her own activism and vegan lifestyle too. Evanna’s book ‘The Opposite Of Butterfly Hunting’ is available now from all good bookstores.* trigger warning - eating disorders and the knock on effects are discussed in this episode, so please take note if that's something that you're not in a place for right now.Just in case it's of use, here is a website with helplines, if you need assistance.EVANNA LINKSTHE OPPOSITE OF BUTTERFLY HUNTINGINSTAGRAMHARRY POTTERKINDERBEAUTYCHICKPEEPS PODCASTSCROOBIUS 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!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.

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.

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. It took place in the Book Club in Shoreditch, featuring the resident cast here but also a splendid selection of very special guests who you will surely be aware of… Zane Lowe, DJ Yoda, Don Letts, Lindy Layton, ah come on, so many more. 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. So please, get yourself appropriately prepared for a glimpse into a brilliant club night, and hear the origin story from the people who made it (aside from the punters of course!) - PART 2 OF 2!WE.ARE.LIZARDS LINKSTHE BOOK CLUBSCROOBIUS PIPSTU WHIFFENDJ DESTRUCTION • (new track here)DISCOTHEQUE CREDITSCHRIS GLASSENHARDCORE LISTING with DJ YODA on vinylSCROOBIUS 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.

It took place in the Book Club in Shoreditch, featuring the resident cast here but also a splendid selection of very special guests who you will surely be aware of… Zane Lowe, DJ Yoda, Don Letts, Lindy Layton, ah come on, so many more. 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. So please, get yourself appropriately prepared for a glimpse into a brilliant club night, and hear the origin story from the people who made it (aside from the punters of course!) - PART 1 OF 2!

Irvine Welsh • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #420

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by Leith’s finest, the amazing writer IRVINE WELSH!There is no doubt you are familiar with Irvine’s work - maybe you’re a deep diver and know all the novels and work he’s been involved in, or maybe you’ve seen Trainspotting and that’s all. 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.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by comedian, writer and actor LIAM WILLIAMS!A very cool episode right here as we hear Pip and Liam basically meet for the very first time, which is a nice touch! Oh and respect to Alex Beardall by the way, whoever he is. 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.

Katy Wix • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #418

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by brilliant actor, writer and author KATY WIX!A really engaging and honest check in about so much on the whole, but with a ton which will certainly appeal to the writers out there on account of the really useful process and practice thoughts. 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! Refreshing and inspiring.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by acting treasure DANIEL MAYS!A seemingly long overdue catchup in session right here, as Pip and Daniel talk shop and chop it up like old acting mates in a delightful and wide ranging episode. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Joining Pip this week is the incredible director of ‘Censor’, it’s PRANO BAILEY-BOND!An excellent get together featuring some really fruitful angles and insightful thoughts, as Pip and Prano get into the magic of film. But not only that of course - you know the Distraction Pieces Podcast well enough to know the many paths and tangents it takes, and through those you shall get to know Prano well indeed. From her Wales upbringings and VHS shelves, to short film, to doing the whole movie promotion thing remotely at this point in time which brings its own distortions and abstractions, to the relationship of the team behind the film, and how the power of boredom and beoing outside the cool kid circle can bring about its own moments of inspiration. More than enough to get you excited for the marvelous ‘Censor’!

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Another one for the books right here, as we welcome writer, dancer, podcaster and worlds more, KELECHI OKAFOR!…also known as Kelechnekoff. A supreme recording for you here as Pip joins forces with one of the greatest voices in the game, as you will hear throughout or may have of course heard via the Say Your Mind podcast. Kelechi is holding it down in a wild world, while maintaining dignity and finesse in times which certainly call for it (though it can be a pure struggle). An ace chat branching out into everything from being a “dickhead in recovery”, the juggles of a new mum, the white supremacist patriarchy, the co-opting of phrases to diminish, how protests are defused, “tear singlet energy”, Yoruba, Lagos to Peckham, race transcendance, Haiti, the angry Black woman narrative, past trauma, tarot and creative arts - but as you can well imagine, that’s only the surface of the iceberg.

Kicking off with some necessary salutes and bigups to Ireland, it branches out into family life and what home is, Shane MacGowan and The Pogues, Dublin life, clubbing and her early days, being a part of a musical family, the infinite journey of music through digging in the crates, technology and what it means for DJing, the relativity of what ‘new’ music is, from rave to radio, learning the ropes of what she does, her podcasting world, being an author, and the Zane Lowe slot.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

He and Pip kick off with pandemic privilege and easily transition into work and acting, including tying your identity into your profession, remembering who the f*ck you are, having dayjobs around the first season of Inbetweeners, Peckham upbringings, the trials and tribulations of being a Millwall fan, MMA and his new podcast with Drunkcast homie Stu Whiffen and a ton more.BLAKE HARRISON LINKSTWITTERIMDBINSTAGRAMINBETWEENERSTODD MARGARETSCROOBIUS 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 great and very cool, calm and collected chat with UK acting royalty who has been a welcome fixture on screens great and small, it’s JOHN SIMM!While a good gang of you will know John through Human Traffic (I mean come on), or maybe Life On Mars, or perhaps his new show Grace - or let’s face it, his entire film and tv-ography, but he was also in a band for a stretch back then too! All of this is of course covered in the conversation he had with Pip over Zoom, which includes pandemical flex, being a teenager again through PS2, being in a literal Dad Band, freedom to be himself in front of others through acting, learning acting, and all things craft, skill and inspiration.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Once again, paths that have been log eluding each other have finally converged and here we are, as Pip finally meets the amazing singer songwriter RAG’N’BONE MAN!Judging by the Youtube views for his single ‘Human’, as one of the billion+ viewers and fans, YOU - dear listener - are probably partly responsible for his astronomic rise to stardom from humble beginning in Uckfield / Brighton. And he we are! The homie is a household name. So hear his tale from beginning to end, from said beginnings to doing PR through a pandemic, the formulations and assembly of his new album, Nashville (obviously not the US series, great as it was), scenes in London and Brighton, paying dues, stage presence, opening for Pharoahe Monch and other such legends, lockdown with the kid, achieving warmth in his new record, getting a band in a room and more… Excellent stuff, enjoy and keep an ear out for the new album!RAG'N'BONE MAN LINKSTWITTERONLINEINSTAGRAMALL YOU EVER WANTEDSCROOBIUS 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.

B Dolan - The Surgery Episode • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #376

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. Never has his song ‘Still Here’ been more pertinent.B DOLAN LINKSTWITTERONLINEBANDCAMPPATREONDISCORDEPIC BEARDMENNETHERRAP on MINECRAFTSCROOBIUS 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!A real feelgood dip in the ever-refreshing acting pool for you this week as Pip is joined by national treasure JANE HORROCKS!Not only an actor though, our Jane - she’s been singing forever and more recently has taken her own dip into the equally refreshing pool of podcasting, which is how this whole episode came about. So we all collectively thank the good lord of Pod for that (amen). A really nice chat which takes in the whole world of Jane, from her lockdown routine of cycling and being very present in observing the changing of the seasons, the importance of pausing, podcasting about bees, writing shows, new romantics, retention and finding her crowd, along with all pertinent origin stories!

Nikesh Shukla • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #374

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Following on from a triple episode week of pure musical commentary, here is a straight up excellent chat with the powerful and acclaimed writer NIKESH SHUKLA!So much to get into on this one, and Nikesh and Pip cram a huge amount into what could certainly go on for a good few more hours. 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. So much CONTENT! Haha. Just playing.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

So he has enlisted the help of a good friend of his - that’s right - you’ve seen the episode description already so you KNOW who it is - it’s Limerick’s finest, Blindboy!Hopefully you’ll be familiar with Blindboy from his own podcast (if not, you must make a point of incorporating that into your life), or maybe you heard a distant episode of Distraction Pieces with him, or maybe you’re already down with the Rubberbandits. Whatever the case - you’re in very good hands here as the two get down to the year’s business over two episodes. There are too many nuggets to even hint at here so just dive in, enjoy and know that you’ve made the right listening choice. Congratulations. And all the utmost season’s bests to you and your nears and dears! Have a lovely end of 2020. A year for the books right there.BLINDBOY on TWITTERBLINDBOY PODCAST • Acast • SpotifyBLINDBOY TWITCHBLINDBOY on iPLAYERX DISTRACTION PIECES CREW!

MyAnna Buring • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #356

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!

Rahul Kohli • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #355

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. It’s a packed one and it’s great. Get yerself in a listening situation.EPISODE LINKS:RAHUL on TWITTERRAHUL on IMDBRAHUL AGENTTWEETSTORM FUNTIMESiZOMBIEX DISTRACTION PIECES CREW!

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.

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 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.

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.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Joining Pip at long last this week is JOE TALBOT of IDLES!A very in-depth, therapeutic and cathartic chat for you this episode (actually - lemme get this out the way up top - it’s a LITTLE sweary so don’t play in front of the young’uns perhaps), as Pip and Joe get all the way into everything. Of course the mandatory ‘present times’ talk is addressed and lifted at the front, to then reveal the creepy crawlies and seething underbelly of the world and greater universe beneath. But the chat accesses some very important and intriguing places which need addressing, including thanks and blessings, after effects of worldwide trauma, conspiracies (theories and otherwise), the state of the nation and the ripples created, politics through music, personal trauma and exorcising its demons (or working with them), and of course MUSIC! Some great talk about Idles’ new album ‘Ultramono’, and the influences of genres like hip hop on its production (nice talk for the nerds - I speak for myself in that!).

El-P • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #337

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Absolute hip hop perfection this episode as Pip has a proper full length chat with rapper/producer/composer - or for brevity’s sake, half of Run The Jewels - El-P!Whether you’re familiar with El-P from his way back underground (dare I say ‘indie rap’) days of Company Flow alongside Bigg Jus and Mr Len, and of course the label Def Jux (including his sonic architecture of the Cannibal Ox album), or his solo work wearing many hats per album – OR – his present work alongside Killer Mike as 50% of Run The Jewels, you will get a ton out of this. Obviously RTJ talk is discussed, but as a fan, Pip goes in deep for the true heads and gets the background info from El’s days (bad memory not withstanding) hustling the Tower Records mailout system, freestyling on the Stretch & Bobbito show, the Rawkus days, collabos, producing for self and as a team, taking on difficult projects to get out of conventions, “delving into water”, and scoring films (like the forthcoming 'Capone'). Oh and also releasing an eerily prescient 4th RTJ album during a pandemic. If you’re familiar with El-P’s work over the years or have listened to Fantastic Damage more than a few times, you’ll understand that a pandemic is probably the perfect time for an El-related project. He might have been born yesterday sir, but he stayed up all night - it’s El-Producto!EPISODE LINKS:EL-P on TWITTERRUN THE JEWELSFANTASTIC DAMAGE reissueCAPONECOMPANY FLOW 'Funcrusher Plus'LINKS FOR SCROOBIUS PIP & SPEECH DEVELOPMENT:SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS DISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Paapa Essiedu • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #332

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Maybe you know Paapa Essiedu through his stellar Hamlet performance. Maybe you know him from starring in the absolutely stunning ‘I May Destroy You’, alongside the incredible Michaela Coel. Whatever degree you know Paapa, here’s a perfect chance to get all the better acquainted with him, as Pip has a chat with him about the whole lot and even more than that. From the themes of I May Destroy you, which leads on to a greater conversation about consent in general and all the subjects raised by the series, to life as a young Black Londoner, to his taking on Hamlet, hints at a possible parallel world career, ‘Gangs Of London’ and London as a backdrop, and the importance of preparation as an actor. Wonderful stuff which will be of interest to - well, everyone - but certainly actors young and old, who would be greatly inspired by such a skilful actor.

Ashley 'Dotty' Charles • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #331

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Ashley ‘Dotty’ Charles (aka Amplify Dot) joins Pip this week for a wonderful and in depth chat about the broad ranging topic of outrage. We all know what outrage is because invariably we’ve experienced it at some point in the very recent past or just in general in our internet / non-internet lives… It’s therefore fascinating to hear in more detail exactly what it is, how it is used, the mechanics of it and how we can use it more creatively and effectively. From the recent pandemic issues including Dominic Cummings and Boris, to racial frustrations and wider issues involving Katie Hopkins (now on her own Twitter lockdown), Piers Morgan and Trump. It’s not all about them though - this is an audio handbook on how we don’t just have to speak out all.the.time.at.the.same.volume… In fact, Ashley tells us why this actually backfires and lessens the overall effect in the long run. Anyway - too much to synopsise here, dig in a listen and enjoy, and remember - “outrage should be a disruption”.EPISODE LINKS:ASHLEY 'DOTTY' CHARLES on TWITTERASHLEY in THE GUARDIANOUTRAGED bookOUTRAGED from ROUGH TRADELINKS FOR SCROOBIUS PIP & SPEECH DEVELOPMENT:SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS DISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Defund The Police: Discussed • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #330

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!A very timely and hugely informative Friday bonus for you this week, as Pip is joined by two guests, one after the other. The first is Alex S. Vitale (professor of sociology at Brooklyn College, US), followed by Dr Adam Elliott-Cooper (University Of Greenwich, humanities and social science department).With everything we’ve seen over the last month in most recent history, one sentiment and statement that’s been gaining traction is “Defund The Police”. On face value and without any further research or intrigue, this could come across in an entirely different way than it is supposed to. Pip did a good amount of digging, and after being passed along to appropriate potential guests, meetings were set up and he arrived at two people who are well versed and well equiped to speak on the issue. In the interest of balance, he speaks to Alex from the US, where the issue is very pertinent and pressing and also has very different implications for society there, and also Adam from the UK, who goes into what this means for the UK and the nuances involved.It’s a complex matter for sure, but along with the accompanying links from Pip to break down what’s been talked about, and a comprehensive conclusion, you’ll hopefully be way more up on the subject than you might have been previously, and have a good understanding on what it means to say ‘defund the police’. Be informed, share, and enjoy.EPISODE LINKS:ADAM ELLIOTT on TWITTERADAM ONLINEALEX VITALE on TWITTERALEX ONLINEALEX's ARTICLE in THE GUARDIANLINKS FOR SCROOBIUS PIP & SPEECH DEVELOPMENT:SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS DISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

A nice coverage of menu items from the difference in perspectives of last year and this year so far, directing Days Of The Bagnold Summer and how it was an unoffical Pip biopic without the Pip (let’s call it a ‘bioPip’), appreciation for Monica Dolan, the Footlights crew at Cambridge, working with his wife, and of course all things Inbetweeners and Friday Night Dinner.EPISODE LINKS:SIMON on IMDBDAYS OF THE BAGNOLD SUMMERTHE INBETWEENERSLINKS FOR SCROOBIUS PIP & SPEECH DEVELOPMENT:SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS DISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Akala (Revisited) • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip

Welcome, welcome, welcome to a very special re-release episode of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip.This episode is a re-release of episode 65 of DPP, where Pip spoke to Akala. This is such a perfect companion to the re-release of the Killer Mike episode, as it reflects upon certain similar issues but from a UK voice. Akala is someone who’s been fighting the good fight for years, whether it be dropping heavyweight albums or taking the public to school live on air with ease and confidence (dropping pure knowledge on topics that have been sorely missed from ‘traditional’ education). This podcast was recorded in 2015, and so it’s very interesting to look back on it with some hindsight and benefit of knowing what happened in the years after it dropped. I’m sure a lot of us feel like we probably wanna go back to then… Anyway - it’s a wonderful episode so again, take some time with it, and let it into your day. You will not regret a minute.EPISODE LINKS:AKALA on TWITTERAKALA on YOUTUBEAKALA on THE INTERNETLINKS FOR SCROOBIUS PIP & SPEECH DEVELOPMENT:SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS DISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Killer Mike (Revisited) • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip

Welcome, welcome, welcome to a very special re-release episode of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip.This episode is a re-release of episode 12 of DPP, where Pip spoke to Killer Mike. Since the episode aired, it remains one of the most referenced episodes from Pip, and with good reason. Mike drops so much science that is not a casual listen. This is one to take time with, to reflect on and to pay attention to. What we’re seeing in the USA right now is an ongoing trauma which seems to know no bounds, so hearing this chat from 2014 will ring some unfortunately familiar bells… However - as I say - Mike drops pure gems and it is a real treasure to have such knowledge made available. This is some public service shit. So download, take your time, and spend some moments with Pip and Killer Mike.EPISODE LINKS:KILLE MIKE on TWITTERKILLER MIKE'S SPEECHRUN THE JEWELSKILLER MIKE on THE INTERNETLINKS FOR SCROOBIUS PIP & SPEECH DEVELOPMENT:SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS DISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 326 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is going in on one of his older releases - his debut in fact - that’s right, Pip is going behind NO COMMERCIAL BREAKS!A true milestone in the path of all that is Pip, and with a look at the whole thing with the benefit of distance (social or otherwise) and hindsight, he is able to go through it with an objectivity but not without emotion. It’s interesting to hear the tracks that hit home and the ones that he doesn’t enjoy, and the honesty that comes with a look at one’s older work is refreshing. So join Pip as he fires up the old Sonos and walks you through a very important step in his development, with No Commercial Breaks!EPISODE LINKS:NO COMMERCIAL BREAKSNO COMMERCIAL BREAKS on SPOTIFYSAGE FRANCIS • RewriteLINKS FOR SCROOBIUS PIP & SPEECH DEVELOPMENT:SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONNORTH STAR RISINGPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS DISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 325 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!We are still in lockdown (lockdown has been lifted), and while we’re all going in to work (no going into work) and staying alert (SO much more alert than usual), Pip decided to round up a willing crew for some further drunk antics by way of the second ISOLATION DRUNKCAST!This one right here is the Back To The Future / Godfather / Karate Kid of podcasts. A three parter of crazy huge proportions, featuring not only Pip and the usual Hardcore Listing crew Stu and Chris, but also the truly great comedians / Off Menu duo of JAMES ACASTER and ED GAMBLE! A heavy affair combining all manner of drink combos, raised voices and flaring tempers all conducted over zoom through five mini computer screens. It actually didn’t stray too far outside the realms of decency, this one, and while it’s absolutely not radio friendly, you’ll most certainly enjoy this one like you surely did the previous Isolation Drunkcast! So, as always, pour yourself a Scroobius (or a protein shake), set yourself a lil’ blanket fort or some such, and enjoy the following four hours of true mayhem.

Lianne La Havas • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #319

Welcome, welcome, welcome to EPISODE 319 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A beautiful chat this week with the truly wonderful singer songwriter LIANNE LA HAVAS!This one was recorded pre-apocalypse so it was a real life face to face interaction (seriously, do you remember those…?), and as such I think you’ll really enjoy this even more than usual as Pip and Lianne get along great, and that’s been a true strength of the Distraction Pieces Podcast - the face to face element of it all. Well, while that may temporarily alter here and there, the fact of the matter is that Lianne is a beautiful presence and it’s a joy to hear her talk about her experiences in the music game, along with the wisdom she’s gained along the way. Everything from being on a label as opposed to being indie, the weird stage between writing and performing, emotions and process behind the record, unconventional family setups, being a shy kid and keeping her skills behind closed doors for a good chunk of her childhood years, being raised by her Jamaican grandparents as well as her education and interests, oh and also - I mean take this with a grain of salt and act all aloof or whatever but she was also really good mates with Prince. I mean, like, whatever. Y’know. Of course if there was a font colour for sarcasm the last couple of sentences would be glowing right now. MADNESS.

Isolation Recommendations • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #318

Welcome, welcome, welcome to EPISODE 318 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! From the Speech Development Compounds, this is Scroobius Pip’s Isolation Recommendations!Okay - just to first note, those exclamation points are not there to in any way make light of the current situation. But I tried it without them and it just seemed really solemn so I hope you don’t mind my editorial decision. Anyway - details aside - all of us at the Distraction Pieces labs (which is conveniently entirely remote) wish you the very best, and all the positivity and sanity you can handle. It’s difficult for all of us, and the whole situation is a true bastard, to put it about as mildly as one can without getting into expletives. But we must try and find and go in on any positives we can, and thankfully, mercifully, there are a great many out there - hopefully most of which you’ll be able to enjoy from your bunkers, wherever you find yourselves. So here is a full length collection of entertainment that fits in perfectly with the name of the podcast. Distraction Pieces. Enjoy, bring em up on Whatsapp and phone conversations, have fun. And stay safe as you possibly can.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to EPISODE 317 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Following on from last week’s multi-disciplined guest, Pip is joined this week by emcee turned actor ASHLEY WALTERS!Okay - in case you don’t recognise that name right there immediately, let’s bring you up to speed. ASHER D FROM SO SOLID. Ring a bell? DUSHANE FROM TOP BOY! Getting through yet? RICKY FROM BULLETPROOF? Don’t make me get all Biff from Back To The Future and knock on your head to make sure you’re on the same page… Anyway - it’s Ashley Walters! A fascinating chat and as with a lot of Distraction Pieces episodes, one that feels like it’s been on the cards for a minute. The two get down to it and cover it all from getting in shape and being more mindful re: bodies, representation and the path to Bulletproof, working with Noel Clarke and becoming his pal, working with Carol Jackson from Eastenders (sorry, Lindsey Coulson), being multi-disciplined from a young age, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, time spent in prison and lessons learned on release, Top Boy, So Solid, all that good stuff and TOO MUCH to fit into a write up here.

Cosmo Jarvis • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #316

Welcome, welcome, welcome to EPISODE 316 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Some acting and musical glory for you this week as Pip is joined by the brilliant COSMO JARVIS!Following on perfectly from last week’s episode with Niamh Algar, in that she and Cosmo star in ‘Calm With Horses’, which is coming to cinemas very soon - the perfect follow on episode right here! You may know Cosmo from his starring turns in Lady Macbeth, or maybe Peaky Blinders - his presence leaves a long lasting impression in whatever you will see him in, and it’s a treat to hear him talk about the craft and hear his insights into it, especially when mirrored with Pip’s. So kicking things off with some good pizza chat up-top, we lead effortlessly into his dealings with type 1 diabetes, which blossoms into the power of encouragement and learning on the job, life changing moments which somehow don’t change life, the ease of dipping your toe into the creative output pool and whether it’s a good thing or not, indeed the forthcoming Calm With Horses, and loads of respectful talk about his co-stars and actors / directors he’s worked with. Excellent stuff, great to hear from him!EPISODE LINKS:COSMO on IMDBCOSMO in THE GUARDIANCOSMO on YOUTUBELINKS FOR SCROOBIUS PIP & SPEECH DEVELOPMENT:SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTERSCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAMSCROOBIUS PIP on PATREONPOD BIBLESPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS DISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOKDISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAMDISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST ARCHIVE Hosted on Acast.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to EPISODE 315 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! This week Pip is joined by the pure marvellous actor and delight NIAMH ALGAR!You can tell even like 5 minutes in that Pip was proper excited about this one… And naturally he was right to be, as Niamh is fantastic if you didn’t already know! You may have seen her in the beautiful and powerful ‘The Virtues’ alongside Distraction Pieces spiritual godfather Stephen Graham, and if you did you will adore this chat as Niamh goes IN on the whole process. As always, any Shane Meadows talk is fascinating and this time is no exception, as we get the pure goodness and intrigue from the process of making such a show and the deep personal digging involved in Niamh’s transformation into Dinah. Not only that, there’s further confirmation of that ‘being the lead in your own story’ point that comes up here and there on the podcast, and some good chat about her role in Desiree Akhavan’s ‘The Bisexual’, working with Guy Ritchie and OF COURSE a good amount about her upcoming film ‘Calm With Horses’, alongside Barry Keoghan and Cosmo Jarvis. Full on gold.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to EPISODE 314 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! This week Pip is joined by the fantastic in every way comedian, writer and actor MAE MARTIN!A tremendous meetup of Pip and Mae, and dare I say a long overdue one at that… You’ll get to hear all about Mae in the greater scale and sense, from back in the day to… now… in the day…? Yeah that sounds fine to me… But yeah, everything from then to now, including what she is doing THIS VERY MOMENT, and by that of course I mean starring in the simultaneously hilariously funny and brutally honest Feel Good (well, coming in March), which looks set to blow up worldwide. So expect to hear it all from how to view the series (best served binged), the weirdness of editing trailers, getting the correct audience, Canada (Oh Canada), the process of getting a set together, Mae the character and Mae the person, sex scenes and writing a proudly LGBT show, humanising addition, the casting process, digging deep into personal history and the transition from Canada to London but SO MUCH MORE of course.

Well dear listener you must check yourself before an inevitable wrecking of one’s self and go listen immediately! Okay let’s all slow down… Start here and THEN go find it, as you will most definitely become a fast friend of Rich’s by the end of the chat. Rich is a loveable and very down to earth, honest guy who is out for goodness and wellbeing among all people, and it’s a pleasure to hear he and Pip catch up and talk about the good and bad of life in equal measure. A balance is reached, and there is very much a yin and yang feel throughout - from Brexit, to remembering to appreciate the luck of being a standup, to being a straight white male, living with a comedian and the dynamics involved, remakes of films, social media (where to even start on that one!), his early Fringe days in Edinburgh and learning from mistakes, honesty, inclusion of stories into his act, his own podcast and setup and how he got into it and his current show in Soho!

Welcome, welcome, welcome to EPISODE 312 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! This week Pip is joined by comedic musician and actor and man of many pseudonyms, GRAHAM FELLOWS!Of course, one of the many said pseudonyms which you will surely know is John Shuttleworth, but you might be familiar with Jilted John, Brian Appleton and David Tordoff. At any rate, this is a fascinating conversation involving the creative process, workflow and inspiration which will appeal to anyone remotely interested in making awesome things. I’m sure this means YOU reading this! Having met Pip a while back in a cupboard (all will be revealed), they have a lot to catch up on and have secured a more roomy location for their chat this time round and what a chat it is… Graham has such an array of wisdom-filled nuggets at his disposal, and some evergreen advice and science for those who’ve been creating for years or are about to begin. From the ‘young man’s game’ of performing, to Fringe thoughts, being squeaky clean, his origins, “turkey tapes”, Sheffield, musical equipment, the Custard Cream diamond and SO much more.

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.

Beginning with the recording of his Speech Development Records album ‘At Home With Rob’, the two get into everything including the difference between live and home performance, the weird alchemy of performance and presence, same setlist / different crowd, the ‘Takeshi’s Castle’ of getting it right, “to EX-press and not to IM-press”, the process of creating his themed shows, the absurdity but wonder of life and retaining a childlike fascination of it all, not lying, purity of thought, doing good in society and the world, self improvement and the knock-on effects thereof, science and religion and of course his own podcast!

The Safdie Brothers • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #307

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 307 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A true cinematic treat for you this week as Pip is joined by directing siblings THE SAFDIE BROTHERS!You may know them from the fantastic ‘Good Time’ (featuring a tightly wound Robert Pattinson), or maybe ‘Heaven Knows What’, but for sure you will be seeing much more of them with their new Netflix / cinema joint and Adam Sandler-starring ‘Uncut Gems’! Pip is a confirmed fan of course, and caught up with them on a very swift whirlwind run in London to talk all things film, from the time taken to get to this stage with the film, seeing the effect of it on an audience (especially comedically), the casting of Adam Sandler, the importance of voices, the use of extras in a far more involved sense, British acting and the realism of it, casting real people, working with musicians, using New York as a character, their intense focus on character even down to auditioning actors for one line appearances, and the sonic world of a film including the ‘Atmos’ mix which they go into. Amazing - proper film nerd’s one here and you’re not one, you might well be by the end.

Karl Pilkington • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #306

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 306 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! WELCOME TO 2020 OFFICIALLY! You were cordially welcomed of course on New Year’s Day, but this feels like the first kind of ‘official’ episode of the decade. We all at Distraction Pieces Heights wish you nothing but the very best for the year ahead. Now let’s get it off to a proper start with the first guest of the year - it’s the uniquely great KARL PILKINGTON!While some see Karl as the grumpy one of the original podcast trio consisting of him, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, as you will hear in this podcast right here - it wasn’t necessarily grumpiness. Nor was it disinterest. Karl was looking through the world through a different prism, and certainly a prism of which we should all have a go at experiencing. It’s really nice hearing him get around ideas at leisure and with Pip (and us) as a sounding board, and definitely a really cool way of sharing the worldview of one of the more fascinating characters in the cast of podcasts, series and media in general. The two get into it all, from the origins of podcasting (kind of beginning with the Gervais one of course), to his thoughts on the promo run, to confidence, last minute tinkering, being a fan of real life and the fine line between that and comedy, ponderings on having children, the XFM days, being rubbed the wrong way by Ricky, his genuine curiosity, working on Derek, people being over familiar and a charming spider story to round it off. Brilliant.

Whatever happens, it's a great ride and you'll hear all kinds of interesting points of view.

Yoni Wolf • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #303

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 303 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! In a world where genres are so slippery and tricksy and hard to pin down, Anticon was a label in the hip hop realm which routinely defied definition. This week Pip sits down with one of the original crew members to chop it up about the good old days, as well as the present and the future - ladies and gentlemen, this week’s guest is YONI WOLF (aka WHY? - band and solo)!Pip and Yoni share many mutual friends, influences and interests, and it seems mad that the two haven’t gotten together in the podcast huddle and recorded a chat before. Well - let history be righted as they finally crowbar in some good jibber jabber time to reflect on all sort of necessary goodness, including mic control, Pip’s relationship with the first cLOUDDEAD album (the group comprised of Why, Doseone and Odd Nosdam), the exclusivity of hip hop and the rap milieu of the time, the rest of the Anticon crew including the truly unfortunate passing of Alias, touring and the delights and non-delights thereof, his father’s messianic preaching and how he unknowingly introduced Yoni to rapping, his relationship to labelmate and mate-mate Doseone (who actually battled Eminem in the past - I kid you not), dealing with crohns and health issues, veganism, touring under three different presidents, his own podcast ‘The Wandering Wolf’, Meteor Festival and the controversies that surrounded it and rounded off with some ever resonant mental health talk. Beautiful - whether you know Anticon or Why’s music or not, this will give you some real wisdom.

Kevin Smith • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #302

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 302 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Two podcast forces meet and interlock their powers this week as Pip is joined by seasoned podcaster himself - not to mention film director / writer / actor and SO much more… It’s Kevin Smith!“I play the game like I’m trying to save the universe…”SNOOCHIE BOOCHIES! What a joy this is… While it is a slightly shorter episode, Pip could hardly turn Kevin down now could he…? Exactly. Unthinkable. So sit back and enjoy as Kevin essentially takes the reins with this one! It was expected though, as Kevin has basically found his true North by way of talking and telling stories for a living these days. But that’s not to say he’s thrown in the towel on films - oh good god no, as you will surely be aware of by the fact that his Jay & Silent Bob Reboot film is out and about and making much noise in the View Askew-niverse. This here is a chance to hear all about that, and the past hits in the Smith catalogue, as well as a gang of talking points including his gratefulness for being able to express himself for a living, the difference between making podcasts and movies, the younger Smith laying the foundations for later on, the power of the Q&A, brushes with death, and tons more but all held together with a true understanding of what he means to his fanbase and the importance of his products.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 301 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! The one that more than a few of you have been waiting for right here… Not to mention Pip… Yes indeed - this week’s guest is the phenomenally prolific and downright awesome author NEIL GAIMAN!“...Comics are a medium that is mistaken for a genre...”To even use the word ‘author’ risks belittling the wealth of work that Neil’s been involved in, but let’s just say the list of work goes back a good long way. His career is coming up on around 40 years, and on this chat you’ll hear about a huge amount of it. This includes the wisdom accrued along the way, lessons learned and notes made, ranging across the board and including finding his writing process, moving around artistically, Good Omens, Dr Who, working with DC and the Sandman comic, Neverwhere, the things that can get missed through the journey from writer to production, give and take behind the scenes, the holy trinity of Peter Sellers, David Tenant and Michael Sheen, the 90’s comic bubble, and being a parental unit with Amanda Palmer!

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode THREE HUNDRED of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! The Gerard Butler edition! We made it! Well, zero chances of Gerard sightings here, as Pip is joined this week by a mildly abbreviated by nonetheless great chat with the truly excellent director PAUL FEIG!With his new film ‘Last Christmas’ on the horizon, now is the perfect time to catch Paul, and Pip does just that, managing to pick him up on all things directorial and cinematic philosophy. Beginning with the importance of eye contact in an interview, they get cracking on it all - the film in question (‘Last Christmas’), his old Xmas film ‘Grounded’, the perennial success carrot to chase in a Xmas film, whether or not you can have too much fun on set, whether or not moments are funny in front of a crowd, fatal flaws and runaway trains, finding intimacy in London, well rounded characters and not just mindless representation, aiming for a perfect cast, getting along with said cast, film vs TV, the need for honesty behind the scenes, relating to women and a whole lot more in not a huge amount of time… Also some extrapolated thoughts up top from Pip about a point hinted at near the end - all will make sense! It’s a goody, and definitely a conversation starter I would say. Enjoy!

Pure broadcasting brilliance for you this week, as Pip is joined by TV and radio presenter and all round delight FEARNE COTTON!This is the mirror side of a two podcast deal the two of them struck up, where Pip appeared on her ‘Happy Place’ podcast, so as you’ll witness, the driver is often interchangeable, but it’s all perfect as they get on just grand. Maybe it’s because they were born a month apart and have the same cultural touchstones - WHO KNOWS! Whatever the case, it’s a breeze of a podcast which touches on so much including a sentence which features Hanson and Led Zeppelin in the same breath (in fact I think it could be called an “Mmm Bop-cast” but that’s of no consequence), her intro into different kinds of music, being mates with Sarah Cawood and how she eventually got into gig going through her, Coldplay haters, the power of music shared on a mass scale, cathartic crying sessions, early days of her presenting on TV and growing up in front of the camera, presenting the Disney Club, still being treated as a kid in adult life, the old fashioned kid poop story which serves as a grounding device, how being a cool parent isn’t possible, her book ‘Happy’, losing her sense of self in her 20’s and regaining it later, social media, podcast therapy, changing one’s self in the midst of crisis and her work with CoppaFeel. But of course, SO much more. Lovely stuff from start to end.

Daisy Haggard • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #294

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 292 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A real treat this week by way of writer and actor heavyweight DAISY HAGGARD!A proper nice chat right here is your gift, as Pip is joined by the writer of and actor in Back To Life and a whole bunch more (including a voice stint in a Harry Potter film - the key to knowing if someone has just skimmed her IMDB page!), and they have a grand old time getting down to the business of acting, film, cinema, movie, the whole bit. From pitching the series Back To Life (involving pub antics), to her reaction to feedback in general, the importance of collaborators, the memorable moment she got the call to say the show was being picked up, the whirlwind LA journey within a journey to promote said show, the balance of work and life, her dad being in cult horror classic Blood On Satan’s Claw, Man Stroke Woman, Breeders and all that’s to come!

Stamma special • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #293

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 293 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! As you may know, Pip is a patron of the Stamma organisation, and this week’s bonus Monday episode is a Stamma special!He is joined by three guests, each having their own individual chat sections with Pip. The guests are George, Owen and Natalie, each stammerers in their own right, and Pip gets into their stories beginning with what they do, and getting slowly into the deeper stories… It’s fascinating to hear everyone relating their relationships with stammers and stutters, which involves their early memories of dealing with it, peoples’ reactions to it and how they were made to realise they were different whether they liked it or not. There are many common factors as you will hear, and really one of the main takeaways is that people would do well to exercise patience when talking to those with stammers. But it’s great to hear every individual chat and what is unveiled - a really interesting insight into the world of stammering, stuttering and the Stamma organisation as a whole.EPISODE LINKS:• STAMMA on TWITTER• STAMMA on THE INTERNET• STAMMA on FACEBOOK• STAMMA on YOUTUBE• STAMMA on INSTAGRAMTHIS EPISODES SPIRIT ANIMALS:• DPP #200 • Jess Thom (Tourettes Hero)• DPP #284 • Joseph GilgunLINKS 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• NEW LISTENERS TAKE NOTE • You can find the full DISTRACTION PIECES episode list HERE!

Bill Bailey • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #292

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 292 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A long awaited chat is your gift this week as Pip is joined by music, comedy and acting treasure BILL BAILEY!With Bill’s new appreciation of the early morning start, and enjoying those gems that are the early hours of the day, he joins Pip for some ace earlier-than-afternoon chattalogical goodness which includes so much, from back in the day to… now in the day? You know what I’m getting at. So you can absolutely expect to hear all manner of awesome including how he’s well up for the promo run, with a renewed appreciation for the talking element of it all, his newfound discipline - or that is to say ‘sharpened’ discipline, the new series of ‘In The Long Run’ in which he stars alongside creator Idris Elba (on Sky NOW!), his approach to the series and he tries not to install his own comic leanings on the proceedings, the ‘biomechanics’ of comedy and the District 9 theory, the importance of collaboration, how awesome Idris Elba is, the shock of coming from the mainly white Westcountry to multicultural London, Bill’s lightbulb moment for comedy at a London vegan anarchist commune, influences and respect for tradition, the DVD boom of the 00’s and how he got caught in it, the great equaliser of a shared artistic experience, and with that - the importance of sharing, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and QI and all kinds more! Lovely stuff, start to end.

Ricky Wilson (Kaiser Chiefs) • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #291

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 291 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Nothing but pure musical glory this week as Pip is joined for a proper chat with lead singer of Kaiser Chiefs RICKY WILSON!“We’ve never written songs that tell people what to do… We don’t write commands…”…which is interesting as right here we have Thou Shalt Always Kill sitting opposite I Predict A Riot! It is ON from the moment they step in the room, moving deftly through the sheer madness of social media, onward through to his life being a combo of jets and jigsaws, he and Pip meeting at a Mark Ronson party and the weirdness of all of that, the downward spiral of extended hotel room living (and tipping in Pumas), not stopping to acknowledge victories and glories along the way, taking a year off, “Envy is the religion of the mediocre” - and all that entails, the ubiquitous imposter syndrome, not jumping the shark as a band, horses for courses vs horses f*ck horses, being on The Voice and navigating that with useful mind-hacks, the Bill Nighy trap, living in bubbles, critics, the lost beauty of the walkup at gigs, and altogether SO much more. Now all we have to do is wait while he and Pip record an album and release it as The Removal Men - then the circle shall finally be unbroken.

Jack Sexsmith (part 2/2) • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #290

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 290 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Part 2 of an extensive 2 parter here for you with the wrestling phenomenon JACK SEXSMITH!To quote Curtis Mayfield, “Can I get a bit deeper…?” - and part 2 of this full on chat with Jack is the perfect example of where a chat gets that little bit deeper, so be prepared for some honesty, truth and observation on all things wrestling. But as Pip mentions at the start and end and at points on the last episode, we can all get along wherever we stand on the wrestling scale. Dividing factions will come into play under whatever the unifying umbrella is, and wrestling isn’t immune to it, but everyone can definitely stand together within it. Anyway - as promised, this is a proper goody and the ideal accompaniment to part 1. Jack goes in on his merch game, regrets, acceptance and different worlds of sexuality, the piece in The Sun, the current state of British Wrestling, Jimmy Havoc, adventures in indie wrestling, his WWE tryout and tricky politics of big companies, divisions within fan universes, and a healthy dose of potentially controversial wrestling scientificial nuggets. The perfect roundup to a proper action packed two parter.EPISODE LINKS:• JACK on TWITTER• JACK vs DAVID STARR @ RIPTIDE• JACK on LAST WORD ON PRO WRESTLING• JACK on DEFIANT WRESTLING FANDOMTHIS EPISODES SPIRIT ANIMALS:• DPP #222 • Why I Love Wrestling (Roundtable)• DPP #186 • We Need To Talk About WrestlingLINKS 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• NEW LISTENERS TAKE NOTE • You can find the full DISTRACTION PIECES episode list HERE!

Jack Sexsmith (part 1/2) • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #290

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 290 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Part 1 of an extensive 2 parter here for you with the wrestling phenomenon JACK SEXSMITH!“I’ll be the sex guy, then…”So much to talk about that Pip and Jack went in for almost two hours on this one! As you’ll hear, two hours barely even scratches the surface as there is just so much ground to cover… They begin at the end, Memento style, with Jack’s recent injury which resulted in his retirement, and so you will hear everything around that and what led up to it. A lot to get through in this first part, but it includes nom de plumes and pseudonyms, setting the scene of his career changing injury, working hurt all the time, Rip Tide, making amends with the occasionally troubling past of wrestling, his teen years as a devout Christian, his years in the Progress dojo (aka ProJo), meeting Edward Dennis and Sebastian, his brushes with a very different wrestling name altogether, how he indeed got his name (the story may surprise you), “Sexually frivolous, morally ambiguous”, his LGBTQ connections and lifestyles and all that entails, effecting change through character, winning over crowds with comedy, the joy of battle raps, and the eventual move to super strong style. How much more than that? TONS. You’ll see. Too much to just skim over here - go in and enjoy!EPISODE LINKS:• JACK on TWITTER• JACK vs DAVID STARR @ RIPTIDE• JACK on LAST WORD ON PRO WRESTLING• JACK on DEFIANT WRESTLING FANDOMTHIS EPISODES SPIRIT ANIMALS:• DPP #222 • Why I Love Wrestling (Roundtable)• DPP #186 • We Need To Talk About WrestlingLINKS 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• NEW LISTENERS TAKE NOTE • You can find the full DISTRACTION PIECES episode list HERE!

Louis Theroux • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #289

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 289 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A long awaited full length conversation this week with all time favourite documentarian and author LOUIS THEROUX!The conversation starts right up top with pseudonyms and nom-de-plumes the moment Louis joins Pip, and things don’t let up from there - Pip and Louis cover much ground in an hour which slips by gently and easily, covering Louis’ love of golden age hip hop and early wishes to be a rapper, the early days of being mates with Adam Buxton and Joe Cornish and trading tapes with Buckles, Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci and Welsh prog, listening to podcasts on his bike, his ‘curiosity before judgment’ approach, appearing a couple of time on the Joe Rogan podcast and how that was in retrospect, being less tolerant of nonsense these days, family life and focus, getting involved with the subjects on his old shows, his early days at TV Nation, asking the obvious questions, differences and benefits of working with a crew or solo, the fallout of the infamous Jimmy Saville episode, the existential byproduct of writing, that glorious episode of the Adam Buxton podcast and generally seeing friends doing well.

Kano • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #288

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 288 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A powerful get together this week as Pip sits down with rapper actor kingpin KANO!A really fun and engaging sit-down with the two, as Pip catches Kano in the midst of a promo run which leads us nicely into the whole thing - from the cycle beginning and ending (and then beginning again), his time served at the notorious Deja Vu station back in the day, teaming up with Mike Skinner and the inspiration Mike had on his live shows (along with dancehall culture in Jamaica), his brother getting him into DJing and emceeing, roots beyond grime, not being scared of ‘off’ days, getting in the zone in the studio, being tuned into society and understanding the mechanics of it, speaking truth to power, addressing problems on wax, conversations through music, importance of sport and non musical activities, being in a computer game, going HAM on his fourth callback for Top Boy, practice making perfect and rehearsing for his Royal Albert Hall show!

Frank Turner • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #287

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 287 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! What a treat this week, as Pip is joined for the triumphant return of the UK’s folk punk legend FRANK TURNER!…and about time too, as it’s been over 250 episodes since they last had a proper chat! As you can hear, the gap immediately disappears as they pick up effortlessly and gain quick ground about what’s been happening in their lives in the interim. Expect to hear all about the Frank Turner years, moving with ease through such topics as the parallels of touring and wedding organisation, the effects of extensive touring on a person’s life, the blowout cycle and mental health, tour PTSD and habit forming, the perils of talking about fame while being very self aware, cultural satnav and tour hacks, “grebos”, the plus side of the internet in terms of hunting for music, gateway bands, festival thoughts, the punk and non-punk ethos of opening for anyone, and most importantly - his 8TH SOLO ALBUM! With that comes his newfound respect for podcasters, the issue of a man writing about women and then where the path goes from here. PACKED AND AWESOME is what it is.

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 286 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A grand chat this week with standup comic, show host and mate of Guz Khan, it’s TEZ ILYAS!“let them come on the journey...”Hitting on many angles this week of all things comedy, shows, politics, geography and race, Pip and Tez go full on at all this and more from the comfort of a hotel room. I wonder how many hotel rooms are being used as makeshift podcast studios right now… Anyway - awesome stuff as Tez drops science upon so much - Guz’s ‘Man Like Mobeen’, his own ‘Tez O’ Clock’ show, Fringe experiences be they good or bad, hitting it off with Pip on Twitter (the platform upon which they both go IN on later on in the podcast!), being a very proficient dancer, the immigrant mentality, being exposed to middle class white Britain, reading ahead of his level but plateauing, joining a standup comedy course, developing those comedy chops over time, letting people make the leap with references and the art of relatability, his stint in the home office, wokeness and politics, achievement trumping politics in the Asian community, his friendship with Guz and working relationship, the importance of finding good people to work with and the camaraderie that is needed, and whether it’s possible to develop a pro-Brexit monologue for his own show!

And boy howdy do Pip and Joe get into it all… From his appearances on the brilliant Two Shot Podcast, to his own dealing with bipolar (including the importance of having characters who deal with the condition but not as their only character asset), not being the condition you have, working with the powerful Shane Meadows and the many actors under his expansive wings, his bipolar purchase decisions (including parrots and many, many pairs of trainers), living in a derelict house in the woods, social media and its many pitfalls including reasons for him to not use it, all his acting work from Corrie to Brassic and all in between, the lush countryside of the Midlands, being a ‘tall poppy’ - the one who isn’t allowed to get above his station back in the days, learning words through context clues, learning the hard way with a strict teacher, the freedom of taking ideas to Sky, and dealing with memory problems.

Not only a gaming festival host, he’s done his time outside the ring but also inside the ring, and has an all rounder knowledge that puts him in a perfect position to take the reigns of something so specifically wrestling focused. From his 48,000 hours on Football Manager 2010, to online UFC and wrestling, to fighting and the narratives attached, to Progress and Jim Smallman, to the role as a fan of MMA, to his deep knowledge and understanding of wrestling, how luck and hard work are not mutually exclusive, how the roots of Tuesday Night Jaw are in positivity, NXT UK controversies and happiness, fulfilment and gratefulness. So much to enjoy.Pip outro notes: More on wrestling / WWE 205 Live / Full Sail / NXT UK / Jim Smallman’s next path / Jack SexsmithEPISODE LINKS:• MATT on TWITTER• TUESDAY NIGHT JAW• HARDEST PART OF THE JAW - details here!THIS EPISODES SPIRIT ANIMALS:• DPP #83 • Jim Smallman of PROGRESS• DPP #119 • Jack GallagherLINKS 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• NEW LISTENERS TAKE NOTE • You can find the full DISTRACTION PIECES episode list HERE!

Cariad Lloyd • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #280

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 280 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A beautiful talk this week about a subject which is still a tough one to talk openly about - well, thankfully Pip is joined by a true veteran podcaster on that very subject (as well as being a hilarious comedian, improviser and actor!) - it’s CARIAD LLOYD!Whether you’ve listened to Cariad’s ‘Griefcast’ podcast or not (if not, please do!), there’s a very, very high possibility that you’ve had an experience with death somewhere in your life. Everyone deals with it differently and it’s entirely unique to everyone, no matter who it involves, but the important fact to remember is that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. This is something Cariad reinforces throughout the chat with Pip, and it’s so important to remember, as our brains will have us thinking we’re on our own and have to withdraw from the world to repair. It’s a fascinating chat, as she and Pip go on a voyage - in very upbeat and positive fashion - through the death zone, which leads into topics such as the creation of an environment for a podcast talking about death, the lunacy of ‘@‘ing someone, being in a position to help but not as an expert, the mechanics of grief as well the very personal nature of it, Cariad’s own run-ins with death in her life, how death and grief are confined to the ‘sad room’, the afterlife and the weirdness that entails and the spirituality of atheism. It’s excellent and potentially a much needed talk for some people out there - you really are not alone. One to really sit with, here.HELP IS AT HAND. If you need a hand with anything grief related, know that help is out there.

Greg Jenner • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #279

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 279 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! One for the history heads and non-history heads alike right here as Pip sits down with Horrible Histories own (and more!), GREG JENNER!“We’re basically trying to inspire a love for history…”Name a more iconic public historian… I’ll wait……couldn’t resist, sorry! I mean he most certainly is a fully realised public historian (not, as autocorrect would have it, a ‘pubic’ historian), but so much more besides as you are about to find out in this very episode. It’s another one of those ‘long time coming’ episodes too, where Pip’s been lining everything up so the going’s good but with the forthcoming Horrible Histories film out on Friday 26th, the timing seems perfect! So of course this episode has a GOOD amount of chat about the film itself including cast, tone, all of that goodness you would expect, he and Pip also get down to business on being ‘edutaining’ on Twitter, being behind the scenes in the writers room, said ‘public historian’ status, developing a new genre known as ‘factual sketch comedy’, how history and entertainment don’t have to be mutually exclusive, smuggling in history through references and humour, relatable parallels in history to modern celebrity and also the cult of celebrity and ‘parasocial interractions’ (very much a part of social media), his ‘Dead Famous’ book, the speedy pool of knowledge that is Twitter, being a historical advisor, how historical drama can either be a comfort or a contrast to current times, and of course - Taboo! Super great, and definitely something to spark, rekindle or further fuel a love of history you surely have…Pip outro notes: stamma.org and Pip’s patron activities / last week’s episode with Konnie Huq / WeAreLizards THIS SATURDAY @ Book Club, LDNEPISODE LINKS:• GREG on TWITTER• HORRIBLE HISTORIES• HORRIBLE HISTORIES movie• GREG ONLINETHIS EPISODES SPIRIT ANIMALS:• DPP #6 • Simon Singh• DPP #65 • AkalaLINKS FOR SCROOBIUS PIP & SPEECH DEVELOPMENT:• SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTER!• SCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAM!• SCROOBIUS PIP on PATREON!• POD BIBLE!• STAMMA.ORG• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS • DISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on FACEBOOK• DISTRACTION PIECES NETWORK on INSTAGRAM• Hosted on Acast.

Konnie Huq • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #278

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 278 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A proper brilliant one for you this week, as Pip is joined by the truly ace presenter, writer and podcaster KONNIE HUQ!The weather conditions at the time of podcasting (monsoon season) seem to make for a perfect sit down and chat session with Pip and Konnie, as the two hunker down and address a whole gang of pertinent issues and situations - which starts quite literally moments into the conversation. This all sets the tone for some extremely entertaining and very mind opening topic tackling, which includes such menu items as the smoking ban and how we all adapted, the issue of stuff and things and the accumulation of possessions, moving house to a shoebox (with kid in tow), social media and the multitude of attitudes towards it (including where they stand on it all), the idea of manners on social media and how people conduct themselves, minorities, sexual preference, change and evolution in society, being the first Bangladeshi presenter of Blue Peter, slow progression, the bullshit filter of being a parent, the importance of nomalising inclusivity, pasta tangents and of COURSE, her own podcast ‘Switch Off’ and forthcoming book ‘Cookie And The Most Annoying Boy In The World’! SO MUCH GOODNESS.

Inua Ellams • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #277

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 277 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A true powerhouse of an episode this week as Pip catches up with an old pal from the spoken word and poetry scene who has an incredible tale or two to tell, it’s INUA ELLAMS!“I’ve always existed in the grey areas, I’ve always been between countries, always been between cultures...”You’d be well advised to either listen a few times or just keep a pen and paper by your side, as there are a LOT of gems and quotables in this one! An amazing chat with Inua, as he and Pip get acquainted again for the first time in around a decade. Inua’s tale is not only fascinating from start to present point, but you also get the benefit of milestones of wisdom from the man himself as he is now able to draw conclusions, extract lessons and offer context to the situations in which he found himself. From his beginnings in Nigeria and his subsequent journey out of there (which involves his father and a story worthy of a film premise), to his movements to Ireland and growing up in the more deprived areas, to being introduced to Saul Williams via a mysterious CDR, to his entry into poetry through not having enough money to paint (but a need for manual creativity), the Nigerian attitude and work ethic combined with an immigrant perspective (‘get up and go’ mixed with ‘nothing to lose’), being taught poetry by a basketball teacher, rewriting Romeo & Juliet, leaving home and passport woes, the power of trust, throwing rap parties and SO much more including - of course - his new play ‘The Barbershop Chronicles’ and what you can expect! So much in here. You’ll dig it without question.Pip outro notes: Ruminations on PR people hitting him up about pals / press junkets and fighting through the barrier / Stormzy @ Glasto / WeAreLizards @ Book Club on the 27th July / Pip’s birthday plans / PodbibleEPISODE LINKS:• THE BARBERSHOP CHRONICLES• INUA on TWITTER• THE HALF GOD OF RAINFALL• INUA onlineTHIS EPISODES SPIRIT ANIMALS:• DPP #227 • Kate Tempest• DPP #84 • Saul WilliamsLINKS FOR SCROOBIUS PIP & SPEECH DEVELOPMENT:• SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTER!• SCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAM!• SCROOBIUS PIP on PATREON!• POD BIBLE!• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS • Hosted on Acast.

Danny Boyle • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #276

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 276 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! In continuing with Pip’s stellar lineup of screenwriting and directing heavy hitters, he is joined this week by none other than the great DANNY BOYLE!Of course, you already know Danny through his past crowning glories including Trainspotting, T2, 28 Days Later, Slumdog Millionaire, and a good large handful of other classics. So as far as introductions go, you know who you’re here for! Danny is out and about right now putting in the good work in support of his new film ‘Yesterday’, which presents a world in which the Beatles don’t exist. It’s a premise which poses question upon question and kind of demands your viewing time, and you’ll hear all about it here, including the sheer importance of the band, the goal of fame in today’s world, how important rehearsal is (VERY!), the mechanics of recording on set and how live recordings were achieved, finding the right lead in Himesh Patel, the balance of melancholy and joy in the Beatles’ music, representation and deepening the talent pool which dovetails nicely into how the Beatles wouldn’t play segregated crowds, and the importance in soundtrack in a Danny Boyle film which is none more resonant than in this film right here! Greatness. Your troubles will seem so far away after this one, folks.EPISODE LINKS:• YESTERDAY on TWITTER• HIMESH PATEL on TWITTER• YESTERDAY film• DANNY BOYLE IMDBTHIS EPISODES SPIRIT ANIMALS:• DPP #275 • Charlie Brooker• DPP #274 • Jed MercurioLINKS 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• NEW LISTENERS TAKE NOTE • You can find the full DISTRACTION PIECES episode list HERE!

Charlie Brooker • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #275

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 275 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A very long awaited and very highly requested guest right here, as Pip is joined by the creator of Black Mirror and so much more - it’s CHARLIE BROOKER!…but don’t by any means think that Black Mirror is a one man show, as Charlie himself will ensure you know how important Annabel Jones is in the whole creative process! He and Pip get all the way into the whole Black Mirror phenomenon, how it works and what it is to be a showrunner, the rise of Black Mirror in the US, how Charlie is the Drake of TV according to Pip (you’ll enjoy this theory), how the auteur theory is bullshit, presenting the show to Netflix, having an exit strategy in a series and how there are less exits in a film as opposed to an episode, Bandersnatch and the three episode season, his older work including Dead Set, Nathan Barley and the various ‘-Wipes, his Screen Burn column and how haters could improve their hater game by reading some of his columns for how to REALLY dis someone…* Production note: Pip had a backup recorder running, and you’ll hear some of this at the start for a minute or so, but after that the audio is straight from the mics.

If the answer to one or more of these questions is YES then you are in for a pure treat, as Pip is joined this week by writer / director / showrunner JED MERCURIO!An immensely packed and awesome episode for fans of said shows as well as those unfamiliar, or what you could call ‘pre-fans’, as Jed goes in awfully deep into the backgrounds of both of them, as well his previous show ‘Bodies’. It’s all covered, including the slow build of his shows, the commissioning process, the ranking of seasons, being out of sync with friends in bingeing box-sets, his medical background and how it led to his work on Bodies, the rules of TV land, the mechanics of working behind the scenes, media reporting on medical accidents, the difference between negligence and error, what it is to be a showrunner (thanks for breaking that down Jed, as I don’t think anyone has done that yet!!), and challenging critical opinion while championing fact.

Mark Grist & Ross Sutherland • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #273

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 272 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A double guest lineup for your poetry, rapping and battling requirements as Pip is joined by MARK GRIST and ROSS SUTHERLAND!Chances are you already know these fellas already, be it through the battle scene, the poetry scene or maybe even as a video someone shared with you depicting a suited teacher battling a student (that’ll be Mark!), or indeed the time when Pip battled him - well, whatever the weather, you are about to become infinitely further acquainted with the two as Pip sits down with them to get all the background goods and how they started, progressed and evolved in their chosen lanes. The ground covered is vast, including Mark’s infamous Blizzard battle and how people misrepresented his opponent, the camaraderie of battlers and the vibrancy of the scene itself,
