Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 220 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, please recharge your drinks and ensure you have a party popper ready - it’s Pip’s birthday and we are gonna do it UP this episode!
Please join Pip and old mate Brett Goldstein (Superbob! Corner Boys! Films To Be Buried With podcast!) as they go IN on the Scroobius Pips (the only cocktail worth celebrating with at this time of year) and toast the big day properly, after being joined briefly by Pip’s mum very early on for some science on the postal service (not the band - the actual thing itself, her involvement with the ‘U3A’ (Cult or not cult? You decide!). Topics include how people can be insanely productive with a full family, bigging up mates, Brett’s film Superbob and the complexities within, cinema vs the small screen, how laughter is very hard to act, Brett’s experiences in the world of podcasting which he has recently gotten involved with (‘Films To Be Buried With is out NOW - links below), what it’s like for Brett on the other side of the mic, pilot season and just what it is, wanting US roles but being conflicted with the politics, and awards and the reality of them, what they mean and all that good stuff.
Oh lord it’s a packed one - so please, pour a rhubarb infused gin of your choosing with a healthy slug of Pepsi Max and kick back with Pip and Brett (and for a few minutes, Pip’s mum) as we all give Pip the bumps and play all the usual birthday games that get wheeled out at this time of year.
OH YES - SPOILER ALERTS - the film ‘The Square’ gets talked about from 59:57 til 1:03:00, and then there are some light spoilers for the film ‘Hereditary’ from 1:03:53 til 1:10:00 or so. YA BEEN WARNED!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PIP!
