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. Awesome from beginning to end, enjoy!
