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