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.
