Gemma Cairney - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #148  

Welcome ONE, welcome TWO, and as tradition dictates, welcome THREE to the Distraction Pieces Podcast! Thank you for coming, or returning, or however you're working it. Very nice it is to have you here - and it's another goody this week as Scroobius Pip catches up with his old pal Gemma Cairney! A proper fun get together here as Gemma's golden tones fill the podcast with light and energy, and it's an all round good time from start to end, even when heavy topics are brought up and handled. Hear her story and how she got where she is, which is a very cool place indeed - maverick broadcaster and seasoned BBC veteran (the cool place where she is, in literal terms, is Margate). She's insanely busy at all times, DJing and presenting and podcasting, but she's also got a new book out called 'Open' which you are cordially invited to check out and enjoy at your leisure. Not too leisurely though, exercise a little hustle at least. Enjoy these two mates go at it verbally and have fun with Pip and Gemma! ••••• GEMMA on TWITTER! – https://twitter.com/gemcairn ••••• GEMMA on INSTAGRAM! – https://www.instagram.com/gemagain ••••• GEMMA'S PODCAST! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/podcast/open-up-with-gemma-cairney/id1210297442?mt=2 ••••• GEMMA'S BOOK! – http://pages.panmacmillan.com/openthebook •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP – https://twitter.com/Scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS – https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com •••••••••• FOLLOW AND ENJOY!!!

Kelly Marcel - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #147  

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME once again three more times to your weekly dose of Distraction Pieces Podcast in mp3 format from up in the sky somewhere directly to your earpieces! This week your host Scroobius Pip is joined by none other than his old pal and script/screenwriter Kelly Marcel! A crazy story right here which Kelly unfolds for you, not before she relays how she rescued a fearless but accident prone squirrel and nursed it back to bitey and aggro health... From her days back in the book corner at school (a punishment area, not for recreation) up to her days in the video store hanging with a then fairly green Tom Hardy, and her reasons for ending up there which involved a not so supportive school system, hear how she became a full on fully qualified silver screen smash through various acting jobs (of COURSE The Bill is involved!), up to her crossing paths with the director of all directors himself Stephen Spielberg. The story gets no less intense or full on from there on, as she barrels through such films as 'Saving Mr Banks', '50 Shades Of Grey' and some ace newness on the way, and also hear her story of how she started and ended her relationship with the series 'Terra Nova', which is how the whole saga began, writing the script in her spare hours at the video store. Without giving any more away then, here is the inspiring and wonderful Kelly Marcel! Saver of squirrels, rescuer of dogs, writer of scripts, mother of child, an all round powerhouse! ••••• KELLY on TWITTER! – https://twitter.com/MissMarcel ••••• 'SAVING MR BANKS" trailer (old but gold) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5kYmrjongg ••••• KELLY on IMDB! – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0545150 •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP – https://twitter.com/Scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS – https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com •••••••••• FOLLOW AND ENJOY!!!

Welcome welcome welcome to episode 146 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!

The long awaited, often requested spoken word artist / author / many other crafts beside, joins Pip this week for a grand old get together and full on chat covering just about everything... Being pals for many a year from the early days, rocking tours together and just being genuine mates who talk and do stuff together, they have a lot to ramble about and many bases are covered - the craft itself, the makers and doers, how they got where they are, what they're up to now, life, love, the universe, the whole thing. So much to enjoy and listen back to, you'll love this one - and you get a nice bonus treat of Polar's track 'Jessica' in there too for good measure, how does that grab ya? Decent.

There is also a rather noisy crescendo to this episode, so just be prepared for your ears and even those around you - it gets messy. You know the routine. Come on, this is the final part of the podcast where Pip gets drunk with two of his mates. What else did you expect? Good work folks, you did grand!

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME - NO TIME TO EXPLAIN! It's the SEVENTH edition of the Distraction Pieces DrunkCast! You know what it is... Scroobius Pip is joined by Drunkateers Stu Whiffen and Chris Glasson at the Whiff Inn for another few rounds of gossip, goodness, glasses of all kinds of booze and the usual loudmouf banter you have come to enjoy and demand! Since the last time we joined the crew, Chris and Stu have become professional seasoned podcasters haven't they! You may have heard their 'Hardcore Listing' podcast by now, but here are some behind the scenes nuggets from the two and their inspirations, guests to come and what it all involves.

James Buckley - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #144  

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME (three in a row, no commas) to another slammer of an episode of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A proper jolly episode it is too, as Pip is joined by James Buckley, or as you may know him, Jay from The Inbetweeners! Or indeed any other given name of one of his many roles on television... Pip was introduced to James via his DrunkCast (and real life) mate Stu Whiffen, and here we are in the room with the two, kicking it like old mates - a nice and broad-ranging conversation, hitting on The Inbetweeners as you would expect and demand, playing young Del Boy in Rock & Chips, his own computer gaming Youtube channel 'Completed It Mate' and how he started and developed it all, his life out in Los Angeles and the myriad weirdness within, and being an actor in general. His take on being an Englishman out there and auditioning is well worth peeping, and hints and how UK folk have a knack for cutting through that actor-type-stuff with genuine awkward UK charm. Race relations are also covered, as are James's past experience with shows that he morally objects to, and there's just tons to sink yer teeth into here - great stuff, for Inbetweeners heads and people who have never seen a single episode.

And now you know the guest this week but nevertheless, she deserves two mentions at the very least because she smashed it - it's Susan Wokoma! Welcome welcome welcome to EPISODE 143! A fantastic banter with Pip and Susan, going in deep on all aspects of her personal history, all the way back to her school days in a multicultural environment and the many positive influences that can have, to being encouraged to apply to the National Youth Theatre by a teacher, and her inspiring journey through to where she currently finds herself atop the summit of UK acting talent! A super entertaining journey, and a lovely chat bringing in tales of her parents, her neighbours (good, bad and conflicted), her teachers, mates, acting roles and general outlook on the whole path, as well as - of course - her killing it in 'Chewing Gum' and 'Crazyhead'.

Holly Ross (The Lovely Eggs) - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #140  

Welcome, welcome, and BOOM another welcome right there to this, episode 140 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Please welcome (three times) to the stage, Lancaster's indie Queen, frontwoman of The Lovely Eggs, Holly Ross! A glorious chat with a hardcore touring indie band veteran, and thoroughly enlightening at that - a proper peek behind the curtain (or the sliding door of a tourvan) at what goes on in the day to day, which is a ton of hard work in itself but add to THAT a small child and you have yourself a full plate with all the trimmings... But Holly shows it can be done, and this is a great, inspiring back and forth revealing some fantastic life-hacks for bands and parents in bands who are on the road, as well as a comprehensive rundown of Holly's history in the indie scene. Not only that, hear how awesome their fanbase is too! Get involved - get listening, Holly's ace and you should peep the music of The Lovely Eggs (and if you want to dig deeper, her old band Angelica too).

David Johns - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #139  

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 139 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! We trust that your pancakes were all perfect. We also trust all is well with all y'all. Assuming that all IS well with all y'all, prepare to get weller, as you're about to make friends with comedian turned actor Dave Johns! ...and to introduce the man himself, who better to quote than Dave himself: "Hello, my name's Dave Johns, I'm a comic and I hear Ken Loach is looking for a bloke my age - I'd be up for that" - yes indeed, you may recognize him from his recent award winning and audience heart winning film 'I, Daniel Blake', which has been steadily making noise and gaining well earned attention not only in the UK but worldwide - not necessarily an easy feat for a film addressing the UK bureaucracy of benefits and those caught within. Hear Dave's lovely and entertaining run down of what got him here, his comic background and history in running comedy nights, right up to his acting life and all that the Ken Loach directed 'I, Daniel Blake' has to offer, address and talk about. And when you hear where his personal fork in the life-road may have taken him, you'll surely grin and maybe even consider a new direction in your own path... Brilliant stuff, and Dave is definitely someone to keep up with, Enjoy! And watch 'I, Daniel Blake' at your nearest opportunity. Or rewatch it if you've already done so.

Episode 138 awaits your immediate attention and is ready for your listening ears directly, and it is a great pleasure to welcome the London resident Canadian comedian Katherine Ryan to the microphone!

A proper nice chat as we get the full ins and outs of Katherine's journey along the comic landscape, from the Canadian badlands to the UK panel show circuit and FAR far beyond... From her days wishing she was Jessica Simpson, to opening for Amy Schumer, to headlining her own Netflix special 'In Trouble', which is destroying the internet currently...

Wim Hof - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #136  

WELCOME, WELCOME, WELCOME to episode 136 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A seasonally appropriate episode at that, as Pip is joined by the Ice Man himself, the legendary Dutch daredevil Mr Wim Hof! Don't get all wrapped and warm for this one - it's going to get incredibly frosty up in here... Chances are you may not already have made Wim's acquaintance - that's fine, for after this podcast you will most likely be digging around online and listening to his glorious cadence for hours to follow... If you have already broken the ice (skate over that pun) (and that one) with the man, you will surely be up to speed on The Wim Hof Technique, his apparently superhuman abilities to withstand cold, his infectiously positive and inspiring tones and talking points and his many accomplishments in the field of human endurance. Either way, this is a brilliant conversation (recorded from Wim's home in the outskirts of Amsterdam) where you will learn about his said method, how he came upon such techniques and how he has applied them, the science behind a lot of it and, oh, something about climbing Kilimanjaro in his shorts. And standing in a container of ice cubes in Manhattan for an hour and a bit. Ladies and gentlemen, we are in the presence of a modern day comic book superhero. Listen, learn, be entertained and uplifted. It's a goodie this week, people. BE ALERT! Wim will be making his way to the UK in April!

Homelessness Special Part 2 - Haircuts 4 Homeless - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #135  

Welcome, welcome, welcome to part 2 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast homelessness special with Scroobius Pip! So far you may have already listened to part 1 with the fabulous Mustard Tree organisation, and now you are about to hear from the neatly trimmed and perfectly coiffed Stewart Roberts and Lee Dixon of Haircuts 4 Homeless! A name so perfectly descriptive that it tells you exactly what it's about in three words. Genius. Stewart has played a major part in cutting Pip's hair (and that of his family members) over the years since he was a young'un, which kicks off this fascinating and motivational chat with the guys - naturally Pip went his own way with his facial hair but that's a different story for another time. Inspired by Mark Bustos, who lit the way for offering haircuts and grooming for the homeless population in the US, Mark set about on his own work in the area, fully utilising his own completely transferable skillset and beginning work in Essex. Since then his idea has flourished and taken him all over the world, and seen a great expansion since his initial plan began. It's really engaging to hear how something as seemingly simple as a haircut can change someone, but that feeling of pride in appearance and having someone take time over ensuring your hair looks neat and tidy can really make a world of difference. It gives back dignity and self respect and is something that everyone should be entitled to. So enjoy this episode with Stewart and Lee and see what's been going on, how they do it, what they plan on doing in the future and get inspired!

Garth Jennings - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #134  

Welcome welcome welcome one and all (but YOU specifically) to episode 134 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Fancy seeing you here on a Wednesday of all days. Well, since we're all present and correct let's get you set up and listening to this ferociously awesome episode with very special guest GARTH JENNINGS shall we? Yes we shall! You may very well know him from his previous director work on 'Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy', 'Son Of Rambow' or way back even further to the supreme video for Blur's 'Coffee & TV', and maybe you heard him on the always ace Adam Buxton podcast, but now you get him all to yourself for an hour or so as he opens up to Pip about his new film 'Sing', amongst a whole world of other things... A crazy entertaining and uplifting, energetic chat full of enthusiasm and just straight up fun, getting into the circumstances surrounding the beginning of 'Sing', and how this animation about animals gained traction from a germ of an idea to casually hitting up Wes Anderson to get a quick voice recording for a character, and of course everything besides - some great tales about getting the immense cast list together and the process within, how to get a perfect performance from his kids (the good old fashioned 'chase and tickle' technique) and just inspiring, nice, friendly goodness.

Matt Willis - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #132  

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome to YOU, the listener, of this, the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip - episode 132 at that! With any luck the new year has been treating you wonderfully, and at the very least, reasonably, and you've all been settling into 2017 snugly and comfortably. The Distraction Pieces Podcast will get you through, whatever the weather. ...and this week is no exception, as we welcome Matt Willis from Busted! Maybe they're a band you've enjoyed in the past, maybe you've snuck some Busted in your regular playlist rotation here and there, maybe a sibling or pal of yours has been a follower fan... Well, whatever way the band has made it into your radar, now's the time to "look for the similarities, not the differences" (a poignant quote from this week and last week, coincidentally enough) as we get into the life of Matt and the many, MANY trials and tribulations of being in an ultra popular pop band in the early 00's. Who would have thought it would be so tricky... A fascinating look under the Busted bonnet as we hear about the four-track foundations, the organic band growth, the astronomical launch to fame and stardom and the heaviness of a bandmate who is struggling with it all... Not only that, you will also have a ringside seat to Matt's own struggles with alcohol addiction, a unique tale but one which also resonates all too often among those in the spotlight... Thankfully Matt remained strong and is here to tell Pip the tale, so sit back and listen!
