Katherine Ryan - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #138  

WELCOME, welcome, WELCOME (shouted the first and third ones there to keep you on yer toes) to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! 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! What a treat this week, as Pip is joined by the Netflix-fresh comic heavyweight who has been putting in work for a good, good while, as well as her micro-dogs (which you will have the pleasure of hearing snore in the podcast, you're welcome). 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... Delight in that Anglo-Canadian accent, rejoice in her story, and celebrate the supreme, hilarious, and thoroughly wonderful Katherine Ryan! – – – – –  ••••• Katherine Ryan - 'In Trouble' • https://www.netflix.com/title/80134968 ••••• 'In Trouble' trailer • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1iNZ4XukhE ••••• Katherine on Twitter • https://twitter.com/Kathbum – – – – –  ••••• Scroobius Pip on Twitter • https://twitter.com/scroobiuspipyo ••••• Scroobius Pip on Instagram • https://www.instagram.com/scroobiuspipyo ••••• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS • https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com

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! Go and see the great man himself - details here: • https://www.wimhofmethod.com/activities/whm-workshop-london WIM HOF WEBSITE: https://www.wimhofmethod.com WIM HOF on TWITTER: https://twitter.com/iceman_hof WIM HOF on INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/iceman_hof Follow him and tell him Pip sent ya!

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!

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME TO 2017!!! Happy new year to all Distraction Pieces crew (and non-crew, it's all love this year), we hope you had a phenomenal start to it all and saw off the remainder of last year's mayhem and carnage appropriately. Here's to the goodness and greatness ahead for all! SPEAKING OF WHICH... Here's a proper slice of Distraction Pieces Podcast confection for your ears, featuring very special guest Rob Parker! Maybe you know him... It's possible you don't... Nevertheless - prepare to make a new friend in this professional rugby player-turned-actor, as he gives you the full - the VERY full - scoop on everything Rob, from his upbringing right on through to the present day, where you will find him co-starring with your vibrant host Mr Scroobius Pip (and acting titanium Tom Hardy and Stephen Graham) in the upcoming 'Taboo'! A fascinating rundown, ranging from how he made it into the world of pro-sports via an award-winning and braggadocios schoolmate, his biking interests which date back to when he was but a three year old, all with the through line of his admirable and inspiration commitment to work and all round work ethic, down to sleeping in his car on the way to acting spots just to get the job done. Not only that, but tons more nuggets and jewels in this wide ranging and uplifting conversation, which also breaks down his heavy addiction to painkillers and how he dragged himself through it all, and rounding off wonderfully with a killer tale of how he actually made it to the screen in the first place... You will be sticking around for that for real... ENJOY!!!

WASSSUUUP WASSSUUUP WASSSUUUP to this, your fourth and therefore FINAL DrunkCast podcast of 2016 with your three very wise and verrry drunken men (that'll be Scroobius Pip, Chris Glasson and Stu Whiffen), and the two equally drunken souls who accompany the trio (Brett Goldstein and Romesh Ranganathan - actually Romesh is considerably more drunk than everyone else)! Ladies and gentlemen, please enjoy the final quarter of the mayhem... So what do we have here... Well - you know the routine. And this time the gang started with the best of intentions to give you a full and comprehensive rundown, month by month, of the year, but as you will hear, these best intentions quickly unravel into untraceable tangents, full on banter assault and general intoxicated insanity...

'Tis the season for the world to be put to rights by the Distraction Pieces fellowship, so join in and come aboard - grab a ringside seat, secure your snacks and nestle into that chunky knit sweater...

Lauren Laverne - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #127  

Welcome, welcome, WELCOME (shouted that last one) to episode 127 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! This week is a sureshot slammer as Pip is joined by the long-hinted at national treasure Lauren Laverne! A perfect broadcasting-based chat as Pip and Lauren get along like old mates, venturing easily back and forth into her past and present and covering all necessary awesomeness along the way. We get all the scoops on her early days with pop band Kenickie (surely at least a few of you out there are still holding onto a comprehensive back catalogue), her humble but broadminded Sunderland upbringing in a 'cultural tardis' surrounded by all kinds of music, the cynicism poured over programmes like 'Geordie Shore' and such like, her illustrious career in both television and radio, which currently finds her comfortably holding the fort down on her BBC 6Music slot and boasting a 2 million-plus listenership, and her website The Pool, which is a fantastic female-centric website that demands your immediate attention. Alongside that, we hear more on the magic of radio on the whole which of course summons the long-missed spirit of John Peel, Terry Wogan, Glastonbury and the festival scene, and how she manages to keep such an insanely busy schedule in check. Inspirational, crazy entertaining and immensely satisfying. Get in to it!

B. Dolan / Knowmore.org - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #125  

Welcome, welcome, welcome to your one hundred and twenty-fifth episode of the all knowing, all seeing and all conquering Distraction Pieces Podcast with your host Scroobius Pip! A solid gold slammer this week as you have become accustomed to by now, with Strange Famous and Speech Development's very own B. Dolan! B's third visit to the Distraction Pieces labs is on official business, this time not specifically involving rap music but focused more on the current efforts to get the incredibly important Knowmore.org site up and running to maximum power. You may have heard of Knowmore and how it offers an invaluable resource to the public, by way of providing information about the ethics of companies and corporations that would otherwise be very difficult for the public to get their hands on. It's been operational for around a decade through B. Dolan's efforts and with assistance from a tireless brigade of like-minded and well-intentioned helpers, but now is the time to get this incredible resource up to the level of power it truly deserves to be at - now is the time to transform it into a full on, full time and fully operational one-stop platform for finding out where your money is really going in order that you can make truly informed decisions about where you are putting your currencies... A wonderful Skype convo with Pip from the PipLabs and B from the B. Labs, going into proper depth about the company, the trials and tribulations, the history, the origins, the incredible American Apparel saga, the future, and how you can help be a part of the leveling-up of this brilliant cause. ...and as you may well imagine, a healthy amount of post-election talk too. Goddamn... Has it really been a week...? KNOWMORE.ORG - listen, get informed, get involved, and spread the word.

UFC 205 Roundtable w/ Chris & Sam - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #124  

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME and SURPRISE - it's a full strength Monday morning shot of triple-distilled Distraction Pieces goodness for your immediate attention! Not so much a DrunkCast as a Sleep-DeprivedCast BUT no less on point and razor sharp, as Pip is joined by the DrunkCast regular and Distraction Pieces Champ/Redshift Rebels homie Mr Chris Glasson, as well as special guest Sam Marshall of Chester Le Street CrossFit (who you will know from various references and bigups in previous podcasts). A very full on UFC reaction podcast right here as the trio go DEEP into UFC 205 and the results/events therein, as well as several nuggets and tidbits laced throughout. But really this is a proper UFC throwdown so if you're a UFC head, this one's you. If you're not necessarily familiar but are interested in the scene, then this is a perfect way to become accustomed to names, terms, the whole deal. Join the gang for a pastry/coffee/gossip-filled chatgallery and powerful post-UFC face-off! Enjoy.

Iain Lee - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #123  

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME - three welcome as standard of course - to episode 123 of your weekly Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! ...and what a perfect companion to last weeks broadcasting gold, as we welcome (thrice, naturally) radio maverick and all round frequency-waves captain Iain Lee! A wonderfully wide-ranging discussion between Pip and Iain, covering the whole journey which has led him to where he currently makes his radio home at Talk Radio. From his glorious pseudonym IAIN IN BLACK THUNDER (certainly a strong contender for an Iain bio-pic title) in his old-skool presenting days, all the way through the main stations he's frequented including LBC and Absolute, as well as his time a while back on '11 O' Clock Show', his path has been intense and full of learning curves and hurdles, all of which you shall hear about. How he gets the most from call-in guests and his sixth-sense for when there's more to be gleaned, his 'bedroom' style of broadcasting and how he reached that sleek freestyle flow of presenting, and a very moving recounting of his situation at the BBC which led to a firing and consequently, a long and heavy depression. Heavy, entertaining, open, honest and inspiring. These broadcasters always bring it and this is further proof of that... Get to know more about Iain - after this one you surely will, and you'll be glad you do. Enjoy! IAIN LEE • Twitter - @IainLee • Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/iainlee ADDITIONAL NOTES!
