Sofie Hagen - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #164  

TEAM 3W long termers and first timers, stand UP! Or remain seated. It truly is your call. Just get yourself comfortable really. The reason is this: EPISODE 164 of the DISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST with SCROOBIUS PIP is knocking at your door PRESENTLY! Look alive, fix up, look sharp also - as this week we welcome thricely the wonderful Danish comedy firecracker Sofie Hagen! True brilliance right here, and a surefire pick me up from the potential mid-week slumps that may be facing you - it could be that your week is flying by without hassle, and that is also perfect, as Sofie will raise you higher and higher still! Starting off with a nice run of television chat (leaping from recommendation to recommendation - stay focused!), which leads to her firm interest in the arts at an early age, hear how Sofie's spirit took her through all manner of jobs, including a charity call centre where she learned a good amount about interaction in a high pressure environment, right up to her somewhat surprising introduction into the comedy world. It was an introduction pretty much based entirely on her awesome and very unique personality and sense of humour, which you shall bear witness to right here - and SO much more besides, way too much to list here, being a no spoiler zone and all... Also interesting to hear how she deals with potentially anxious situations in her audience too, and how she tries to make preparations for these prior to the performance. Awesome stuff.

Episode 163 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip awaits your immediate attention - and it's a smash as always this week as we warmly welcome the wonderful Laurie Penny to the recording apparatus! A full on in depth heavy hitter right here, as Laurie and Pip go in on all manner of pertinent social and political topics - from the white male's position of privilege in society, to matters involving Trump and how it might be best to adopt a 'cold take' approach as opposed to the 'hot take' which we have become so accustomed to with Twitter at our fingertips, her columns and blogging career, journalism and just a whole awesome range of enlightening excellence. And as Pip states at the start, maybe a few things worth taking on board by way of evolving and progressing... A deep one and certainly one to really focus on - Laurie drops science from a great height here, get involved! ••••• LAURIE PENNY on TWITTER! - https://twitter.com/PennyRed ••••• LAURIE PENNY on THE INTERNET! - laurie-penny.com ••••• LAURIE PENNY's 'BITCH DOCTRINE' book! - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bitch-Doctrine-Essays-Dissenting-Adults/dp/1632867532 •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTER! - https://twitter.com/Scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAM! - https://www.instagram.com/scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS – https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com •••••••••• FOLLOW AND ENJOY!!!

Alice Lowe - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #162  

Welcome welcome welcome to episode 162 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A delicious episode right here as Pip sits down for a hell of a chat with the very awesome Alice Lowe! You are sure to have caught Alice on anything from the gloriously weird Garth Marenghi's Darkplace to the equally weird and wonderful Mighty Boosh and TONS more besides, as well as her big screen work on films like Hot Fuzz, Sightseers or more recently - and more urgently! - Prevenge, her new film where she is basically going deep method in that she was pregnant through the filming, which fed perfectly into the role as a pregnant woman. It couldn't have synced up nicer than that! Listen to Alice's story unfold and get a powerful insight into her acting world - as you can well imagine, it contains multitudes...

Doc Brown - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #161  

A rousing three-part welcome to you and yours as we enter the one hundred and sixtieth episode of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! You never thought Pip's pod would take it this far... Nah that can't be true - that was just a crowbarred-in Biggie reference. Nevertheless - here's a VERY juicy episode right here featuring the UK rap gawd and multi-talented all rounder Doc Brown! A full on massive chat here as Pip and Doc catch up on all monosyllabic matters (and polysyllabic, come on now) from the early days of the Doc Brown beginnings right up to the present. And what a journey it is - maybe you know him from his appearances on Ricky Gervais's 'Derek', his legendary 'Slang 101' rap (a Youtube firestarter), his rap career in general, his early days in the Deal Real scene way back when, his presenting skills (and awesome fill-in on the Radio 5 Live film reviews - hello to Jason Isaac), and now author... Well, whichever discipline from which you know the Doc, prepare for a wonderful trip down that path and a real treat of a talk, from two people who have been there, done that and can give you the backstory directors commentary on the whole science...

Please take your seats and adorn your listening apparatus as we cordially welcome the amazing Laura Dockrill to the podcast throne! Very much a creative multi-threat (while being entirely non-threatening of course), Laura is a master of all trades she turns her busy hands to, as you will hear throughout her chat with Pip. A long awaited chat at that, as this is very much an old pal reunion, so it's a real treat to hear the two trade bars on the old scenes they were involved in.

TEAM 3W... The time has come... Welcome welcome welcome to episode 158 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip, which happens to be the long awaited DESTINY 2 special!

Child Soldiers Special w/ Wayne Sharrocks - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #157  

Team 3W where you at? Three welcomes delivered to your doorstep as ever, as we straighten out the doormat and hoover the hallway to this week's Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip - it's episode 157! A heavy one at that, and certainly one that will hit home with a good few of you, or shine a light on some parts of the armed forces that perhaps you may not have been familiar with previously. Here to deliver such science is Wayne Sharrocks - film maker, public speaker and campaigner, but more importantly, he served in the British Army for a good seven years or so, and is therefore more than qualified to deliver the insider perspective on the armed forces and process of becoming a soldier from start to end. A big subject to tackle, an emotive and provocative one too, and Wayne and Pip don't mess around with this - it's a honest and frank discussion which hits upon the whole sphere of national defence, ranging from the reasons why one might sign up, the age of new recruits (and why currently that may not be such a wise choice), what the new recruit might face upon entry and how the internal hierarchy works, the journey to a warzone, what happens then, and being in the immediate vicinity of soldiers who make the ultimate sacrifice (which Wayne has experienced up close). This sets the tone and context for an inspiring and positive talk about whether or not this is right for most people, whether a younger recruit is in the correct frame of mind to engage in such a heavy and intensive process, and how interaction in civilian society can be a very real issue for those who have served and become so intimately involved with the armed forces and the framework within. A deeply interesting discussion, and Wayne shares his points of view, experience and wisdom articulately and honestly, which will leave you with much to consider and unpack. And certainly an insight into how some of the army slang works too... Spoiler: it's not safe for work. ••••• WAYNE on TWITTER! – http://www.twitter.com/wsharrocks ••••• WAYNE on INSTAGRAM! - https://instagram.com/waynesharrocks ••••• WAYNE on YOUTUBE! - https://www.youtube.com/c/waynesharrocks ••••• WAYNE'S WEBSITE! - http://www.waynesharrocks.com •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTER! - https://twitter.com/Scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAM! - https://www.instagram.com/scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS – https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com •••••••••• FOLLOW AND ENJOY!!!

Goldie - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #156  

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome to YOU - and three times welcomed you are to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip, episode 156 at that! A proper filfy drum n' bass banger right here this week too as Pip is joined FINALLY after a long bout of scheduling and planning by the one and only, the Metalhead himself, the UK's national drum & bass treasure - Goldie! "The barbarians from within will raise their heads and rise the deities..." ...and that's one single quote from this absolutely ram packed and intense juggernaught rollercoaster of an episode, as Pip white-knuckles the railing and hold on for dear life as the whirlwind rolls through town and demolishes all in its path! The whirlwind being Goldie, that is. I'm sure you gathered that. Finding his home out in Phuket these days, the path has been rocky, full on, winding and incredible and Goldie has lived through it all - the raves, the graf days out in the Bronx, early days of techno, being a household name in what they used to call 'intelligent drum & bass' with his smash hit 'Inner City Life', a rugged divorce, heavy personal life events including the passing of his mother, and every single second underpinned by his unending appetite for his craft and music making. A fantastic and thrilling ride of an episode, which will make you want to dig out the back catalogue and reminisce over the past while waiting for his new album 'The Journey Man' to download... As Goldie put it himself; "There are no full stops in my life... At all..." Oh and wait for the American and German accents later on. Blimey. ••••• GOLDIE on TWITTER! – https://twitter.com/MRGOLDIE ••••• GOLDIE on INSTAGRAM! - https://www.instagram.com/mrgoldie ••••• 'The Journey Man' by Goldie - https://goldie.lnk.to/TYMFP •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTER! - https://twitter.com/Scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAM! - https://www.instagram.com/scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS – https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com •••••••••• FOLLOW AND ENJOY!!!

Christopher Fairbank (Part 2) - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #155  

Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back to PART 2 of episode 155 of DPP (as we can call it now since you're all familiar from part 1) with Scroobius Pip! How great was part 1 eh? Well find that comfortable spot with your nominated listening apparatus from a few hours ago and prepare to be doubly satisfied as you enjoy the second part with CHRISTOPHER FAIRBANK! So much goodness, as Christopher gets deep into the acting science with past and previous, and rounds up this episode with some phenomenal tales from the sets of the original Tim Burton 'Batman' and David Fincher's 'Alien 3'... Those anecdotes alone could well make their own episodes, some crazy business by the sounds of things! Absolute madness. Besides that, there's a ton more to uncover, with personal philosophies, morals, experiences, lessons, so much to ensure that you keep checking for Christopher's work from here on out and back into the past. Amazing stuff from a true stage and screen veteran. Enjoy, again! ••••• AUF WIEDERSEHEN PET on...

Christopher Fairbank (Part 1) - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #155  

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 155 of the fresh, fly, wild and bold DISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST with Scroobius Pip! Hopefully you have found a comfortable spot and your phone is fully charged, or at least at like 35% minimum or thereabouts (or your iPod or however you go about your business), and you are ready for a grand double part dose of goodness as Pip is joined by acting heavyweight Christopher Fairbank! With a rich and varied career in front of the camera, Clavering's own Christopher obviously has a ton of tales to share and good lord you're gonna get some here... He and Pip find time to sit down and "set the chat among the pigeons" (word to Alan Partridge) and get down and dirty in the earlier years of Christopher's life. While he has many a tale to tell about the acting side of things, you'll love his rundown of his early life and growing up - a full on cinematic narrative in itself, combining boarding schools, smoking at an insanely early age, discovering acting instincts on stage through sudden improv, being thoroughly dissuaded from acting by his boardmaster, arrest, drugs, some time spent at Her Majesty's Pleasure, bikes, suspension, owning the stage, and SO so much more. Just wonderful, and Pip sews the whole lot together masterfully. The only bad thing is you'll have to wait it out for part two... But just be patient... It's on the way... In the meantime - this will keep you thoroughly entertained!

Neil Fitzmaurice - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #154  

Welcome welcome welcome to your 154th episode of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! And that is an actual factual statement as Pip has been on each and every one, without fail, sometimes more than once a week at that. So it's actually MORE than 154 really... But anyway - let's get down to business. Another wonderful actor-based chat this week as Pip sits down with one of Liverpool's finest Mr NEIL FITZMAURICE, actor, comedian, writer and more! Neil and Pip find themselves working alongside one another currently on a new film called 'Walk Like A Panther' (which has been announced so this can be referred to by name!), and make use of the canteen on-set to have a full on, broad-ranging and hugely entertaining discussion covering the whole lot - politics and the current electoral situation, the Hillsborough tragedy which hit Neil very personally and comprehensively in a number of ways, his upbringing and early life where his playwright seeds were sewn, right up to his acting career which found him as main player in Peter Kay's 'Phoenix Nights' (and 'That Peter Kay Thing'), a nice cameo in 'The Office', regular offender as Jeff in 'Peep Show' and a great deal more since then including his awesome comedian career too... Fantastic stuff from a real veteran, who has passion and dedication, along with pride and experience. Inspiration stuff. Also - shoutout to Stephen Graham who is rapidly becoming the spiritual godfather of the Distraction Pieces podcast! ••••• NEIL on TWITTER! – https://twitter.com/Fitzyfella ••••• NEIL on INSTAGRAM! - https://www.instagram.com/fitzyfella (at time of linking, no posts but stay tuned...!) ••••• HONOURABLE MENTION TO STEPHEN GRAHAM! - https://twitter.com/StephenGraham73 •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTER! - https://twitter.com/Scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAM! - https://www.instagram.com/scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS – https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com •••••••••• FOLLOW AND ENJOY!!!

Sofia Boutella - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #153  

Welcome. Welcome. And you know what? You've earned it. Welcome. Now we're done with the formalities, consider yourself appropriately welcomed to your ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THIRD episode of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! One fiddy three. Imagine that. In a drastic change to last week's solo spoken word episode, Pip has some real life company this week, and as such this is a truly golden episode - ladies and gentlemen, please enjoy the shining ray of light that is Sofia Boutella! One of those incredibly inspirational episodes where the conversation really drives through some lovely terrain, and you'll enjoy where this journey takes you for real. Sofia is currently all over the place (as Pip witnessed via the medium of the good old American billboard) with her new blockbuster 'The Mummy' on release (co-starring some fella whose first name is Tom, that's all the info we have at this point), but you may well know her from her varied work in 'Star Trek', 'Kingsman', and killing it in an insane series of Nike ads a little while back. Oh and touring with Madonna of course. So basically casually running things from top to bottom, essentially. Not an ounce of egotism or arrogance here from Sofia - instead, you can expect a humble, inspirational and uplifting tale as she runs (and dances) through her life up to now and where the paths looks like it's headed... From Algeria to France and then to Hollywood, it's been a tightrope at times, and often with not a safety net in sight. This is what happens when you chase your dreams and catch the bastards, people...

Living Room Spoken Word - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #152  

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 152 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! In a slight alteration to the usual proceedings to which we have all become so accustomed, the guest this week is SCROOBIUS PIP his goddamn self! Working with the formula of such Speech Development Records releases such as 'At Home With Polar' (Polarbear) or 'At Home With Rob' (Rob Auton), Pip sat down in his temporary residence up in Los Angeles and recorded a selection of his poems read from his book 'Poetry In (e)Motion', the graphic poetry novel released all the way back in 2010. Pip's been crazy busy with all manner of podcast and acting related activity of late, over the past couple of years in fact, so this is a very cool opportunity to sit in with your host and indulge in some non 'Ask Pip' episode company for a change! No spoilers as to what you'll be treated to here, but it's a fantastic episode and a different one to usual. It's a goody for the original Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip heads, the solo Pip appreciators and even those who may not know that Pip even made music or did spoken word before all of this! The mild background noise of the hustle and bustle of LA in the background trickles in through the windows here and there too to add a lush, subtle ambience and give a pleasant foundation to Pip's already engaging poems. So sit back and relax, or find a calm space in your potentially busy environment, maybe find a nice tuck-spot on the train carriage next to the door and the seat barrier (you know the spot) and while away an hour or so with Pip. •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTER! – https://twitter.com/Scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAM! – https://www.instagram.com/scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS – https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com •••••••••• 'POETRY IN (e)MOTION' book - https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com/en-gb/artist/scroobius-pip/hardbacks/poetry-in-e-motion •••••••••• FOLLOW AND ENJOY!!!

Huey Morgan - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #151  

Welcome welcome welcome to episode 151 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Very happy to have you aboard. This week is a straight up New Yorican banger, as Pip is joined by the infamous, the notorious, the Fun Lovin' Criminal himself Mister Huey Morgan! A long awaited one right here, as Pip has forged a friendship with Huey over the years so a chat was always on the cards between these two. From his days misbehaving in New York back in the day (now currently causing havoc in Somerset!), to joining the Marines and channeling his inner aggression into more positive areas, to bartending and setting up a band which would later lead to an illustrious music career, all peppered with real life madness - living through 9/11, a standoff with a Hanson member (and close relation), and that appearance on Never Mind The Buzzcocks. Huey is a powerful presence in the music industry and whether you've been down since Fun Lovin' Criminals or picked up on him through his 6 Music show, you'll get a lot out of this episode - a solid chat you'll wish would go on for far longer (well it kind of can if you peep Huey's podcast in forthcoming weeks - more on that in THIS podcast!) - enjoy the gawd Huey Morgan! And here's to a good number of you having his mantra cycling around your head long after the listening is done - "What Would The Bronx Do?" ••••• HUEY on TWITTER! – https://twitter.com/OfficialHuey ••••• FUN LOVIN' CRIMINALS on INSTAGRAM! – https://www.instagram.com/funlovincrims ••••• HUEY MORGAN: OFF THE RECORD podcast! – https://www.acast.com/hueyofftherecord ••••• 6 MUSIC - The Huey Show - www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00ds8lp •••••••••• SCROOBIUS PIP – https://twitter.com/Scroobiuspipyo •••••••••• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS – https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com •••••••••• FOLLOW AND ENJOY!!!

Ask Pip v.5 (Part 2) - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #149  

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME to your weekly Distraction Pieces podcast with Scroobius Pip, and here is your fifth opportunity to sit down with the man himself and indulge in pure undiluted one-on-one Pip goodness! THIS IS PART 2! Much more wonder and merriment to round off your double dose of good time rapping with the gawd Piplo, as he covers some more ground including more UFC, beard talk, a nice snippet from his old show on XFM, acting game, and a question which leads the podcast in a very moving and pretty heart-wrenching direction. It's powerful stuff, things get emotional, but it's all part of the up close and personal nature of listening to unrestricted long-form talk in your ears like this. You'll always get the full picture with Distraction Pieces, all the elements - and this contains just that. Come aboard and enjoy, we have a real good one here ladies and gentlemen. ••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on TWITTER! – https://twitter.com/Scroobiuspipyo ••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on INSTAGRAM! – https://www.instagram.com/scroobiuspipyo ••••• SCROOBIUS PIP on FACEBOOK! – https://www.facebook.com/scroobiuspip •••••••••• SPEECH DEVELOPMENT RECORDS – https://scroobiuspip.backstreetmerch.com •••••••••• FOLLOW AND ENJOY!!!
