DrunkCast (Mk5) - Part 1 - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #118  

1. Welcome. 2. Welcome. 3. Welcome. You are welcomed, basically, to episode 118 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast which this week decided to take a brief stop-off at the Whiff Inn for some gentle advance refreshment! It would seem that said refreshment was such a success that it evolved from a brief stop to a very lengthy and comfortable stay... And as such, you are now making ground on the vast frontier of episode one of FOUR of this week's episode... It's a DrunkCast, people! LOOK ALIVE! Join your - at this point - relatively sober host Scroobius Pip, the estimable Redshift Rebels homie in chief Christopher Glasson and the Whiff Inn governor himself Stu Whiffen on another grand adventure through popular culture ("youth culture" as Stu is keen to highlight) and all things pertinent to the fellas since their last catchup. MMA, films, music, television, clubnight goodness, experiences in the outside world and behind closed doors, and all manner of gossip from here to there. From to to fro. East to West. The whole bit. Get involved - you know the drill by now - settle in with your booze brothers and get well stuck in...

Frankie Boyle - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #117  

A triple-stack of welcomes upon your good self to this, the one hundred and seventeenth episode of the perpetually polished and buffed-up Distraction Pieces podcast with your host Mister Scroobius Pip! A powerful and shameless display of podcasting goodness this week with the highly requested, heavily demanded Frankie Boyle! Hold tight as Pip and Frankie (there's an animated crime-solving duo if ever there was one) summit the comedy mountain and check off all kinds of flags along the journey, including hip hop (UK and grime specifically) and how Frankie's made efforts to apply to skill and dedication of the music to his own craft, his comic leanings and influences, his image of being somewhat on the offensive side in UK comedy and how his comedy is often misconstrued, heroes in comedy, the reality of alcoholism, reality television and popular culture and all that these topics entail... A huge amount to tackle and all manoeuvred through with precision and skill. Lovely. Get into it.

Edith Bowman - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #116  

Welcome, welcome, welcome and good day to you, Team 3W! It is episode 116 of the radio friendly, golden voiced, always fine tuned Distraction Pieces podcast with Scroobius Pip, and this week you are treated the routinely awesome presenter Queen on high, Edith Bowman! Kicking things off with no delay by first delving deep into all things film geek, as Pip and Edith go head to head in their cinematic love and knowledge - and of course that doesn't end there, as the conversation meanders wonderfully through Edith's media journey and upbringing (through her many varied and high level presenting roles), but never drifts too far from film island. You can hear and feel Edith's passion for film and soundtracks permeate through every second of their talk, and it's a fascinating accompaniment to your hopefully already Edith-ful day to day listening. Enriching and inspiring goodness. ••••• EDITH'S WEBSITE : http://www.edithbowman.com (and home of her 'Soundtracking' podcast) ••••• EDITH'S TWITTER : https://twitter.com/edibow ••••• EDITH'S INSTAGRAM : https://www.instagram.com/edibow ••••• ••••• PIP'S WEBSITE : www.scroobiuspip.co.uk ••••• PIP'S TWITTER : https://twitter.com/scroobiuspipyo ••••• PIP'S INSTAGRAM : https://www.instagram.com/scroobiuspipyo •••••

Satin Lizard Lounge Special (part 2) - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #115  

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME back to PART 2 of a hefty double dose of Distraction Pieces / Satin Lizards Lounge greatness... Peep the last episode for a full background of how this came about (and if you're seeing this episode before the first part, certainly go back and grab that one immediately!), but here we have the remaining three guests from what would have been Pip's curated Bestival lineup. Check this lot out... PART 2 GUESTLIST! • HOLLIE McNISH! • JACK ROOKE! • CECILIA KNAPP! A superb conclusion to this one-two punch (the friendly kind, naturally) with poignant and very real first-person parental scientifics from Hollie, the art of grieving and how to change the perspective from Jack, and rounding it up nicely with emotional and brilliantly acute observation from Cecilia. What a way to tie these two episodes together...

Satin Lizard Lounge Special (part 1) - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #115  

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME one and all to this extra heavy special episode of the DISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST! Another double episode at that! As you will hear, a double pack is the only way this could have been contained, as your host Scroobius Pip rounded up SIX guests for this marathon... Let's break it down... As you may know already, Pip hosted and curated his own spoken word lineup for number of years at Bestival, the Sunday Best label-brand festival over there on the Isle Of Wight, under the name 'The Satin Lizard Lounge' (sharing the name with the spoken word segment on his old XFM radio show 'The Beatdown'). It was all set for this year but unfortunately in a difficult year for festivals, the Satin Lizard Lounge was dropped and left in freefall... Pip wasn't having that, so he assembled the lineup here for your listening pleasure and also, as a chance for those who wouldn't have been able to make it down to catch these stunning poets and writers. The format is good old fashioned Distraction Pieces chat, and then a performance from each guest directly after. PART 1 GUESTLIST! • ROB AUTON! • MARIA FERGUSON! • RAYMOND ANTROBUS! A perfect first parter, delivering playful observational genius from Rob and a background on his 'Yellow' / 'Sky' / 'Water' shows and much more, powerful Fringe slaying from Maria who breaks down her 'Fat Girls Don't Dance' show and process/life/background and all that goodness, and heavy literature wrangling from Raymond with good dose of education talk and deep discussion.

Neil Woods - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #114  

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME to episode ONE HUNDRED AND FOURTEEN of the Distraction Pieces Podcast, hosted by Scroobius Pip! And once more it's another solid slammer of a show, this week featuring Neil Woods of UK LEAP and now published author! The perfect companion podcast to your steady diet of Distraction Pieces Network goodness (alongside Say Why To Drugs and Stop & Search), as Neil brings nothing but wisdom, refreshing outlooks and sobering stories which you will be glad you sat in on... Neil talks about his background in the police force, beginning as an honest, innocent and well-meaning officer, then going on to chart his course into full on undercover work and the incredibly murky, almost entirely lights-out-dark world of the underground drug scene and the dealers who operate within. Scary, threatening and funny stories from a true veteran, and an enlightening look into the world of prohibition alternatives and the work that UK LEAP does behind and in front of the scenes. Get involved, get informed, and take notes - this is a packed one...

W-W-WELCOME to DISTRACTION PIECES PODCAST: EPISODE 113: PART 2 - featuring, as before, Scroobius Pip as always, and again, as before, Limmy! Let's pick up from part 1 shall we...? Another revealing and refreshing nugget of podcast goodness fading in seamlessly from the previous instalment, where we join Limmy's quest from the crushing lows and internal struggles that one may face, as Limmy talks honestly and openly about fatherhood and life in general, and his climbing of the comedy ladder right up to his current touring antics, book release and future plans. Brilliant. Fans or yet-to-be-fans, get involved won't ya... LIMMY SOCIAL MEDIA!

Limmy (Part 1) - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #113  

WELCOME welcome welcome high and low, far and wide, to another bumper of a Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Congratulations on your download. You have made the correct choice. Especially being that this week the guest is comedy giant Brian "Limmy" Limond! A perfect back and forth with Glasgow's comic mastermind Limmy (and on occasion, mainly forth as Pip joins us, the listener, and lets Limmy hold court!), combing through the action packed origin story and leading us right up to around the present day, exposing the thrilling fun times as well as revealing the deep dark lows in a thoroughly down to earth fashion. Such a powerful and relatable talk, and definitely one for the Limmy heads as well as those who are perhaps unfamiliar with the man behind 'Limmy's Show' and 'Daft Wee Stories' among so much more... PART TWO UP NEXT!!!

Marcus Brigstocke - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #112  

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME one and all to your weekly (and sometimes more) delivery of the Distraction Pieces Podcast hosted as always by Scroobius Pip! And this week it's another comedic banger as he is joined by Marcus Brigstocke! A wonderful chat from start to end as Pip gets impossibly deep into the Marcus Brigstocke archives, combing through his incredibly heavy childhood and teen years, his comedic origins/roots/outlook and influence and all that entails (with a healthy amount of Fringe talk), his jazz interests with some good Miles Davis talk, his political leanings and a fascinating, emotional ride all the way through in which everything ties together perfectly. Superb. * 'The Wire' spoilers at around the 1h16s mark, just so you know. Marcus is here: www.marcusbrigstocke.com ...and here: https://twitter.com/marcusbrig Follow and enjoy!

Brendon Burns - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #111  

Welcome welcome welcome (no John Oliver) to your weekly Distraction Pieces podcast with Scroobius Pip! It's been an all the way live run of DPP goodness of late with Pip's UK book tour (hopefully you made it to a show or caught the book), but here he nails down an in-person in-studio guest - Perth's very own comic genius Brendon Burns! Wonderful stuff from start to end, with a lively tale of Brendon's upbringing and comic roots - which includes one of the simultaneously greatest and most horrible first show stories which is perfectly painful - and his influences stemming from black comics back in the 70s, politics and the hard left, how to work a crowd and the science of doing so, spoken word and poetry and what they are, Australia, wrestling talk (pertinent to his show with Colt Cabana) and good old fashioned podcast chat! Freeflowing and satisfying, get in and enjoy... ...And for sure you'll want to peep his own podcast too - 'Dumb White Guy', which is available here: https://soundcloud.com/brendonburns

Live from the Edinburgh Fringe - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #109  

Welcome, welcome, and as custom dictates, a third welcome upon you to the on-the-road globetrotting (UK-trotting) Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! This marks your second live book tour podcast, this time broadcasting live (at the time) from Stand 3 in Edinburgh! Treats upon treats upon treats is what you have, with a nice intro holler from Pip, and a traditional DPP setup with some grand guest chat - this time from SAGE FRANCIS and B DOLAN no less! The Strange Famous brothers settle down with Pip to run down the current state of US politics, Edinburgh Fringe politics, and life politics in general. Awesome business. Following that we have the audience-as-guest section where the chat is directed by YOU (THEM - the audience) (it could have been you though, as you may well have been one of the guests), and much ground is covered as always, from spoken word and poetry (pottery?) and the slam scene, previous guests, super powers, and ending up in a really important and interesting revelation/self analysis from Pip about being social and work, and that ever difficult balance. Fascinating. Go get it! Be back on Friday!
