    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined, once again, for the universal good of podcast listeners, by JORDAN GRAY!
    It's a much requested and long awaited return, and so much has happened in Jordan's world since the last visit in actually quite a short span of time. We catch up with Jordan hot off their triumphant return from Edinburgh Fringe which proved to be a VERY full on month of highs, and the two catch up and check in on all of that, as well as The Voice, shows and scripts and coming up with material, new audiences, class, investing in yourself, a uniquely Marvel experience which is just wonderful and you have to hear, what's coming next, and just all sorts of good vibe material that we've come to expect and DEMAND from Jordan over past DPP appearances! So enjoy, and be sure to check all Jordan's shows coming up too. You shall not be disappointed.

    Kaitlyn Dever • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #475

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by acting superstar KAITLYN DEVER!
    If you are unaware of Kaitlyn in your adventures through the wide world of broadcast media, prepare to make fast friends with a true great, and an absolute gem of a person at that. Kaitlyn's been putting down serious moves since childhood, including a Shakespeare stint at RADA (Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts for those pondering), and her filmography is stellar - ranging from Justified, to Dopesick, to Unbelievable, and more recently Ticket To Paradise (starring alongside Julia Roberts and George Clooney, where the cinema screen actually cracks midway through from so much gorgeous). This is a lovely chat, properly engaging and it's such a treat to hear Kaitlyn's story. OH and as Pip hints at in the intro, prepare for a Kaitlyn fact that will blow yer mind. She casually peppers it in there but thankfully Pip mashes on the brakes and reverses and double takes seamlessly. Enjoy! You shall!

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by director TOM GEORGE!
    The second in a two part podcast mini series I guess you could call it, where Pip catches up with one of the people immediately involved with the murder mystery See How They Run. It also happens that the two people in said mini podcast series were ALSO immediately involved with This Country - a mockumentary of which Pip is a card-carrying superfan of. This is a Friday bonus episode featuring director Tom, who goes into a ton of the awesome behind the scenes business in creating This Country and See How They Run, as well as his past and future, and so much more - I mean if you like anything mentioned in this writeup you'll be listening already so I'll let you crack on. Enjoy!

    Charlie Cooper • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #473

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by actor and writer extraordinaire CHARLIE COOPER!
    A long awaited one right here, as long term listeners will already be aware of how big a fan Pip is of This Country... Charlie was one of those responsible for the whole thing (along with his sister Daisy May), but obviously NOT ONLY that... As you'll hear, there's a ton going on with Charlie, including a starring role in See How They Run alongside some insanely great acting talent (none of which is lost on him), and together he and Pip cover all things fantasy football-style casting, the Tom George comfort animal, the process of ideas and realising them, refining scripts on the go, working with Daisy and Tom, his roles in Stath Lets Flats and Avenue 5 (in front of the camera or in the writers room), and everything else. A deep one which covers the fun of it all alongside the hard work involved. Enjoy!

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by director BABAK ANVARI!
    See Wednesday's episode for the George side of things but this is the other side of the camera right here! Pip and Babak unexpectedly go back a way, as you'll hear up top on this episode, and from then on it's all about Babak - from their surprise meet at Wireless around 2008, to his background in film assisting with the editor's mind of it all, short films, his film Under The Shadow, childhood in Iran and adulthood in the UK, the masochism involved in film making and a huge amount more. The perfect accompaniment to Wednesday's goodness! Enjoy.

    George MacKay • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #471

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by UK acting hero GEORGE MACKAY!
    A brilliant chat with one of the stars of the excellent 'I Came By', which is available to your ears and eyes right now in your local [indie] cinema and Netflix! He and Pip share some interesting pinpoints, in a real and cinematic sense, but also connect on the greater art of acting, film making and this whole life thing in general. Street art, starts and ends of characters, deeper revelations in the characters worlds, social media and the beauty of not being there for it, performance, osmosis learning, context clues for acting and actors and deciding what to take on board himself, industry parents and how he got into the whole thing... Awesome stuff, and look for the bonus ep on Friday!

Arsenal Lover ,

Great conversations

I love the honesty with which Pip does this podcast. He tells you at the start that ratings are how he gets revenue and is able to do this for us for free, no hidden agendas . The pod is unedited and is a rolling coversation from someone who has done research into his guest as well as being genuinely interested in them. always catches me out when he says we are at the one hour mark so we better start wrappjng things up. It only feels like ten minutes to me.

Add it to your listening list

This pod was a thought provoking heart wrenching listen. Your writing had meaning for him and talking to you helped him I’m quite sure. Thank you.
