    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    What better way to follow last episode’s acting aceness than with another UK treasure, yes indeed Distraction Pieces famsquad it is the brilliant TARON EGERTON!

    As with so many of these episodes featuring the UK acting crew, there is an over-riding spiritual link by way of Stephen Graham, so props must be given to him first off! This one feels like another ‘long time coming’ episode, where it was just a matter of time and arrangements to lock it in. Naturally there’s lockdown talk up top, which is always fascinating as we all want to know how it’s been affecting each other - Taron’s found himself in Wales, which brings us to his upbringing (including Liverpool), and from then on you can expect some good talk on social media, RADA and family whip-rounds for auditions, early days (not THAT long ago!) on Kingsman, lessons learned through each film, voice acting vs acting-acting, Matthew Vaughn, Dexter Fletcher, Tom Hardy, his own filmography (including Eddie The Eagle and Rocketman to name a couple), and tons more. Uplifting and inspirational - you shall enjoy!

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    The perfect actorial masterclass and relaxed chat scenario as Pip meets the glorious MAXINE PEAKE!

    Kicking things off with reflections of pandemic and lockdown times (essential to check in up top!), Pip and Maxine get into the whole acting biz and it’s a thrilling old journey - from acting itself and what it’s like being around yourself as an actor, to London fatigue and burnout, to venues in Manchester and up North, her paths and journeys, experiences at RADA, representation and diversity and how more is of utmost importance and the old fashioned character trait of ‘being Northern’. But so much more. A packed one, and one you will enjoy for certain.

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    Metalheads rejoice, as you are about to hear a properly great chat with Pip and COREY 'MF' TAYLOR of SLIPKNOT!

    While Corey may be in a relaxed and certainly not on-stage mode for the chat, that’s probably the perfect setting as we get to hear from the engaged, stoic and reflective Corey. Beginning with all things pandemic and quarantine, it’s actually the perfect place to start as a lot of his new material was recorded in a very responsible and safety conscious mode, but from there on we get to hear about his teen songwritings, fearlessness, collaboration processes overseas, filling up notebooks, depression bouts and mental health, and US politics - but all with a very keen eye on the positive. So it’s a great inspiration for those who are feeling it right now. Enjoy Corey!

    One for not only the hip hop heads but also the cookery crew as Pip gets deep in the rap kitchen with ACTION BRONSON!

    There’s no doubt about it, Action has done a ton in the past decade and by the looks of it all, had a goddamn blast while doing it. But he’s always kept a very decent squad around him and stayed on track and focused, as you can tell by his insane output and varied resumé. Here’s a chance to catch up with dude as he talks over the internet to Pip about it all - working out, old skool gaming, pandemic UFC, how he got into rap music and the cassette culture that came along with it, New York, an alternate universe chef career, features with rappers and being in the studio with some of the greatest, eating well, knocking humbleness on the head, acting in a Scorcese film, being behind a show from concept to credits and MAD amounts more in between. Get to know Action Bronson!

    A grime spectacular right here for you this week by way of a full length chat with GHETTS!

    “I cannot act as someone’s time machine…”

Tons going on. GO IN!

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    Please be very welcome to take your seats for a very great chat with Pip and the fantastically funny comic FERN BRADY!

    Aceness from the get go, with up-top talk about being heckled in Essex (a tale as old as time), thoughts on the Fringe (Edinburgh, but doevtails nicely with actual hairdresser chat later on), selling out and advertising and what all of that means, judging other artists and comics for selling the wares of themselves or others, the broad discussion of sex work and the many intricacies and flipsides of coins within, journalism and her possible entry into the world (which thankfully switched, going on her experiences in there), accents, her podcast, and MORE including - yes, this comes up like one hour in - lockdown thoughts! Imagine that. How far we have come. ENJOY!
