    Hello mates. Hope all is well in your worlds. We've got a great episode for you this week with actress, director and author Rosie Day. Rosie's been on our screens since she was tiny. You might know her from Outlander, Hope and Glory, as a youth in Bernard's Watch or the stage adaptation of her book Teenage Armageddon.
    She and Craig sat down for a real life chat (no zoom - yussss!) and chatted about developing and relinquishing a "good girl" complex, being forever seventeen, being bullied for playing an onscreen bully and her journey to being a writer.
    Its a really lovely episode which we're sure you'll adore.
    This is series ten, episode eight of the Two Shot Podcast with Rosie Day.

    Helen Behan

    Hiyer mates. Happy Thursday. We've got an absolute banger for you this week. It's a chat with the completely brilliant Helen Behan.
    You might've seen her acting in Shane Meadows' 'This Is England' franchise or more recently in 'The Virtues' alongside Stephen Graham and previous TSP guest Niamh Algar. The unusual pathway into her acting career is a brilliant story that she tells with incredible aplomb.
    Helen is great craic. She joined Craig over zoom on a woozy, post-pub Sunday morning but that didn't diminish her charm and warmth. They talk improv, imposters, arseholes, pubs, methods, and loads, loads more. It's an episode we're dead excited for you to hear.
    This is series ten, episode seven of the Two Shot Podcast with Helen Behan.

    Hiyer everyone. Hope you haven’t melted, spontaneously combusted or otherwise been adversely affected by the waves of heat. Anyway, get the kettle on, have one of those brews that actually cool you down, and have a listen to this week's TSP. This week’s guest is the fantastic actress Aisling Loftus.
    You might know Aisling from ITV’s Mr Selfridge, the BBC’s War & Peace, Sky's The Midwich Cockoos amongst loads of other ace stuff. Aisling is a joy; straight-talking, honest, considered, open and with a deep love of her nearest and dearest. She and Craig discuss support networks, eating disorders and the effects they have, big Irish families, motherhood, Nottingham, Workshop, adult company, and the absolute joy of being well directed. You'll love it.

Progandra B ,

Refreshing.

Ive just discovered podcasts and started to listen to this series from the start. I like how it’s so down to earth, and Craig sounds genuinely interested in his guests. The flow is also nice as it’s not rushed with trying to get certain topics in, it’s seems more of a natural chat. I don’t do any social media so wanted to post a review here. As well as going with a good cuppa it’s also good whilst driving, walking, cleaning (yuk) , and with headphones whilst ignoring the world. Thank you

Good stuff

Lots of interesting, entertaining, in-depth interviews with actors & other creatives. Big back catalogue to delve into. If you’re in a position to, support them on patreon so we can get plenty more to come! 😊

New to the podcast

I’m new to this podcast and have a lot of catching up to do. It’s so refreshing that you are interviewing different guests rather than the same ones who pop up everywhere. Keep up the good work Craig.
