    We.Were.Lizards. (Part 2) • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #421

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by the entire We Are Lizards crew for the conclusion!

    (this is the concluding part of a 2 part special, so if you haven’t heard part 1, now would be a great time to catch up!)
    What is We.Are.Lizards, you ask? What, are you kidding me right now? Just playing. For the uninitiated, We.Are.Lizards is the legendary club night founded, developed and evolved by Pip and the whole entourage right here. It took place in the Book Club in Shoreditch, featuring the resident cast here but also a splendid selection of very special guests who you will surely be aware of… Zane Lowe, DJ Yoda, Don Letts, Lindy Layton, ah come on, so many more. But as with most regular club nights, to many it became a high point of the month, a family, dare I say a home, but also a meeting point and proper hot spot for so many people as well. It was always well attended, staffed, and co-ordinated, and the behind the scenes life is as fascinating and awesome as the on the scene one. So please, get yourself appropriately prepared for a glimpse into a brilliant club night, and hear the origin story from the people who made it (aside from the punters of course!) - PART 2 OF 2!

    Irvine Welsh • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #420

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by Leith’s finest, the amazing writer IRVINE WELSH!

    There is no doubt you are familiar with Irvine’s work - maybe you’re a deep diver and know all the novels and work he’s been involved in, or maybe you’ve seen Trainspotting and that’s all. Well, either way, that’s awesome because now’s your chance to get even better acquainted with him as he joins Pip for a chat for us all to enjoy! It’s a goody of course, as Irvine goes into a lot of bits and pieces including the majesty of Edinburgh, his Leith upbringings, fame and dipping in and out of it, storytelling and how it got into his system from an early age, going from music to writing, audiences being more capable of understanding accents and dialect than some media think, social media and more - of course, including Trainspotting and his new series Crime.

    Liam Williams • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #419

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by comedian, writer and actor LIAM WILLIAMS!

    A very cool episode right here as we hear Pip and Liam basically meet for the very first time, which is a nice touch! Oh and respect to Alex Beardall by the way, whoever he is. A conversation full of value-packed and rich tangents, from the barber-shop setlist, creative beginnings, Fringe origins (not barber related, that one), intense injuries that would ironically stop one from standing up, Youtubers and vloggers, nostalgia, class, universal basic income, Footlights and Cambridge Uni, old teachers, Ladhood, Pls Like and everything else that falls within these Venn diagrams. Very wide ranging and organic and very entertaining for your weekly DPP fix. Enjoy!

    Katy Wix • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #418

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by brilliant actor, writer and author KATY WIX!

    A really engaging and honest check in about so much on the whole, but with a ton which will certainly appeal to the writers out there on account of the really useful process and practice thoughts. Of course it’s not all about that, but it’s very cool to get an insight into what went into Katy’s book ‘Delicacy - A Memoir About Cake & Death’. Among other ace tangents, Katy and Pip cover awkward coughing, finding beauty in the details, giving self-permission to focus on the personal details, death and grief, cathartis and therapy through writing, time management and fitting much into not much, magical Cardiff beginnings and acting alongside Steve Coogan in full Alan Partridge mode, and on Stath Lets Flats! Refreshing and inspiring. Enjoy!

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by acting treasure DANIEL MAYS!

    A seemingly long overdue catchup in session right here, as Pip and Daniel talk shop and chop it up like old acting mates in a delightful and wide ranging episode. Daniel’s been busy for years, and chances are you will be familiar with him from more than Line Of Duty, but if not - as ever, the Distraction Pieces Podcast will steer you right on your path to familiarity, as Daniel breaks it down about film sets during covid times, unions and the crucial world behind the camera, DPP spiritual father Stephen Graham (aka - in this case - Cilla Black), process and nuances in acting, his filmography and television spots including Temple, Red Riding, Shifty, Line Of Duty of course and all that’s ahead. Lovely stuff! Enjoy.
