    Emma Dabiri • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #430

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by inspirational author and activist EMMA DABIRI!
    Recorded at a time of political weirdness (a backdrop as old as time), illicit government parties feel pretty low down the list compared with the content of what Emma gets into with this episode. Just listen to her break down the origins of slavery in the early part, where she traces race as a construct to the roots, and charts its spread from there on. Emma’s expert delivery does not end there, for that is merely the tip of the iceberg of what is a very useful, inspiring and absolutely information-packed episode, where she also goes into her book and the inspirations behind the title, her upbringing in Ireland and Atlanta with Nigerian and Irish parents, being subliminally introduced into black politics from a very early age, and again, tracing certain elements of slavery and racism to the origins in order to better understand the impact and resonance. I mean, just listen, and read the book. And share this episode too - it’s a great one.

    Evanna Lynch • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #429

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by actor, author and activist EVANNA LYNCH!
    You may know Evanna from her role as Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter films, which is a fine place to begin. But of course Evanna is a whole universe more than an acting role, a glimpse of which you shall have here on this podcast. She catches up with Pip about essentially life after Harry Potter, which contains a huge amount of ups, but as we all know, also contains a fair share of downs. Evanna spent a period of her life dealing with an eating disorder and the many issues which that brings with it, and only through a huge amount of work has she now been able to find ways of living with it and thinking of it in a multitude of different ways. She’s gained a demonstrable clarity over what was happening, and this podcast proves what power one can gain over something that attempts to gain its own foothold. She also goes into her own activism and vegan lifestyle too. Evanna’s book ‘The Opposite Of Butterfly Hunting’ is available now from all good bookstores.
    * trigger warning - eating disorders and the knock on effects are discussed in this episode, so please take note if that's something that you're not in a place for right now.
    Just in case it's of use, here is a website with helplines, if you need assistance.

    Films Of The Year: 2021 • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #427

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    The very merriest, happiest and healthiest of new years to you all and all the very best for what's to come in 2022. Let's make it one for the books... Not that any year in previous history has not been one for the books - but still, let's do what we can. All this talk of books though is not helping the cause of todays episode - for this is the tradition as old as time itself, where your dutiful cinephile host Scroobius Pip takes you on a walk in the woods to break down his films of the year list for the past 12 months!
    As always, and I know you know this by now, but it bears repeating - this is PIPS LIST! If any films are mentioned that did not make your own personal list, or if your list contains films that aren't on Pips list, all is well. No need to grumble. This is a celebration of film which you are welcome to - not a film dis-fest or argument over what is or isn't worthy. All positive energy, all good and healthy input. Let's kick off the year on a plus and not get caught up in all that. Right? Amazing. And with that - let's get stuck in. Folks, enjoy the annual films of the year list from Pip!

    End Of Year Drunkast 2021 • Part 5

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    Looking at my Casio, it’s about that time… Folks… It’s DRUNKAST TIME! PART 5!
    You are - like it or not - VERY cordially invited to front row seats for the ongoing festive season roll through the wicked and weird wonderland of the three merry men, the three kings, the three drunkateers (not bad uh?) as they present for you the listening public, the family tradition that is the Drunkast. Drinks get drunk, gifts get gifted, and the world gets put to rights - that is to say, they get together and have a fun old time in front of us all. You might have heard these before in which case, god bless you. But if not - just be warned that it is not the usual Distraction Pieces fare here. It’s a bit rough in spots if you’re in front of the kiddos or the parents, and it does get loud. So depending on your environment, MAYBE one for the headphones. You’ll get the idea from the first few moments.
    That being said - if you’re all strapped in and ready - let this be your warning. You’re in Drunkast town now. The sheriff’s asleep. The sun’s going down. Let’s go to work.
