    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by the superb director JACK SPRING!
    A great catchup with Pip and Jack as they get all the way into the film making craft, covering almost every aspect from the journey into it all, to learning the ropes on the business side, funding, casting, all of that good stuff as well as all the extra bits and pieces you would want to hear and know about. A perfect chance to get to know Jack better, and the perfect chance to hear more about his film Three Day Millionaire too, which sounds incredible... Enjoy!

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by TV and film director behind almost everything MARK MYLOD!
    An amazing chat with someone who began their storied career working on some cornerstone shows in BBC history like Grandstand, Eastenders and Blue Peter but ALSO Maid Marian which was a huge deal for those of us of a certain age, let's say... Anyway - through a series of chess moves on the board of the industry he currently finds himself in an incredible position working on some true TV greats like Succession and Game Of Thrones to name but two - but also his own film The Menu, which you'll find in cinemas currently (at time of typing). A wide ranging and honest chat but with a focus on the topic at hand, which gives so much room for hearing the tale of Mark and his years in the game. It makes for a really fascinating chat which will vibrate with everyone and anyone who appreciates their media, on the small or big screen. Or massive screen at home. However you get down.

    Maisie Adam • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #483

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by the brilliant and hilarious comic MAISIE ADAM!
    A delightful episode which goes into so much in not that long of a time, but certainly enough to get you fully up to speed on all things Maisie. So much ground is covered, including the Brixton Academy level of popularity, the cost of living crisis not being lost on her in relation to people turning up at shows, a misleading non-recommendation for 80's Melbourne passed on from her dad, the shifting sands of the pandemic timeline, Pip guesting on her podcast decades ago in 2019, growing up in a dip, old stories from the past, auditioning and the road to acting which became the road to comedy, surprise Southend appearances from hip hop royalty, and what's happening now. Awesome stuff. Do not let this one pass you by, team.

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by the hilarious and great comic ALISTAIR GREEN!
    You could also add actor to that list of accolades as Alistair is busy in front of the camera too, as you will hear. Kicking off with heavy metal nights and the tour t-shirt, it's a fun slip n' slide down the road of tangents as Pip and Al get down to the business of social media and rolling news being too quick for a comic hot take, making videos, creative process, making situations into comedy, the Prince Charles Cinema screening of his videos as a film (and the wonder of the cinema itself), conspiranoia, Alan Partridge and trying to resist goofing while a take is in progress, Ted Lasso and tons more. Awesome stuff and definitely one for Al heads and those who are yet familiar - much fun! Enjoy.

    Adam Kay • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #481

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by the multi-hyphenate comic, author and doctor ADAM KAY!
    Well maybe doctor in the 'present' tense might not be strictly true but it's a nice trio right there. A really great chat with Adam and Pip as they get deep into the vault of doctoring and the world of medicine. But with a definite truth-telling angle - not to dish the dirt by any means, but really to help the public understand more the position that those working in healthcare are in. It can often be misrepresented very efficiently, so it's heartening to hear the side of it that we're not always exposed to. Adam delivers his recollections with a delightful world weariness that is so endearing and interesting, and it's awesome to hear about what he's been up to in the writing world as well as all the rest. I mean, the term "multi hyphenate" is thrown around SO recklessly these days... Enjoy!

    Nikesh Patel • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #480

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by the excellent actor NIKESH PATEL!
    A great ep with a nice instant camaraderie from the opening moments onwards, which serves as a lovely antidote to otherwise maddening times in the local and global sense. Nikesh has been in front of the camera for a minute, and leaving a trail of fans, happy faces and more of that camaraderie at the end of each project - you will have seen him on variously sized screens over the years, but now's the time to hear his story from the origin to the present. And let's just say that this episode was spiritually overseen by Guz Khan.

Give it a go

You won't regret it. The conversations go in some surprising directions at times and Pip's enthiusiasm for having an open conversation shines through.
