    Inbetweeners Special w/Joe & Simon • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #487

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by Inbetweeners heroes and OGs JOE THOMAS & SIMON BIRD!
    This bonus episode is in partnership with All 4, featuring Joe Thomas and Simon Bird from The Inbetweeners.
    Pip has been circling these two for a good while now, although Simon has appeared on DPP all those years ago in 2020 - but as a duo, the lads come correct and you know it's a great one. You of course know them from The Inbetweeners, in small and big screen variants, as well as their individual work of which all of the original gang have developed through the years, but here's a great chance to check in with Joe & Simon with a new fresh perspective of their work back in the day. A very entertaining chat with ace backstage gossip and all of that good old fashioned self deprecating (and straight up deprecating!) charm that you know from them. Listen and enjoy!
    You can stream The Inbetweeners and many more on All 4.

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by MMA superhero JOHN HATHAWAY!
    A truly great chat with Pip and John, and while you may see the initials M, followed by an M, and then an A, in the above description, this isn't necessarily one strictly for the UFC heads. Although you'll surely have a great time if you ARE one. John's been through a whole lot in his journey to perfection, and as you'll hear not every pro fighter is immune to human issues. He had a major battle with some internal maladies which you'll hear about in a very tactful way, but managed to navigate through with grace and made a major comeback. But as you'll also hear, there's some huge stories to be told and as you'll expect, Pip's on his game with this one. Enjoy!

    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!

    Mark Mylod • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #484

    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.

    Alistair Green • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #482

    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.

exbreezyboy ,

phenomenal podcast

listen to this every week. great podcast! Come accross some really interesting people through this show. Paricularly love how hes beens promoting Drug education & debate in prohibition! loving your work! thanks pip!

Johna p ,

Could be great if he stopped interrupting the flow

Pip come across as a genuine and passionate guy and has great guests - so I really wish him continued success.

However! As a listener it’s increasing frustrating to hear him continually interrupting his guests mid sentence with an overly long quasi statement/question that often fizzles out to nothing with a ‘so what are your thoughts on that then?’

Listening to Adam Buxton interview Pip and then vice-versa really brought home the difference in their interviewing abilities. Buxton really knows how to let an interview flow.

Anyhow, without that gripe this would be amongst the best podcasts ever so I hope at least that Pip starts editing his recordings

paaaadge ,

A much needed distraction.

Great. Listened to Pip's music for years but new to his podcasts. Since discovering, I have not been able to stop listening. Truly solidifies Pip as a wonderful creative talent.
