    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by the UK’s most notorious music making two man crew, SLEAFORD MODS!

    A great opportunity to catch them both in one place (albeit remotely), as Jason and Andrew check in with Pip about everything from then to now… Of course this includes matters pandemical, and how it affected the two musically and mentally, fitness regimes and incidental social Curb Your Enthusiasm-like moments, social media and the many varied pitfalls of it, politics and the UK’s island mentality, punk, noise, influences, anunciation and the whole rest of it… Naturally that means scratching the surface but it’s a joy to get even this far with the two. Brilliant stuff, you’ll enjoy!

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by all star comedian, host, writer and more JIMMY CARR!

    You for sure know Jimmy, for Jimmy is ubiquitous and with good reason - he’s a very funny comedian and always comes through on a panel show. He has a new book out too called Before & Laughter, which is very much a ‘get to know’ kind of book so well worth peeping. He and Pip cover a ton of ground on here too, from the difference pace of feedback loops in comedy and book writing, the trojan horse of standup in panel shows, joke analytics, the legacy of the incredible Sean Lock (RIP), life choices, comedy workouts, comparison as the thief of joy, his well publicised money issues, being a father and all kinds of life in between. Honest, interesting and very funny - enjoy.

    Andy Chambers (Born Human) • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #412

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by long term friend and founder of mental health consultancy Born Human, ANDY CHAMBERS!

    A lovely bonus edition of the podcast here as Pip and Andy kick off plotting the lineage of their friendship before our ears, which is a lovely thing to behold and even something we can do with our own friends perhaps. In learning more about Andy, we also learn more about his organisation Born Human, which revolves around mental health in a very focused way. What’s cool about this episode is that we hear what the organisation’s ‘personality’ is through hearing from Andy, which is the perfect way to do it. Everything from rituals, loss and grief, family, birth, the minds of kids, safe spaces, post natal depression in mothers and fathers, the benefit of the walk and talk, preventative care and the Born Human podcast. A balm for your mind, which will soothe and replenish. No it’s not about skincare. Enjoy!

    Jack Thorne • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #411

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by the prolific and inspirational screenwriter JACK THORNE (Help, This Is England, His Dark Materials)!

    An exciting one for us all, not least for Pip, as we hear the two check in on all matters of the small and big screen from a unique point of view. Jack has been a part of such a lot of incredible productions, and this will be a delight not only for those who know exactly who he is, but those who are unfamiliar - the themes and topics are universal in creativity and process. From ill children, to season 2 being the best season, DPP pod godfather Stephen Graham, writing in shades of grey and occasionally black and white, fiction informed by real life, the Shane Meadows sandbox, intricacies of roles, ratings, social realism and a selection of his works from Skins, to Shameless, to Help, to This Is England, it’s a packed and awesome one.

    Tom Stade • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #410

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by the hilarious comic TOM STADE!

    Hailing from Canada, specifically Northern BC (the ‘rich mans playground’), it’s a delight to hear Tom referencing and talking on his time spent in Wolverhampton and the revelations he’s had while living in the UK. But that’s only part of the story, as Tom has a ton to share with us including how acting entered his life, The Real West Digest, hitting the UK and delivering his comedy, family times, 9-11, Soccer AM, the mystical comedy wonderland that is Edinburgh, smoking, relentless gigging, and having a good bunch of tales to tell. Discover, or become better acquainted with, Tom Stade!

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by the amazing actor, comic and writer SOPHIE WILLAN!

    …also known as Bafta Award winning Sophie Willan! Sophie’s running things right now, not only on account of her fantastic and unique series Alma’s Not Normal, but through pure hard work and an individual, very real eye through which she filters what’s happening out there. She and Pip get into all of it, including her work on The Circle, being mates with Jayde Adams, Bolton, shining light on the past and honoring real people from real places, working class backgrounds, being introduced to John Waters and Mike Leigh through her grandma, past job, Rob Parker, going against ‘safe’ lineups in casts, charity work and so much more besides - if you don’t know Sophie, prepare to make a new pal right here.
