    Amar Chadha-Patel • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #498

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by acting superhero AMAR CHADHA-PATEL!
    Hopefully you will have encountered Disney+'s 'Willow' by now (previously known as the enigmatic 'UNTITLED DISNEYPLUS PROJECT'), or perhaps even the movie 'Dashcam' - if not, and you're yet to become familiar with Amar, this is a wonderful opportunity to make a fast friend and discover someone who you'll certainly want to keep up on... This is an awesome chat with Pip and Amar, which covers his beginnings working with the All Saints brand and hustling music videos, leading to Bestival projects at which he made first contact with Pip, set design and direction, various intricate tax issues and Twitter storms, process, enjoyment and happiness on set, and how to mature within a complex and unique industry. You'll pick up some true gems along the way but more importantly, hear an uninterrupted chat which you'll thoroughly enjoy. Get yourself started!

    End Of Year Drunkast w/ Chris & Stu 2022 • Part 5

    End Of Year Drunkast w/ Chris & Stu 2022 • Part 5

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    Friends, colleagues, contemporaries... The time has come once more. That time is DRUNKAST TIME! PART 5!
    Some of you will legitimately have been waiting all year for this one. I GET IT. It's understandable. What other times of year do you get to hear Pip, Chris and Stu get together and drink and shout and cry and solve the world's problems and generally create podcast gold? Exactly. It is a time to be treasured, honoured, and respected. So with that in mind, please relax and get ready to enjoy a fifth of the Drunkast series for the year 2022 (recorded in 2023, for clarity). You shall enjoy.
    As with ALL previous Drunkasts, you know the deal - the occasional coarse word or two, sometimes strung together for good measure, and material that you might not wanna blast out of the car stereo with those of a sensitive nature. Basically, if you or anyone else you're with is new to Distraction Pieces, consider kicking things off with a guest-led episode to acclimatise! This is like dunking yourself in the sea in January, nawmean? So bear that in mind. Otherwise - come on, you know what you're doing! Big love from all at Distraction Pieces.

One of the best podcasts out there

Consistently strong guest list with a host who genuinely seems interested in the people he’s speaking to. These aren’t interviews, they’re conversations, and the difference is notable in a positive way. 10/10

Fantastic converstaions with an eclectic lineup of guests

I've been listening to the Distraction Pieces podcast for over a year now, and have yet to get bored with an episode. While listeining to each new episode, I also worked my way back through all the past episodes. I LOVE the eclectic array of guests that Scroobius Pip gets on, and that the episodes cover the silly (check out the Drunkasts) to the serious (check out the episodes on homelessness, human trafficking, etc), and everything in between. Mostly I love listening to interesting people talk about their journey pursuing their passion, it's always inspiring and a good reminder to me to do what I love.

Interesting but...

The host is way too self-involved. He does not like to share the spotlight and constantly talks over the guests. It’s too bad because the conversations are absolutely fascinating.
