    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by return awesome guest, comic, podcaster and author SOFIE HAGEN!
    A fantastic meeting of minds for second time round, as Pip catches up with Sofie to talk about all things that have happened since the first go around! Although it's very fair to say that a good amount of chat is devoted to their new book 'Will I Ever Have Sex Again?', which is some essential reading for a huge amount of people. More people than Sofie initially thought, in fact. So expect some goodness including social expectations, writing a book on a subject that you don't see books about, messy relationships, gender and sexuality and 'the club'. You'll get it. Enjoy!

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by YOU! The listeners... It's an April 2024 edition of ASK PIP!
    I wouldn't dare blow the spot on what you're about to hear BUT - just so you're aware of what zones might get a look-in, you can expect to hear topics including: actor pay and how much some get, teacakes vs hot cross buns, casting historically, Shogun, The Scroobius and how 2024 could see the Summer Of Scroobius (for quick reference for the drinkers among you, it's Pepsi Max mixed with Slingsbury Gin), hot sandwiches, and MCCS Superspies. It's like a solo sober Drunkcast. ENJOY!

    B. Dolan • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #562

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by friend and comrade in music and life, B. DOLAN!
    You will have surely heard if not every appearance from B on here, then at least the previous one which went into what life has looked like for him since the pandemic. In a nutshell, it's been a period of immense and continued re-invention and almost re-introduction to the world at large, coming out of surgery and therapy which was necessary to avoid life changing injury. Chances are that a lot of you will know B from rap music and tours over the years, and a lot might know him from Twitch, but either way (and if neither, too!), you're in for a sureshot as he and Pip catch up on life, music, album making, tours and how that looks these days, yoga, the world itself on the whole, and outlooks. Enjoy, and peep the rest of the of the past appearances too - it's a hell of an arc.

    Bobby Vylan • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #561

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by the positive ray of musical light that is BOBBY VYLAN!
    Speaking of rays of light, the Bobby Vylan album 'Humble As The Sun' comes out on April 5th, so keep that on your agenda. As you know with Distraction Pieces and the work Pip does / has done, the conversations usually dip in and out of music and acting (but not limited too, of course) - and this week, we have a wonderful chat with Bobby of the band of the same name, which goes into the music but also into the very soil from which the music comes... The physical, political and mental landscape, the world around us, and where we're all going. A fascinating conversation which will be of immediate interest to BV fans but also anyone and everyone who is yet to become acquainted. And for those folks, this is the perfect way in. ENJOY!

    Wunmi Mosaku • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #560

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by UK acting treasure WUNMI MOSAKU!
    Proper acting business right here with this episode - this is total nectar for those who appreciate the visual arts and the world of TV and cinema. Wunmi has been holding it down on the acting circuit for a minute, having worked through the ranks of television staples and home favourites, leading all the way up to heavyweight movie work and huge series. We're talking Marvel Comic Universe by way of Loki, for one. But you will likely have seen Wunmi in the ace Lovecraft Country, Black Mirror, or heard Wunmi in the VERY worth tracking down Scavnegers Reign. So enjoy this one - it goes to some enriching and nourishing places, and is essential listening obviously for Wunmi heads, but also those who appreciate the craft and deep chats around it.

    Manga Saint Hilare • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #559

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
    This week Pip is joined by grime great and Roll Deep affiliate MANGA SAINT HILARE!
    A lovely chat with a grime star who shows both confidence and humility at the same time, in what seems like equal amounts. A quick scan through his videos and IG will reveal that he has the skills to back it all up, and has years in the game too, as well as stories from the old days of Roll Deep and the initiation of the grime scene. Really cool stuff, going in on such topics as how it feels releasing a new album, performing and stage craft as a new parent, rhythms of life, peopke coming to shows for him and not just the music, songwriting, how grime does well in the room, energy, and being part of a self-appointed Mt. Rushmore of grime! Really fun and interesting, worthy of a listen from the most ardent grime listener to the most "what are you talking about" person. Enjoy!

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.
