    How's it going TSP mates. Here we are again with your regular fix of podcast medicine. This week, it's a sit down with actor James Harkness. You might've seen James alongside Craig in The English Game on Netflix and Wild Rose or alongside previous TSP guest Martin Compston in The Nest on in BBC miniseries The Victim.
    James is a fantastic actor and has incredible knack of telling a story. He sits down with Craig and tells us his own story of growing up in The Gorbals and the shocking and violent events that changed him and his life.


    This episode does contain stories of violence. If that's not for you, please listen to another episode.

    Hiyer. How are ya? Surviving? Hope so. We’ve got another banging episode for you this week. It’s the turn of the comic, podcaster, presenter and writer, Matt Forde.


    You might know Matt from his Party Political Podcast. He’s a proper podcasting OG, starting way back in 2013 when TSP was but a glint in our eyes. You might know him from The Fringe. He’s an Edinburgh Festival stalwart with hundreds of shows under his belt. You might know him from talkSPORT where he broadcasts with Jon Richardson. Matt’s done a load and he’s still got a zeal for life that is totally infectious.
    This is brilliant hour or so where Craig and Matt discuss football, balancing home life with life on the road, Edinburgh survival tactics, gauging audiences, getting into politics and loads, loads more.


    It’s episode 125 of the Two Shot Podcast with the hilarious Matt Forde.

Fascinating stories of becoming

Compelling real life stories of how actors, writers, or musicians became drawn to their creative world and remain active in it. Even if the guest artist isn’t familiar to me, the episodes always draw me in. Craig Parkinson does a fantastic job getting conversations to flow naturally. Often wish the show went on a bit longer and always worth listening.

Great interviews with my favs

Vicky McClure and Jodie Whittaker interviews got me in as I love these ladies work. Now I’m hooked. Great podcast. I don’t know a lot of the guests but always interesting. Love the accents 😊

Mo Moshaty ,

Killer podcast, incredibly relatable.

Late to discovering the podcast and I’ve skipped around a bit, but every episode is a gem. Completely honest and endearing with moments of sheer hilarity. The transparency of Craig and the guest’s journeys really makes it amazing listening and entirely relatable.
