Ed Skrein [part 1 of 2] - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #94

Welcome, welcome WELCOME to the 94th episode of Distraction Pieces, an episode so uncontainably fresh it's a two parter! Come around and witness the brilliance of North London's rapper-turned-actor phenomenon mister Ed Skrein! Pure inspirational joy right here while Pip converses with Skrein ("like wine" if you were pondering) and gets unfathomably deep about Ed's insane four year ascension into the world of acting, which threw him into such situations as, oh just a little series you might know as Game Of Thrones, and cinema sureshots such as Transporter Refueled, Kill Your Friends, the Distraction Pieces favourite (in line with most of the world) Deadpool, and his early introduction into the acting scene alongside rapper/singer/director Plan B in 'Ill Manors'. All peppered with his love of hip hop and grime, and wrapped up in a perfect mantra which you should and will take with you and involve in your own life. You'll know when you hear it... Brilliant. And this is only part one... Grab part two right away!

A very fun and cosy gathering as he and Pip get to chatting about acting, the sciences behind the whole thing in all degrees of detail, his new book of poetry 'Catharse-Is', collaborating and performance and getting together to create in the same room, accents, death, and what sounds like an escape room in the studio they're recording in.

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by the fabulous comic (stage and sketch), writer and podcaster STEVIE MARTIN!A glorious comical conversation with Pip and Stevie, who is someone to keep up with in the current comedy scene for real. You can actually make a start on that this year if you're in Edinburgh at the Fringe so be alert for that! Stevie made a huge name around the pandemical times via some inspired and hilarious sketch work (often in collaboration with the awesome Lola-Rose Maxwell), but it was more like a natural phenomenon that was waiting to happen. Stevie's been on the grind for a while now and this chat hints at the hard work involved, including building of audiences, podcasting, Fringe madness, journalism, sketch writing and directing, the online forest, ad work, ComComPod, and so much more. Truly enjoyable, catch up with Stevie and enjoy!PIP'S PATREON PAGE if you're of a supporting natureINSTAGRAMSTEVIE LINKS & GIGSYOUTUBENOBODY PANIC PODCASTSTEVIE ON COMCOMPODPIPSTARTER for AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTYSPEECH DEVELOPMENT WEBSTOREPIP TWITCH • (music stuff)PIP INSTAGRAMPIP TWITTERPIP PATREONPIP IMDBPOD BIBLE

Yeah that sounds fine to me… But yeah, everything from then to now, including what she is doing THIS VERY MOMENT, and by that of course I mean starring in the simultaneously hilariously funny and brutally honest Feel Good (well, coming in March), which looks set to blow up worldwide. So expect to hear it all from how to view the series (best served binged), the weirdness of editing trailers, getting the correct audience, Canada (Oh Canada), the process of getting a set together, Mae the character and Mae the person, sex scenes and writing a proudly LGBT show, humanising addition, the casting process, digging deep into personal history and the transition from Canada to London but SO MUCH MORE of course.

  • 573. Jeff Nichols • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #573

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by esteemed filmmaker JEFF NICHOLS!Jeff's work speaks for itself, as a cursory glance at his IMDB page will surely reveal. In speaking for itself, this means basically that you see a list of films he's worked on that is essentially wall-to-wall bangers to put it bluntly. You'll also see connective tissue by way of powerfully great actor Michael Shannon, who is a through-line in Jeff's cinematic output. This chat is a really nice and easy back and forth with Pip and Jeff, getting into aspects of casting, storytelling, detail, adaptation and the enigmatic inside to outside world of actors. OH and also a bonus two part question from a very highly rated actor who you'll be very excited to hear from, trust us. No spoilers. Enjoy this one, it's a sureshot for anyone of a cinematic leaning, and those who appreciate the mysterious art of film making.PIP'S PATREON PAGE if you're of a supporting natureTHE BIKERIDERSIMDBMUBI LINKMIDNIGHT SPECIALPIPSTARTER for AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTYSPEECH DEVELOPMENT WEBSTOREPIP TWITCH • (music stuff)PIP INSTAGRAMPIP TWITTERPIP PATREONPIP IMDBPOD BIBLE

    HAPPY PRIDE MONTH from all at the Distraction Pieces Podcast!Every Friday there will be a Rewind episode featuring one of our friends, in case you missed it or simply want to revisit some wonderful chats...Originally broadcast Wednesday, September 9, 2015.Welcome, welcome, welcome to EPISODE 57 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by musician, comic, actor, writer and so much more, Jordan Gray aka Tall Dark Friend!This writeup is not from the original episode, but just a quick shout about Jordan. This was their first appearance on Distraction Pieces, the first of many it would turn out, and is one of the episodes you might have heard Pip cite many a time on subsequent episodes. One thing to bear in mind is that this is from almost 10 years ago at this point, and at this point in history we are now at episode 570+. So as you can well imagine, a LOT has been discussed since, much has been learned, many perspectives have been sharpened and multiplied, and we've seen a huge amount happening in the intervening years. Keep this in mind while listening, but also as Jordan has had some incredible leaps and bounds career-wise. A fascinating glimpse back in time, and definitely look back at the then future episodes with show pal Jordan!TWITTERLIVEIMDBTRANSACTIONYOUTUBESTAMPTOWNDYLAN WOODLEYGAULIER CLOWNSSPEECH DEVELOPMENT WEBSTOREPIP TWITCH • (music stuff)PIP INSTAGRAMPIP TWITTERPIP PATREONPIP IMDBPOD BIBLE

    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by comic, actor, writer and podcaster SARA BARRON!If you're a long-term DPP listener this is an episode that will just be a pure snack treat for you, and likely you will be well on your merry way listening right now without even glancing at this write-up (as you will surely know Sara and if not, her circle of pals). BUT - if you are not familiar with Sara, prepare for a very fun, open and generally 'good business' episode with someone who is well versed and sharp in all aspects of the game (be it acting, podcasting, comedy and so on). One of the main threads linking it together is TV shows, but you'll hear goodies involving comedy and Fringe shows (including the ups and downs of all that), and all the other facets of Sara's world.

    HAPPY PRIDE MONTH from all at the Distraction Pieces Podcast!Every Friday there will be a Rewind episode featuring one of our friends, in case you missed it or simply want to revisit some wonderful chats...Below is the original writeup from the episode, in this case from Wednesday, February 12, 2020.Welcome, welcome, welcome to EPISODE 311 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by activist, author and actor (all the A’s), Michael Cashman! Sorry - let me correct that - Baron Cashman CBE!An amazing meeting this week with Pip and Michael, a man whose experience and knowledge will come shining through immediately upon listening. As a founder of Stonewall (with Ian McKellen), ex-member of European Parliament, activist and former actor (those of us who grew up on Eastenders will remember him as Colin), his life has been a genuine document of ups and downs, highs and lows, but all navigated with love, conviction and positivity. His story is moving, uplifting and at times incredibly unfair, but as you will hear - from all of this, pure goodness has been his reward. Over 30 years of his journey has been underpinned by long term partner Paul, who is unfortunately no longer with us but as you’ll hear, is spoken of by Michael with such love and compassion and it’s pretty much impossible to not be stirred by - well, the whole conversation, let’s be frank. The rest is yours to discover - listen, learn, and become better acquainted with a strong force for good in the world. Welcome, Michael!His book 'One Of Them' is available now on Bloomsbury!MICHAEL on TWITTERSTONEWALLCOLIN'S FIRST APPEARANCE in EASTENDERSMICHAEL on THE INTERNETSPEECH DEVELOPMENT WEBSTOREPIP TWITCH • (music stuff)PIP INSTAGRAMPIP TWITTERPIP PATREONPIP IMDBPOD BIBLE
