Saul Williams & Anisia Uzeyman • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #502

Ep. 502

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!

This week Pip is joined by the duo of incredible poet and filmmaker SAUL WILLIAMS and stellar actor and playwright ANISIA UZEYMAN!


Saul is back on the Distraction Pieces couch for his second appearance in the show's history (first time was incredible), and as you can well imagine, you're in for treats galore. Not only that, you can double up on said treats by adding the wonderful Anisia Uzeyman into the mix, as the two drop science in an orderly fashion! A huge amount of perspective, viewpoint and opinion which you will definitely enjoy being in on, but also you'll hear about their film Neptune Frost. If you haven't seen or heard about the film, for goodness sake look at the trailer for some context - it's incredible, and will give a perfect foundation for ths chat with the makers. Or better yet - watch the film. Fans of Saul will heavily appreciate this, and if you're familiar with the work of Anisia you'll love it. And all rounded up with some glorious hip hop anecdotery in case you forgot who you were dealing with here. 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!PIP'S PATREON PAGE if you're of a supporting natureSPEECH 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 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.PIP'S PATREON PAGE if you're of a supporting natureONLINEINSTAGRAMTWITTERBANDCAMPPATREONROOTS SPECIALTY YOGA (US)CENTRED SPIRIT YOGA (UK)SPEECH DEVELOPMENT WEBSTOREPIP TWITCH • (music stuff)PIP INSTAGRAMPIP TWITTERPIP PATREONPIP IMDBPOD BIBLE
  • 561. Bobby Vylan • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #561

    01:06:31
    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.

    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.PIP'S PATREON PAGE if you're of a supporting natureLOKIHIS HOUSELOVECRAFT COUNTRYIMDBINSTAGRAMSPEECH DEVELOPMENT WEBSTOREPIP TWITCH • (music stuff)PIP INSTAGRAMPIP TWITTERPIP PATREONPIP IMDBPOD BIBLE

    01:08:05
    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.

  • 558. John Pointing • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #558

    01:12:06
    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by the actor writer comic multi-hyphen rocking legend that is JOHN POINTING!A wonderful catch up with two people that get along famously and always have very entertaining chats, which certainly bodes well for a podcast episode of people talking! John is a welcome friend of the podcast, who has been sighted previously with writing and show pal Jack Rooke, and joins Pip and therefore us all for a warm fireside chat which goes into so much that's happening and has happened. From spoken word and poetry and the many intricate levels of interest within, to shows he's worked on and is working on, to Chattabix and the crew over there, to flying foxes and travels abroad, to Sky and TV platforms, and so much else. Even if you don't know who John is, this is a great episode if you want a really easy hang with two awesome people.

  • 557. TV Shows Of The Year 2023 (w/ John Harris & Joel Grove) • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #557

    01:10:22
    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!Bonus time as Pip makes the pyramid of power with fellow podcasters JOHN & JOEL for the TV SHOWS OF THE YEAR!* Succession spoiler around 27m - I've added a mini jingle to let you know when... It's about 2-3 minutes long to be on the safe side so BE WARNED if you've yet to see season 4...(Producer Buddy here - I've recklessly recycled a previous writeup for this one because my original is still entirely apt - dates have changed for obvious reasons but otherwise - enjoy the timewarp!)Another delightful end of year TV roundup from three people who truly know and care about their televisual diet. These are names you can trust, folks. You might know John and Joel from their own film podcast called Dream Factory (the world's greatest user-generated movie creation podcast), which Pip is a true fan of and contributor to, but if not, here is your chance to get to know them and become fast friends! This podcast goes appropriately deep into the television shows of the year in a hugely positive way, but of course you'll hear about some of the trials and tribulations of being such big devourers of content - the endless options of platforms, the accessibility of them all, and everything else... But really it's a perfect way to get up to speed on the things you might have missed, and also hear people chat about the shows that we all loved throughout the year. Who knows what 2024 has in store for us... But really - who cares? This is 2023 right here!

  • 556. Gareth Edwards • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #556

    01:03:37
    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by the incredible film maker and director GARETH EDWARDS!Gareth is responsible for some of the most visually impressive movies in recent memory, and his story stems from creating lo-fi special effects on a consumer-grade bedroom PC. You've llikely seen the recent 'The Creator', and maybe you were in on the ground floor with 'Monsters', but Gareth has a huge amount of productions to his name, many of which come up in this chat. A chat which covers loads of ground - his younger days film interests propelled by his parents, sci fi analogies and parables, respecting classics as you get older, big companies following his lead, unique budgeting attitudes, the Peter Jackson technique, the problem with 'pre-vis', and so much more. The question is, will it make Ryan jealous? Find out more inside! Enjoy.

  • 555. Peter Capaldi • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #555

    56:59
    Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!This week Pip is joined by one of Scotland's finest, the acting heavyweight that is PETER CAPALDI!Depending on where you caught Peter on his timeline, you may know him as Malcolm Tucker, Dr Who, or even Oldsen if you've seen Local Hero. Point is - Peter's been busy for decades, and continues to be so. He's also an awesome hang, as you will find out as Pip gets a good hour or so in his company. They get into all sorts, including of course the roles and acting experiences, but also the wide world of culture wars and nonsence arguments, problems with leadership, maintaining good vibes on set, London as a crime backdrop, the greatness of Glasgow, Lewis Capaldi and his relation to him, making diorama studios as a kid, and the hand of destiny in his acting career. NOT avoiding the hypetrain for the show brought to you by he and his wife, Criminal Record on Apple TV! So much to enjoy. Better step to it.PIP'S PATREON PAGE if you're of a supporting natureIMDBINSTAGRAMTARDIS WIKIDOCTOR WHOCRIMINAL RECORDTHE THICK OF ITSPEECH DEVELOPMENT WEBSTOREPIP TWITCH • (music stuff)PIP INSTAGRAMPIP TWITTERPIP PATREONPIP IMDBPOD BIBLE
