Who is ‘Distraction Pieces’ ?


Distraction Pieces is Scroobius Pip. Well, its his podcast but it is much more about the guests rather than him. Scroobius Pip is a spoken word artist and now an actor. You may have seen him in Taboo with Tom Hardy but you may also know him from his musical collaborations with Dan Le Sac.

Whats is all about?

Its a chat between people. It isn’t a comedy podcast (although they can be funny). Also, it isn’t a political podcast (although they can be political). It isn’t for guests to shoe-horn plugs of everything they are currently doing. It is a chat. Pip’s interview style is so relaxed and I think that helps the guests feel relaxed. Sure there might talk about MMA (an interest of his, along side wrestling) but he does try to draw out interesting stories from the guest and it does often sound like you just over-hearing a conversation between two friends in a pub.

Guests have included Alan Moore, Howard Marks, James McAvoy, and Goldie.

Other bonus episodes have included interviews with his mum, Ask Pip, and the Drunkcasts.
