#TSP068 - Jonjo O’Neill

December 13, 2018

What's good TSP listeners? Hope you're all feeling decent in these dark winter months. It's getting towards mid-December and we thought we'd invite you to snuggle down next to the podcast fire of episode 68. This week we were joined by top fella Jonjo O'Neill. Jonjo shared with us one of the most moving and spellbinding hours of podcast chat that we've ever been privy to. He's warm and candid and thoughtful and his story-telling and vocal tones are an absolute pleasure to listen to on this rollercoaster of a chat. Jonjo tells us of his life growing up in West Belfast, dealing with London life, his relationships with his parents and loads, loads more.
You might recognise Jonjo from his work in the Pinter Plays at the Pinter theatre or from the final act of the magnificent Coen Brothers film The Ballad of Buster Scruggs amongst many other things. We can't thank him enough for coming on and sharing his thoughts with us. We hope it moves, excites and fills you with as much hope as it did to us. 
Enjoy...

Here's some more information about the song Craig mentions in the intro to this week's pod. Please go and buy it when it's released on the 14th of December.

* some great UK podcasts have got together to release a brand-new Christmas single, called 'Sounds Of Christmas'
* The Podcast All-Stars include The Modern Mann, The Guilty Feminist, The Beef & Dairy Network Podcast, Answer Me This, Wanna Be, The Comedian's Comedian, The Two Shot, The Tip Off... and more!
* proceeds will go to Samuel's Charity, which helps kids living in underfunded children's wards make their lives more comfortable (The Modern Mann spoke to the charity's founder last week for episode called The Empty Seat)
* to get into the Top 40 we need around 11000 sales; Ed Sheeran's no1 last year got 85k. It's entirely possible with our combined reach.
* the Christmas charts are counted from 14th-21st Dec this year; so this is a strategic release
* a sale is better than a play: it takes 100 streams to count as a sale. That's a lot of streaming over a week... so just part with 99p and help change lives!

#TSP067 - Jenna Russell

December 6, 2018

THE COUNTDOWN HAS BEGUN! 
No, not Christmas...
You have until the 13th of December to send in your BEST OF MOMENTS OF 2018. You can send us the time codes of favourite clips and we’ll put them into our special Christmas episode and GIVE YOU a shout out.
Send em in on the socials (@twoshotpod) OR EMAIL: twoshotpod@gmail.com
BUT BEFORE ALL THAT... It’s EPISODE 67

This week Craig & Griff travelled to London for an intensive few days of recording, and first up was a blather with the incredible JENNA RUSSELL.
Craig was working in London so they took advantage of having an apartment to set up the microphones in Earls Court. After a wander to find some below average breakfast it was time to go and meet Jenna. 
If you’ve been to the theatre in the past 20 years then there’s a pretty good chance you’ll have seen the amazing Jenna (sorry, that makes her sound like a magician. She’s not).

Craig & Jenna get the kettle on, slice up some lemon drizzle and get down to the conversation.

Craig & Jenna first met 20 years ago.
Craig was woefully under qualified for his first job whereas Jenna was simply perfection. Needless to say they got on.
The conversation flows and revelations pop up as we get to know, really know, the quite wonderful human that is JENNA RUSSELL.

It was such a pleasure for us to have Jenna on and we think you’ll love this episode.
Jenna is pure class. 

Enjoy.

#TSP066 - Mandip Gill

November 29, 2018

Here we are again.

It’s Thursday and it’s episode 66.

We’re back to normal after last weeks musical moment of happiness with the fantastic Boston Uke group. Wasn’t it a lovely moment? Thanks for all the messages about that and we’re pleased it put a smile on your face and a spring in your step.

This week Craig & Producer Griff pack up the gear and head to London. Remember a while back when we sat down with The Doctor herself JODIE WHITTAKER? Well, we did promise you that we’d have more DOCTOR WHO guests coming on and of course, we didn’t want to let you down, so this week we welcome one of the Doctor’s new companions, the wonderful MANDIP GILL!!

We moved locations this week in London and Mandip came to meet us near Earl’s Court and we got the kettle on, set the mics up and hit record. 

Mandip has infectious energy and is brilliant company. We talk; growing up in Leeds, her parents and large family, grafting at the family shop and so much more. You’re gonna love this. She’s ace. It’s, once again, a brilliant conversation and we think you’ll get to hear a side of Mandip and her history that you won’t hear anywhere else. 

We really hope you enjoy.

This is episode 66 of the two shot podcast with Mandip Gill.

#TSP065 - A Bit Of Warmth On A Cold November Day.

November 22, 2018

Hello Two Shot Podcast listener people. Lovely of you to join us this week. Thank you. 

We've not got a full length chatty type episode this week, because honestly, we've run a week behind schedule. But rather than let you go without, we thought we'd bless your ears with this little slice of four-stringed joyousness that Craig happened across in a hotel in Lincolnshire. It's a lovely audio vignette that we hope brings 5 minutes of respite, pleasure and calm into your week.

Can we please introduce you to "This week's guests

#TSP064 - Ralf Little

November 15, 2018

We KNOW. 

We know what you’re thinking...
“Isn’t this supposed to be an episode nattering to TASH DEMETRIOU? 
YES. IT WAS.
We had a leeeeetttlle tech problem.   
You best listen to the intro and all will be revealed. 

SO. 
Onto EPISODE 64. 

A few months back we received an invite to be involved with the first ever Manchester podcast festival and bring TSP to a live audience. 
Naturally we were extremely flattered to be asked and jumped at the chance of taking the podcast to a city we not only love but have recorded many an episode. 
Now it was time to find a suitable guest for our Manchester audience....
Who better than a home grown favourite... we managed to get in touch with RALF LITTLE and he said YES. 

We had a lovely natter and it was also a long natter. 
So much so that we’ll do a part two in 2019. 
Ralf, as we’re sure you’re aware, first came to our attention as Anthony or “Lurch” in the classic and much loved, The Royle Family. Since then Ralf has been popping up in all sorts of telly stuff and has been seen on stage at the National and Theatre Royal Bath quite recently. He’s very honest about his past and how he was perceived by certain media and also where he is now. It’s a belter and the audience reaction on the night was electric. 

We were so chuffed to have past TSP guest and friend Argh kid perform some absolute beautiful words for us to open the eve and we cannot thank him enough. He’s a class act. (Bonus audio treats coming soon for Patreon donors) Massive thanks to MANCHESTER PODCAST FESTIVAL for inviting us for their FIRST EVER FESTIVAL and also to Ralf but a HUGE THANK YOU to the incredible audience for coming out to support us.
Big love to you. 

Please enjoy. 
THIS is episode 64 of THE TWO SHOT PODCAST with RALF LITTLE.

#TSP063 - Brennan Reece

November 8, 2018

Greetings Two Shot Pod listeners. Thanks a lot for joining us this week. We've had a sit down and brew and a cake with stand-up comic Brennan Reece! 

We travelled to Ziferblat in Manchester's Northern Quarter to meet Brennan, who was an absolute joy to be around. He's a affable type of guy who commands a room and can't resist an opportunity to bring a smile to your face.

You might have seen Brennan doing his thing at the Edinburgh fringe or at one the comedy clubs he's had in stitches over the years. You might have even seen him in one of the acting roles that he's portraying since he was a wee un. 

Thanks a lot for listening. Hope you enjoy.

#TSP062 - Jacob Anderson

November 1, 2018

Spooky seasonal greetings to you all. Hope you're all doing alright.

This week on the podcast we are blessed with the company of artistic polymath Jacob Anderson; nom de plume Raleigh Ritchie. You'll have seen Jacob as Grey Worm in HBO's Game Of Thrones, alongside previous TSP guests on Broadchurch, in BBC2's Episodes, and in loads of theatrical productions. As Raleigh Ritchie, Jacob recently put out the frankly brilliant single Time In A Tree which if you haven't heard his music before is as good a place as any to start. 

Jacob is an absolute treasure. Candid and warm and humble. This episode captures him in a self-reflective mood as he shares his struggles, strifes and hopes. He's a thoroughly lovely human and we hope he captures your hearts as much as he did ours. 

Big love Jacob. 

We've just hit on - To celebrate, we're putting out this week's episode out as a full length video! We normally reserve for our Patreon helpers but we thought we'd give you all a taste.

#TSP061 - Marc Riley

October 25, 2018

It’s Thursday. It’s the podcast... 

How the devil are yer? Is it us or are these weeks zipping by? It’s episode 61 of THE TWO SHOT PODCAST and this week we head to MANCHESTER to get our podcast on with the man with no plan, MARC RILEY!!

Craig & Producer Griff headed up to the musical capital and we’re welcomed into the very lovely ZIFERBLAT on Edge Street (free tea and cake there you know?) and met Marc to natter away all things Riley. Obviously they spoke about The Fall, MES, rumours, truth, record labels, DJs and how and why he used to be known as “Lard”.

You’ll know Marc (depending on your age) as an ex-member of The Fall, a BBC RADIO ONE DJ & one half of MARK & LARD, or, as BBC RADIO 6 MUSIC DJ where Monday to Thursday he hosts his own show and picks his own favourite artists to come and play live in his studio. In recent weeks he’s had TSP favourite BILL RYDER JONES in for him. It was, of course a beautiful set from Bill. Marc has belting taste in music you know.

We have to say, Marc is cracking company and this shines throughout this episode and we can’t thank him enough for coming on and also for his support of the podcast.

By the end of this episode you’ll understand why it’s pretty much ok NOT to have a plan in life. 

We really hope you enjoy this episode. We loved meeting and chattering with Marc. He’s tip top.

Sit back, kick your shoes off and get involved. THIS IS EPISODE 61 of THE TWO SHOT PODCAST....
WITH MARC RILEY

#TSP060 - Holli Dempsey

October 18, 2018

Whattup, whattup! It's our diamond episode and have we got an absolute diamond for you. It's the wonderful actor Holli Dempsey!

You might know Holli from Ricky Gervais' Derek or from her role as Vera in Dad's Army or from her starring role in Harlots amongst loads of other ace stuff. We met Holli in our basement / dungeon recording studio at Soho's Maison Bertaux and we had a chat. A lovely, lovely chat. Holli was so honest about her upbringing and childhood and working life. It was enlightening and charming and a bit sad all at the same time. She's a fiercely strong woman with a great outlook on life and we're sure you'll love listening in to her Two Shot Podcast episode.

#TSP059 - J.B. Barrington

October 11, 2018

It's double drop week at the Two Shot Podcast and here's your second downloadable dose. It's time to ditch the prosaic and enter the lyrical world of Mr J.B. Barrington.

J.B. is a proud Salfordian who speaks his drawl with pride. A poet by trade of the performance variety. He's got stories galore and Craig and Griff went over to the East Riding of Yorkshire to commit them to tape. 

If you've seen Reverend and the Makers live recently, or Sleaford Mods, you may have seen J.B. taming the lions in the crowd. His aura and Gallagher-swagger make him the perfect warm-up act for any band worth their salt.

The podcast opens and closes with two of the blazing poems you're likely to hear on his tours. Visit the JB Barrington page to see where you can catch him next. 

Hope you enjoy the pod.
