#TSP104 - Art Malik

October 31, 2019

How you getting on TSP listeners? I hope you're all well and good this week. We've got a recording of a live show for you this week. A couple of weeks back, we went down to the York Theatre Royal and had a wonderful evening with a bunch of lovely people. The night was opened by Salfordian wordsmith JB Barrington and we've picked a few of his poems to open this episode as well (Listener discretion is advised). If you haven't heard JB's two shot podcast episode go back and search out #TSP059 and hear us have a longer chat with JB in his dining room. It's a belter. 
After JB had the crowd suitably warm, we welcomed the legendary Art Malik to the stage.

You might know Art from The Jewel In The Crown, True Lies, The Living Daylights and loads of other stuff. In this episode he talked us through the highs and lows of his career, he told us how straw boaters went down on his walks to school, he told us about Arnold, about dyslexia, about his Father and Mother and about so much more. 
He's a wonderful man and a wonderful raconteur, and we're sure you'll enjoy listening in to this live episode of the Two Shot Podcast with the majestic Art Malik.

October 24, 2019

What's happening people. It's ya boyz Two Shot Podcast back with a banger. And this week, we have the pleasure of Dermot O'Leary company. You'll know Dermot from just about everywhere; Big Brother, T4, The X-Factor, BBC Radio 2, Soccer Aid and loads, loads more. He's fast becoming the kind of broadcasting institution he references in his anecdotes of life in the corridors of Radio 2. 
We met Dermot in the basement of Maison Bertaux in Soho and got down to it. You'll hear him and Craig talk about selling his self-published crime fiction novels on his childhood estate, The Howard Cassell performance behind his new People, Just People podcast, Martin Compston: Football Manager, The Smiths, cod roe and chips and so, so much more. 
Dermot is an incredibly interested human being and his warmth and openness is totally infectious. We loved hanging out with him and we're sure you'll enjoy listening in too.

#TSP102 - Rakie Ayola

October 17, 2019

Hiyer. How are ya? It's that Two Shot Podcast time of the week again and we've got a right lovely chat for you with the fabbo Rakie Ayola. 
Rakie is an amazing actor as those who have seen her in the acclaimed On Bear Ridge alongside Rhys Ifans can attest. You may have seen her as Hermione Granger in the West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child or way back on Holby City as nurse Kyla Tyson amongst hundreds of other television and stage roles. 
Rakie has a lovely, warm demeanour but in this chat she tells us of her fiery side and how she isn't afraid to stick up for what's right. She and Craig talk about her childhood desires to live in the Walton's house, what still needs to change in the industry, the implications of having a different surname to your mum, being in rooms when plays are occurring and how brunch time is the perfect time to put the world to rights. 
This is episode 102 of the Two Shot Podcast with Rakie Ayola.

Hi mates. Hope you're all well. 
It's episode 101 time and our guest this week is Laurie Kynaston. Laurie is a brilliant young actor currently wowing audiences in Florian Zeller's 'The Son' in London's West End. You might also have seen him in Cradle to Grave or alongside previous guest Nicola Coughlan in Derry Girls. We meet Laurie in our favourite Soho haunt Maison Bertaux, got a brew in and got down to it. As Craig mentions in his intro, Laurie is an incredibly centred young actor with a real gift of self-understanding. He and Craig talk of the magic of childhood film-making, the meditative benefits of musical minimalism, growing up in a bucolic Welsh countryside and loads more. It's a lovely episode with a lovely person. 
We hope you enjoy this episode of the Two Shot Podcast with Laurie Kynaston.

100 N/O. Not a bad innings that is it? 

Thanks for joining us this week. It's only our hundredth bloody episode. Thanks a load to everyone who's listened, shared, sponsored, recommended and generally made us feel lovely about the podcast. It's really, really appreciated. 
On to our guest... It's flipping Martin Compston. We've been talking about sitting down with Martin ever since the very first episode with his Line Of Duty co-star Vicky McClure all that time ago. It seemed very appropriate to mark our hundredth episode with this episode. 
You'll know Martin from the afore mentioned Line of Duty but also in many other hings including Monarch of the Glen, The Wee Man and Ken Loach's wonderful Sweet Sixteen. 
It's a proper good chat between mates this one, navigating through the subjects of dance-offs, pub selfy etiquette, mayonnaise revelations and loads more.
Thanks again for all the support over the past couple of years and don't forget to keep telling your pals about us. It really helps us grow.

This is episode 100 of the Two Shot Podcast, with Martin Compston.

#TSP099 - Sinead Keenan

#TSP099 - Sinead Keenan

September 26, 2019

Tonight we’re gonna party like it’s episode 99 (that loosely works doesn’t it??).

This week we’re joined by the hilarious Sinead Keenan. You might’ve seen her very recently in ITV’s Deep Water, or in BBC Three’s Being Human. Irish listeners may have seen her in RTE’s Fair City. We sat down with her in Soho and hear about the origins of her potty mouth, her grandparent’s ejection from an am-dram group for unruly behaviour, touching Mother Teresa, being listened to by an audience. Sinead is understated and self-deprecating but wickedly funny and incredibly insightful. You’ll love listening to her.

Thanks again for listening and subscribing and telling your pals about the Two Shot Podcast. We really appreciate it.

Hiyer. How goes it? Hope you're good this week. We are. We've done a load of podcast recording. And the first one we're gonna share with you is this absolute beaut featuring the incredible voice of actor Mark Strong. 
You'll know Mark from loads of stuff. You might've seen him very recently in in Sky One's Temple alongside Craig and previous TSP guest Danny Mays. He's been in loads of other stuff including Kingsman, Sherlock Holmes, Shazam, Deep State, Green Lantern, The Imitation Game, RocknRolla, Zero Dark Thirty and loads, loads more. He's a prolifically brilliant actor and a completely wonderful person. He has a calm and considered demeanour with a voice to match, which we're sure you'll thoroughly enjoy listening to. 
We sat down with Mark in a swank club in Soho and got down to it. He told us of his joy at playing football matches with unorthodox kick-off times, not regretting turning jobs down, punk bands, being without his parents as a youth, the inexact science of making films, amongst tons of other stuff. 

This is episode ninety eight of the Two Shot Podcast with Mark Strong.

Lemn recounts us with tales of his childhood, growing up in the care system, finding his people, anger and loads, loads more. It's a humorous and affecting hour or so and we're really excited to share it with you. The best-selling book that you hear mentioned in the podcast is available right now.

#TSP096 - Nicola Coughlan

September 5, 2019

What’s the story Two Shot Podcast listeners? We’re here with another podcast. It’s with Derry Girls’ superstar Nicola Coughlan. We met up with Nicola a few weeks ago now; back in the London summer. It was a really lovely afternoon so I think we eschewed our usual brews for a pint each and got down to it. We talk mad tattoos, Basquiat, Derry Girls Murals, Galway, the frustrations of academia and tonnes more.
Nicola is class. She’s an absolute whirlwind of tales and she’s mint on social media. Do your feed a favour and go and follow her on twitter. Enough with the waffle. On with the episode. This in number 96 with the absolutely ace Nicola Coughlan
