#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.

#TSP058 - Nick Payne

October 9, 2018

DO NOT ADJUST YOUR FEED.
Yep. This is THE TWO SHOT PODCAST.
No. It’s not Thursday. 

We thought we’d do a TWO EPISODE TWO SHOT PODCAST WEEK! 
Why? Why not. Let’s kick it off shall we?

This week we travel to London to meet the incredible writer NICK PAYNE. 
Maybe you’ve seen Nick’s plays over the years at the Bush theatre, The Donmar Warehouse, perhaps the Royal court. Maybe even on Broadway. Well, lucky you if you have cos he’s a class writer. Recently you may have been glued to BBC1 watching his series WANDERLUST that’s coming to an end very soon. Or maybe you’re one of those people who’s saying it’s “filth” or “I didn’t pay my TV licence for this!” Well, it’s always good to get a reaction eh?
If you haven’t seen it THEN DO. IT'S CLASS!!
Catch it all on BBC iplayer in the uk and soon to be on NETFLIX. 
Craig sat down with Nick in London and that’s where they began the natter. Are we a nation of prudes? Do people jump on the bandwagon to complain about so-called filth without having seen it? They discuss so much more to about what makes Nick tick and the differences between writing for theatre and the pressures of creating a full series for TV. 
It’s a cracking natter and we’ll sure you agree that Nick is great company...

Just to say that this episode was recorded solo as Producer Griff was up north but the difference in sound is down to Craig and his Zoom H5 which doesn’t have the slickness as norm but we know that after 10mins or so your ears will adjust and you’ll be grand.

Enjoy.

This is episode 58 of the Two Shot Podcast with Nick Payne.

#TSP057 - Jodie Whittaker

October 4, 2018

IT'S THURSDAY... IT'S THE PODCAST...

Well, since we announced on Sunday who was joining us, there’s been a real buzz. We don’t blame you. We were thrilled to bits to sit down with Jodie in our podcast Soho base that is MAISON BETAUX and got the tea in (and also a scone). Or a scon. Or even a scurn (that’ll make sense soon) and we got right into it. 

Jodie has been proper busy speaking to all sorts of press in the countdown to the DR WHO launch in Sheffield but she made time to come and meet Craig & Griff and have a proper natter. 
Jodie is, as you’ll hear, a breath of fresh air. She’s honest, naturally hilarious and a real Yorkshire woman through and through. It was a total joy to have her on. 

LESS WAFFLE. MORE CHATTER. I know that’s what you’re thinking. In fact, are you still reading this? 

RIGHT. LET'S. GET. OUR. PODCAST. ON.
THIS IS EPISODE 57 WITH JODIE WHITTAKER.

ENJOY.

#TSP056 - Susan Wokoma

September 27, 2018

Alright Two Shot Pod listeners. How goes? Hope you're all feeling reasonable or better this week. We've got a treat in store for you in the shape of an absolutely top chat with Susan Wokoma
You might know Susan from her appearances in Chewing Gum and Crazyhead or more recently her brilliant comedy short Love The Sinner for Sky. 
We met up with her in the basement room of Maison Bertaux in Soho and after Craig had told the unusually raucous patrons upstairs to keep the noise down, we got down to it. Susan talked movingly about her life growing up with immigrant parents, about being skint, about gentrification in her beloved London and about loads and loads more. It's an absolutely spell-binding hour or so that we're sure you'll find inspiring, heartbreaking and hilarious in various measures.

Thanks a load for listening and if you enjoyed it, why not tell your pals. Especially those who don't ever listen to podcasts. Show 'em that glorious little purple app on their iphones that's a portal to unparalleled audio riches.

#TSP055 - Karl Pilkington

September 20, 2018
How the devil are you? Thank you so, so much downloading. Things good? Things not so good? 
Well put all that aside for an hour or so and let's dive into the world of KARL PILKINGTON. 
 
We announced that Karl would be joining us on Monday, as we always do (what? You don't know that? Check your social media!) and since then anticipation has been building for episode 55 and to hear more of what makes Karl, well... Karl.  
 
Craig & Producer Griff travelled south (London's soho to be exact) to meet Karl at the hotel he was staying in. Tea was ordered, microphones were set up and we hit the record button.   
 
It's a bit of a podcast of two halves this really. Craig and Karl start off by having a bit of a moan about all sorts of stuff (well, it was quite early in the morning) and then just before it turns into a full whinge about the state of everything they think is wrong, it's a hand brake turn into Karl's life and his past and what's happening right now.  
Actually while you're here... what's happening right now is this:
 
 
Karl's done with all his travel show stuff and now he heads into sitcom territory with a show cowritten by himself and long term collaborator RICHARD YEE. 'SICK OF IT' starts sept 27th at 10pm on Sky 1 & NOW TV. And before you ask, no, we havnt been sponsored by Sky One. We just like Karl and happen to think his show is dead, dead good.  Oh, and there may be a TSP connection for the very first episode of his show... Hmmm.
 
It's a very, very entertaining episode that we loved recording. Karl is an absolutely brilliant fella to spend time some time with, so sit yourself down and strap yourself in.  
 
Really hope you enjoy. 
 
THIS IS EPISODE 55 OF THE TWO SHOT PODCAST WITH KARL PILKINGTON.
