#TSP045 - Dave Haslam

May 31, 2018

HERE WE ARE!
It's Thursday and it's EPISODE 45 of THE TWO SHOT PODCAST. This week travel north to sit down with legendary DJ & author DAVE HASLAM!!

A few months ago we got a call telling us that THE CHARLATANS were doing something pretty unique. They were going to put on a takeover in NORTHWICH, which is where they have recorded many of their albums and consider it a second home. They were going to play 4 gigs over over 4 nights with a different set each night and then stream the gig all over the world. Pretty special right?   
They would also have other bands play and also a very special exhibition. They asked us if we'd like to be a part of it and host two LIVE episodes with an audience for each. We were lucky enough to bag our first guest in he shape of DAVE HASLAM and then our 2nd guest came on board and that was PADDY CONSIDINE. It was going to be a busy day. Thankfully we made it work and the audience came (if you were there, then thanks for coming!!) and it was a pretty special day. 

We'd been talking to Dave for just under a year about coming on so we were thrilled we could make it work for this and can't thank him enough for coming on. CHEERS DAVE !!

We begin by chatting about where he started. Moseley, Birmingham. We also get treated to the man himself reading a piece from his memoirs, SONIC YOUTH SLEPT ON MY FLOOR (good title, eh?)
You may have got down to Dave spinning tunes in the past but now here's a chance to get to know the man himself. 

ENJOY!! 

(Producer Griff says apologies for the sound this week. Whilst the venue was really cool, there are cosier aircraft hangars; which is why it sounds as if God himself is speaking. A few de-reverb modules were tried but it all sounded a bit digitally warpy so it was left as is. Sorry)

#TSP044 - Meera Syal

May 24, 2018

Greetings Two Shot Podcast listener. Hope you're very well. 

This week we are joined by some real acting royalty in the form of Meera Syal. We sat down with Meera in the basement of Maison Bertaux (What! You've not been yet!? You definitely should very soon) and we talked about her childhood in Wolverhampton, sleeping in a draw, parental support, the dawn of proper British Asian comedy and loads and loads of other stuff.

You'll know Meera from her pioneering work alongside former TSP guest Sanjeev Bhaskar in television institutions Goodness, Gracious Me, and The Kumars at Number 42 or more recently in her brilliant role in The Split. She has a myriad of writing, authorship and acting credits to her name and the story of how she came to be where she is today is as spectacular as her artistic achievements.

She was an absolute pleasure to be with and her confidence and positivity are a complete inspiration. It's a wonderful listen and we really hope you enjoy. 

Dunno if you heard but we won a bloody prize. We are now the proud holders of a British Podcast Award in the 'Best Culture Podcast' category. Whilst the supportive messages we get on a daily basis from you, the dear listeners, are why we do what we do, it's always lovely to have your work recognised at a do where they give you champagne as you go in. Nice one to the BPAs for our "poddy" and a belter of a ceremony in London last weekend.

#TSP043 - Dan Ryan

May 17, 2018

Eyup. It's that TSP time of the week again and in this insalment, we've had a pint and a chin-wag with actor Daniel Ryan. In the cool confines of Maison Bertaux's cellar, the conversation flowed freely, veering from Northern childhoods, to the changing nature of auditions, via coping with acting downtime.

You might know Dan from his appearances in Mount Pleasant, Homefires, or Black Sea. Or from one of many stage appearnaces in such productions as Glengarry Glen Ross. Dan is a wonderful man; warm, kind and uninhibitedly honest. He's got a brilliant outlook on life and we hope you take seomthing valuable from this episode of ther podcast.

Nice one for downloading and listening.

#TSP042 - Hannah Britland

May 10, 2018

Happy Thursday Two Shot Podcast listeners. Thanks for tuning in to our 42nd episode. This instalment sees us sitting down with Lancashire actress Hannah Britland. We met Hannah on a Beautiful spring day down in the basement of Maison Bertaux (Again, sorry if there's any background noise putting you off. One day we'll be able to afford our own acoustically perfect podcasting studio... sponsors get in touch!?!?!) Hannah is an absolute ball of energy and her joi de vivre absolutely shines all over this episode. 

You might recognise Hannah from Misfits (where she first met Craig apparently), Skins, Fresh Meat and more recently Lovesick. She was a brilliant chatter and we're sure you'll enjoy listening. Thanks again for listening to and supporting the podcast. X

#TSP041 - Matt Berry

May 3, 2018

Here we are again. THIS IS EPISODE 41 OF THE TWO SHOT PODCAST and this week we're thrilled to welcome... the man, the voice... THE MATT BERRY! 

Craig & Producer Griff travelled into London's Soho to meet Matt on the hottest day of the year so far (remember that? Was that our summer?) and popped to our favourite tea shop, Maison Bertaux (Greek street - you should go, it's ace!) and sat down, and more importantly cooled down, and then got down to it. 
It's a cracker of an episode with Matt and we discuss all sorts; growing up, music, albums, comedy, creativity, insomnia, and the London dungeons. You're gonna love it. 

You'll know Matt from his extensive work on shows like Snuffbox, The I.T. Crowd, Darkplace, The Mighty Boosh and of course, the brilliant Toast of London
Sit back. relax. and let the smooth tones of this episode wash over you. YES!! 

P.S. Sorry about the background noise in this episode. As it was such a lovely day, all the windows and doors were opened out onto the bustling streets of Soho and the chatter and ambience spilled. Just think of it as a bit of audio set-dressing. Nice one. (Producer Griff)

#TSP040 - Karen Bryson MBE

April 26, 2018

Happy Thursday Two Shot Podcast listeners. Thanks for downloading and listening. This week we were in the esteemed company of actress Karen Bryson. We met Karen down at Maison Bertaux on the our annual British sunny day (as you may be able to tell from the massively overlit picture that accompanies this edition).

Karen is a fantastic woman, she speaks with vigour and passion on every single one of the many subjects we touched upon. You may know her from Channel 4's Shameless or from the BBC's Cuffs where she starred alongside previous guests Shaun Dooley and Amanda Abbington, or from the Jed Mercurio series Bodies amongst many other things. It was a pleasure to be in her company for the hour or so we spent together and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it.

#TSP039 - Tim Plester

April 19, 2018

Greetings Two Shot Podcast listeners and welcome to another episode. The actor, writer and filmmaker Tim Plester is our guest this week. We met up with Tim in Soho (big shout out to Kevin Proctor again for the recording space) and chatted about national variants of the school yard cry of disbelief "chinny", wayward school days and morris dancing amongst a myriad of other things.

You may know Tim from his work in Game of Thrones, or from his documentary films The Way Of The Morris and The Ballad Of Shirley Collins. He's a brilliant talker and we're sure you'll enjoy listening in to this particularly free-flowing hour or so.

#TSP037 - Shane Attwooll

April 5, 2018

It's Thursday and you're probably still wondering what made you eat that other chocolate egg over the Easter break... forget about that now... leave the guilt in the rubbish bin with the wrappers and let's GET. OUR. PODCAST. ON!

Craig & Producer Griff took a journey south and met up with Shane in London's Soho (big shout out to Tania Wade❤️), sat down with a brew and got their natter on.
This is another cracker of an episode that tackles so much; life, love, jobs, family, Wales... crikey, so so much more too. You're going to love this, we promise!   It gets emotional so you may need some tissues. Craig certainly needed some on his train back home.

You may have seen Shane recently on the big screen in DARK RIVER or opposite TOM HARDY in LEGEND, to name but two.

It's a beautifully honest, no-hold-barred chat that goes deep.
GET READY.
Really hope you enjoy.
THIS IS EPISODE 37 OF THE TWO SHOT PODCAST with SHANE ATTWOOLL.

#TSP036 - LoneLady

March 29, 2018

HAPPY THURSDAY!
This is episode 36 of The Two Shot Podcast and this week we leave the world of acting and dip our toes (ears?) into the world of music with our guest LONELADY (Julie Campbell)

Craig & Producer Griff travel to meet Julie in London's Soho to sit down and talk early life, music, art, school, confidence and fear and a whole lot more.

Massive shout to TSP friend Kevin Proctor for helping out as we recorded in his office in soho. Big up Kev!

We were thrilled to have Julie on, as she doesn't do a lot of podcasts, or indeed interviews, so it was an honour that we made dates work and she felt time was right to come on.

We hope you enjoy.
