#TSP075 - Cariad Lloyd

February 7, 2019

Hiyer. How are ya? Thanks for being here. It's very much appreciated.
Remember when Notorious B.I.G. and Method Man dropped red-hot collab 'The What' over an impeccably produced Easy Mo Bee beat? Well what we've got here for episode 75 is the podcast equivalent. Well it's not really, but that is a dead good song. 
This week's guest is podcasting royalty. It's the multi award-winning Griefcast's very own Cariad Lloyd. Cariad is an infectious ball of energy juggling so many different and brilliant creative pursuits. She and Craig discuss acting, podcast life, improvisation, grief and so, so much more. 
You might know Cariad from the afore-mentioned Griefcast, or from her improvised comedy group Austentacious. You might know her from her appearances in Peep Show, Murder in Successville and Toast of London. You might also know her from her appearances on Would I Lie To You, 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Have I Got News For You or QI. Basically, she does a lot. And she always does it wonderfully well. And she's dead cool. 
This is episode 75 of the Two Shot Podcast with the brilliant Cariad Lloyd.

#TSP074 - Steve Evets (Part 2)

#TSP074 - Steve Evets (Part 2)

January 31, 2019

Here we are again, and what a treat we have for you for our 74th episode.

We’re always so chuffed when an episode connects with you. That can certainly be said for last year's STEVE EVETS episode. We had a feeling there was more to discover with Steve and decided to go back up North and meet with him again. We were not disappointed and neither will you be. 

If you’ve not heard Steve’s first episode then we urge you to go back and listen before you give this one spin.

We pick up the podcast pretty much where we left off in part one but first we discuss Steve's recent health scare, a health scare that prompted a pretty huge lifestyle change for him. 

We must give a huge thanks to the Old Nags Head pub in Manchester for giving us a room to record this week's episode in. Another big shout out to past TSP guest JB Barrington for sorting that out for us. Top man JB! 

As a rule, we don't delve too often into “jobs” when talking to actors but on this ep Craig had to ask Steve about the job that pretty much changed everything for him and we get some remarkable stories because of it. 

If you enjoyed Part 1 with Steve then you better buckle up. Part 2 is an absolute belter. 

Enjoy.

THIS IS EPISODE 74 OF THE TWO SHOT PODCAST & we move forward with another natter with STEVE EVETS.  If you've enjoyed listening then please click through to https://www.patreon.com/twoshotpod to make a donation to the running costs of the show.

#TSP073 - Olivia Cooke

January 24, 2019

What's good TSP listeners? You are now tuned into the sound of the Two Shot Podcast and have we got a cracker of an episode for you today. It's a chat with the one and only Olivia Cooke! 
Liv joined us in an exceedingly retro hotel in Earl's Court and we had a proper good hour or two discussing her journey to becoming the actor and person that she is today. She and Craig talk growing up in Oldham, working in America, battling demons, therapy, levels of misbehaviour in high school, and loads, loads more. 
You'll know Olivia from Spielberg's Ready Player One, Vanity Fair, Bates Motel, Thoroughbreds, Me And Earl And The Dying Girl and The Limehouse Golem amongst many other brilliant things. She's an ace actor, an equally ace person and it's our pleasure to share this lovely TSP chat with you. 

In the intro of this episode, Craig mentions donating to our Patreon. If you've enjoyed listening then please click through to https://www.patreon.com/twoshotpod to make a donation to the running costs of the show. You'll get bonus pictures, video and audio in return. Nice one.

#TSP072 - Eileen Walsh

#TSP072 - Eileen Walsh

January 17, 2019

How the devil are you? Keeping out that winter chill? Well, we’ve got something to warm you up.
It’s EPISODE 72; a beautiful natter with the extraordinary EILEEN WALSH. She’s ace.

Craig & Griff met Eileen in London direct from a spin class (Eileen’s NOT Craig or Griff’s) and they hit record and began the conversation.
It was one of those recording days when the winter cold hit Craig so there may be a few sneezes and tissue drops but that won’t hinder this fantastic talk as you get to know Eileen. 

We want to thank everyone for the astonishing support from last weeks episode and more specifically Adam’s letter that was read out at the start. It’s seemed to strike a chord with many of you and your lovely messages to Adam were so touching. We know he appreciated all of them. 
Let’s keep talking.

For now, let’s keep listening... to this...

EPISODE 72 of THE TWO SHOT PODCAST with the incredible EILEEN WALSH.

ENJOY. x

#TSP071 - David Morrissey

January 10, 2019

So. Here we are. IT'S 2019! 
WE. ARE. BACK.
Let’s get going.
Fresh out the traps with an absolute banger of an episode with 'The Governor' DAVID MORRISSEY.
Craig & Griff met David in London (Craig was dying with a cold!) and we got IT ON. 
It’s the only way we could kick off 2019. 
It’s a beautiful, honest and almost fragile conversation with one of Liverpool’s finest. 

We ended 2018 with the magnificent JODIE COMER and we start 2019 with the majestic DAVID MORRISSEY. 

LIVERPOOL.  REPRESENT.

ENJOY THIS.

#TSP070 - The End Of Year Listener’s Picks And Looking Forward To 2019

What a year 2018 was. 
We started with Greg Mchugh.
We went to festivals.
We did some live shows.
We met incredible people.
We won an award. 
We travelled around the UK.
We laughed.
We cried.
We were shocked.
We were in awe.
We were inspired.
We ended 2018 with the fabulous Jodie Comer.

A huge thank you to YOU for the love, support & for spreading the TSP word.
This is episode 70 where we asked you for your moments. You let us know and we got 'em all together including a few choice moments from Craig & Producer Griff. 
PLUS... we end this episode the way we started 2018... on a high. 

Hope you enjoy and we’ll be back before you know it with some incredible people telling incredible human stories.

#TSP069 - Jodie Comer

#TSP069 - Jodie Comer

December 20, 2018

Well. Here we all are again. It’s episode 69.  As this is our last episode of 2018 it seems only fitting to think about what an incredible year it’s been. 
We’ve been fortunate enough to sit down and meet so many extraordinary people who’ve been so open and so honest with sharing their stories. We wanted to thank each and every one of them.   
It isn’t an easy thing to come and meet up with (sometimes) strangers and discuss the deep, intimate parts of your life that can be, sometimes, very revealing... not to mention sharing those to the world!
This year we won a British podcast award (We told you right?). We’re so honoured that TSP got recognised alongside so many other podcasts that we love. Do go listen to the many podcasts that made the list as they will all find a place that in your podcast library, we’re sure. 

As we say goodbye to 2018, it’s fitting we end as we started the year...on a high. We couldn’t think of anyone better to see us out than the brilliant human that is JODIE COMER.

Craig & Producer Griff met in London (Earl’s Court) to meet up with Jodie and get their podcast on. It was Jodie’s very first podcast! We’re always so honoured when people want TSP to be their first podcast outing. We don’t think this will disappoint ONE. BIT.

You'll know Jodie from her show-stealing depiction of Villanelle in Phoebe Waller-Bridge's incredible Killing Eve alongside Sandra Oh and former TSP guest Susan Lynch.
You might also have seen her in The White Princess, My Mad Fat Diary, Doctor Foster, Thirteen and loads of other stuff. If you’re a big fan of Jodie, then after this episode you’ll be a colossal fan. She’s absolutely ace. What a perfect way to send off the year. Thank you all so much for an ace 2018.   
Have a beautiful Christmas. All our peace and love for the new year.

THIS IS EPISODE 69 with the incredible JODIE COMER

#TSP068 - Jonjo O’Neill

#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

#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.
