Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!

Without a doubt, an episode that’s been a long time in the making - at last, Pip catches up with national trasure, poet, writer and lyricist BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH!

Pure enjoyment from the Birmingham legend as he and Pip catch up and talk about all things poetry but so much more… Beginning at the beginning of time itself, they move through viruses, “unpredictable” times, nature, the meat industry, finance and politics, squashing Twitter beefs, Bob Marley, doing gigs and slowly finding his crew, Life & Rhymes and everything contained within, finding and celebrating music in the words, performance poetry vs page poetry and of course, Peaky Blinders! Amazing. Commence listening immediately.
