Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 249 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! We are BLESSING you this week with a full power bonus episode - oh you thought the week was over? Nah, not even close. Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome the director of surely some of your favourite films, it’s ADAM McKAY!

His new film ‘Vice’, which features Christian Bale as Dick Cheney alongside a star-studded cast, should be well and truly released at this point. Whether you have already seen it (lucky you) or you’re gearing up for a viewing in the near future, here’s your chance to get properly acquainted with the director himself, and get a very insightful glimpse into so many aspects of how he gets films made. Check his IMDB page for a full filmography (including Stepbrothers, The Big Short, Anchorman, The Other Guys to name a couple) and you’ll realise what insanely great company we’re in for this episode! In not a lot of time, hear Pip delve in on topics like the divisiveness of US politics, the ‘ghost’ version of what you make, history repeating itself, chopping out sections of films which don’t work even if he loves them, the process of getting films made from the beginning, casting and getting the right crew for a film based on real people, how he worked up to ‘cracking’ Christian Bale, and how hiring really good people is the key. Awesomeness at every turn. Enjoy!
