Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 308 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A very long awaited episode this week, as Pip has a proper chat with the wonderful Rob Auton, taking us inside the intriguing and thoroughly engaging mind of this spoken word and comedy great!

Kicking off with a full episode of Rob’s own podcast (which is easy as it’s only a couple of minutes long) to get you in the mix nicely, Pip and Rob get full on deep into a wide ranging conversation which will serve as a perfect introduction to him if you haven’t experienced Rob’s work already. Beginning with the recording of his Speech Development Records album ‘At Home With Rob’, the two get into everything including the difference between live and home performance, the weird alchemy of performance and presence, same setlist / different crowd, the ‘Takeshi’s Castle’ of getting it right, “to EX-press and not to IM-press”, the process of creating his themed shows, the absurdity but wonder of life and retaining a childlike fascination of it all, not lying, purity of thought, doing good in society and the world, self improvement and the knock-on effects thereof, science and religion and of course his own podcast! Enjoy this one!
