Iain Lee - Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #123

WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME - three welcome as standard of course - to episode 123 of your weekly Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! ...and what a perfect companion to last weeks broadcasting gold, as we welcome (thrice, naturally) radio maverick and all round frequency-waves captain Iain Lee!

A wonderfully wide-ranging discussion between Pip and Iain, covering the whole journey which has led him to where he currently makes his radio home at Talk Radio. From his glorious pseudonym IAIN IN BLACK THUNDER (certainly a strong contender for an Iain bio-pic title) in his old-skool presenting days, all the way through the main stations he's frequented including LBC and Absolute, as well as his time a while back on '11 O' Clock Show', his path has been intense and full of learning curves and hurdles, all of which you shall hear about. How he gets the most from call-in guests and his sixth-sense for when there's more to be gleaned, his 'bedroom' style of broadcasting and how he reached that sleek freestyle flow of presenting, and a very moving recounting of his situation at the BBC which led to a firing and consequently, a long and heavy depression.

Heavy, entertaining, open, honest and inspiring. These broadcasters always bring it and this is further proof of that... Get to know more about Iain - after this one you surely will, and you'll be glad you do. Enjoy!
