Ros Beeson - Ep#13

Ros Beeson - Ep#13

October 4, 2019

It's our thirteenth episode and in October... oooh, spooky. We are honoured to have the wonderful improviser and sketch comedy performer/writer Ros Beeson join us. As much as this might sound like clickbait you would not believe what ends up being rolled by the dice when we get to it. Seriously we did NOT plan this.

Ros is a great performer and we had no idea before we spoke to her that she had recently taken back up drawing. We dig into Ros' past a little and she explains how she got together with fellow university people to form the sketch based comedy group Up The Antics and now that she fronts the Bish Bash Bosh that you can see at the Bristol Improv Theatre.

Ros spills the beans on how prop cigarettes work and teases us with talk about the upcoming show she is working on called Level Up in co-ordination with the Unscripted Players. You can catch this on the 15th & 16th November 2019 at the Bristol Improv Theatre, see their website for more details.

Gwdihoo - Ep#12

Gwdihoo - Ep#12

September 6, 2019

This month we get spooky a little early with the talents of Gwdihoo (aka Goody Who). She is an awesome creative who has just become an art fair dad with the SUMMER SCREAM event. There is space in the world for spooky art fairs and so she set up the Ghoul Gang Collective along with her buddy Fruit & Bone. We get Goody to tell us what goes into having a tattoo apprenticeship and her influences. We go off on some pretty big tangents that take us through Christopher Robin as a horror movie, the works of Jan SvankmajerGrace Neutral, Ryu Murakami and his book In The Miso Soup and one particular bit of work by the amazing Junji Ito.

Harry Jones - Ep#10 - Part 2

Harry Jones - Ep#10 - Part 2

July 5, 2019

This is part two of our two-part chat with artist Harry Jones. Here is where we roll the dice and make something up. See what we make out of the Dinosaur & Robot genres. We dig a bit into why Harry finds taking photos is incredibly helpful for him to use as reference material. Chris struggles trying to draw a tar pit and gives some dinosaurs some weird legs and Nathan shows us how robot aliens actually kidnapped all the T-rex's.

A huge thank you to Harry who was an awesome guest, we wish him well for all of his future projects and shall aim to keep an eye on what he produces.

We are going back to releasing one episode a month again so our next episode will be Friday August 2nd 2019.

Harry Jones - Ep#10 - Part 1

July 5, 2019

This is part one of our two-part chat with artist Harry Jones. Harry is a painter who enjoys making beautifully intricate pieces of art and has recently finished his third year at the University of West England (UWE). These pieces usually take quite a bit of time to finish and we chat about the process of creating such a piece and how recently the university lecturers have been trying to encourage him to be faster. You can't rush genius I say!. Part two is where we roll the dice and chat more.

Thunderchair - Ep#9

Thunderchair - Ep#9

June 21, 2019

We have the pleasure of chatting with Howard, Joe and Ferg who collectively call themselves Thunderchair for Episode 9. We begin by chatting about their new comic book launch event for Hyper Galactic Rockstar Champion: Royal Rumble. They have an interesting history of really long title names for their comic books. We talk about how they all met, what their influences are and there is a lot of silliness that happens. All of that is before we roll the cubes and somehow create a 70's style cop play starring a monster who is experiencing some sort of time shift.

Rhiannon Kagoe - Ep#8

June 7, 2019

Rhiannon Kagoe joins us for episode 8 to talk about her comic books. She intends to try and release at least one comic a year. She talks about how drawing is some form of self-help therapy for her and how she finds it easier to come up with ideas when she is sad rather than happy. We also touch upon the tricky fact that people are currently choosing not to vaccinate their children. Consider this a warning that if you do find talks about this subject tricky then you might want to skip that bit.

Remember to take a look on Facebook and Instagram for the images that were drawn for the dice roll. We can't thank Rhiannon enough for providing us with two awesome sketches. Our next episode will be live on June 21st.

May 24, 2019

Our second episode for May and we have the pleasure of chatting to Stephen Hayles who is one of the directors of Upfest the biggest urban paint festival in Europe. We have split this episode into two parts because it was a long a chat and wanted to bring you as much content as we possibly could.

In the first part he takes us through what it's like to have a crazy dream come true and now be responsible for what we believe is a truly amazing daytime festival. For more information about the festival have a look at the Upfest website.

We cannot thank Stephen enough for coming onto our little Podcast, we think he is really inspirational. Look out for part 2 of this chat later on today and our next full episode will be out on June 7th.
