Matt Richards • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #281

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 281 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Absolute wrestling heaven this week as Pip is joined by commentator, host and new Tuesday Night Jaw presenter MATT RICHARDS!


Pure perfection for the wrestling heads here, and a whole bunch for the non-wrestling heads aside too… Recorded at the Book Club (home to Pip’s ‘WeAreLizards’ night but on this occasion, exponentially quieter) on Matt’s birthday no less, this is a great sit down to help you get better acquainted with the new host of the Distraction Pieces Network’s very own TUESDAY NIGHT JAW! As you can plainly hear from the opening moments, Matt’s a lovely guest and certainly a very welcome voice to the network. Not only a gaming festival host, he’s done his time outside the ring but also inside the ring, and has an all rounder knowledge that puts him in a perfect position to take the reigns of something so specifically wrestling focused. From his 48,000 hours on Football Manager 2010, to online UFC and wrestling, to fighting and the narratives attached, to Progress and Jim Smallman, to the role as a fan of MMA, to his deep knowledge and understanding of wrestling, how luck and hard work are not mutually exclusive, how the roots of Tuesday Night Jaw are in positivity, NXT UK controversies and happiness, fulfilment and gratefulness. So much to enjoy.
