Laura Dockrill • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #389
Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip!
Pip catches up on events from the past few years with poet, author and good pal LAURA DOCKRILL!
A very timely meeting with Laura this week, coming in after the finale of the Where’s Your Head At series that spanned the month of May. This is very much on message for the series, though this time we get to spend a whole episode with Laura, who was last featured a good few years ago on here. As you could imagine, a LOT of life has happened in those interviening years, but as you will hear in truly honest detail, it has been a mix of ecstatic highs and powerful lows, a rocky road upon which which she has felt every single bump. So just as a note up top, Laura goes into her experiences with pregnancy, though focused more on the later stages post-delivery. And that’s where things got tough to say the very least. This is an incredible frank conversation which goes into post partum psychosis, and all that entails - but it’s incredibly refreshing to hear such honesty and first person accounting of it all (especially from someone so nice with the wordplay and the pen), so here’s a good long chat with Laura Dockrill - give it some time and focus.
