Neil Gaiman • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #301

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 301 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! The one that more than a few of you have been waiting for right here… Not to mention Pip… Yes indeed - this week’s guest is the phenomenally prolific and downright awesome author NEIL GAIMAN!


“...Comics are a medium that is mistaken for a genre...”


To even use the word ‘author’ risks belittling the wealth of work that Neil’s been involved in, but let’s just say the list of work goes back a good long way. His career is coming up on around 40 years, and on this chat you’ll hear about a huge amount of it. This includes the wisdom accrued along the way, lessons learned and notes made, ranging across the board and including finding his writing process, moving around artistically, Good Omens, Dr Who, working with DC and the Sandman comic, Neverwhere, the things that can get missed through the journey from writer to production, give and take behind the scenes, the holy trinity of Peter Sellers, David Tenant and Michael Sheen, the 90’s comic bubble, and being a parental unit with Amanda Palmer! Oh there’s MUCH more too… But that’s for you to discover and enjoy. And you shall!
