Anywhere But Here, Episode 74 – Shaun Williamson (@FatBarryShaunW)

This week, we have a very special interview with the actor Shaun Williamson. After waiting patiently for a time when he could fit us in it, typically, fell on a day when Ant was away. So, Tom dropped everything and went to do the interview. The only problem is that Tom is his nephew, so there’s no un-biased voice meaning that Tom had to play the family member and detached voice of the audience.

We find out how Shaun came to be an actor through many jobs that now don’t exist and the stroke of luck that bought him to the nation’s screens in Eastenders which, eventually led him to appear in Ricky Gervais’ hit comedies Extras and Life’s Too Short, as well as the Hollywood film The Invention of Lying.

His career isn’t all screen-based, and Shaun takes us through his stage work, where he’ll be appearing near you (as long as you’re in the U.K.) at some point in the next few months in a touring show of One Man, Two Guvnors. He’ll also be appearing in a film alongside Adrien Brody in the Autumn about Houdini who apparently worked as a spy during World War 2.

Shaun gives advice to school children wanting to become actors, as it turns out he still has a cult following with a generation who were barely born when he was acting in Eastenders.

There’s also a shocking revelation about weight at the beginning of the show that some will be taken aback by! We are very proud to be able to show you a candid, if not all-the-way-candid, interview into the man’s life. As it was a spur of the moment thing – and Tom was unprepared – please ask questions that should have been asked and they shall be put to the man himself, hopefully on record, very soon. In the meantime, enjoy this tantalising look into Shaun Williamson’s life and please, go and see One Man, Two Guvnors when it comes to your home town, soon! The link to the National Theatre’s website for dates and tickets is here.

Hold on to the end of the episode to get a piece of audio you could use for an alert on your mobile device too!

No video this week, unfortunately. Sorry about that, we will return to regular broadcasting next week!

Episode 60 – #FUF

This week, Scott & Charlie from the Stinking Pause film podcast are in the studio for a chat about films and to comment on the week’s news. Topics discussed include the missing Malaysian airlines plane that could now be anywhere from Kazakhstan to the Indian Ocean to Macauly Culkin’s Velvet Underground covers band The Pizza Underground, which is a revelation, as is the fact that one of the Wachowski Brothers is now a sister!

Fun times were had by all, we hope you enjoy and, for the love of all that’s good, start listening to the Stinking Pause podcast, they’re great lads!

Episode 61 – Stinking Pause, Part 2

This is the second episode of Ant and Tom’s conversation with Scot and Charlie from the Stinking Pause Podcast.

Tom talks about being abducted while on a job interview on St. Patrick’s Day and forced to sell things door-to-door when all he wanted to do was go to the pub. Scott tells us about his interview for a management position in an Ann Summers shop, which wasn’t as great as you would imagine!

We get to hear the origin of the Stinking Pause Podcast with Scott being inspired by shoddily recorded Dr. Who fan shows and Charlie listening to the Ricky Gervais XFM podcasts.

We find out what everyone’s favourite films are which, somehow leads on to suffragettes being trampled by the King’s horse at a race back in the 1930s.

Jim from Swanscombe writes in to give his thoughts on Anywhere But Here, which are greatly received!

Stand-up comedians like Alan Carr, Men In Coats, Jimmy Carr and Ricky Gervais are discussed which leads on to the unveiling of Tom’s dark family secret!

No videos this week as there were too many wires and bits of equipment, so you’ll have to use the shortlinks at the top of each description to go listen to it at the site. While you’re there, hit the subscribe button, it’s easier!
