John Michie

He’s spent many years on our screens in shows such as Taggart, Coronation Street and most recently, Holby City, and now John Michie comes along to PITPOD for a chat! John takes us through his unorthodox childhood to his time as a stage manager who couldn’t work a lighting desk, all the way up to the present day, telling me about his preparation for going on stage or in front of the camera. Thanks for listening!

From amateur dramatics in Carnoustie all the way to the West End with the hugely popular “Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour”, Caroline Deyga joins me in the Lyceum Theatre in Edinburgh to chart her journey, her various great roles and to discuss the current state of gender politics in our industry. Join us, won’t you?

James McArdle

Direct from his massive success in Tony Kushner’s “Angels in America”, both at The National and on Broadway, James McArdle joins me to chat about playing an iconic American role for both British and American audiences, dealing with stage fright and the common misconceptions surrounding Scottish actors working outside Scotland. Join us for a wee chat. Thanks, as always for listening!
