Helen Oxenbury
Helen Oxenbury is an illustrator of children’s books whose work has featured in many very popular titles for younger readers including the award-winning We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, by Michael Rosen. Helen has won the Kate Greenaway Medal twice and was awarded a lifetime achievement award by the Book Trust in 2018. She attended the Ipswich School of Art and later the Central School of Art in London where she met fellow illustrator and her future husband, John Burningham. After the birth of her children she began illustrating children’s books, working at the kitchen table long after they’d gone to bed. Her work for Ivor Cutler’s Meal One, published in 1971, was praised by Spare Rib magazine for its portrayal of a single mother and her relationship with her young son. Helen came up with the idea of her baby board books in the late 1970s after the birth of her third child who suffered with eczema. Discovering that her daughter could be distracted from scratching by looking at baby catalogues, Helen created a series of board books placing babies and toddlers at their heart. Such a concept was unheard of at the time. From the late 1980s, Helen ensured that the babies and children featured in her books came from different ethnic backgrounds and her work in So Much by Trish Cooke has become a children’s classic. In We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, published in 1989, Helen’s pictures celebrated the joy of adventure and the bond between siblings.

EP.142 - BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH
Adam talks with British poet, writer and musician Benjamin Zephaniah. PLEASE BE AWARE: During the first 10 minutes of our conversation Benjamin told me about some relatives suffering with the effects of COVID and included some details that may be upsetting to hear for people who have lost loved ones to the disease. So if you're worried, skip past those first ten minutes and you should be OK. It's not all pandemic chat though - mainly Benjamin describes fascinatingly how managed to make the transition from angry young criminal to internationally celebrated writer. Thanks to Séamus Murphy-Mitchell for production support and to Anneka Myson for additional editing.  Podcast artwork by Helen Green https://helengreenillustration.com/ RELATED LINKS SAMARITANS NORWICH CHOOSE LOVE AUCTION CHOOSE LOVE - HELP REFUGEES ON LINE STORE BENJAMIN LINKS BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH'S WEBSITE BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH - DIS POLICEMAN (KEEPS ON KICKING ME TO DEATH) (1982, YOUTUBE) BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH (WITH THE WAILERS) - FREE SOUTH AFRICA (TUFF GONG) (1982, YOUTUBE) BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH ON WINDRUSH, ANARCHISM AND HIS TIME IN NORTH KOREA (C4 NEWS, 2018, YOUTUBE) ON MODERN RACISM (2011, BBC NEWSNIGHT, YOUTUBE) BENJAMIN ZEPHANIAH RECITES HIS POEM MONEY (1991, YOUTBE) WEST MIDLANDS POLICE PAY COMPENSATION FOR KILLING OF MIKEY POWELL (2003) (2018, BIRMINGHAM LIVE WEBSITE) ADAM AND JOE LINKS ADAM AND JOE - FRIENDS LIKE THESE, NME (2020, YOUTUBE) THE ADAM AND JOE SHOW ON WOW PRESENTS PLUS (SIGN UP TO STREAM ALL 4 SERIES)  ADAM BUXTON WEBSITE ADAM BUXTON'S RAMBLE BOOK (HARDBACK) (WATERSTONES) ADAM BUXTON'S RAMBLE BOOK (AUDIOBOOK) (2020, AUDIBLE)   See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

MyAnna Buring • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #356
Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! Cinematic perfection is upon us once more, as Pip finally aligns schedules with the incredible and inspiring actor MYANNA BURING! It’s another great one folks, but I mean when has the Distraction Pieces Podcast ever been less than? That was rhetorical. But seriously… Anyway - here’s a beautiful chance to enjoy a wonderful chat across the internet lines with MyAnna, who you will know from one of the most intense films in movie history The Descent, or equally intense movie Kill List, or maybe from the marginally less intense (depending on your age perhaps) Twilight saga. At any rate, if you are yet to make her acquaintance, prepare to make a new pal right here through a packed chat, containing everything including making the decision to pare down over lockdown, how groundbreaking The Descent was when looking in retrospect, help along the way (this podcast has spiritual guidance from Michael Smiley and Stephen Graham of course), stories being the backbone of society, on-camera process, the scale of Twilight, traveling a ton as a kid and her triangle of the Middle East, Sweden and the UK, hard bread and The Witcher! Finally though, here are your three commandments: 1. Know your lines; 2. Turn up on time and 3. Don’t be a dick. Easy! ENJOY!
