Podcast ~ Episode 10: Imagine A Country

On this episode we feature Imagine a Country: Ideas for a better future, the brainchild of crime writer Val McDermid and Jo Sharp, a geography professor at St Andrews University. Starting off as a discuss over a glass of wine at last year's Edinburgh International Book Festival, they've asked from people from all walks of life to ponder the possibilities of life, work, love, and a whole lot more, in a future Scotland.

We also chat to Festival favourite Hugh McMillan. A former history teacher and accomplished poet, Hugh talks to us about some of his past, present and future projects including McMillan’s Galloway, which will be out with Luath later this year.

Novelist Val McDermid and Professor Jo Sharp lead the podcast this week talking about the new book they've co-edited which imagines a future Scotland. Plus poet Hugh McMillan explains why he's championing Dumfries & Galloway and its writers.
