Podcast ~ Episode 8: Outrider interrupted

In this episode of the Wigtown Book Festival podcast, poet Nadine Aisha Jassat talks about her unique experience of lockdown, while she was taking part in the Edinburgh International Book Festival's Outriders Africa project. She also discusses her debut collection, Let Me Tell You This, and talks about a future work which she is writing as part of her Scottish Book Trust New Writer's Award.

Longlisted for last year's Booker Prize, Kevin Barry first attended the Wigtown Book Festival in 2012. He chats to Peggy Hughes about that experience, as well as telling us about the genesis of his novel Night Boat to Tangier and giving us a flavour of what to expect from his forthcoming collection of short stories That Old Country Music.

Produced by Colin Fraser. Incidental music by Ragland.
