Episode 10: Imagine a Country

Hugh MacMillan, Val McDermid and Jo Sharp

30 June 2020

In 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.

Originating, as so many things do, over a glass of wine at last year's Edinburgh International Book Festival, the book asked 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.
