Cargo, McSweeney's and the Edinburgh International Book Festival which features too many famous writers to mention here so I'll flag up a few of those that readers and listeners of Scots Whay Hae! may find of most interest. They include Alasdair Gray, Louise Welsh, Alan Warner, Don Patterson, Rodge Glass, William McIlvanney, Denise Mina etc, etc, and the book, which can be broken down into four separate books, was one of the talking points of the festival. I should note that the Elsewhere launch was one of the booziest do's of the festival, and is possibly the reason for their many mentions on this podcast! In truth, Cargo and Scots Whay Hae! have become good friends, and we love it when our friends become succsesful.
You can listen to the podcast, and subscribe, by going to our iTunes page or by RSS. But we always like to leave you with a little something extra on Scots Whay Hae! and while we were in Edinburgh we also popped up to the National Library to record Alan Bissett's one man show The Red Hourglass. We've also shot it on video and hopefully you'll be able to see highlights of that soon. As a taster, the podcast ends with a short audio clip of Alan's show. If you do get the chance to see it we highly recommend you do so.
There will be some other treats from our trip to Edinburgh to follow but in the meantime we hope you enjoy listening to the above as much as we did recording it.
