2020 Vision: Looking Back At The Cultural Year…

Updated: May 7

A wee bonus SWH! podcast for the end of the year…

Earlier this year we recorded podcasts with Ali and his brother Andy (right) where they discussed their favourite albums from the 1980s through to the 2010s:

  1. Musical Youth: The SWH! Podcast Talks To Andy Braidwood…

  2. Yesterday Once More: The SWH! Podcast & The Music Of The ’90s…

  3. Noughtie But Nice: The SWH! Podcast & The Music Of The ’00s…

  4. A New Decade: The SWH! Podcast & The Music Of The 2010s…

Just before Christmas Day they got together remotely once again to discuss their cultural year, and some of the creative undertakings which have helped them through the last 12 months.

They talk books, music, podcasts, art, anniversaries, festivals, opera, literary giants, ghosts, beer, the comfort of nostalgia, and more. We hope you enjoy listening as much as they clearly did recording it.
