For the latest Scots Whay Hae! podcast Ali spoke to writer and podcaster Tom Brogan to learn all about his book Scotland 101: An Introduction to the National Team (published with PITCH Publishing). Tom gives an overview of Scotland 101, his reasons for writing it, the inspirations, sifting through the research, and the publishing process.
Ali then picks a dozen chapters to look at in more detail to give a more clear idea of the book as a whole, including some memorable matches, events, and some of the people involved, and Tom shows his breadth and depth of knowledge, a result of the obvious research done. He also talks about the Shoot! The Breeze podcast.
At a time when Scottish international football is in as healthy a state as it has been for some time, this is the perfect publication to take your knowledge to another level.
It's a thorough and detailed chat about a national obsession, and a book which is the prefect read for fans old and new.
