That Was The Year That Was: The Best Of 2021 Podcasts – Books…



For the first of our Best of 2021 podcast it's about all things bookish as Ali is once again joined by Publishing Scotland's Vikki Reilly.

The two look at the themes and trends of the year, the notable debuts, poetry, publishing, crime, memoirs and non-fiction, the return of some notable names, and a whole lot more, as well as declaring their Book of the Year. There's also a look ahead to 2022 for just a taste of what's coming in the year ahead.


Always a SWH! highlight of the year, it's a podcast which reflects, and celebrates, an exceptional 12 months in Scottish writing.
