True Stories: The Scots Whay Hae! Podcast Talks To Aidan Martin...

Updated: Apr 18


For the latest SWH! podcast Ali spoke to writer Aidan Martin about Euphoric Recall, a memoir which deals with his recovery from extreme trauma and addiction.

The two discuss why he wrote the book - and why he chose memoir over fiction, how it felt to return to these traumatic events, how writing helped his recovery, the inspiration for the book's structure, the reaction from friends and family, his involvement with recovery support, the kindness of strangers, his love for his home town of Ladywell, and so much more.


It's a conversation as honest and open as the book itself, and which we hope will encourage you to seek out Euphoric Recall as, although this is Aidan's story, there are things there which will be relatable to all.


Euphoric Recall is out now published by Guts Publishing.
