Scotland with Annalena McAfee, Rory Stewart and Denise Mina

There's a distinctly Scottish flavour to this month's podcast as we discuss the idea of home with Annalena McAfee, the concept of borders with Rory Stewart and walk the streets of Glasgow on the trail of a serial killer with Denise Mina

Scottish independence is back in the news at the same time as we're all still struggling to get our heads around what Brexit might look like. With waves of populism and nationalism sweeping across Europe and beyond we speak to three writers with distinct points of view on what Scottishness means to them. We talk about the concept of home with Annalena McAfee, author of Hame; we walk the length of Hadrian's Wall with Rory Stewart, author of The Marches, and discuss the whole notion of borders; and finally we join Denise Mina on a tour of Glasgow's murky past as she tells us more about the real crime behind her latest novel, The Long Drop.
