A Scottish Podcast About Scotland!

Beware all the swears in this episode! 

This week we are talking about the 1996 hit movie from director Danny Boyle: Trainspotting. 

We discuss the cultural impact this movie (and the Irvine Welsh book it was based on) had on Scotland  and the UK film industry at the time. We talk about the amazing cast, where they are now and some of our favourite scenes. 

This film is undoubtably better and more true to life in Scotland than Braveheart ever was, so if you haven't seen it yet - go do that, then come back and listen (also, it's ok if you need to turn on the subtitles).
