Glasgow Part 1: It's Miles Better
Play • 1 hr

A Scottish Podcast About Scotland!

We are back babeeeeee!! Very exciting to be telling stories about our beloved homeland again.

It has been a long and lonely hiatus between seasons but finally we have returned to fill your ear holes with delicious no nonsense Scottish waffles.

For the season premier we are going back to our home town of Glasgow. We talk lovningly (mostly) about where Glasgow came from, it's pretty dumb motto, and it's rejuvenation to the 1990 European City of Culture. 

Also - Jonny has a new theme song for us! Finally!
