| MisInfoNation: What the world gets wrong, and right, about Scotland |

There are things we think we know about countries. But viral videos, tiktok and 24 hour news has made everything we understand about other places somewhat misinformed, twisted or just downright incorrect.

Today on Passport we take this misinformation and turn it on its head, upside down, the wrong way round and inside out. That’s why we're calling it MisInfoNation. Think of this as a cultural mythbusters. 

So we’re heading to Scotland to find out the truth about Haggis, the story behind Irn-Bru, if there’s anything the Scots won’t deep fry, how they feel about Donald Trump’s heritage, and what’s really going on under a kilt. Also, we’ll discover the absolute best view in all of Scotland.  

We laugh a lot during this episode, fittingly, because the Scots take great pride in their sense of humor. Which explains their choice of national animal. Be sure to listen for that.
