Insightful!

As an Englishmen living in Scotland I loved learning about the origins of burns night and the haggis from someone authentic. Hearing from someone so passionate about what they do is always a treat, many of the questions I had about the business as a whole were answered through Andrew’s professional curiosity and human touch.

Can’t wait to hear more!

Loved the interview!

The interview with James Macsween was brilliant, lovely to listen to someone who is so passionate about their business and the address to haggis was a performance! Can’t wait for the next episode :)
