    Scottish Football: It's the Hope That Kills You

    Scottish Football: It's the Hope That Kills You

    A Scottish Podcast About Scotland!

    The 2020 UEFA European Football Championship has started (a year late because of the coronabawbag) and Scotland men's team have qualified for the first time in over 2 decades and the Thistle Lads are excited. 

    This is easily one of our most self-indulgent episodes, in which we discuss the history of the Scottish National Football team, the players & games through the years and give you a wee hint on who to look out for in the tournament. 

    We also ramble on about our favourite Scottish Football memories (there are not many) & finish off the episode with an interview with Tony Joseph who tells us all about what it's like to be drafted in the famous Tartan Army, so come take a shot down memory lane, see if you can score some laughs.

    James McAvoy: Scottish Heartthrob, X-Men & Fassbender Fan Fiction

    James McAvoy: Scottish Heartthrob, X-Men & Fassbender Fan Fiction

    A Scottish Podcast About Scotland!

    This week we talk about the handsome and talented James McAvoy. He may be the greatest Scottish actor of our time, but he is definitely one of the most hardworking and eclectic. 

    We discuss his background, his career and his numerous appearances on the Graeme Norton Show. X-Men, Atonement, Last King of Scotland, Filth, Arthur Christmas & Split; some are better than others, but James is excellent in all of them.

    Edinburgh Part 2: The Accents, The Fringe & Charles Darwin

    Edinburgh Part 2: The Accents, The Fringe & Charles Darwin

    A Scottish Podcast About Scotland!

    It's part 2 of the deep dive into Edinburgh. This week we talk about the accents around town, the famous people who've lived there, the famous Edinburgh Festival and its Fringe. 

    Our feelings on Scotland's capital are complicated, but I think in the end begrudgingly we accept that it might be a fairly interesting town to visit.

Not a GB Girl

I enjoy listening to you boys on my way to and from work. You have inspired me to listen to more than just “I’m Gonna Be” and read several books I never would’ve reached for. Thank you for creating such a fun podcast!
