This week Ricky will be talking to Christopher Brookmyre about humanism as well as his new Glasgow novel 'Where The Bodies are Buried.' We'll try to understand something about what we are now calling "The English Riots" (though possibly only for fear they could happen here too) by chatting to Nigel Cowgill who is a Methodist Minister in Croydon and Alastair McIntosh (author of Soil and Soul) to see if their experience lets us understand what might have been going on and what happens next.
Bob Dickson has recorded a thoughtful piece about the Thomas Wode manuscripts for us, and Ron Ferguson has written a beautiful new memoir about George McKay Brown called 'The Wound and The Gift' and he comes in to chat with Ricky Ross. All this and a the usual great mix of music, don't miss it.
