Honestly, what do you pick from this week's radio after all the gluttony - gastronomic and aural - of the last fortnight? For a start, there's an ode to what might possibly be next year's best-selling Christmas present - a mini-3-D printer; there are dark linguistic tales and misunderstandings taking place at an American airport news-stand. And a blast of fresh air to rejuvenate the skin and clear the head in the form of a very beautiful poetic trek through the Cairngorms.
