Artistic Director of Glasgow's Tron Theatre, Andy Arnold, talks about Mayfesto, a month of politically engaged performance, including a modern, mostly female production of The Tempest.

Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger, performs live in studio and reveals where on Scotland's streets he's planning to go busking.

Critic Jenny Niven chooses three must-read books for May, in The Culture Studio's new monthly book picks.
