With the Commonwealth Games underway, here's another chance to hear Cathy's interview with one of Scotland's greatest athletes, the rower Katherine Grainger.

And we speak to two people on hand to provide spiritual guidance and support to the Commonwealth Games athletes, officials and workers. Chaplains, Ravinder Kaur Nijjar and Rehanah Sadiq, talk about their work at the Religion and Belief Centre in the Athletes' Village.

With a Palestinian father and a Jewish mother, Claire Hajaj knows what it's like growing up between clashing cultures, and understands what it means to belong to or not belong to the 'right' tribe. She explains how her parents' story inspired her debut novel, Ishmael's Oranges.

Our reporter Bonita Monsiegner spends a day walking around the Scottish capital in the company of Ollie Buchanan and Zishan Ashraf, the creators of The Humans of Edinburgh Project. They've been capturing portraits and stories of people on the streets of Edinburgh, which will result in an exhibition opening at the Just Festival in August.

And Cathy is joined by the Reverend Canon Gideon Byamugisha, an Anglican Priest, scholar and activist from Uganda. He talks about living with HIV and the discrimination and stigma around HIV/Aids.
