From Arabian Sultan to Lennox in “The Scottish Play”, it’s a good time to chat to Nicholas Karimi. This interview felt like the perfect way to round off a great Christmas season in Edinburgh. Join Nicholas and me as we talk method, Mamet and Macbeth. Thanks for all your feedback recently and for listening!

Frances Thorburn

A River City star with a soulful voice and chat to match? Yes indeed. Frances Thorburn is our guest this week and we discuss Scotland’s love for her new onscreen other half, her jazz singing career since the age of 14 and of course, Millie, who snores her way through the entire interview. I hope you don’t do the same. Thanks for listening!
