This episode is a conversation between Mhairi Killin of Iona and myself.
Mhairi and I met in her office at Aosdana, on the Isle of Iona at the start of this week, half way through May of 2019.
We talk about a whole host of topics, a lot relating to our cultural identity and sense of place.
We even talk about Mhairi and her sister’s plans for what to do in the event of a nuclear attack.
We go into some detail about the life, ethos and work of the Ritchies of Iona, whose metal work is of significant cultural importance.
