Shetland born Maxie Bain has returned home after living south most of his life, both teaching and painting.
With his current exhibition in Bonhoga Beach Scenes and other obsessions he talks to podcast host Marjolein about his life's journey and craft.
Comedian Sara Pascoe was in Shetland last weekend for a stand up show at Mareel.
She speaks to fellow comedian and podcast host Marjolein Robertson about the world of stand up.
Pascoe discusses how she first began performing stand up, as well as the ins and outs of touring. And she tells more about appearing on panel shows including QI and Mock The Week.
The stand up show is reviewed in 24th November edition of The Shetland Times.
Ashlea Tulloch talks to podcast host, Marjolein Robertson, about the Shetland Befriending Scheme.
It is a voluntary organisation providing one-to-one support for people of all ages within Shetland.
Ashlea tells how she first became involved, explains the scheme and discusses previous voluntary work she has done including Oxjam Music Festival and a sponsored motorbike run.
This week Marjolein Robertson talks to her Dad, Frank Robertson about his life on the croft as a boy.
This episode was first recorded as a trial, but we thought it was too good to let it go without publishing it.
Frank shares anecdotes from working with the crops and animals on the croft. To talking about the changes in Shetland since the oil.
We hope you enjoy his stories.
