Schooldays, Episode 4

Start listening

Paul Quinn wants to know what we remember about our school days, in particular the barriers to learning that we faced. What lessons can we learn now by thinking about the good and bad aspects of our schooling?

In this episode Paul talks to Willie Brown, who went to school in Glasgow in the 1960s, and thrived despite health and speech issues. He subsequently had a career in the civil service, but in retirement has pursued his interest in writing. His short story collection Twice Last Night was published in 2022.
