Read All About It podcast mania with Margot McCuaig!

Margot McCuaig works in the busy and creative world of television, and is the Managing Director of mneTV, who are Scotland’s biggest producers of sport as well as producing a whole range of programmes on a variety of subjects.

She is also the founder of purple tv, an independent production company creating innovative digital media content and distinctive network and international television programmes. They’ve also produced a very interesting app, BookCityEdinburgh, which allows you to take a literary journey around Scotland’s capital city. You can get more information on it HERE

And if that’s not enough, Margot is also a novelist, with her debut novel, The Birds That Never Flew, published to great acclaim last year. I can vouch for its quality and would recommend you check it out HERE

Not surprisingly, Margot is very passionate about books, which made for a very entertaining and enjoyable Read All About It podcast.
