Concluding part of our double-episode in conversation with author, DD Johnston, about his new novel, Disnaeland.

In this part, Darren discusses the novel’s relationship to the Scots language, the apocalyptic prophecies of radical, pre-Enlightenment Christianity, and his focus on mutual aid as a response to disaster. Darren also performs two further readings from the novel.
