Two Minute Manifesto @ Wigtown Book Festival

Two Minute Manifesto is back in 2016 with a nation-wide tour of Scotland. We'll be heading to various locations across the country to source some of the best ideas we can lay our hands on. First up, we're sharing a show we recorded in October at the Wigtown Book Festival, where we talked immigration, sustainability and a whole lot more with the help of Galloway's finest.
