Podcasts to Start off the Semester

Welcome back! Now Freshers’ Week is over, it seems we will all have a lot more time to get used to our cobbled streets again. So why not begin the academic year with some enjoyable content for your ears? Listen while cooking, cleaning, walking to lectures and, my personal favourite, hungover mornings in bed.

Starfields 2016: St Andrews Style Festival

What makes a festival? Look it up in an Oxford dictionary and you will find, ‘a festival oriented towards music that is sometimes presented with a theme such as musical genre, nationality, or locality of musicians, or holiday.’ Did Starfields do this definition justice?

Freshers’ Guide: Easy Veggie Frittata

I don’t know about you, but cooking has been just about the last thing on my mind since being back in St Andrews.
