Edinburgh-based online radio station EHFM have once again kindly agreed to host Fest weekly in August, for a show that coincides with each issue of the magazine. Every Monday, Arusa and Ben will run through their highlights, chat to special guests and play some tunes to get everyone in the festival spirit. 

In episode one, they spoke to multidisciplinary performance artist Jian Yi about their show Weathervaves at Summerhall and actor Declan Bennett about his electric, funny and raw autobiographical debut Boy Out The City. Plus, they spoke about Fest's preview issue, upcoming highlights across the Fringe and EIF and what they're most excited about in the coming week.
