In this episode of Scran, which was recorded ahead of Father's Day, I chat to Billy and Alistair Walker about how whisky has shaped their careers.

Nick Nairn also joins me on a call to discuss his career highlights - from being the youngest Scottish chef to receive a Michelin star to cooking for the queen.

Nick also shares his cooking tip for this episode, how to make perfect pasta.

Finally I talk about what I've been eating and drinking at home over the last two weeks.
