Review: Wonder by Shawn Mendes

2nd January 2021

Rothery Sullivan gives us her take on Mendes’ entry for cringiest album of 2020. Wonder, an album dedicated to the other half of the world’s smuggest couple and fellow Señorita collaborator, Camilla Cabello, will leave you smiling. Maybe because you’ve laughed the whole time, or maybe because it’s over. Either way, it’s worth the listen ...


The GG team’s top albums of 2020

31st December 2020

 Ah, the prestigious GG AOTY awards. Somewhat akin to the Grammys, without the shady snubs, The Glasgow Guardian team have assembled to bring you their top picks from a year in which music wasn’t live with a pint in hand, but rather alone in your room, staring out the window, and perhaps genuinely missing the ...

In a Spotify-style Book Wrap, Jordan shares her favourite reads.

30th December 2020

With the recent closure of Cineworld and Picturehouse cinemas, many are asking the horrifying question: is this the end of the cinema industry?

Review: Dolly Alderton’s Ghosts

29th December 2020

Alderton’s debut novel is an instant hit to get stuck into as the days get shorter and the nights get darker. When I heard that Dolly Alderton was back on the bookshelves this October, I couldn’t help but get excited. A few years ago, I read her 2018 memoir Everything I Know About Love and ...

The race for the base

28th December 2020

Can moon water pave the way to Mars? NASA has discovered water on the sunlit surface of the Moon for the first time.

An app to help your mental health?

28th December 2020

Researchers at UofG are collaborating on an app to help mental health, but is the app store already filled with similar programmes? Over the course of this past year, the gradual escalation of the Covid-19 pandemic has not only dramatically disrupted many of our regular routines and activities, but the long-lasting implications of the disease ...

28th December 2020

An international student explores whether it’s worth it to return to live in Glasgow next semester.
