ScotIndyPod 161 - Christians for Indy

10/22/2017
More
I noticed that the only people I hadn't had on the show among the conveners and voting organisations were Elaine C. Smith (I've tried - can't seem to get in touch with her), AyeScotland, Christians For Independence and Pensioners for Independence. I then immediately tweeted out asking if any of those organisations would like to come on the show for a talk about independence. The first I managed to organise something with (and I'll be working on the others shortly) were Christians for...

ScotIndyPod 160 - Ian Hamilton

10/15/2017
More
The 160th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast is an interview with Ian Hamilton QC, probably most know for going down to London with some friends and /taking back/stealing/repatriating/borrowing (delete as you wish) The Stone of Destiny/Scone. I have always wanted to have him on the show but unfortunately it wasn't me that got to interview him, it was instead Mike Small of Bella Caledonia (Bella also has a fundraiser), who has allowed me to make it up into an episode here. We get...

10/7/2017
More
The 159th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast features a talk given at the Edinburgh SNP Club last night by Colin Fox of the SSP. Colin always speaks well and this time was no different. As well as being his usual genial self however, he also spoke about some of the difficulties the independence movement is in and how we can get out of them. Hope you enjoy.

ScotIndyPod 158 - How Bad & Incompetent The UK Government Is

9/30/2017
More
"In the case of Brexit, I heard assurances throughout the course of the mission and yesterday at the human rights council from the government that Brexit would not lower protection from environmental threats. However, I also heard, or actually did not hear any clear assurances of how that would be the case. There have been statements from members of government saying that existing laws will be maintained WHEREVER PRACTICAL AND DESIRABLE, which I find very worrying." The 158th episode of...

ScotIndyPod 157 - Anna Arqué on Catalonia

9/18/2017
More
The 157th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast is the second time on the show for Anna Arqué. Anna has been a long-time campaigner for Catalan independence and also works for the International Commission of European Citizens. I asked her about the preparations for the Independence Referendum they are about to have and also about the measures that the Spanish government is using to try and disrupt the process. I also asked her how the people are reacting to some of these measures...

ScotIndyPod 155 - A Party Political

It's good to give time to your opponents, , so for the 155th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast I've decided to cover this election broadcast by the Scottish Conservatives.

ScotIndyPod 154 - McSmörgåsbord

4/28/2017
More
At the moment there isn't really enough talk about choices. Everything is being presented as either a future in Brexit UK (with all the lack of choices that entails), or an independent future in the EU. However there are more options than that available. If one looks to Scandinavia it is possible to see many different types of engagement and activity with Europe, from full membership and trying to change things from within, to various kinds of halfway house. In this talk presented here in...

ScotIndyPod 152 - Crying 'Wolf!'

4/11/2017
More
For the 152nd episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast I’ve pulled together some of the recent notable comments by some pro-indy folks and by some unionists. The Tories seem to want to deny everything, some people are trying to ramp up the hysteria and others are trying to calm it all down. In the middle of it all Gordon Brown made another intervention, and then went away again without anyone noticing. Apart from that, the BBC edited Nicola Sturgeon rather sneakily, and there are two...

ScotIndyPod 149 - Something Fishy

3/15/2017
More
A recent episode of the Lesley Riddoch podcast mentioned a couple of things regarding what's going to happen to fishing and agriculture in Scotland post-brexit. I felt what they were talking about was so important that we should go straight to the horse's mouth, and then to the horses a***s (Mundell & Farage). So for the 149th episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast I've pulled together the relevant comments and something fishy does indeed seem to be going on. Hope you enjoy. LINKS...

ScotIndyPod 148 - Sweeties

3/13/2017
More
I had just put together and mastered episode 148 of the Scottish Independence Podcast before Sturgeon announced that we're going for Indyref 2, so it doesn't have any of that in it. I hope you'll still find it funny and/or infuriating though. Hope you enjoy.

Due to a large quantity of people I'm going to interview soon being on holiday, just to keep things ticking over, episode 147 of the Scottish Independence Podcast is a few interesting clips pulled from here and there that you may have missed.

First of all, a huge thank you to all of you who donated in our little fundraiser. You've secured the podcast for another year and we're very grateful. Episode 146 of the Scottish Independence Podcast continues the series of talks given at the recent Scottish Independence Convention and has a couple of little bonuses thrown in too. There are another two talks featured. The first was given by Lesley Orr of Women For Indy, and the second by Patrick Harvie, and this was his speech to round...

TPS 20 - Where We're At

5/2/2015
More
This time Ivan and I did a little Saturday review show. Where are we at in the campaign? Where's it going to go from here? Is Project Fear 2 going to work? We also have William Duguid on the latest barkings of the Milibeing and the concept that Scotland was encouraged to lead, and not leave, the united (sic) kingdom (capitals deliberately not used).

TPS 18 Hunting & Animal Welfare

4/30/2015
More
In this episode I speak with Dr Morag Kerr. Morag is a veterinary surgeon and also the author of Adequately Explained By Stupidity, a book about the Lockerbie disaster. We talked about Cameron's plan to hold a free vote on legalising hunting and more generally about the case against hunting, and for better animal welfare policies.

TPS 17 - Minimum Wage V Living Wage

4/29/2015
More
In this episode I spoke to Robin McAlpine about the minimum wage and the living wage. Why aren't they the same thing? What are the differences between the various parties on these issues. More importantly, is there a better way to look at the while issue? William Duguid has excelled himself again too. This time he's keeping us all up to date on the latest from the Ministry of Patronising Pish.

TPS 16 - TTIP

4/28/2015
More
In this episode Ivan and I had a chat about TTIP. What are the big problems with it, why is it so secretive and why don't the coalition government and that other neoliberal party seem to want to use some of the veto powers that are rumoured to be in there? William Duguid's Terminalogical Inexactitude of the day this time features the Tories getting caught out on one yesterday.

TPS 15 - Not Going Back In The Box

4/27/2015
More
This time I was joined by writer, tutor, campaigner, ex-cop & more than I can put here, Karen Campbell. We talked about a recent statistic showing that a much higher percentage of women in Scotland, as compared to England are likely to vote. Why would that be so? Also, we talked about the broader situation and why Scotland is not "going back in the box".
