The Scottish Independence Podcast 49 – Billy Kay

bkwig5“…Labour ministers, culture ministers… one overheard, when she was asked if Scottish Studies should be part of the school curriculum replied ‘oh no, I’m not educating a generation of nationalists”

For the 49th episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast I spoke with Billy Kay.

Billy has for years been writing, broadcasting and producing material on Scottish Culture and Scots language, for the BBC and internationally.

We talked about his output and much more including the effect that the dearth of Scottish culture and history in our schools may have had on the population, the Scottish Insurrection of 1820, the campaign for hearts and heads and other things besides.

Hope you enjoy…
