The Scottish Independence Podcast 60 – (Prof) John Robertson

For the 60th episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast I spoke with John Robertson.

John is the _73505013_73505010academic that recently published extensive research showing that the BBC has been favouring the No side in the Scottish Independence debate.

The story however did not end there as the BBC began a series of, well, sleekit manouevres to play the man and not the ball. This resulted in, amongst other things, his appearance in front of a committee in the Scottish Parliament at which certain members seemed determined to continue the defamation.

We talked about the research, the aftermath and John’s more general opinions on the media and why Scotland should be an independent country.

My dog Marvin also made his first appearance on the podcast, throwing in his political tuppence-worth.

Hope you enjoy.

  1. that was a really interesting interview. If only John was on tv as much as John Curtice. Maybe a campaign on Avaaz or 38 Degrees for a John Swap?
