New Podcast Feature

Regular listeners will know that on the podcasts I have always tried to put on a range of guests as broad as the independence movement.

bukiobwcyaakgqq-largeI say “tried” because often people can’t come on because of prior engagements or are too nervous about sitting down to do an interview of half an hour or an hour. Indeed, the list of who I have asked to come on, compared to those who have come on, is much broader still.

However, I would still like to open it up to more and more people.

Therefore, if you have something you’d like to get off your chest,something funny, something you have noticed that you think needs attention, a question you’d like addressed, even just a 10 second comment, or something longer, why not record it as an mp3 and send it to me? Then I can stick it in the show and address your point.

This was you can have your say and not the pressure of a full interview (and anyway, there isn’t any real pressure – I don’t bite).

The vast majority of smartphones have an app already installed for doing this so it is incredibly easy. Record it and send it to the email you see here.

Obviously, there will be some rules for this…

  1. No racists
  2. No sexists
  3. No lunatics (this includes people who believe David Icke stuff)
  4. No Noel Edmonds
  5. I will not respond to unionist trolling unless I decide to show it up for what it is, good points may be addressed

Someone will have to do it, so I will be the judge on whether the comments sent in obey the rules.

Go for it. Trust me, people will be happy to hear you.

Scottish Independence Podcast 142 – The Demographics of Indy

Episode 142 of the Scottish Independence Podcast is a talk given by Dr Craig Dalzell (interviewed in episode 134)  at the recent Scottish Independence Convention.

vidcap_3Craig’s talk was with regard to who did and didn’t vote for independence last time round, how the picture has changed since then and what sort of strategies we should be looking at to get us over the 50% line.

It’s a very important listen, and thanks to Craig and to the good people at Independence Live for letting me reproduce it here.

Hope you enjoy…

The Scottish Independence Podcast 140 – Robert Somynne

img_6585For the 14oth episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast I invited journalist, vlogger and self-confessed foreign policy obsessive Robert Somynne to come on the show.

Obviously there isn’t much going on around the world at the moment so we had to talk about that wee thing that happened over in the USA a couple of weeks back.

I think it involved these people, although there have been furious denials about a couple of things.

The Scottish Independence Podcast 139 – Billy Kay

dfVeu1g_.jpegDid you know that it isn’t only Scotland that has “the cringe”? They have it in other places too, it just goes by a different name.

For the 139th (sort of) episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast I spoke with Billy Kay, and the above is only one of the subjects we talked about.

Billy has for years been writing, broadcasting and producing material on Scottish Culture and Scots language, for the BBC and internationally, and is often to be seen giving talks around the country. He also currently has a show you can listen to on the iplayer… Scotland’s Black History.

I asked him to come on because he is one of the best qualified people to talk about the importance of building confidence in Scottish culture, and how that plays into the campaign for Scottish Indepence.

At the end of the episode there is also a little Robert-the-Brucie bonus, which regards this.

Hope you enjoy.
