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 off the conference.

Before we get to those however, there is a little excerpt of a talk given by Craig Murray, in which he explains we he thinks for Indyref 2 we need to get international observers.

Hope you enjoy.

The Scottish Independence Podcast 136 – Robin McAlpine of The Common Weal

For the 136th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast, I spoke with Robin McAlpine.

article-3651

Robin is a political strategist and the Director of the Common Weal.

In the interview he doesn’t waste any time getting on to what the thinks Yes supporters ought to be getting on with, and there is certainly a lot to chew on in the interview.

We talked about both logistics and strategy and how they are both equally important. We also spoke of what messages we need to be sending out and how to react to the inevitable negative tactics we will face from the unionist side in the next referendum.

Hope you enjoy.

The Scottish Independence Podcast 134 – Dr Craig Dalzell on Scotland’s Currency Options

Gt1wRDr8.jpg largeFor the 134th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast, I spoke with Dr Craig Dalzell.

Craig recently wrote a paper outlining the possible currency options for an independent Scotland. This is important work because an aspect of the Yes side that was much criticised during and after the 2014 referendum was the perceived lack of a strategy on what to do about currency. I say “perceived” because much of it came down to perception, not fact.

We talked about why the 2014 plan may or may not have been right at the time, but probably wouldn’t be the correct strategy for indyref 2.

Would the Euro work? Scottish Pound? A crypto-currency?

We also talked about what the hell a crypto-currency actually is.

And of course, I asked Craig why he supports Independence for Scotland.

Hope you enjoy.
