Scottish Independence Podcast 171 – Dr Philippa Whitford

800px-Official_portrait_of_Dr_Philippa_Whitford_crop_2The 171st episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast is mostly a speech by Dr Philippa Whitford (a previous guest on the show). I’m sure you do, but just in case you didn’t know, Dr Whitford MP is an SNP MP but before her time in politics she was a consultant breast surgeon, one who also worked as part of UN mission in Gaza and even a couple of years ago went to the West Bank to operare on four women suffering from Breast Cancer.

The speech, principally about the Scottish Health service, was at Clermiston and is reproduced here courtesy of Independence Live.

At the end of the speech I left the Q & A section in because most of the questions from the floor were, I imagine, exactly the ones the majority of listeners to this podcast would have asked, and she also gave some good responses.

Finally, before that main course of the podcast begins, I put in a little starter when it seemed, just for a second, that the BBC was going to go somewhere it never ever goes.

Hope you enjoy.

SCOTTISH INDEPENDENCE PODCAST 167 – Craig Dalzell on GERS and Currency

currency_cover.pngThe 167th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast is an interview with Craig Dalzell, Head of Policy and Research at the Common Weal.

We had a chat about the usual rammy every time the GERS figures come out (sorry for the swear word that it forced out of me, there is only one in the episode) and then we talked about the new paper the Common Weal have produced  How to Launch A Scottish Currency. If you want it as a pdf you’ll find it here.

Hope you enjoy.
