For A’ That 41 – Shout!

Bhk8BJBIYAAXPzsFor the 41st episode of the For A’ That podcast Andrew and I were joined by broadcaster and blogger Derek Bateman, former Socialist MSP and member of Women For Indy, Carolyn Leckie and writer and blogger William Duguid.

First we talked about the Sturgeon/Lamont stramash. At the risk of going against one of the things we thought was bad about it, was the real knockout blow actually delivered to the political process itself? Is it too simple just to say it was awful and move on? Were they both equally guilty? Do we (or well, the media) need to start using alternative formats?

Secondly we talked about the recent activities of the Tory government who seem to have been going round businesses begging them to say something negative about independence. Should we just be a bit stronger and tell them where to go?

Another topic was the Women for Indy project and the report it is going to publish shortly. Carolyn let us know what the main problems and outcomes were, and how much work there still is to do in this crucial area.

We also got on to the crowdfunding stories in the last week. Amazing, certainly, but why has this phenomenon started to gather pace and can we be sure the money is going where it’s needed most?

There is all that and more in the new episode.

The Scottish Independence Podcast 53 – William Duguid

duguidIt’s the 53rd episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast and this time I spoke with William Duguid who on his own blog and for National Collective, has been writing some of the funnier stuff we’ve been seeing recently.

In fact, that was one of the points of discussion, as we ruminated over Rory Bremner’s assertion that there isn’t enough comedy in this debate.

William lived down (very) south for a long time so we also talked about the gap (well, chasm) between what is actually going on in Scotland and how it is perceived in that place where people are going to be calling us all from soon.

We also talked about William’s reasons for supporting Indy.

Finally, although we didn’t have wind of Cameron’s attempt to boost the Yes vote by 10 percent at the time we recorded, Love-bombing got a look in.

There’s even some verse involved.bombing-peace-like-fucking-virginity--large-msg-120355623326
