For episode 22 of The Scottish Independence Podcast, I spoke with Nighet Nasim Riaz who is a PhD student, SNP activist, member of Women for Indy and avid people-watcher.
We spoke about her PhD and about what convinced her, as someone who had lived in England prior to coming to Scotland, of the case for Indy.
We also spoke about the work that Women For Indy have been doing around the country and what effects we hope it might have. The recent SNP conference, which she attended, was another topic of discussion as was what attracted her to join that party.
The debate going on in the Asian community was a small topic. Is it any different from the debate among other people in the country, and if so, why should it be?
Finally, the effect of having mostly male panels on political talk shows came up.
A couple of more general announcements, the April Fools episode seemed to go down rather well with almost 1400 of you having a listen to that so thanks again to all the contributors and we hope everyone that heard it enjoyed it.
