The Scottish Independence Podcast Episode 4 – Maxwell & Lamont

Episode 4 is up and this is a short one of only 12 minutes.

I speak with James Maxwell who is a Scottish political journalist whose work occasionally appears in the New Statesman and on Bella Caledonia.

We spoke about the declaration of defeat (in more ways than one) that was Johann Lamont’s speech this week.

That was 8 minutes.

The other 4 is the first contribution to the podcast from BBC Scotlandshire, which is also well worth the listen.

Enjoy…

The Scottish Independence Podcast Episode 3 – Rally For Independence

The third Scottish Independence Podcast is a little departure from our regular programming and is a run through some of the speeches at Saturday’s Rally For Independence.

The next podcast will be back to the normal format.

I had originally hoped to do this one in a rather different way with voxpops from the people in the audience instead of the speeches from the stage but for one reason or another it didn’t work out and so you go with what you’ve got.
Hope it is good listening for those of you who couldn’t go and provides some good memories for those of you who could.

Episode 2

This is the second Scottish Independence Podcast. This project is an attempt to discuss some of the real choices coming up for Scotland without the jingoism and, frankly, the silliness, that surrounds much of the debate at the moment.

It is hosted on spreaker and from there you can download it and listen at your leisure, or listen online. This is the link to the show’s page and this is the link to the rss feed.

It is also now available on itunes. You can subscribe to it there as well and if you left a positive review or rating that would be great.

This episode is  a conversation  between Michael Greenwell, who will be hosting the first few episodes, and Andrew Tickell aka Lallands Peat Worrier. They talk about some of the legal aspects of the referendum, some of the differences in voting intention by gender and social grouping and generally have a laugh.

Finally, if anyone would like to help with the project please get in touch with Michael on twitter. Specifically, he is looking for someone to record some voxpops with the people at the march tomorrow.
