Sharply-Focused Pro-Indy Weekly Roundup

Brief to-the-point reaction to the week’s news re. Scotland’s independence, and a wee counterbalance to the mainstream anti-independence media. Just the one guy - Stephen - so no discussion, but lifts the lid on the UK govt’s handling of Scottish constitutional issues, finding the right holes to pick.

Review

How about new guests? Maybe branch out with topics too. Stick to politics if you wish, but maybe explore new areas I.e. powers of councils, state of Scottish media, Scottish devolution, land reform.
Common space podcast does this quite well.

Utter drivel

These podcasts are 7 minutes too long.
The guy is clueless as to people’s views on independence. He states the union is coming to and end, he couldn’t be further from the truth, and time and again misses all the obvious reasons why. The podcast is an utter shambles. I only listened as a friend advised me to listen to a couple to witness how utterly pathetic they are.
