The 174th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast is just a little teaser and a way of saying the podcast will be back for a little summer season and hopefully beyond.

Hope you enjoy.

Rank #2: ScotIndyPod 173 - Poverty and Human Rights in the UK

Podcast cover
Read more
"I think if you had got a group of mysogynists in a room and said 'guys, how can we make this system work for men and not for women?', they wouldn't have come up with too many other ideas than what is already in place".

The 173rd episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast is the much talked about report by the UN Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, talking about the UK.

It's so important I was going to just read the whole thing out and put that out as a podcast but fortunately for me there was a presentation and a Q&A, and here it is.

Hope you enjoy.

Rank #3: ScotIndyPod 172 - Clive Ponting

Podcast cover
Read more
The 172nd episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast is a speech given by Clive Ponting.

Ponting is a famous whistleblower who exposed the UK Government over the sinking of The Belgrano, an act many believe to be a war crime. He has also authored a number of books exposing various levels of skulduggery and/or incompetence at Whitehall.

This episode comes from a recent talk he gave in which he goes into those things, but also why he now resides in Scotland, why he loves it, and why he supports Scottish Independence.

Hope you enjoy.

Rank #4: Scottish Independence Podcast 171 - Dr Philippa Whitford

Podcast cover
Read more
The 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.

Rank #5: Scottish Independence Podcast 170 - Mike Russell On Brexit & More

Podcast cover
Read more
The 170th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast is mostly a speech by Mike Russell regarding the (bleak) situation with Brexit and people really should hear it. I am reproducing the talk here and thanks to Newsnet for allowing me to do so.

There are also a couple of cameos, Martin Compston gets it right and Ruth Davidson gets it wrong, American Embassy staff paint a frightening picture and John Swinney loses his sh*t.

Hope you enjoy.

Rank #6: Scottish Independence Podcast 169 - Thomas Muir Lecture 2018 by Gerda Stevenson

Podcast cover
Read more
"I have devoted myself to the cause of the people. It is a good cause. It shall ultimately prevail. It shall finally triumph." – Thomas Muir’s speech from the dock, Edinburgh, August 1793.

Courtesy of Phantom Power, the 169th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast features the Thomas Muir lecture for 2018, which was given by Gerda Stevenson with

As well as being an actress and a musician, Gerda Stevenson is the author of Quines: Poems in tribute to women of Scotland and in the lecture you can find out which Scottish woman was an inspiration to Walt Whitman and Mary Shelley, and which Scottish woman is known in Serbia as "Our Mother from Scotland"?

That and much more.

First up however, is an introduction by Murray Armstrong, author of The Liberty Tree, who explains who Thomas Muir was, and why it is important to remember him.

Hope you enjoy.

Rank #7: ScotIndyPod 168 - Spitting The Dummy & Lovebombs

Podcast cover
Read more
The 168th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast is a mix of some recent things that you won't want to miss.

Here you'll find a psychic that didn't seem to predict the consequences of telling a nation of people to go f*ck itself, or how much of an idiot she would like when she was doing it.

There is also a good speech from Westminster which provides good and useful historical information on the history of Scottish home rule. However, given that the speech was delivered in Westminster, it was accompanied by quite a lot of petulant, ill-informed and childish nonsense that came from the government benches.

Finally, which Tory MP seems to want a large number of Scottish people to commit suicide? I imagine that some of you reading this are saying "quite a few of them want that" to yourselves, which is possibly true, but one of them said it out loud in public.

Hope you enjoy.

Rank #8: ScotIndyPod 167 - Craig Dalzell on GERS and Currency

Podcast cover
Read more
The 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.

Hope you enjoy.

Rank #9: Scottish Independence Podcast 166 - Pensioners for Indy and more

Podcast cover
Read more
The 166th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast features, amongst other things, an interview with Peter Swain of Pensioners for Independence (courtesy of Independence Live).

You'll also find out why I was very tempted to call the episode "Archie, Archie, What's the Score?", even if part of that joke will only make sense if you were born before 1985.

I also had to include Boris Johnson, or as he is known in Scotland, Bawjawz, trying to justify some of the worst Tory behaviour. As he does so, he is kind enough to show just how far removed from you and the rest of reality in the process.

Finally, there's a semi-unrelated part relating to how the BBC will shut down certain discussions if you go off script.

Hope you enjoy.
