Two for the price of one but with a warning

P1010730
  After this week's Scotsman podcast recording, a chance remark by Michael Fry prompted this energetic discussion about the Clearances.  If you are interested in Scottish history, land reform or robust debate; this recording is for you. Between Michael Fry, Andy Myles and Lesley Riddoch; this is a fairly heated and healthy discussion. Given the time to air opinion, rather than focus on sound bites; this is 25 minutes of energetic intelligent speech broadcasting.

Michael Fry, historian, Andy Myles, pundit, and Lesley met Friday to turn over the week's events. Expressions that feature this week include ; "the negotiating hand", "old fogies in charge", "the Scottish civil war" and "don't reduce history to iconic moments". Your delight, dear listener, will be to match the expression to variously; the Budget, Vince Cable, Edinburgh trams and the world cup. 

 Although we have one more Scotsman podcast planned next week with the Education supremo Mike Russell; you can still listen to the complete Feisty Productions catalogue here. Or click below to listen to it using the player below.

The "one election away from victory " podcast

This week's podcast features Gerry Hassan and John McTernan in a needle match.Listen to it and you'll be surprised to hear that Lesley was there at all.The subjects of the week were supposed to be the Labour Leadership hustings, the Savile Report and BP. However, the Labour Leadership kicked off a fast and furious analysis of the state of the Labour Party. John has been a special adviser for a number of Labour high flyers and naturally is positive in their defence. Gerry does not see things that way. Cue an interesting exchange.

We will shortly be going on holiday and there will a short break in the podcast schedule. It would be good to hear from you about subjects and contributors before we disappear.
