Despite being poorly and running around with "Previously....Scotland's History Festival " ; it was great to catch up with John MacKenzie; author, historian and raconteur. John is one of those academics who combines insight with enthusiasm. We sat down and had a wide ranging conversation. From views of the Empire through to independence; it was fascinating to pull apart the issues.
It was not the usual 'Lesley Riddoch Podcast' but the opportunity was too good to miss; an academic at close quarters ! Good craic ensued.
