This week’s @lesleyriddoch Podcast starts by trying to unpick BBC2’s “Scotland:For Richer or Poorer?” and Channel4’s “The Great British Break-Up?”.
Both programmes seem to illustrate a couple of problems which are leading to ‘debate fatigue’ and we try and understand them. There is also a mention of intimidation which Lesley wrote about and we examine that in a bit more detail. Lesley also offers a few thoughts about how this malaise in the #indyref could be addressed.
Which in turn leads to some views about transport infrastructure priorities and Glasgow Airport Rail Link. Judging from Twitter and other comments, this is a big issue waiting to happen.
We also talk about “Time To Dump Trident For Good" and Lesley reveals more of the background to why the polls don’t always reflect the reality of Scots’ opinions about nuclear weapons. If you are interested in the issue of Trident then Lesley does give some very good insights into the way 'opinion' is often massaged.
And, just because we are not suffering from 'Debate Fatigue' ; please check out the ways of accessing the podcast; there is a ‘Lesley Riddoch Podcast’ page over at Facebook . You can get the Lesley Riddoch Podcast on a free subscription on iTunes here. And, if Android is your platform of choice, we hear good things about ‘Pocketcasts’ - here is a direct link to the Feisty Podcasts and there are some other resources here as well.
Please enjoy this week's podcast.
