For A’ That 24 – Charade, Hope & Charity

Radio On

For episode 24 of For A’ That Andrew and I had THREE guests for the first time, namely Natalie McGarryDoug Daniel and Ruaridh Waddell.

It was a busy week in Scottish politics and that was reflected in the number of subjects we had to get through.

Firstly, we beavered away trying to answer as many of the 500 questions as we possibly could.

Then we got onto the voluntary sector as some stories have come out recently saying that some organisations in this sector have some concerns about what might happen in an independent Scotland. We asked several things about this line of thinking, the first of them being is it actually true?

This led us on nicely to another commitment that the UK government has reneged on. I am sure you can think of a few so you’ll have to listen to find out which one we talked about.

Finally, we explained why, in spite of some not so good recent polls, we are mostly still feeling optimistic for the referendum.

Strangely, during the recording this week some animals WERE harmed, but only by other animals (namely my cat). The now defunct bird has been buried with all due honours. Furthermore, a sheep that had recently become a mother created havoc in another place where recording was going on and in a third place a bee delayed our beginning. All of this will explain the outro.

Hope you enjoy…
