Support independent Scottish media
We have been changing our focus because of the coronavirus; we created a radio show for you (listen again to them all here); a new series about responses to the crisis (read them here); and a regular slot for musicians and artists, The Howff, plus all our regular features and columns.
We’re expanding this content to help you through the lockdown. You can Subscribe for free here.
But it’s not all about playlists and cultural content, it’s also about writing with a critical edge as we witness the dangerously shambolic political response to the crisis. For all of the talk of “we’re all in this together” and “this is no time to be political”, we think the opposite is true. While the crisis reframes everything and puts minor feuds in context, the reality is the situation is deeply political and the need for a functioning alternative media has never been more obvious.
But we need your support so we can keep delivering quality journalism that’s free open and independent. We are supported entirely by our readers. We don’t have corporate backers, we don’t take advertising, and we don’t hide our content behind a paywall, so we rely entirely on your support.
Please give whatever you can. Make a small monthly donation and support independent Scottish journalism.
Every contribution, however big or small, is valuable.
