It is difficult to categorize this podcast. It’s about the polling day and then the aftermath of the Referendum. We cover the media hype, the role of Alex Salmond  and the rise of 45. It’s a long listen and very emotional and “the referendum is over but the energy persists.” It is one of the most uplifting podcasts we’ve done

In a quick follow up to the ‘Stories’ podcast this week, Lesley runs through the other stories that happened below the radar.  If you were worried that other countries are not interested in this referendum; then listen to whom Lesley has been talking to. Hint – it’s Australian TV and radio and 20 plus Norwegian students 

 

We also talk to retired Lt Colonel Andrew Parrott who explains all the defence issues; simply and without panic.

 

And finally, we have tales from the front line to relate about broadcasters and balance. We also try to name check all the stars of the week.

This week’s @lesleyriddoch podcast comes from Orkney. Lesley has been talking about housing at the Orkney Science Fair and opening the Yes Shop in Kirkwall.  Ed Miliband has been in the news as well…but probably not in a good way. And there has been a YouGov poll which puts ‘Yes’ at 51% for the first time.
