Following my startling revelations over Burns' suppers Lesley reflects on this most Scottish of institutions.
I, moving swiftly on, consider just how important the Scot's language is to our national culture.
However it wouldn't be a podcast without Brexit and this week's no exception as we pull apart the Supreme Court's decision concerning the Sewel convention. Lesley wonders if this nit picking parliamentary approach is the right path to take to securing independence and shouldn't we be mapping out the kind of country we want to be rather than engaging in navel gazing.
Finally, there's no show without Punch, or Trump, and the prospect of our so called independent nuclear deterrent being under the effective control of the Donald is less than pleasant to consider for this pair of lefty peacenicks.

Welcome back to the first( or is it the second?) podcast of 2017.
This week Lesley is in fine form as she dashes through a packed past seven days.
There's her wee stushy wi' the man frae Brexit Central on Scotland tonight.
Theresa May's 12 point plan for( you guessed it) Brexit.
And the Scottish Independence Convention's conference in Glasgow.
I do a lot more listening and asking questions than normal( sighs of relief all round) as we wonder if the Scottish conversation has moved beyond the single market and free trade areas.
However I do manage to slip in some references to my football team.
