Lesley returns refreshed from her holiday on Uist and is (almost) unbearably smug about how sunny it was.

We kick off with her reflections on the break and then slide into that complex set of relations between the SNP , the broader Yes movement, and the SIC .However, dinnae fash yirsels chums we tap into that 1967 summer of love vibe and explore the importance of fun ,community, culture and disco in rediscovering and reinventing not only ourselves but Scotland.
