Each week, award-winning broadcaster and journalist, Lesley Riddoch chews over the week’s news with former media lecturer and Dundee United fan, Pat Joyce. If you like intelligent, quirky chat about Scottish society and culture, and Scottish, UK and international politics analysed from a Scottish perspective; this podcast is for you.

This week's podcast was recorded live at the Butterfly Cafe in Dundee.

Lesley was just about to jet off to sunny Croatia and we took advantage of the cafe's good auspices to podcast from the children's play area( highly appropriate I hear you cry!).

So, not only will you hear herself and me but ,to the background of happy coffee drinkers ,you'll meet the bold wee Felix and his mum enjoying themselves with the Lego( other plastic building bricks are available).

In the midst of all this Lesley manages to chat about the leak of the Labour manifest, and the exclusion of the Greens from much of the General Election coverage both north and south of the border.

I cover the ongoing Tory election expenses scandal.

And we both try and get our heads round the "You're fired" moment featuring Donald Trump and the erstwhile head of the FBI.
