It seems everyone spotted @lesleyriddoch on last week’s ‘Question Time’. It was a lively programme for a number of reasons as Lesley will explain. Equally, a 40 minute journey to Eigg turns into an adventure and an opportunity for new discoveries.

Lord George Robertson warns of 'Balkanisation' in the independence debate. Lesley was a panellist in a very energetic meeting at Adam Smith College  and understands some of the background to the recent Edinburgh University survey into young people's attitudes to the independence debate.  The High Streets across Scotland are failing, whilst radical cycling plans for Edinburgh are being proposed ( and opposed ). What is the solution?

We cover a lot of ground in this week’s podcast.
