We return after a two week break due to my "man flu" to  a joint reaction to the last two week's events of "Ye whit!".

The overthrow of Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe kicks us off and Lesley focuses on the diaspora of Zimbabwe's talented women.Will they return and  what will their country be like post Mugabe?

I prove I'm no George Kerevan, as if that needed doing, as I get to grips with Hammond's Budget and its impact not just on the UK but Scotland.

Lesley picks up on the Chancellor's "new technology" mantra and reflects on last week's Arctic Circle Forum in Edinburgh.

We cannot resist the siren call of the jungle and we get stuck into Kezia Dugdale's I'm a Celebrity adventures.

All of this plus, politicians  "jokes", Harris Academy alumni,the glories of Dundee by night and the great Rodney Bewes.
