I’m deep in the Border hills up the Yarrow Valley outside Selkirk where we’re enjoying the Common Riding when news reaches me via the telegraph that the latest edition of the radio programme is ready. It’s at http://batemanbroadcasting.com/episode-2-business-arts-media/. I hope -and is a mixture of arts, media and business where we hear what the interviewees really think.
Pat Kane gives us analysis of the Scottish psyche – why do so many Scots look beaten and can’t make eye contact? What happened to our confidence?
Michelle Thomson isn’t short of chutzpah. She leads Business for Scotland and we hear how the very thing you need in order to take national independence is belief, exactly the same ingredient so vital to business success.
Kevin McKenna has been in print journalism so long he’s like a rolled up newspaper. And beneath that thoughtful exterior he sometimes shows he can beat you with it too. We discuss bias in the media and he turns the tables and interviews me!
Amanda is in the road again with an intriguing interview with a social charity find raiser and the whole package comes in under an hour of listening. Tell your friends it’s there. Remember, unlike, the BBC, it’s free.
Up with the Souters…
