Podcast #2: with Mary McCabe, Part 1

Our podcasts are all listed on the dropdown menu at the top of the page.

This is our second podcast recorded on 18th December in the IndyLive Radio studio in Glasgow as part of the IndyLive Daily Show. It was an all women team that morning with Val on the mixing desk and me doing most of the chat with Mary McCabe. In fact it was not only a women’s takeover it was a P4Indy takeover, since we are all three of us involved with P4Indy. LtoR: Mary, Marlene, Val:

Val introduces Mary. We talk about how P4Indy came to be set up in the aftermath of the 2014 referendum and why Mary and I decided to get involved with the group. We talk about what approach Mary thinks works best to persuade more over65s to support independence. We find out about The Warblers entertainment group. All this in just 20 minutes. But Mary stayed on for the rest of the programme and there’s another podcast to come from our chat later on in the programme.

Podcast #1: On Our Stall in Milngavie

This is our first podcast! Recorded on 29 Nov 2019 in Milngavie, East Dunbartonshire, a couple of weeks before the General Election.

We talked to Jennifer and Brian, two of the team who run the Milngavie stall. They told us why they’ve become involved with Pensioners for Independence and what how they feel about approaching complete strangers to see if they are willing to talk about Scottish independence.

We also talked to two passers by who had stopped to get some information about P4Indy. Originally from Yorkshire, they lived and worked in Orkney for quite a few years and have now retired and moved down to Aberfeldy. They are convinced supporters of Scottish independence and see it as a positive and natural move for Scotland to be in charge of its own affairs and take its own place in Europe and the wider world.
