You can download the episode directly here.

This week, Craig presents another collection of recent public talks from Common Weal and at some of our events. First up, Colin Turbett talks about the history and principles of care in Scotland and how this should inform the development of the National Care Service.

Next, Peter Krykant recently spoke at our monthly activists’ meeting where he and others discussed the policy landscape around drugs and the criminal justice system in Scotland.

And finally, Craig spoke to Global Justice Now about the plan in Scotland to create two Freeports, how they will operate, what impact they’ll have on the Scottish economy and why the Scottish Government is supporting them.
