In this week's @lesleyriddoch podcast we discuss the arrival of new 'National' newspaper; what does it need to do to succeed? Lesley wrote about this topic for 'Comment Is Free' and spoke about it at a very energetic SNP meeting in Leith about the 'Alternative Media'.
We also discuss fracking and follow up the Sunday Post column about Ineos and weave in the news about Pelamis, the marine energy company.
Lesley touches on the Radical Independence Campaign event in the armadillo, the SNP event in the Hydro. 50:50 cabinets, the Comrie Conversation, the Forward Festival of Conversation in Elgin and stuff.
