Podcast: Casting an eye over global affairs

John MacDonald, editor of Cable Magazine


What is Scotland’s place in the world? In the post-indyref, pre Brexit environment, can Scotland’s voice be heard amidst the light and heat of global politics?

Derek Bateman

As the EU faces upheaval, Russia flexes its muscles and Trump makes more protectionist noises in Washington, what of the Scottish perspective?

John MacDonald thinks Scotland should indeed have that voice. He is the academic and thinker behind CABLE, Scotland’s new international affairs online magazine. With just three issues online, he and his various contributors have established the venture quickly.

He joined Newsnet Radio host Derek Bateman and journalist and producer Maurice Smith to discuss the ideas behind Cable and the need for Scottish voices to be heard internationally. As always it is a fascinating listen.
