Podcast: The woman in charge at George Square


What do you do when you get one of the most powerful women in Scottish local government in front of a microphone? Well you ask her all about the job, what she wants to achieve, and a few of your own hobby-horses too. Like buskers with amplifiers, who are too noisy for Derek Bateman’s liking.

Our podcast host raised all this and more with Susan Aitken, the ebullient leader of Glasgow City Council, who swept to power for the SNP last May. Susan, seen as one of the most creative leaders in local government, has a big job on her plate, with her party having displaced Labour for the first time in 40 years.
