In Episode 34 of Apolitical we welcome Cat Boyd as our third guest of Season 2. Cat is the first candidate on the regional list for Glasgow for RISE, is a co-founder of the Radical Independence Campaign and writes regularly for The National, CommonSpace and many other outlets.
Amongst the topics we discuss with Cat on the podcast are:
• Her early introduction to politics;
• What inspired her activism and how it developed during the referendum campaign;
• Her political icons;
• What RISE is and how it can be distinguished from other groups and from political parties;
• Thoughts on setting the rate of Income Tax in Scotland;
• Encountering and fighting mysogyny;
• Her outlook on Scotland’s future.
Please join us in discussing these issues or any other raised in the podcast below, or find us on Twitter at @apoliticalpod.
