Episode 9 - Ian Dunn

#9: Ian Dunn

In Episode 9 of apolitical we speak with Ian Dunn, Deputy Editor of the Scottish Catholic Observer and a columnist with CommonSpace. We chat about the part religion plays in politics; the influence of the Catholic Church on the voting habits of its adherents; and his challenging views on the difficulties facing the SNP in the future.



Amongst the topics we discuss with Ian on the podcast are:

• His involvement in politics as a youth;

• His reasons for writing about Scottish politics;

• The extent to which his faith informs his politics;

• Policies or parties that are incompatible with a Catholic faith;

• Separation of church and state;

• Why it’s all downhill from here for the SNP; and

• His thoughts on the future for Scottish politics.


Please join us in discussing these issues or any other raised in the podcast below, or find us on Twitter at @apoliticalpod.
