The Stooshie remains in summer recess but we have another special episode for you, this time looking at Scotland's drug deaths crisis. As new annual figures are released, we are reminded that the people behind the numbers are far more than a statistic; they are our friends, neighbours and family. Is it time for a more compassionate approach? Our sp…
 
The Stooshie is technically on holiday, but we wanted to bring you a special episode on our unmasking of two senior Conservative councillors as the puppet-masters behind anti-SNP troll accounts on social media. Who they are, what it means, what’s next. And don’t be fooled into thinking this is a local story for local people — this is a story as muc…
 
It’s the week in which security footage purports to show Health Secretary Matt Hancock in an embrace with a woman who isn’t his wife, and in which we unmask a Twitter troll as a senior Tory Councillor. But, far more divertingly, the Scottish Parliament is about the break for summer and so there’s an end of term vibe in the Stooshie virtual studio. …

Plus, a mental health crisis, with key posts left unfilled, and the scourge – and opp…
 
It’s the week in which explosive testimony from Dominic Cummings cast the UK government in a very dim light indeed. Of course, a dose of scepticism is advised given his track record, as the team discuss, but this is still the most explicit picture we’ve yet got of Boris Johnson’s administration’s response in the early days of the pandemic. Plus, co…
 
It’s the week in which First Minister Nicola Sturgeon unveiled her new cabinet, with some familiar faces returning to front-line posts. It also saw beleaguered Education Secretary John Swinney moved into a new post; the new role is an important one, to be sure, but was the move simply to take the heat out of the exams scandal? Plus, our investigati…
 
It’s the week in which new MSPs were sworn into parliament after the elections, and the team reflects on the richness and diversity of the new cohort.

With the results not expected until the weekend, we knew we couldn’t report on who’s won the election on this week’s show.

All the political parties have now set out their manifestos, and with doormats and pigeonholes and mail baskets across the nation groaning under the weight of party political leaflets, we ask how effective campaign literature is at getting the message across. Plus, we restrain ourselves from making the obvious pun at about 16:20. You can get a free…
 
Manifestos launched this week, with the SNP’s bold and generous spending plans immediately criticised for being unrealistically expensive, especially set against the absence of tax rises. But even away from the election, there are stories to unpack, including the news that the UK government is taking the Scottish Parliament to court over its plans …
 
It’s the week that the election campaign really lurched into life, and we’ve got a nice, easy-to digest summary of the latest polling, and what it feels like to part of a campaign in a pandemic. Plus: the Scottish Government’s flagship First Home Fund, which lends people up to £25,000 towards their deposit, runs out of cash after just a few days. Y…
 
This is the week that DC Thomson Media launched its Election Hub for The Courier and The Press & Journal, and it’s also the week in which we launched our own election manifesto which details how we pledge to help you make an informed decision this May. In this special episode, The Courier and The P&J’s editors are in conversation, explaining what t…
 
It’s the week in which a shiny new party burst onto the Scottish political scene. Led by former First Minister and SNP leader Alex Salmond, it seeks to help create a supermajority for independence, but our exclusive Survation polling suggests only 3% of voters would cast their ballots for the new Alba Party. What, then, will be its legacy, and how …
 
It’s the week in which Nicola Sturgeon survived a no-confidence vote and was judged not to have breached the ministerial code, in which the election campaign began in earnest, and in which our own Survation poll suggests the appetite for independence is on a knife-edge. We recorded this before Alex Salmond launched his new Alba Party, but at least …
 
It’s the week in which a dramatic leak from the inquiry into the Scottish government’s handling of the Salmond allegations suggests Sturgeon will be judged as having misled the inquiry; in which George Galloway says something offensive; and in which The Courier and Press & Journal begin an exclusive serialisation of extracts from Alastair Campbell’…

It’s the week in which Nicola Sturgeon gave evidence at the inquiry into the Scottish Government’s handling of the Alex Salmond sexual harassment allegations, so it seemed like a good chance to take stock.

It’s the week in which Alex Salmond gives evidence at his own inquiry, and in which a new poll shows both a lessening in support for independence and a 16-point drop in First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s usually bulletproof popularity. We also got details this week on Scotland’s route map for exiting lockdown, and can compare it to the UK government’…
 
It’s the week in which… well, for once, comparatively little happened, and after the last year, we’ll take it! We’re awaiting a statement next week on the roadmap out of lockdown from the Scottish government, and all eyes are on whether Alex Salmond will give evidence at his own inquiry. But there’s still plenty to discuss: the political judgements…
 
It’s the week in which the Salmond inquiry was rocked by further drama, in which the introduction of Scotland’s mandatory quarantine for inbound travellers had a bumpy launch, and in which the unevenness of support for Covid was laid bare. Join journalists from across the DC Thomson Media folio of newspapers, and from all across the country, to hel…
 
It’s the week in which Ochil and South Perthshire MP Luke Graham was ousted from Number 10’s “union unit” after a bitter row over strategy, in which we saw Scotland as the UK nation slowest to roll out vaccines, and in which we got to see how the sausage was made in local democracy. Join journalists from across the DC Thomson Media folio of newspap…
 
It’s the week in which the Prime Minister visited Scotland in a controversial bid to clasp a country more firmly to his bosom which opinion polls have shown time and again is becoming more pro-independence. Did it work? Should it have happened? Plus, how women’s rights groups were ‘fobbed off’ when they tried to get involved with the Brexit negotia…

It’s tough to criticise the NHS just now, but the latest scandal to hit NHS Tayside – and, in particular, chiefs’ stonewalling in the aftermath – is an important story to tell. Find out the details, hear of the Brexit reality biting at ports, dig into a potential Donald Trump visit to Scotland, and more, on this first episode of the new year. Join …

Plus, we have the latest revelations from the Salmond inquiry, and news of a new suspect in the Lockerbie bombing. The Stooshie will be taking a short break over Ch…
 
It’s the week in which Brexit crashed towards its final deadline (and if it feels like you’ve read that sentence a million times before, imagine how it feels writing it), in which the Scottish government came in for criticism over its handling of ferries and Bifab, and in which SNP CEO Peter Murrell, husband to First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, appea…
 
It's the week in which we learned that the coronavirus vaccine was to start almost-immediate roll-out – though there are lots of logistical challenges to be overcome. We also discuss the schisms in the usually-disciplined SNP, explain the latest on lockdown tiers and plans for Christmas, and there's a new Stoosh of the Week. Join journalists from a…
 
It's the week in which the Chancellor gave his Spending Review – but there were plenty of controversies in the decisions, especially for Scotland.

Join j…

We start, …
 
The Courier and Press & Journal have been showcasing 35 of the brightest political prospects north of the central belt in a series of interviews and features, and in this special episode of The Stooshie, P&J Investigations Editor Calum Ross sits down – virtually, of course – to talk to five of them, one from each of the major parties. There’s passi…
 
With polls suggesting the independence movement is gathering momentum, this week we’re delighted to welcome two veterans of the first independence referendum. Blair Jenkins, former chief exec of Yes Scotland, and Ramsay Jones, special adviser to David Cameron at the time, join our journalists to discuss why ‘no’ won in 2014, the effect of the UK an…
 
With poll after poll after poll showing an increase in support for Scottish independence – and with the latest from Ipsos MORI putting it at 58% – we discuss where the surge in support is coming from, what role the leaders in Holyrood and Westminster are playing, the consistent rise in the pro-indy female vote, and what it all means for Brexit, for…

Plus, a FMQ clash that left Nicola Sturgeon uncomfortable, Brexit, and…
 
Former senior adviser to Alex Salmond joins The Stooshie this week to talk about the SNP MP who travelled with Covid-19, President Trump’s positive result for the same, but, of course, most of all, Alex Salmond, Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP itself. Learn from the man on the inside about conspiracy theories, what kind of leaders Salmond and Sturgeon …
 
It’s the week in which an otherwise pretty dull press release dropped just before we started to record – but it also contained confirmation from all four UK governments that we’re at the start of a second wave of coronavirus. Our journalists focus on the implications of this, the impact of the local lockdowns and guidance across the country, the Ch…
