Chris Deerin's guest this week is Kate Forbes, SNP Cabinet Secretary for Finance and young star of the independence movement.

She responds to the Institute of Fiscal Studies report which claims the manifestos for the May 6th Scottish Parliamentary elections are united by a "lack of credibility".

Also, New Statesman polling analyst Ben Walker joins the podcast to discuss the latest developments in the campaign.
