The Upside of a “Yes” Vote
Crawford Gribben

Good evening, podcast listeners!

This week we invite two guests to discuss the looming Scottish independence vote. First, Crawford Gribben, professor of history at Queen’s University Belfast, speaks with host Richard Aldous about both the historical roots and political implications of this Thursday’s referendum, which at this point remains too close to call. Then, we welcome back Walter Russell Mead, who discusses what to make of the Queen’s comments on the issue over the weekend, before taking a look at what independence would mean for Scotland in the context of the European Union and NATO.

Be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, and follow our host Richard Aldous @RJAldous, Crawford Gribben @GribbenC, and Walter Russell Mead @wrmead on Twitter.
