Each week in the podcast, we try to cover issues and veer away from personalities. We try to give the big picture, the slightly irreverent and passionate. It can sometimes sound like a rant. This week it's different.
We wanted to reflect, as people, on the passing of Michael Marra. There's some emotion and some real affection for a gentleman who made the world a better place.
Equally, our friend Jean Urquhart's resignation has touched many and gave pause for thought to others. Finally, in the midst of benefits reform and overhaul, Lesley wanted to tell Kathleen's story. One woman in a system that didn't work.
It's a serious, sombre podcast this week.
