Following my startling revelations over Burns' suppers Lesley reflects on this most Scottish of institutions.
I, moving swiftly on, consider just how important the Scot's language is to our national culture.
However it wouldn't be a podcast without Brexit and this week's no exception as we pull apart the Supreme Court's decision concerning the Sewel convention. Lesley wonders if this nit picking parliamentary approach is the right path to take to securing independence and shouldn't we be mapping out the kind of country we want to be rather than engaging in navel gazing.
Finally, there's no show without Punch, or Trump, and the prospect of our so called independent nuclear deterrent being under the effective control of the Donald is less than pleasant to consider for this pair of lefty peacenicks.
