For the 26th Scottish Independence Podcast I spoke with Jack Foster who is the writer and narrator of a few films I'm sure most of you have seen by now.

The first he made was Precious Few Heroes

"Whether you're for or against an independent Scotland, or maybe you're not entirely convinced either way, this film makes the positive case for Scottish independence in a light-hearted, self-effacing fashion.

Forget the historic grudges, the ancient battles and the unjustly romanticized idols, Scottish independence isn't about "us and them", it isn't about anti-Englishness, it isn't about ownership, it isn't even about the SNP!"

That was followed up with A Parting Hymn: Lies Deceit And The Death of The Labour Party

"'A Parting Hymn' is in some respects a tribute to the political party that was once a voice for the poor and the working classes, the embodiment of fairness and solidarity. On the other, it recognises the very real death of the Labour party, whilst unashamedly making the case for Socialism (however lonely a voice that might be in a post Thatcher/Blair era)."

More recently, the Top Ten Unionist Myths Debunked video caused a fair bit of fuss.

He's also recently put out a Let's Vote Yes video.

We talked about the inspiration behind his films and the reaction to them and we talked about why he supports Independence.

Hope you enjoy it...
