Play • 57 min

A Scottish Podcast About Scotland!

Part 2 of The Darien Scheme is bananas. Things go for bad to worse for our band of tartan clad adventuring countrymen.

This week we discuss the lack of preparation, Scotland starting a war with Spain and the many, many deaths that resulted from our attempt to start a colony in Panama. 

The TDP Clan continues to support the people of Ukraine and encourage our readers to donate to the below charities if you can spare it:
