Listen to the latest episode
If you want to understand Scottish politics a little better, listen to The Stooshie podcast every week.
Every Friday, political journalists from across the DC Thomson Media folio of news brands get together to discuss what’s been happening across Scottish politics over the last seven days and help you understand the implications of what’s happening at the Scottish parliament in Holyrood, Westminster, and in the communities we serve – all so that you can be better briefed.
The Stooshie – The Courier’s Political podcast
We’re proud to have dedicated reporters across The Courier, The Press & Journal, Evening Telegraph, Evening Express and The Sunday Post, embedded right in our communities and in the heart of Westminster, who are immersed in UK politics and what every government decision means for us all.
Whether that’s our ground-breaking data journalism that informs the stories we tell, our polling activity with major partner organisations to help us view how the political winds are blowing and what’s important to you, our access to politicians, or our good old-fashioned dogged journalism that keeps asking the questions that matter.
Our political coverage is there to help the people of Scotland and beyond make sense of the issues that really matter.
How we cover Scottish Politics
The Stooshie is a Scottish politics podcast where we dig into political stories in different ways, a place where we can take time to pick up a political topic, turn it this way and that, and try to understand it better.
Perhaps you’ll get to know our journalists a little better too, and we’ll earn more of your trust when you see how thoughtfully and carefully we approach stories.
So whether you’re looking for an election podcast as we approach polling days, Scottish independence updates, regular Scottish politics news, UK government changes, or just one of the best political podcasts in the country, we’d love you to give The Stooshie a listen.
(Oh, and in case you don’t know, a ‘stooshie’ is a ‘to-do’, a ‘brouhaha’, a ‘kerfuffle’ – a ‘stramash’!)
