Show 217 - Humza Yousaf


One of the leading lights of the SNP and one of the most talented politicians in Scotland gives a funny and candid account of his time in government and politics so far. The Justice Secretary talks openly about the political challenges facing him and his party as well as the personal challenges he's faced in his life. (Including how he manages to campaign in an election taking place during Covid and Ramadan). Humza also reflects on the debates around the Hate Crime Bill and the Gender Recognition Act and the lessons learned from how both have been conducted and perceived. In short, this episode has everything: political analysis, personal reflections and funny stories.
