Paul Hughes and John McDermott are two Scottish friends who agree on many things, but part ways on one very important question: namely whether their beloved homeland should be an independent country.  

Paul, a lawyer, is in favour. John, a journalist, is opposed.

In north of the border they attempt to have the type of conversation that has been all too missing in the recent debate over Scotland's future: one that is civil, fact-based and grounded in respect for the other's opinions.

Each episode features a guest with something unique to say about Scotland's past, present or future.

North of the border is a podcast for anyone with even a passing interest in Scotland.
