  1. Thank you for another interesting program! Libertarianism hadn't really come into my thinking at any point so it was interesting to hear about this party &Tam's views. I agreed with some of what he said, didn't agree with other things… as we do with most parties and we decide from there. I guess it comes down to which party is CLOSEST to our way of thinking, with more agreements than not. I think it was the fact many of the examples Tam gave of ideas he liked/didn't like re America, that got Dr. Mark giving HIS take of American politics. And while I know the program is to let the guest do the talking, I could understand how Dr Mark would be keen to give his thoughts from the point of having grown up there. And thus, the program became more a discussion than a 'guest spot'… But I liked that! I think with ideas being thrown at him, Tam gave more information than perhaps he might have done. I really enjoyed the 'discussion' element tonight. Nice change. 😉

  2. Was the purpose of this zoom chat to hear the Doctor and his rather pedestrian world view or was it about hearing what the Scottish Libertarian view for Scotland? I would rather a less stuttering and waffling interviewer was doing this and maybe it would have good. Tam Laird is very polite, I would have told this Doctor to stfu.
