The Brian Taylor Podcast is to continue with a brand new live-show format - with the first episode going live today.

The podcast, which was launched in the lead-up to this year’s Holyrood election, has been entertaining listeners for the last few weeks, with a history of guests including Humza Yousaf, Douglas Ross, Ross Greer, Alex Cole-Hamilton, and Kezia Dugdale.

And now, we’re delighted to bring the podcasts straight to your favourite social media apps with our brand new weekly live shows - starting today.

Hosted by the BBC’s much-loved former political editor Brian Taylor, the podcast will be streamed live on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube each Thursday afternoon, before being made available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts.

This week's episode will go live just after 3pm across our social media channels.

And listeners to the podcast have access to an exclusive subscription discount code, entitling them to 20% off our incredible annual rate, heard only through the live stream and recorded episodes.
