The latest episode of The Brian Taylor Podcast is now available on all major streaming platforms.

This morning's episode comes after our first live broadcast of the podcast yesterday, which saw Brian joined by Alistair Grant of The Herald's political team, as well as Roz Foyer, general secretary of the Scottish Trades Union Congress, SNP MP Drew Henry, and former Conservative adviser and director of Message Matters Andy Maciver.

In this 12th episode, Brian asks the question: will it ever end? But he’s not talking about Scotland’s trials and tribulations in international football, but the pandemic in Scotland.

The podcast saw Roz Foyer state that thousands of people died unnecessarily in the pandemic because of "bad decisions" by the UK and Scottish governments.

She said union representatives fought "tooth and nail" to get hold of personal protective equipment (PPE) for their members during the initial period of the crisis. 

And conversation also turned to hospitality and the fight for businesses as Scotland looks to remain in current levels of restrictions for longer than originally planned.

You can now get involved in The Brian Taylor Podcast by tuning in on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube each Thursday afternoon.

Brian and his guests will be taking questions live on air from the comments.
