Sometimes it feels like Scotland gets into reverse gear. The recent decision by Muirfield Golf Club not to admit women seems retrograde. Lesley picks this topic up and develops a theme about gender imbalance across the new media, the BBC, and the ways it can be addressed. We also touch on local campaigns including the Cupar postie. Note to our listener, it is recorded outside and there is ambient noise.

This week the topics could not contrast more. Eurovision turned up all sorts of interesting observations...especially Australia's involvement for the second year running. But the fallout from this week's BBC Question Time question around the Scottish Government's policy of 'Named Person' was remarkable. We have opinions.
