Quiet News Day Podcast 77

27 Apr

Hello and welcome to this week’s Quiet News Day podcast!

A bit of a love in this week as Scott Douglas and Peter Laing take us down the aisle and discuss the latest Royal Wedding faux pas, how social media has become a platform for sectarianism in football and how our very own Peter found himself in the middle of a plagiarism row.

As usual links to the topics discussed can be found in the show notes below.
