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.
