Ben Haines is alongside former Scotland international Gary Caldwell and EA Sports presenter Nubaid Haroon to dissect Saturday's madness including a stoppage time goal from Marcus Rashford to take Manchester United up to fourth in the table.

In this episode of Bourbon With Friends. Paul is on location in Aberfeldy, Scotland at the Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery. I am joined by Craig Reed. Advocacy Host & Coordinator of the Distillery. First planned in 1896 by the sons of John Dewar, Dewar's Aberfeldy Distillery is the onlyScotch whisky distillery built by the Dewar family. Dewar's was already a highly successful brand of blended whisky, renowned for its quality, and the company needed more single malt whisky to use in its blend.The Dewar family's pursuit of whisky perfection continues to this day, and they still produce whisky in a way that they would recognise instantly. In common with most Scotch whisky distilleries, malted Scottish barley to make the whisky is brought to site, with the old Malting House now home to our beautiful Whisky Lounge and Cafe. Due to vastly increased demand, we now mature our spirit elsewhere in Scotland, meaning our former filling station and warehouse have escaped modernisation and serve as a highly atmospheric tour area and home to our Cask Tasting.This is the ideal backdrop to explain how Dewar's premium blends are ‘double-aged', with a secondary resting in oak barrels once the blend is created. The costly process gives an extra smoothness to the final whisky.The creation of the distinctive Aberfeldy spirit all takes place onsite, with our extra long fermentation in larch washbacks, and distillation in our tall pot stills overlooking the rolling Perthshire hills. These processes create the honeyed-richness for which Aberfeldy whisky is renowned. Now popular in its own right as a single malt, Aberfeldy still makes up the heart of the Dewar's blend, contributing its heather honey flavour to America's best selling Scotch whisky.You can learn more about the distillery here. www.dewars.comFollow on Instagram. @dewarsaberfeldyFollow Craig on Instagram @pacmancraig

This is the fifth and final episode of John Snyder and Steve Crampton discussing revival. Last week they introduced a little book called The Causes of the Lord's Wrath against Scotland Manifested in His Sad, Late Dispensations. In that book, Presbyterian pastors across Scotland joined together to discuss why God's wrath was being poured out on Scotland. They didn't point to the rebellious culture, but to themselves and their own sins. To aid in their repentance, they pointed out particular sins they were guilty of and then joined together in congregational repentance. In this episode, John and Steve pick some of the confessions they find most applicable to our day and time.

The Raise the Roof project in Perth in Scotland, is gathering the lesser-known histories of a number of influential and fearless women to feature in the new Perth City Hall Museum when it opens in early 2024. A list of over 50 women who have lived in Perth over the centuries – from a witch to a pioneering photographer and the first female MP has been drawn up. But it is down to a number of different community groups to decide which women will be celebrated. They will work with an artist to help tell their stories and a wire statue of each of those women will be displayed around the city. Chloe Tilley is joined by Anna Day the Cultural Public Programme Manager at Perth & Kinross Council and the artist Vanessa Lawrence. The Children's Commissioner for England, Dame Rachel de Souza, has warned that thousands of children have "fallen off the radar" of schools. She is launching an inquiry to find young people who are not attending school in the wake of lockdown. In 1969 Muriel McKay was kidnapped after being mistaken for Rupert Murdoch's wife. The story dominated front pages for weeks, and hundreds of police worked the case. After 40 days Arthur and Nizamodeen Hosein were arrested, and later jailed, but Muriel was never found. The brothers never confessed to their crimes, or revealed the whereabouts of Mrs McKay's body. Until now. Dianne McKay is Muriel's daughter and joins Chloe. With inflation at a 10 year high, energy bills on the increase, and average pay rises failing to keep up with the rise of the cost of living, and not forgetting an increase in national insurance coming this way, millions of people will find themselves worse off in 2022. The number of households spending at least 10 per cent of their family budgets on energy bills – is set to treble overnight to 6.3 million households when the new energy price cap comes into effect on April, that's according to research by the Resolution Foundation, who've dubbed 2022 the year of the squeeze. And new analysis by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation says that low income families could spend on average 18 percent of their income after housing costs on energy bills. How would you respond to starting a relationship and being told by your new partner he was looking for a committed partnership—just one that did not include exclusivity? Author and journalist, Rachel Krantz had to address just this and embrace it with her ex partner Adam. She was nervous, yet intrigued and so Rachel decided to give it a go. Seeing whether she could cope with, and enjoy, both of them dating other people. In her debut memoir, ‘Open, An Uncensored Memoir of Love, Liberation & Non-Monogamy' Rachel candidly shares with the reader her experiences of exploring Brooklyn sex parties and being part of the swinger community.

In tonight's Pod Show exclusive, Stephen vents to Jon about covid anxieties and contagious pumas. Meanwhile… Stephen helps the ubiquitous earworm “Baby Shark” song celebrate a milestone, and helps our head writer Opus Moreschi answer a tricky question from his father. Then, “Succession” star and author of the new memoir, “Putting the Rabbit in the Hat,” Brian Cox joins Stephen for a two-part interview that kicks off with a look back at his parents, his childhood in Scotland, and the experiences that cemented his desire to become an entertainer. Next, our good friend Samantha Bee stops by to celebrate the 200th episode of her namesake TBS show, “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” and explain to Stephen what she means when she says this season will be “nut-nut.” Learn more about your ad choices.

Get ready for a brain buster. Or at least prepare to witness my brain being busted. Celtic mythology is... tricky to understand. And no one understands perfectly because the source material is scarce.  A LOT has been written about Celtic mythology but so much of it is conjecture presented as fact. The ancient Celts themselves didn't write anything down. Their enemies did. As did the Catholic monks who came to island to conquer a people the Roman army could not. Today we familiarize ourselves with Ireland - land most associated with the Celts and find out why Ireland is most strongly associated with Celtic culture when Celtic tribes lived as far away as Asia Minor. Who were these people? What did they believe? Why don't we know more about them? And what the Hell is a Selkie, Spriggan, or a  Dullahan?  So much mystery and madness explored today. The Bad Magic Charity of the month is Love Thy Neighbor! We'll  be giving $15,500 to this Denver-area based 501(3c) nonprofit dedicated to working with local businesses to hand out free food to the homeless.

The Department of Justice secured a guilty plea from NatWest Markets, the newly-named Royal Bank of Scotland, for trade manipulation, referred to as “spoofing,” in U.S. Treasury markets. The NatWest resolution reflected new changes in DOJ's white collar enforcement policies, including acknowledgement and consideration of NatWest's prior misconduct (criminal and civil) and appointment of an independent compliance monitor. NatWest was not offered a deferred or non-prosecution agreement; instead it was required to plead guilty to a criminal charge of securities fraud and another charge of wire fraud.Under the plea agreement, NatWest agreed that during the period of 2008 to 2014, traders in its Stamford and London offices spoofed the market for Treasury futures contracts. In addition, two traders at NatWest's Singapore branch spoofed the secondary cash market for Treasury securities in 2018. The spoofing scheme violated a 2017 non-prosecution agreement between the United States and NatWest's broker-dealer subsidiary, and occurred while NatWest was on probation for a separate conviction for manipulation of the foreign currency exchange market.DOJ cited NatWest's status as a repeat offenders as justification for requiring a criminal guilty plea to two counts. Under the plea agreement, NatWest Markets will pay $35 million in restitution, forfeiture and a criminal fine, serve three years' probation and take on an independent compliance monitor.In this Episode, Michael Volkov reviews the NatWest prosecution and settlement agreement.

A century ago, Masataka Taketsuru was using the lessons he learned during his time in Scotland to build Japan's emerging whisky industry armed with a notebook full of information. While that notebook remains in Nikka Whisky's archives, it's now been translated into English for the first time. Ruth Anne Herd and Professor Alan Wolstenholme teamed up for the translation, and there's a family connection behind the project. Wolstenholme's grandfather was the manager at Hazelburn Distillery in Campbeltown when Taketsuru was doing his "internship" there, and that's one of the stories Alan Wolstenholme shares with us in this week's WhiskyCast In-Depth.

Around 6000 BC, a revolution took place on Orkney and the Western Isles of Scotland. An outstanding collection of stone circles, standing stones, round towers, and passage mounds appeared seemingly out of nowhere. And yet many such monuments were not indigenous to Britain, but to regions of the Caspian Sea and the Mediterranean. Their creators were equally mysterious. Traditions tell of the Papae and Peti, "strangers from afar" who were physically different, dressed in white tunics, and lived aside from the regular population. They were regarded as master astronomers with an uncanny ability to work with enormous stones. But where did these relatively advanced ancient architects come from? In his seventh book, Scotland's Hidden Sacred Past, best-selling author Freddy Silva examines the Neolithic culture, Gaelic language, and sacred traditions of the Scottish Isles and finds a trail of evidence leading to Sardinia and the Armenian Highlands. His research locates the origin of this misplaced civilization and what prompted its people to choose the furthest reaches of Europe to recreate the masterworks of their original homeland, a plan that included the establishing of Ireland's sacred and megalithic culture. Among the many topics covered:The true dating of Orkney's sites and their relationship to the Giza pyramidsArmenian and Egyptian linguistic roots of sites and places in Orkney and the HebridesArchaeo-astronomical connections with OrionThe origin of the Papae, Peti, and Tuatha de DanaanArmenian and Scythian roots of Ireland's prehistorySardinian megalithic history and the origin of Scottish duns and brochsThe connection between Armenia and CallanishHidden geometric blueprints linking ancient sites in Orkney, Kilmartin, and IrelandAuthor website: invisibletemple.com

Everyone has a story about what they were doing when the world shut down in 2020. Our story? Well, we finally get to tell you. We had just finished leg 3 of The Amazing Race in Glasgow, Scotland. (Spoiler Alert: We WON the leg, by the way!) In this week's recap, we talk about what it was like on this leg of the Race and what was going through our minds when we learned that we'd be going home. Tell us your questions and we will try to answer them in these recaps next week! Call 323-364-3929 or e-mail us at holdermesspodcast@gmail.com.We wrote a book!

: Penn, Kim, Lola, and Penn Charles Holderness create original music, parodies, and Vlogs for YouTube and Facebook to poke fun of themselves and celebrate the absurdity in circumstances most families face in their day to day life. They published "Christmas Jammies" in December 2013 and life hasn't been the same. Since then, their popular parodies, "All About That Baste", "Baby Got Class," and original music "Snow Day" have received national news coverage. Penn, the Dad, took a chance and left his job as a news anchor to join his wife Kim, the Mom, at their video production and digital marketing company, Greenroom Communications, LLC. Lola and Penn Charles are always happy, respectful and eat all of their vegetables (that last sentence is a lie).

Welcome to episode 257 where we deep dive into all of our hyper-fixations! Most importantly, for Xandy's last episode we have not one, but two lighthouse stories for you. First Em tells the spooky tales of haunted Point Lookout Lighthouse in Scotland, Maryland. Then Xandy takes us across the pond to the country of Scotland for a murder case in Little Ross Island Lighthouse. And don't worry, the Funcles will reunite at some point in the future, so stay tuned... and that's why we drink!
