In May, Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said in no uncertain terms that universal basic income is an "idea whose time has come".

The SNP have come out in full force for this policy.

That's why this week we've invited Ronnie Cowan, SNP MP for Inverclyde and life-long proponent of the idea, to talk to us about what it'll take to make basic income a reality in the UK.

What alliances do we need to win it? How do we move the Conservative Party – and Labour – to engage?

You'll also hear from Mike Pugh joins us from Basic Income Conversation to share his experiences so far campaigning across the country for BI.
