    Previously leader of the Liberal Democrats and currently the Liberal Democrat MP for Westmorland and Lonsdale, Tim Farron is host of the ‘A Mucky Business’ podcast, which delves into politics through the eyes of Christians. He recently interviewed Kate Forbes, MSP for Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch, who narrowly missed out on her SNP leadership bid to Hamza Yusuf earlier this year. Having experienced a similar backlash, Tim recognises her defeat as an attack on her Christian faith, which dominated the headlines during the leadership campaign. She shares how she dealt with that storm and comments on whether there is now an impassable ceiling for Christians in politics
