What might independence mean for Scotland’s universities? Would you be happy lecturing at 9pm? And why have complaints to the higher education sector’s ombudsman fallen for the first time?

These are among the questions discussed in this week’s Times Higher Education issue review podcast. Chris Parr is joined by books editor Karen Shook, news editor Simon Baker, and reporters Jack Grove and David Matthews.
