Defence expert Phillips O'Brien will be in the hot seat to answer your independence referendum questions.

The director of the Scottish Centre for War Studies is the latest guest taking part in a series of webcasts looking at issues surrounding Scotland's future.

Dr O'Brien has spoken about defence in the event of a "yes" to independence with a particular focus on the future of Trident at Faslane.

He told the BBC last year that Trident could be a key bargaining tool if a new independent Scottish government entered into talks with the UK government.
