Poles apart - World agrees on Climate Change while Europe struggles on
Hats off to the Poles for holding the ring in key international negotiations, but where one has succeeded (Michal Kurtyka: Climate Change), the other has failed as yet (Donald Tusk: Brexit).
As we approach Christmas, many will be looking forward to a week or two’s relaxation and the opportunity to leave the world’s woes behind: particularly, no doubt, Theresa May, after these battering few weeks.
Christmas broadcasting on Share Radio is designed to foster an atmosphere of goodwill and relaxation and, if you want to switch away from the spoken word, try Share Music with its flow of Christmas carols and instrumental folk. Also we’re delighted to introduce a new feature this week: access to our new Video library, prepared by Asset TV for your enjoyment.
Meanwhile READ ON .. as our commentary this week takes a world perspective, looking at how not just climate change but also business and technology have transcended borders. And in this respect we’re taking a special look at the huge advances made over the past few years by India.

Please note that you're asked to sign in (as a one-off event) when listening to Share Radio, either as our live stream or podcasts, or for listening to Share Music via our website and/or apps. It’s part of our transformation, to make our service more relevant and personal for listeners: and it’s made possible by being 100% online.
After you first enter your email address and have activated it, you shouldn't have to enter it again - as your computer or mobile device will remember that you've signed up. It’s not unlike BBC i-Player which is also asking listeners to say who they are.
However we are also entering everyone who signs up and activates into our fortnightly prize draw for an internet radio, pre-set for Share Radio and Share Music: so there’ll be a chance to experience one of our Ocean Digital WR-220s which respond to a simple on-off button.
Share Radio online is accompanied by Share Music, its sister online station: great instrumental background music for reading, drafting or entertaining.
Here's your 100% internet Ocean Digital WR-220 radio, pre-set with both Share Radio and Share Music channels!
With access to over 15,000 more radio stations across the world.
Very competitively priced at -
£57.95 + £5 post/packing (UK delivery)
When you just need some relaxing background music for reading, writing or entertaining, Share Music is there with an almost unbroken flow of instrumental folk music. It's a great complement to Share Radio, and if you buy an internet radio from us you'll find both Share Radio and Share Music preset and all ready to go.
Share Music has a great mobile app, Share Music UK, which displays information on tracks played.
In a new partnership with publishers Harriman House, Share Radio has produced its first audiobook 'Superinvestors', written by Matthew Partridge and read by some of Share Radio's best known presenters: Simon Rose, Fenella Fudge, Glen Thompsett, Ed Bowsher and accomplished actor David Ricardo Pearce, whose ancestor is featured in the book.
Welcome to Gavin Oldham's full presentation describing his vision for egalitarian capitalism.
The main set of proposals are as follows:
Egalitarian Capitalism is an alternative to socialism which, while fostering and encouraging enterprise for all, acts to involve and empower people right across society and especially the young.
