Track Record: Ken Allen
Ken Allen started in accountancy before joining DHL three decades ago. For ten years from 2009 he was CEO of DHL Express, responsible for turning around the company from a loss-making mega brand (losing -$3bn globally in 2008) into a world-class performer (profits of $2bn in 2018). He recently handed over the leadership reigns, and is now CEO of DHL’s eCommerce Solutions division. He’s a “back-to-the-floor” kind of guy, often spending time with his organisation’s driving workforce (more often wearing company uniform than a suit!) and has a habit of breaking into song at functions and meetings – earning himself the nickname ‘the Singing CEO’.

The Top Ten: The Western
Vicky Sayers is joined by film critic and broadcaster, James Cameron-Wilson, to discuss some of the most influential films from the Western genre. Incredibly popular during the silent film era, the Western was revived in 1939 with John Ford’s Stagecoach, and reached its peak in the 1950s. But are its best days really behind it?

This is Moneyball: Sports stars and social media - A financial goldmine or recipe for disaster?
Social media use among sports stars has seen some of them become more than just a player – they are icons with a global following of millions who post their life off the pitch, as well as on it. Is Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter and the like a good use of time for footballers and other sporting icons – or do they have the potential to damage the reputation of both player and club? That's what broadcaster Georgie Frost and assistant editor Lee Boyce discuss this week, alongside expert Ehsen Shah. He is managing director of B-Engaged Ltd and runs the social media accounts of more than 20 footballers, including Arsenal star Héctor Bellerín - who has 3million Instagram followers and 1.7million Twitter followers. He discusses what makes good social media use, developing four pillars needed to make a difference and why it isn't about the money. We also talk about the abuse players may receive, how much a post can be worth to a brand and the future of technology use with sportspeople.

This is Moneyball: The six juiciest football finance stories of summer 2019
The football season is back with bang but what happened off the pitch in the summer when it comes to money created major talking points. Assistant editor Lee Boyce and broadcaster Georgie Frost pick six of the financial hot topics when it comes to football from the last few months to give their thoughts and opinions. This includes £1.4billion being spent in the summer transfer window, with half of Premier League clubs breaking their individual player transfer record – so who got the best deal? We've got confirmation of Wayne Rooney heading back to England, but why have the financials caused controversy? Bolton Wanderers and Bury are on the brink. What has happened, will they be saved and is Financial Fair Play working? Elsewhere, the Forbes rich list of sports clubs makes for interesting reading, the Chinese cash influence grows and women's football received a huge surge of interest meaning more money.

This is Moneyball: European Hockey Championships
Welcome to This is MoneyBall, the podcast about what happens off the pitch. As it’s the European Championships this week, Georgie Frost and Lee Boyce go back to school – and talk about hockey. On last week's episode, the pair explored one year to the Tokyo Olympics from the boxing perspective. The view from Team GB hockey, however, is somewhat different: saved from a position of bankruptcy to being recognised as one of the best-run governing bodies in British sport. Could other sports take a lesson from hockey? Plus, what is it like to be a pro in a marginal sport, not awash with cash? And how hard is it to switch countries that you represent?
