Gadgets & Gizmos:  DogTV, growing tomatoes on Mars & lab-grown fish
Share Radio's technology editor Steve Caplin looks at IT problems at Walker's crisps and how supermarkets are trying to hide empty shelves from shoppers. Heinz have apparently worked out how to produce tomatoes on Mars, Twitter is allowing people to edit tweets (at a price) and Curry's has teamed up with Uber for quick home deliveries. If you've a bored dog, then DogTV is here, aimed at the canine viewer, while lab-grown fish could soon be on the menu. And as COP26 draws to a close, there's news of how to power planes with ammonia, how to clean up the oceans in a more sustainable way and how to remove soot particles from wood fires.

This Is Money: Should the Bank of England have raised interest rates? Plus Steve Webb on pension delays
Did the Bank of England bottle raising interest rates or should a rate rise have never been on the cards in the first place? Inflation is mounting but hiking the base rate will do little to tame soaring energy prices, an oil price spike or the supply crunch. On the other hand, the emergency 0.1 per cent base rate arrived at the start of the coronavirus crisis and the economy looks far better now than was expected then. So where should rates be? And did the Bank of England make the wrong decision for the right reason? On this week’s podcast, Georgie Frost, Tanya Jefferies and Simon Lambert dissect the Steady Eddie move that got the Bank of England labelled an ‘unreliable boyfriend’ again. Plus, our pension agony uncle Sir Steve Webb joins the podcast to discuss state pension delays and what has happened since he and Tanya Jefferies exposed the situation. And finally, it’s time for some council tax rants… just why is the tax so seemingly crazy and in terms of fixing it, should we be careful what we wish for?

The Hypnotist: Haunted House.
The fear of ghosts and the supernatural often starts at childhood, but can endure into adulthood. Vivid imagination of mailicious or sinister motives can alter people's whole outlook on life, and unsettle everyday ations and behaviours. Adam Cox addresses such anxiety by building resilience and confidence: so that, even in a haunted house, you would not find it scary and unsettling. A good episode for those with a fear of ghosts - or who just have difficulty sleeping.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: What does the MPC's "studious inactivity" imply?

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: What does the MPC's "studious inactivity" imply?
Russ Mould, Investment Director of A J Bell, looks at the Bank of England's Monetary Policy Committee's decision to take no action on interest rates. He wonders if their "studious inactivity" is likely to prove wise and that all the evidence of mounting inflationary pressure will indeed be transient. Will we get the Goldilocks economy or has the horse already bolted through the open stable door? There must be a tipping point with interest rates in regard to equities, he says, but where will it be?

The Bigger Picture: Culture Wars move into science arena, NHS and private hospitals & Frank Field
With Cop26 underway, Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University discusses the way that the culture wars are moving into the realm of science. He also contrasts how the UK public's behaviour has changed in a generation with the polarised politics of the USA. He examines why the NHS has failed to use private hospitals to clear its backlog despite a £10 billion deal. And he pays tribute to Lord Frank Field, looking at his ideas – way ahead of their time – on the provision of unemployment benefit.
