Is the eight hour workday outdated and irrelevant today?
Is the eight hour workday outdated and irrelevant today? Stephan Aarstol is CEO of Tower Paddle Boards, named the fastest growing company in San Diego and author of a book called The Five-Hour Workday. Not only has he written the book on five hour workdays- but in 2015 he put his employees on a 8am to 1pm workday for three months and says that the switch had an enormous, positive, and lasting impact on all of them.

This is Money: Spreading the Jam
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, presented in partnership with NS&I. This week of course the top financial story was Philip Hammond’s first, and indeed last, Autumn Statement. Just what state are the country’s post-Brexit finances in, and crucially what would the Chancellor offer to help his much referenced ‘Jams’? In the end those ‘just about managing’ certainly received a few headline policies but with predictions pointing towards low growth, high borrowing and high inflation many argue Jam spending has been spread too thin. There were also some losers with those enjoying salary sacrifice perks and letting agents coming into the crosshairs, as well as in fact the Autumn Statement itself which will now be scrapped. So what will all this mean for the pound in your pocket? Georgie Frost joins editor Simon Lambert and reporter Becky Rutt to answer just that. Also on the agenda this week they discuss Black Friday and for a slightly different purchase the opportunity to buy a road legal Formula 1 car. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.

 Share Radio's senior analyst Ed Bowsher on The News Review 25/11/16
Georgie Frost is joined in the studio by Share Radio's senior analyst Ed Bowsher. On the agenda today, they discuss the big story - today is Black Friday. Estimates suggest we could spend as much as 2-billion pounds in today's sales - which would make it the biggest shopping day of the year. But are the deals as good as they seem? Elsewhere, we're raking up debt at the fastest rate since 2008. Plus, despite many campaigns, two-thirds of households are yet to change energy providers, while three-quarters of homeowners lose thousands of pounds every year by failing to switch their mortgage. All these stories and more on The News Review.

Safeway and Austin Reed to return to the high street – Richard Perks explained the comeback
Black Friday is on and bargain hunting shoppers may spend an estimated £2 billion trying to beat expected new year price rises. And according to the online retailing association IMRG, well over half the spend will be done online. So it might seem surprising to find that two old pre-internet age stores are being revived on the High Street. Safeway and Austin Reed are both staging a comeback, so Matt Cox has been hearing from Mintel’s Retail Analyst, Richard Perks, about the return of these old names.

European Parliament President Martin Schulz will not seek a third term
The European Parliament's President, Martin Schulz, is to run for election in the German parliament next year, instead of seeking a third term leading MEPs. And his replacement could matter for Britain. Politico Europe's Ryan Heath said it could well be the former Belgian prime minister, who's currently due to lead the EU in the Brexit negotiations. Ryan spoke to Share Radio’s Nigel Cassidy from Brussels.
