This is Moneyball: England football legend Shaun Wright Phillips on money in the game, US soccer and how to tackle racism
It is 2019 – and yet we still haven't managed to kick racism out of football. We had the England vs Montenegro incident last month, distasteful incidents in Italy - and last weekend, closer to home, in the Championship. England international Danny Rose says he can't wait to 'get out' of the game altogether – what can be done? Assistant editor Lee Boyce and broadcaster Georgie Frost are joined in the studio this week by former Chelsea, Manchester City and England winger Shaun Wright Phillips for his views. Are players given enough support by clubs, do clubs and fans need to do more to finally stamp it out and can the Premier League really tackle the matter in house by throwing cash at the problem? Shaun also gives his views on football agents after it was revealed £211m was spent on agent fees between February 2017 and January 2018, while expert Darren Bailey explains their role. He also lifts the lid on what life was like at two clubs who saw investment pour in when he played for them – Chelsea and Manchester City. Shaun also reveals whether he'd like to get into football management, why players are told to watch what they say and how he lived in Bradley's basement in the Big Apple… for five months.

He looks at an app which helps to report possible car wash slaves which demonstrates the creeping digital privatisation of law enforcement. Lastly he examines the role of the "deep state" in the Brexit process.

The Business of Film: Shazam!
James Cameron-Wilson runs his eye down the UK box office chart, with age-shift superhero movie Shazam! pushing Dumbo from the front spot, a new Pet Semetary at #3 and French-directed western The Sisters Brothers clocking in at #9. Out for home release is Mary Poppins Returns, which will no doubt fly off the shelves and 1952 Finnish classic The White Reindeer, which might have a little more trouble getting into the air.

This is Money: Is the 8% return on your 'savings' really just a complex fraud?

This is Money: Is the 8% return on your 'savings' really just a complex fraud?
As we fast approach one fifth of the way through the 21st century, the world of finance is modernising in ways that would have been unimaginable a few years ago. And not always in a good way. The language of ‘savings’ has evolved to the point of dishonesty and even fraud. On this week’s podcast editor Simon Lambert and reporter George Nixon join host Georgie Frost to look at fancy new Innovative Finance Isas, at savings products that claim to offer 8% returns and to be protected by the official savings watchdog but are in fact risky investments – and the fraud investigation at London Capital and Finance, where thousands of ‘savers’ lost millions of pounds. Simon guides listeners through the dark side of mini bonds and the complex web of companies that savers’ money was poured into at LC and F before it collapsed owing £236m. The City watchdog supposedly overseeing the company is also now being investigated . On a cheerier note, George explains how teenagers are able to invest on the stock market and how easy it can be to get started, plus a couple of new free share dealing services, an old-fashioned holiday trap and whether insurance companies would pay out if your flash car crash is on video and on social media.

Mini Mindset: Dental fears

Mini Mindset: Dental fears
New research reveals that nearly a third of Brits say that they fear the dentist’s chair and 79% say they are put off receiving dental advice as a result – which could explain why nearly 100,000 fewer people visited the dentist last year. Fear is just one of the reasons why we are avoiding the chair, with time and cost also stopping 1 in 7 of us from taking a visit. So, Are we risking our oral health by not taking more regular visits to the dentist? Earlier I spoke to dentist Cathal Hayes and the CEO of Centre for Dentistry who carried out the research Lisa Riley.
