Gadgets & Gizmos: QR codes IN food, more efficient wind and wave energy & fake Amazon reviews
Share Radio's technology editor talks to Simon Rose about the ability to 3D print QR codes inside food, but wonders why anyone would want to. He is dubious about the data gathered by Meta's new VR headset but loves an app that separates various elements in music. He is impressed by a motionless rooftop wind generator and a sea platform producing energy from waves. There's even a proof-of-concept ability to transmit solar power wirelessly, using a system developed by Nikola Tesla over 100 years ago.

The Bigger Picture: The real costs of cheap money & the importance of getting WW2 Russian history right
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University talks to Simon Rose about the real human and economic cost of "cheap money" and ignoring the basics of economics, particularly among the groupthinking MPC. As we find ourselves with the butcher's bill for 14 years of zero interest rates, he doubts if there is anybody who can turn things around without enormous upheaval. The soggy, Keynesian, statist, high-tax, no-growth blancmange is not, he maintains, sustainable for our children and grandchildren. He also explains why it is so important when it comes to Russia's war on Ukraine that the Soviet Union's role in starting the Second World War be properly acknowledged.

The Business of Film: Emily, Flux Gourmet & Anais In Love

The Business of Film: Emily, Flux Gourmet & Anais In Love
James Cameron-Wilson laments a continuing weak UK box office. He welcomes a potential star in Emma Mackey from Sex Education in the film Emily (as in Bronte) but it only made #10 in the chart. He found Flux Gourmet from Peter Strickland engaging but baffling but that film barely troubled the scorers at #91 in the chart. James was happier watching Anais in Love starring Anais Demoustier on DVD, though he found the film all over the place. He hopes that Dwayne Johnson's new film can provide more cheer next week.

Thought for the Week

Thought for the Week: Health and the Economy
Our new Chancellor of the Exchequer, formerly the longest-ever serving British Health Secretary, is uniquely well-placed to understand the burden that universal health care provision places on the public finances, and why we must crack this 70-year addiction. In this episode, we analyse how heavily this burden is impacted by care for older people, many of whom are well-placed to be able to cover the costs which they incur. Now is the time to take a fresh look at the 41% of central government spending committed to the health service — we propose that in future there should be an intelligent use of mandatory private medical insurance for those who can afford it, with the NHS drawing down the cost of their treatment from their insurer, as it’s incurred.

This Is Money: What you need to know about gilts and why markets freaked out so much it toppled the Chancellor
When gilts hit the headlines it’s a clear sign that trouble has not only been brewing but has been unleashed. Government bond yields only tend to break through into the mainstream when things aren’t going well and they have been firmly in the spotlight since Kwasi Kwarteng’s ill-fated mini-budget. But what is a gilt, why does its yield matter, what’s that got to do with prices and why do we worry about such things? Georgie Frost, Lee Boyce and Simon Lambert, take a step back from the maelstrom to explain gilts, why investors worry about government bonds, what’s causing ructions in the pensions industry and what this all means for normal people. Chancellor Kwarteng has now departed – in fact, news of his imminent exit from the job while the team were recording the podcast, triggering a breaking news style interruption – but will Chancellor Jeremy Hunt fare any better (and last longer)? The team discuss why the mortgage market is key to the answer to that and also look at what first-time buyers should do in this scenario. There are some for whom the current rapid rate rises aren’t bad news though and that is savers. We now have a top savings rate above 5% for the first time in many years, but is it worth taking? It requires locking in for five years, but that’s the sort of return knocking on what could reasonably be expected from the stock market, where you also have to take the risk of losing money. And finally, investors are hunkering down at the moment, but when share prices fall the stock market is on sale – and if you look at some investment trusts there is a double sale going on, as discounts have widened to 13% on average. Should you be greedy when others are fearful, as Warren Buffett is often quoted as saying, or exercise some caution rather than having your head turned by knockdown prices?

The Hypnotist: Become an Exceptional Leader
Does leadership require skills and competency which have to be learnt before taking responsibility — or is it more a matter of courage? Certainly there needs to be a degree of confidence that one is resourceful enough to make it work: but there's also a need to accept that it's a learning process in itself. You can't learn to swim without getting in the water! So this episode looks at the principles and resources needed for good leadership, about thinking of others first, about integrity. (You won't hear reference to her in the podcast but, when it comes to jumping in the deep end, our current prime minister is certainly learning the hard way)
