Gadgets & Gizmos: When is an astronaut not an astronaut, Olympic Tinder dates & the Mini Moke is back
Steve Caplin feels (slightly) sorry for Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson, told just after their flights that they don't qualify to be astronauts. He reflects on those changing their Tinder location to Tokyo in the hope of dating an Olympic athlete. He also discusses the e-motorbike that will follow you around, a way to get your exercise bike to tilt on imaginary hills, how to experience the Great Barrier Reef while staying at home, a Covid mask with a speaker, making fake reviews illegal, a physical stock ticker, the return of the Mini Moke and a way of arranging camping in people's gardens.

The Business Of Film

The Business of Film: Old, Escape Room: Tournament of Champions & Blood Red Sky
James Cameron-Wilson reports that UK box office is not only up 8.9% week on week but 1,832% year on year! Despite its potential for a great story, he was underwhelmed by M. Night Shayamalan's Old with Gael Garcia Bernal and Rufus Sewell, in at #4. Nor was he convinced by Escape Room: Tournament of Champions, #7 in the chart. He did, however, find himself on the edge of his seat in Blood Red Sky on Netflix , finding it nerve-shredding. He also reflects on the joy of finding laughter in a film that is 100 year old.

The Bigger Picture: Death of the Californian Dream, Labour's Month of the Long Knives & reflections on Afghanistan
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University discusses why the Californian Dream is dying and why that should matter to us all. He looks at Keir Starmer's purging of the far left, attempting to make Labour a more moderate party that could bring some of those who parted under Jeremy Corbyn back into the fold. And he gives his thoughts on Lord Robertson's powerful reflections on our intervention in Afghanistan.

The Financial Outlook for Persona Investors: Why the BofE might be right not to worry about inflation
Laith Khalaf of A J Bell looks at some of the reasons the Bank of England might be right not to concern itself unduly with inflation, with the effects of the oil price and rising rages set to work their way out of the system before long. However, with the call on inflation being so hard to make for certain, he suggests that investors should ensure their portfolios aren't unduly skewed towards a low-interest-rate environment, reckoning it important that they ensure they are balanced.

This Is Money: With new plans to tackle bogus ratings online; How much can you trust reviews?
The Government is planning a major crackdown on fake reviews. Under proposals, it will become illegal to pay someone to write, or host, bogus online ratings. How much weight should we put behind buying decisions when it comes to reviews and ratings, and what exactly are the plans to prevent this kind of consumer manipulation? Simon Lambert, Lee Boyce and Georgie Frost discuss this, along with the others measures the Government is planning, including on subscription traps and Christmas savings clubs, and how it'll be enforced. How much are you saving? You might think a lack of a rainy day pot is solely an issue for those on low incomes, but you'd be wrong. A quarter of Britain's wealthiest households do not have one - why is this the case? That comes as fixed-rate deals nudge higher, but Lee warns listeners not to get too excited. Are you paying for too much mobile phone data? And would you take part in a home swap in order to save on your summer holiday?

The Hypnotist: Relentless Determination.
Motivation is important to get things started but, in itself, it's not sufficient to carry them through to completion: what's needed for that is relentless determination. Have you experienced starting something - a project, a diet, visits to the gym - but not been able to see it through? This episode is all about building a 'whatever it takes mentality' to achieve those big goals or missions which are important to you.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: The prospect for UK banks.
Ahead of the banks' results, Russ Mould, Investment Director of A J Bell asks if the markets are saying something is not quite right in the sector. With all banks trading below book value, are they screamingly cheap or is it the case that the underlying valuations will prove to be highly inaccurate? Investors' attitudes may depend on whether they are optimistic for the economy as a whole or fear the worst.
