This is Moneyball: The road to Tokyo
This is MoneyBall, the podcast about what happens off the pitch with Georgie Frost and Lee Boyce. It’s one year to go until Tokyo 2020, and after the successes of London 2012 and the Rio Olympics four years later - where Team GB finished 2nd in the medals table - will Japan prove an equally happy hunting ground for our athletes, especially the boxers? With Olympic funding up almost 50% since 2012, British boxing is going through something of a purple patch right now. But there's something rotten going on at the moment that could threaten all that… Is the future of boxing at the Olympics on the ropes?

Modern Mindset: Making Your Money Work for You

Modern Mindset

Modern Mindset: Making Your Money Work for You
Adam Cox talks to international speaker and passive income coach, Douglas Vermeeren. Douglas explains why most of the population rely on only a single source of income – often through conventional employment – and explains that what was taught in schools as being a source of security is actually a very risky strategy. He discusses why having multiple streams of income (some of which are passive) enables us to have more security and freedom simultaneously, and offers a few tips about how to make the transition from employee status into the world of having passive incomes.

The Week That Was and The Week Ahead

The Business of Film: Hobbs & Shaw
James Cameron-Wilson examines the UK box office, still dominated by Disney, even though they lose the #1 spot to Universal's Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs and Shaw. The only other new entry in the top 10 is Angry Birds 2, towards which James is not kind. He is far more supportive of his DVD/Blu-Ray of the week, The White Crow, about Rudolf Nureyev and directed by Ralph Fiennes, who also appears.
