Mini Mindset: The Apathy for EPC’s
Adam talks to Lauren Vasquez, an engineer for British Gas about research that suggests that first time buyers don’t investigate the energy efficiency of their first home purchase. This is surprising since many first time buyers are financially stretched with the cost of the deposit and the monthly mortgage and initial home buying costs. The unknown energy costs of the property could cause additional stress on an already stressful financial decision. Lauren offers some tips on how to make sense of an Energy Performance Certificate and how to make homes more energy efficient.

This is Moneyball: With the WWE money circus rolling into Britain next month, is sports tourism becoming more popular?
Next month, the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) circus comes to Britain, with live shows in Belfast, Newcastle, Liverpool, London, Birmingham, Sheffield and Cardiff. For many, they will remember the days of Hulk Hogan, Bret the Hitman Hart and the British Bulldog. So, is wrestling just as popular in 2019 as it was in the 1980s and 90s. This week, Georgie Frost focuses on the billion dollar sport of wrestling with chief executive of the Wrestling Travel company Lee McAteer. He recently visited New Jersey, in the US, for Wrestlemania 35 - and returns to give us expert insight, talk about the money-side of the sport, and why more people are taking an interest in sports tourism.

Modern Mindset: The Gift of Health
Adam talks to Philly Fiels, founder of Hope In Health: a specialist company that produces a frankincense tonic water called Frankly Irresistible. They explore why, for most people, frankincense is associated with the gift that the 3 wise men gave to Jesus in the nativity, and why we have heard so little else about this ancient plant. Philly explains that although frankincense can be used as a fragrance, the higher grades can be used to create a tonic water with incredible health properties. They discuss the science behind this plant and explore whether the placebo effect could be responsible for some of these – almost miraculous – health observations.
