How do dogs, man's longest and most loyal companion, improve our lives? He talks to Kellie Ceccarelli a veterinary nurse and Roxy Carr a 17 year old dog owner and author about the psychological and mental health benefits of owning a pet dog. Many people will wait till they own their own house or have a family before getting a dog but Roxy persuaded her parents to allow her to own a dog at the age of 11. She took all the responsibility of walks, training and care and found many health and wellbeing advantages. She features her story with Poppy, a cockapoo in a new book called ‘A Pawfect Pair’.with Kelly and Roxy to find out what a difference dogs can really make to our lives.

IEA: The Foundational Economy
In this episode of the IEA podcast, the IEA’s Head of Education Dr Steve Davies walks the IEA’s Associate Director, Kate Andrews, through a relatively new theory called ‘The Foundational Economy’. This theory puts economic emphasis on material infrastructure in society - things like the water and sewer industries – and argues that these systems of provision have been undermined in the age of privatisation and outsourcing. Steve discusses the theory of the foundational economy, notes areas of support and criticisms, and highlights questions that arise from the theory: Is the British economy too London-centric? Have our politicians overlooked foundations of economic life and their importance? Should these services be delivered by the state?

The Bigger Picture: Where now for Brexit?

After further defeats in the Commons, Theresa May will soon find out how she fares in the Meaningful Vote on her deal. What will happen if she loses the vote, though, as she's widely expected to do. What are the viable alternatives? Has John Bercow lost the confidence of too many MPs? Are Parliament's actoins undermining democracy? How likely is another election? Or another referendum?
