The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Why investing in shares needs a much higher profile on TV and Radio
Lord John Lee has become a champion for people investing in the stock market over recent years: he's written three books on investing, he's a patron of ShareSoc, the society for individual shareholders in the United Kingdom, and he's now challenging Government, broadcasters and regulators to encourage a much higher profile for investing in shares on TV and radio. Gavin Oldham meets with John to discuss the background to his initiative and his proposals for change; and they go on to consider how customer share ownership can be expanded, how to encourage more active participation in shareholder voting, and how to improve financial education

Gadgets & Gizmos: Zero Emission Cars
As Simon Rose takes a well-earned break, we re-visit a programme first broadcast in March 2017 when Share Radio was a national DAB station. From April 2017, zero emission cars have been the only vehicles exempt from road tax. Despite growing interest and increasing pressure to move away from polluting vehicles many were still reluctant to make the jump. So just what are zero emissions cars and what should you consider when making the switch from petrol? Tom Hill looks at the current state of zero emissions technology and the challenges facing the industry hearing from a range of experts and commentators

The Bigger Picture: A World of Individual Opportunity - the Vision of Egalitarian Capitalism
Imagine a world in which everyone has a stake in the great tech firms that serve them each day, and where dividends are gradually replacing wages to provide regular income for everyone, as work becomes scarcer as a result of automation? Imagine a world where every young person not only has a small inheritance with which to start their adult life, but also the opportunity to build its value by learning life skills? Simon Rose is taking a well-earned break this week, so we’re taking the opportunity to bring you a talk given Gavin Oldham in August to the leading City of London think-tank Z/Yen.

The Business of Film: The top ten Westerns
With Simon Rose taking a well-earned break, we re-visit 'The Westerns' from our top ten reviews. Vicky Sayers is joined by film critic and broadcaster, James Cameron-Wilson, to discuss some of the most influential films from the Western genre. Incredibly popular during the silent film era, the Western was revived in 1939 with John Ford’s 'Stagecoach', and reached its peak in the 1950s. But are its best days really behind it?

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Sainsbury's & Supermarkets and Paypal & Cryptocurrencies
Laith Khalaf, head of investment analysis at A J Bell, looks at the rumours of a bid for Sainsbury's. In the light of the bidding for rival supermarket chain Morrison's, he asks whether private investors should rethink their attitude towards the sector. He also looks at a new service from Paypal allowing UK consumers to trade and hold cryptocurrencies. With a potential (not yet offered in Britain) to process crypto transactions between consumers, he wonders if such a transactional facility is any more than just a sales gimmick.

This Is Money: Is there a way to boost YOUR state pension and how easy is it to now retire abroad?
When it comes to state pensions, there has been plenty of talk in recent weeks about the triple lock and what could mean next month when it comes to an uplift. However, more than 2 million receive less than £100 a week in state pension payments – is there a way to boost it? Tanya Jefferies, Lee Boyce and Georgie Frost discuss and reveal the common reasons why you might not receive the full state pension. Sticking with the pension theme, we talk through a case of an ex-Judge who faced a hefty 'advice' fee when he made a decision on a drawdown pot. Spain is still the top choice for those planning to retire overseas – but has the pandemic and Brexit put more people off a life in the sun? Lee reveals why it is now time to be chasing savings rates again and his tips for making sure a challenger bank you've never heard of is a good spot for your cash.

The Hypnotist: for restless and interrupted sleep
Struggling to get a good night's sleep? Do unexplained noises in the middle of the night spook you? Adam Cox uses this episode to challenge irrational belief systems of ghosts etc .., which can generate a 'flight or fight' alertness just when you need to drop off. By re-interpreting such sounds as those of, perhaps, a guardian angel, and re-visiting calmer emotional responses he points the way to more peaceful and relaxing nights ahead.
