Audiobook: Superinvestors

In a new partnership with publishers Harriman House, Share Radio has produced its first audiobook 'Superinvestors', written by Matthew Partridge and read by some of Share Radio's best known presenters. 'Superinvestors' lays bare the investing secrets of legendary investors - from early 20th-century figures such as Benjamin Graham and John Maynard Keynes, through to more modern names such as Anthony Bolton and Warren Buffett.

The Bigger Picture

The Bigger Picture is Simon Rose at his presenting best. He regularly enjoys digging behind the headlines to find the really interesting stories that are being talked about by economists and think-tanks which are helping to shape the conversations in Whitehall. From the Adam Smith Institute to the Taxpayers Alliance, to the wonderful Professors Steve Keen and Tim Evans, Simon brings the latest political and economic thinking into sharp focus.

Company Casebook

Our half-hour business documentary series where we go behind the scenes of interesting companies both large and small, looking for the human stories behind the financial numbers and analysing the who, why, where, what and when of business at the sharp end.

Company Citizen

The Company Citizen starts from the premise that businesses doing good in the world and doing "good business" are one in the same; and that businesses doing good in the world has moved from ‘nice to have’ to essential for the future - at the level of planet, nation and community. Tackling the challenges of climate change, hunger or poor health makes sense in the long run for businesses, both within their companies and more broadly. In this series, Linda Lewis is joined by Tom Levitt, an author and a consultant on responsible business who has worked for organisations as diverse as Boots, Serco and the British Standards Institution; as well as charities, think tanks and local authorities. A former MP, Tom has many years of experience in charities and community and international development. Together, Linda and Tom will explore these issues and address the triple bottom line of business – that of financial, social and environmental purpose.

In the series, Peter will tackle issues such as discrimination; whether there is a role for unions in the gig economy; what we might be able to do to alleviate London’s accommodation crisis and what is wrong with the UK education system. Through discussion with experts, the show will help to inform listeners about the key issues that matter in these debates.

Gadgets and Gizmos

Stocks may rise and fall, businesses may boom and bust, but gadgets keep appearing at an ever-increasing rate. Share Radio’s Gadgets & Gizmos show explores the latest technological innovations, from the indispensable to the downright ridiculous. Show host Simon Rose and technology editor Steve Caplin take a weekly humorous look at what’s on offer, featuring both existing products and those whose inventors utilise crowdfunding platforms to make them a reality. Through its 100-plus shows, Gadgets & Gizmos has delved into the world of wifi, Bluetooth and exploding lithium batteries, reviewing gadgets of interest and ridiculing those that should never have got off the drawing board. Where some financial journalists tell you how to make your money grow, Gadgets & Gizmos tells you how to spend it – and when not to.
