Westminster attack  

Roger Bolton hears listeners' responses to BBC Radio's coverage of the Westminster attack. Also, following a letter from more than 70 - mainly Conservative - MPs to the BBC which called the Corporation's coverage of Brexit pessimistic and skewed, BBC Economics Editor Kamal Ahmed discusses his role in uncertain economic times. This week, a documentary took listeners inside a hospital in northern Israel for 24 hours. Tim Samuels' Sleepover: Inside the Israeli Hospital followed doctors at Ziv hospital treating patients who had crossed over the border from Syria. Many listeners said it shone a light on a little-known story, while a few others raised concerns about what they saw as a lack of political context in the programme. Roger speaks to Tim Samuels. And Feedback reporter Rob Crossan is in Gateshead for an on-location recording of BBC Radio 3's long-running Jazz Record Requests programme from the Sage, as part of the network's Free Thinking Festival. Rob speaks to presenter Alyn Shipton about just how particular listeners are when it comes to specific versions of records and asks the audience whether it makes a difference to see as well as hear the programme. Presenter: Roger Bolton Producer: Katherine Godfrey. A Whistledown production for BBC Radio 4.

Missing Richard Simmons Finale Review, Tickled Shocker, And A Breakdown Breakdown?  

After recommending people watch the documentary "Tickled," the response from our listeners was an overwhelming, "What the F did I just watch"? Then a shocker: David D'amato, a key figure in the investigation, "died suddenly" this week according to the New York Times.  "Breakdown" from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution returned with a brand new, er, sound. Season three is hosted by investigative reporter Johnny Edwards and focuses on a doctor who continued to practice medicine despite a series of sexual abuse investigations. Can the podcast thrive without the home-spun voice of legal analyst Bill Rankin? With the conclusion of the runaway "Missing Richard Simmons" podcast, the crime writers look back on the six-part series. What did we ultimately learn about Simmons, host Dan Taberski, and about the feelings we project on celebrities? We'll give our review. In Crime of the Week, being assaulted - literally - by a tweet.

FDR3628 Left-Wing Death Camps | Mike Cernovich and Stefan Molyneux  

The history of left-wing violence, forced labor camps and mass murder is often obscured by traditional media and modern academia. The body-count left in the wake of Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin and Mao Zedong illustrated the dangers of communism, socialism and totalitarian leftist ideology overall. Mike Cernovich joins Stefan Molyneux to discuss Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's The Gulag Archipelago and the important historical lessons which much be learned to prevent the spread of violence in modern times.

Episode 084: Burnt the F Out  

We often hear about the upsides of business, but what about the down times? On today's show, James and Phoebe share their experiences with burn out and give the steps you can take to get out of it - and to not go back! 

James went through a burn out shortly after his first big win in 2007, where he successful released on online program, Bartend-4-Profit. He admits that he spent the following four years enduring frustration while pushing for the next big thing in his business.

Everything finally came together for James when he sold over $400,000 worth of a $97 online course, Video Traffic Academy, in 30 days.

This success gave him name recognition and more opportunities opened up for him as a result, but despite the success, he fell into the darkest period of his life. He says this happened once he realized that he had achieved the big launch he had been struggling so hard for, and then he lost all motivation.

Things turned around for James when he was given success recordings featuring Kevin Trudeau, which inspired him to really think about all of the stuff that he wanted to accomplish.

This material focused on manifestation and The Law of Attraction, and for the first time, James saw an example of someone getting tangible results from these concepts. Knowing what was possible made life and business become a new game for him.

He’s learned that happiness moves and it isn’t always found in the same place, so you always have to be asking yourself what it is that makes you happy today. You also don’t need to have a 5, 10 or 20-year plan in place, but it’s important to pull back and see the bigger picture of the direction that you’re heading in.

James had distinct phases that he went through. At first his motivation in business was for money, but then he moved into a more customer-centric phase where he focused on the transformation and impact he was having on his students and customers.

Phoebe had a different reaction after listening to the same success recordings that James did. They made her question where she was in her life and business and this sparked a downwards spiral as she ended up focusing on the negatives, or what she didn’t have.

Eventually she had a pivot, which led to her partnering with James on the podcast as well as a mastermind and other projects. To make this possible, she re-evaluated what she really did want in life, in addition to what she didn’t want.

Through his transition, James also changed his business model by looking at ways to generate revenue without having to do a launch every month. This resulted in the creation of Reel Marketing Insider, a membership site that generates about a half a million dollars annually for James with only two small launches each year.

Phoebe believes that people just need permission to decide how to fit their businesses into their lives, and not the other way around. James says you can ask your clients or audience who they aspire to be, and then simply step into that answer and live that.

After being motivated by money, and then his customers, James transitioned into a new phase where he focused on building and developing his team. He has a feeling of gratitude and fulfillment seeing the impact his business has on their lives and how everyone interacts and achieves together. He adds that remembering what we’re doing is bigger than us will keep us inspired!

Steps to avoid a burn out

Accept it - You are not alone and it’s a very common thing to face a burn out. You will have an easier time getting out of it if you accept this, rather than trying to solve it using willpower. Relax into it and be grateful for the experience, as you will be able to see the red flags in the future and have more tools to handle a burn out.

Follow your bliss – Do the play and not the work, as the work will just put you back into the burn out! James recommends making a list of 30 to 50 things that make you happy and just start doing them. Stay there for a while; sometimes we just need to recharge.

Choose what you want – Once you know what you do, and don’t want, build your ideal business around this. What are the rules that you will create for your life?

Don’t forget that more money isn’t the answer; it’s about getting clarity about your real desires and making the new game about getting that!

Episode 037: How to Develop a CEO Mindset

Tony Robbins, I Am Not Your Guru

The Shockingly Recent Race Riot You've Never Heard Of  

A brief glance at the cartoon version of America makes you think the South is pretty racist. Look at them, with their Confederate flags and voter ID laws! But while you were sleeping, the blue states were up to some pretty racist shit too. It's just that they've got better PR. For example, one of the biggest and most violent anti-segregation fights in US history didn't take place in 1950s Mississippi or Alabama, but 1970s Boston. The 70s! In Massachusetts! The land of Kennedys, Afflecks and liberal arts colleges was faced with the desegregation of schools and was like, "yo George Wallace, hold my beer!"To discuss some of the secretly f#&*ed up modern history of the United States, Jack O'Brien and Michael Swaim are joined by the guys from 'The Dollop': Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds. They discuss the Boston busing riots of the 70s, the comically-liberal blue state with secret ties to the KKK and why we're about to live through the Enron crisis all over again.Footnotes:The Dollop: https://goo.gl/8O7wNl The Dollop's List of Sources: https://goo.gl/gxXHza Podcast: The Dollop: Boston Busing 1974: https://goo.gl/BUPukJ Podcast: The Dollop: Oregon and the Ku Klux Klan: https://goo.gl/x4rrUf Podcast: The Dollop: Enron: https://goo.gl/3bWy1J Image: 11 Nations of America Map: https://goo.gl/vYXCPQ Article: US News & World Report: A Flag, A Busing Fight and a Famous Photograph: https://goo.gl/bxvKSZ Documentary: BBC: HyperNormalisation: https://goo.gl/77XQpb Article: Buzzfeed News: How Teens in the Balkans Are Duping Trump Supporters With Fake News: https://goo.gl/kyOEKO Video: Oregon Whale Explosion: https://goo.gl/gd5iPo The Cracked Podcast: Why Class in America Isn't Just About Income: https://goo.gl/2tliZx Article: Siderea: Class (American): https://goo.gl/tlmX4S This episode is brought to you by Squarespace (www.squarespace.com code: CRACKED), and Coca Cola & Powerade (www.coke.com/alwaysready.)

Brazil Meat Giants 'Sold Rotten Beef and Poultry'  

Three factories belonging to Brazilian meat giants BRF and JBS have been raided and closed down by police investigating reports that the companies have been bribing officials and politicians to ignore rotting and substandard meat. It has the potential to undermine a $12bn industry which exports all over the world. US President Donald Trump and the German Chancellor Angela Merkel have held their first face-to-face meeting. They emerged stating their commitment to defence spending and emphasising the need for fair, free trade deals. Meanwhile, US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has been meeting global finance counterparts from the G20 group in Baden Baden, Germany, to calm fears of a global trade war. Dennis Snower is an American economist and president of the Kiel Institute for the World Economy in Germany. The boss of anti-money laundering firm Accuity, Hugh M Jones the Fourth, tells us about his battle against the "bad guys" who use regular banks to hide their ill-gotten gains, and Kai Ryssdal of Marketplace talks to the director of a new documentary about US hedge fund titan Bill Ackman. The latest edition of 'Trumponomics' is back, including why a quarter per cent interest rate rise by the US Federal Reserve matters for the rest of the world. Plus, how much sleep do you get? Researchers say anything less than eight hours is not only as dangerous as drink driving, but could also be harming global productivity. Alex Ritson is joined throughout the programme by Elizabeth Jackson of ABC in Sydney, Australia. (PICTURE CREDIT: MAURICIO LIMA/AFP/Getty Images)

Weekend Woman's Hour: Ayobami Adebayo, Period Poverty, My Brilliant Friend  

Ayobami Adebayo is a Nigerian writer whose first novel, Stay With Me, has been long-listed for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction. Championed by Chimamanda Adichie and Margaret Atwood she was named a Bright Star of Nigerian writing by the Financial Times. Thordis Elva and Tom Stranger, talk about their journey from sexual violence to reconciliation. In 1996 their budding teenage romance ended when Tom raped Thordis at her home after a Christmas dance. Years later she decided to email him, telling him of the deep trauma he caused. In reply, he acknowledged his actions as rape, and they began a raw and painful, but ultimately healing dialogue. The two have written a book together, South of Forgiveness, about their experience. The Paula Principle is a new book which claims that women aren't getting the career success they deserve despite doing well academically. We speak to the author, Tom Schuller, about why this is. Girls in the UK are missing school because they are too poor to buy sanitary protection. The Scottish politician Monica Lennon and Tina Leslie from Freedom4Girls talk about period poverty. And, Japan's comfort women. Award winning documentary film maker, Tiffany Hsiung, spent six years making The Apology - about the more than 200 000 young women forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese Army during WWII. She talks about the grandmothers' struggle with shame, silence and memory loss, and their resilience as they continue their 22 year fight for an official apology from the Japanese Government. Parenting can be a lonely experience. So, what can mums and dads do about it? Sarah Hesz founder of Mush, an app designed to help people make new friends, Shannon Cullen, author of 'I'm Wrecked This Is My Journal,' and listener and new mum Bonnie discuss how to turn loneliness around. April De Angelis, who has adapted Elena Ferrante's novels for the stage talks to Jenni about her play My Brilliant Friend which is now on at the Rose Theatre in Kingston. Novelist Wendy Holden and Lisa Johnson, who's a wedding planner, discuss wedding trends and fads.

Intrigued by S-Town ! Disturbed by Tickled ! And the Owl Theory takes flight!  

What do you do in the middle of blizzard? Record a podcast, of course.  First, the trailer for the new Serial spin-off "S-town" dropped! What will the seven episode series be about? We don't know, but Sarah Koenig's crew gave us an interesting taste and OF COURSE we had to talk about it. Plus, despite taking an Alford plea last month, the Michael Peterson case is not *quite* over. The subject of the exceptional miniseries "The Staircase" is looking into the theory that his wife was actually killed in the stairwell during an owl attack. The claim had been downplayed by Peterson's defense team, and was the focus of episode 1 of the podcast "Criminal," but now they want experts to examine the feathers found with Kathleen's body. At this point does Peterson have anything to lose...or anything to win? Then it's probably the most unusual documentary ever discussed on the podcast. "Tickled," a journalist's look into videos of the sport of "competitive endurance tickling," is NOT the lighthearted romp the title might imply. Instead, the doc takes dark and unexpected turns as the reporter tries to uncover who is behind this secretive video empire and the attempt to ruin all foes in their way.  In the Crime of the Week: Moms + school dropoff lane + maybe too much "Big Little Lies" = gun play.
