Scrapping no-fault eviction is a start, but as Georgie Laming of Generation Rent tells Hannah and Jen, there are many more difficulties facing those trying to keep their heads above water in the renting section of the housing market.

Natasha Devon is back, this time chatting what’s what with anti-semitism in certain sectors of the Labour Party and how we can all help. And there’s more calls to fight racism, this time in football, as Jenny Off The Blocks finds Jen talking to Sarah Train, one of Kick It Out's professional clubs equality officers.

Also, the brilliant Libby Liburd is in to talk boxing in general, women boxers past and present in particular, and how it’s all incorporated in her new play, Fighter (Stratford Circus, Apr 25 to 27).

Dunleavy Does Dystopia visits the not-too-distant future of 2022, as seen through 1973’s Soylent Green, starring Big Chucky H himself, and there’s a vision of future peace on Twitter that no one’s ready to believe in the Bush Telegraph.
