We set the UK Citizenship Test on young people. Listen to see if they pass as a true Brit…

“The old war mentality, all mucking in and doing our bit for the better of Britain.”

Our journalists went to this year’s Anti-Slavery Day to hear about the reality of slavery today:

“What we’re dealing with is a hidden crime.”

Listen to what life is like when you have a ‘hatred of sound’.

“My whole life I’d just assumed I was irritable”

The government’s latest plan to tackle the obesity crisis in the UK is to give overweight people money for losing weight.

You told us how you feel about this..

“What if they try and gain weight so they can lose weight to make money?”

Get comfy and have a listen to everything we’ve covered this week:
1) Mercury Music Prize

2) Life in Cape Town

3) Politicians, expenses and the government

4) Are women better leaders?

Let the leadership debate commence:

“Women are good at picking up all the pieces when they’re broken but men are good at putting them together.”

Our journalist Issy Moore went to Cape Town and recorded a series of interviews with teenage girls. She spoke to girls at a charity called Rock Girls in Manenburg who talked about their experiences of the infamous gang culture in their area and their fears of being a woman in their society.

She then did a contrast interview with a group of girls from a private school in Cape Town to show the differences between their lives despite only living 20 mins apart.

“They put the gun in their schoolbag and then they shoot.”

Is the Mercury Music Prize worth anything? Let the debate begin…

“All music is a matter of opinion therefore cannot be defined by a competition.”

Sit back and listen to all of this week’s podcasts:

1) U2: our review

2) Skin colour

3) Nottingham Comic Con

4) Stereotypes

5) Young people in the news

U2 were generous enough to give their album away for free but the truth is, do we really want it?

“Everyone was like why have I got U2 on my iPhone? I hate U2! “
