Good episode? Give it some love!
Qatar has been given a further 48 hours to meet demands from its Arab neighbours. Noha Aboueldahab is an expert on the region at the Brookings Centre in Doha, and tells us what might happen next. Also in the programme, four former executives at the British bank Barclays have appeared in court in London over their role in an emergency fundraising deal at the height of the financial crisis. The BBC's Andrew Verity tells us what happened in the court. New research suggests that venture capitalists who provide funding for start-ups may have an inbuilt bias against women. Laura Huang is assistant professor of management at the Wharton School, and conducted the research, and we hear from British entrepreneur Louise Doherty, who has launched an app called PlanSnap, and had to jump through several funding hoops. We head to Zimbabwe, where we hear from startup businesses surviving and thriving despite the economic odds. Plus as Sony announces it will open a new plant in Japan to press vinyl records amid high demand, Nick Courtney of vinyl record store Sweet Memories tells us what attracts people to the retro technology.
