How the Supreme Court is reshaping the US

Abortion, environmental protections and gun ownership rights are among the controversial topics the US Supreme Court has ruled on over recent weeks. The highest court in the land has the final say on interpreting laws and deciding what’s constitutional and what isn’t. Now - with a clear conservative majority at the helm - the court’s move to overturn the landmark 1973 ruling guaranteeing abortion rights across the country (Roe v. Wade) signals it’s willing to re-visit previous judgments many had considered ‘settled law’. Campaigners fear past decisions on other subjects, such as gay marriage, the right to contraception and even the way elections are run, may now also be overturned. So, what is the role of the Supreme Court within the United States’ system of government and is it changing? How will its rulings impact politics federally and in individual states? And is the system set up by America’s founding fathers working as designed, or is political polarisation undermining the very principles it was built around?

Paul Henley is joined by a panel of expert guests.
Producers: Paul Schuster and Zak Brophy.

Twitter takeover: Musk $44bn bid is off the table

The billionaire businessman Elon Musk has backed out of a $44bn deal to buy social media site Twitter. Mr Musk said he'd pulled out because Twitter failed to provide sufficient information on the number of spam and fake accounts. But the world's richest man faces a $1bn break-up fee and possible lawsuit by opting out. Shares in Twitter fell by 7% in extended trading after Mr Musk's announcement.

Elsewhere, we get more reaction to the shock news of Shinzo Abe's assassination in Japan and look at his policy of 'Abenomics'.

Rahul Tandon is joined by Yoko Ishikura, Professor Emeritus of Hitotsubashi University in Japan and Paddy Hirsch, contributing editor at NPR based in Los Angeles.

Reporting the Afghan earthquake

It's more than two weeks since a deadly earthquake struck south east Afghanistan, killing more than a thousand people and leaving tens of thousands homeless. Auliya Atrafi from BBC Media Action in Kabul and Aamir Peerzada from BBC Delhi both travelled to the epicentre in Paktika province, and Ali Hamedani tracked down survivors from his base in London.

Bolsonaro and Brazil's black women voters
Evangelical Christian black women from poor backgrounds played a significant role in the election of Brazil's right-wing president Jair Bolsonaro 4 years ago. BBC Brasil’s Nathalia Passarinho visited cities around the country to find out why they voted for a candidate accused of making racist and sexist comments then, and will they do it again?

Cairo houseboats
The famous houseboats on the River Nile in the heart of Cairo are being demolished and towed away. The authorities say they are standing in the way of the state's grand development plans, but there has been a campaign to save these iconic floating homes, in which some families have lived for decades. BBC Cairo's Sally Nabil visited the residents to hear their stories.

Women tackling the global plastic crisis

Two women confronting the dangers of plastic pollution talk to Kim Chakanetsa. They’re sounding the alarm and working on innovative solutions: from an island clear-up that collected 750,000 empty plastic bottles to reducing microplastics in the air and waterways.

Estrela Matilde lives on the island of Príncipe off the coast of West Africa – where her work to reduce plastic pollution has helped increase the number of turtle nests by more than 40 percent to 2,500 over six years. Estrela is a Whitley Fund for Nature winner 2022.

Siobhan Anderson is a co-founder of a start-up called The Tyre Collective. They're working to find a solution to the plastic pollution caused by tyre wear. The waste from tyres as they degrade is the second largest microplastic pollutant in the environment – making up to 28% of primary microplastics in our oceans, as well as contributing to airborne pollution. Siobhan is from California in the United States and is now based in London.

Boris Johnson

Less than three years after winning a landslide victory, the UK’s Conservative party Prime Minister Boris Johnson has resigned. It follows a series of political scandals, election defeats and his own party’s loss of trust and confidence in his leadership.

During his time in office, Johnson - like all leaders around the world - had to deal with a number of unexpected global situations: a pandemic, the economic fallout of war in Ukraine and the ongoing cost of living crisis. But it was questions about his character that brought him down and scandals such as ‘Partygate’ where he attended group gatherings at 10 Downing Street, with alcohol present, during lockdowns.

Two journalists based in Belgium and France discuss Boris Johnson’s reputation abroad and the reaction of European leaders with host James Reynolds.

We also hear from Conservative voters in the UK about the Prime Minister’s strengths - and weaknesses - including Conservative party active Jan from Dunstable in England:

“I’ve supported Mr Johnson through thick and thin, through Brexit, through the pandemic, through Partygate, you name it, I’ve supported him. But unfortunately I’ve had to say enough is enough.”

The bomb

Who was Klaus Fuchs, the man who stole the bomb? How did a prodigious young talent at the beginning of a promising academic career, evolve into a fully committed Soviet spy?

Journalist Rosa Ellis grew up hearing stories about her great aunt, Ursula Kuczynski, aka Agent Sonya, Klaus Fuchs’ handler. How did Fuchs and her aunt come to cross paths?

Fuchs comes of age in Nazi Germany, but his scientific brilliance offers him an escape - to England. An ‘enemy alien’ with Communist leanings, he is deemed as a risk to the country and shipped off to Canada, where he falls into the Soviet espionage web. Upon his return to England, his double life begins. At the same time, another German emigre and scientist, Rudolf Peierls, seeks a trustworthy assistant and a brilliant scientist for the burgeoning British atomic bomb project. So begins a human chain reaction with devastating potential.

Fuchs soon finds himself in the belly of the beast, assisting Peierls on the bomb whilst simultaneously slipping secrets to Agent Sonya, aka Ursula Kuczynski, Rosa’s great aunt and the Red Army’s leading intelligence officer in Britain.

Fuchs and Peierls’ friendship grows stronger and the two are quickly snapped up for the new US atomic effort. Suspicions are raised about Fuchs and his double life suddenly becomes even more dangerous, as his espionage skills are put to the test.

Finally MI5 begin to close in on both Fuchs and Ursula, and top interrogator Skardon pushes their loyalties to the limit. Will Fuchs reveal himself to his closest friends, the Peierls, who trusted him enough to let him stay under their roof? Or will he remain loyal to the cause, and die with his secrets?

Inside Norway’s future library

In Nordmarka forest just outside of Oslo, one thousand trees have been planted to supply paper for a special anthology of books to be printed in one hundred years' time. Every year over the next century, a leading writer is selected to contribute a text, with the writings held in trust, unpublished, until the year 2114. Writers so far have included Margaret Atwood, Han Kang and David Mitchell. Catharina Moh speaks to two of the creative forces behind the project, the artist Katie Paterson and the urban planner Anne Beate Hovind.

It's often advised that you should talk to your plants, but what about playing them music? We revisit Barcelona's Liceu Opera House where, in 2020 following lockdown, Spanish conceptual artist Eugenio Ampudia created a very unusual new performance: a special concert for an audience of 2,292 plants.

The award-winning Australian writer Robbie Arnott discusses his novel The Rain Heron and reflects on how the forests in his home state of Tasmania have shaped his outlook as a writer.

Long Covid ‘brain fog’

Following a bout of Covid-19, a significant number of people suffer with weeks or months of 'brain fog' - poor concentration, forgetfulness, and confusion. This is one of the manifestations of Long Covid. A team of scientists in the United States has now discovered that infection in the lung can trigger an inflammatory response which then causes patterns of abnormal brain cell activity. It’s the kind of brain cell dysregulation also seen in people who experience cognitive problems following chemotherapy for cancer.

Also in the programme, the latest discoveries about the asteroid Bennu from the Osiris Rex mission, how Malayasian farmers led US researchers to a botanical discovery, and a new explanation for why dinosaurs took over the world 200 million years ago.

Artists can conjure up people, cities, landscapes and entire worlds using just a pencil or a paintbrush. But some of us struggle to draw simple stick figures or a circle that’s actually round. CrowdScience listener Myck is a fine artist from Malawi, and he’s been wondering if there’s something special about his brain that has turned him into an artist. It’s a craft that combines visionary ideas with extraordinary technical skill, but where does that all come from? Do artists have different brains from non-artists? What is it that makes someone a creative person, while others are not? And is artistic ability innate, or is it something you can learn? Presenter Marnie Chesterton goes on a colourful journey into the mind to find out how artistic people see the world differently.

Earthquake in Afghanistan: 'Everything we had is under the dirt'

The destruction wrought by the earthquake on the 22 of June 2022 on Paktika province in Afghanistan has been immense. Some whole villages were destroyed; in some communities, whole families died. There have been other losses too: of livestock, livelihoods and much sense of hope for the future. But even amid all this, Secunder Kermani found Afghan hospitality undimmed.

Over recent weeks, the state of Texas has been the scene of two horrific mass deaths – which received rather different media treatment. Will Grant covered both the aftermath of the school shooting in Uvalde which left a class of ten-year-olds and their two teachers dead; and the more muted response to the discovery of the bodies of 53 people - presumed to be migrants from Central America who had asphyxiated while being smuggled into the USA - in a van in San Antonio. He reflects on the bitter ironies of both events – and the nation’s response to them.

Digital greetings messages – often complete with made-to-order video content – are a huge business on social media in China. But some of these messages, made to send congratulations for birthdays, exam results or personal milestones, play on racist stereotypes. As a Black woman living in Beijing for six years, Runako Celina had her own experiences of being gawked at or commented on. So when she saw videos containing racist cliches, insults and ridicule in Mandarin, she went to investigate who was making them – and making money from them. The trail led all the way to a makeshift studio in Malawi – and a dramatic confrontation.

Would you like to fly Iraqi Airways? The flights do tend to leave on time – and some Iraqis are still proud to use the national carrier. Lizzie Porter wanted to buy a seat to Erbil, but had no luck at all using the airline’s website. And at its booking office in Baghdad, she found the process for getting a seat still stuck in the past - complete with long queues, printed tickets, ink stamps and payment in cash only. And for some analysts, the company’s woes signal the wider failings of the country’s economy.

Floating justice

The city of Macapá is in the middle of a river archipelago with around 50 villages and 14,000 inhabitants, where the Amazon meets the Atlantic Ocean. Some of these communities are almost impossible to reach, with dense mangroves and fluctuating water levels making the journey dangerous. For a long time, conflicts were resolved by local leaders, from theft, to land disputes, to rape. The machete was often the quickest recourse to justice.

Judge Sueli Pini visited Macapá 20 years ago. Seeing the problem, she founded a system that’s unique in the world, the “floating court.” Four times a year, an old steam vessel called the João Bruno II becomes this “court.” It’s loaded with lawyers, social workers and a judge. These representatives of Brazil’s justice system arrive by water, sleep in hammocks and wear flip-flops. The journey lasts a week. Villages in some of the remotest parts of the Amazon River system are visited and hundreds of complaints processed.

In these remote river habitations, where the law is all too easy to avoid, rules can easily be bent. Join journalist Fabian Federl and the legal team on their week-long journey. The setting is rudimentary and justice must be swift. It may be a month or more before the boat can return to enforce the decisions made, so the judge must seek solutions which can appease both claimant and defendant.

The fungi kingdom

It’s not just fauna and flora, there’s a third, much overlooked kingdom of life – fungi.

Fungi are essential for plant and soil health, and therefore our own survival.

It’s not just the mushrooms that we eat, in this programme we celebrate fungi in all its forms. Fungi already play important roles in our food production and medicine, scientists are now investigating fungi based solutions for environmental pollution and waste disposal.

We’re joined by biologist Merlin Sheldrake in the United Kingdom, author of ‘Entangled Life’, Giuliana Furci, mycologist and founder of the Fungi Foundation, the world’s first non-governmental organisation for the protection of fungi, based in Chile and Danielle Stevenson, a mycologist looking at soil toxicity in the United States.

The space genius who needed a guide to life on earth

Sara Seager is an MIT astrophysicist. She has made it her life’s work to peer into the spaces around stars – looking for exoplanets outside our solar system, hoping to find the one-in-a-billion world that is enough like ours to sustain life. But after the unexpected death of her husband, Sara struggled with some of the new day-to-day tasks that she had to take on. She tells Jo Fidgen the story of how a three-page guide written by her late husband helped her to navigate life on earth, while she continued making ground-breaking discoveries in the skies. A longer version of this interview was first broadcast in October 2020.

Keeping medicines cool

How enzymes and earthen pots could help keep medicines safe.

Access to life-saving medicines often relies on a complex system known as the cold-chain – the refrigerated lorries, store rooms and fridges, which keeps them at the right temperature from the factory to the patient.

However, a traditional cold chain runs on electricity- meaning that it’s often difficult to keep medicines and vaccines cold for long enough to reach the remote places and look after them when the electricity supply is intermittent.

The food we eat also relies on the cold chain to keep it cool from the farm until it reaches our plates.

We meet some of the inventors and entrepreneurs working on cooling solutions, from using enzymes from a special bacteria that make water freeze at a higher temperature, to the earthen pots keeping insulin cool in India.

No country for Azov Greeks

Fleeing from the war-torn Mariupol in eastern Ukraine, Afina Khadzynova is trying to reconnect to her Greek roots in the Mediterranean island of Cyprus.

The ethnic Greek community has been in Mariupol since the 18th Century. Up until February of this year the city's Greeks had a vibrant cultural life, celebrating their language, traditions and religious rites, brutally cut short by the Russian invasion. Within weeks traditional Greek settlements were levelled and the city itself was besieged, leaving civilians to shelter in their basements without food, water, heat or mobile connection.

Afina and her mother Olympiada managed to escape after two weeks under siege, yet her brother and nieces still remain in the occupied city. She began communicating with reporter Natalia Golysheva Deis, sending voice notes that reflect her life in the city, and her transformation into a refugee. A self-proclaimed non-believer, when the war came she started to pray to an old Greek icon to shield her from shelling. Now in Cyprus, she meets Natalia Deis around orthodox Easter as she settles into her new life away from her beloved home.

Walking The Iron Curtain

Walking the Iron Curtain: Frozen frontiers

A few hundred Lithuanians, dozens of elk and tens of thousands of migrating birds share a narrow parade of sand dunes with the Russian military. Passed between nations and empires for hundreds of years, the Curonian Spit National Park will be on the frontline if Vladimir Putin decides to seize more of the territory he regards as a natural extension of Russia.

In the final part of her journey along the Iron Curtain, Mary-Ann Ochota meets the naturalists working metres from the Russian border and the locals forbidden in Soviet times from visiting their local beaches and swimming from their own shores.

From the Baltic coast she travels to northern Finland where border territory is being rewilded. Vast tracts of land are seized back from the forestry and peat industries and returned to the forest reindeer and wolverines that once thrived here. The Finnish naturalists once worked hand-in-hand with their Russian colleagues but today the age-old fear of their powerful neighbour has returned. The dream of the European Greenbelt, linking people and nature across dissolving borders, here meets the stark reality of aggressive nationalism.

America’s first gay election candidate

In 1961 the first openly gay person ran for public office in the United States. He was a drag queen called Jose Sarria, well-known for his performances at the bohemian 'Black Cat' bar in San Francisco. He was determined to stop gay people being second-class citizens. His friend and fellow drag performer Mike-Michelle spoke to Josephine McDermott about his memories of the campaign.

In 1928 the smear test was invented by Dr George Papanicoloau, a Greek immigrant who had made a new life in the United States. He discovered a way of detecting changes in cells from a woman’s cervix, which meant cancer could be prevented from developing. His work has stopped millions of women worldwide getting cancer. Dr Papanicolaou’s great niece Olga Stamatiou speaks to Laura Jones.

It’s 10 years since scientists in Geneva said they believed they had found the Higgs Boson - known as the 'God particle'. In July 2012 after more than 40 years of searching, teams taking part in experiments at the Large Hadron Collider confirmed the existence of the particle which gives everything mass. Dr André David from CERN speaks to Laura Jones.

In 1968 and early 1969 university students across Japan fought pitched battles with riot police after they barricaded themselves into their lecture halls and went on strike. They were protesting about the poor quality of their education and the inequalities of Japanese society in a period of rapid economic change. Emily Finch talks to Kazuki Kumamoto who was a young student who joined the protests. This is a Whistledown production for BBC World Service.

The south-east region of Nigeria declared itself to be the independent state of Biafra. In response, Nigerian forces invaded the state on the 6th July 1967, beginning the Nigerian Civil War. More than a million people died before the fighting stopped. We bring you one child’s story of getting caught up in the frontline. In 2021 Paul Waters spoke to Patricia Ngozi Ebigwe, now better known as TV and music star Patti Boulaye, who was 13 years old when she had to try to escape the conflict.

How can we get more people on their bikes?

Cycling is healthy, cheap - and as modes of transport go, they don’t come much greener.

Worldwide, transport is responsible for nearly a quarter of all carbon emissions, with road transport alone accounting for 75% of that. But so far, most discussions on greening the transport sector have focussed on electrifying our cars, trucks and buses – overlooking the vital role that bicycles could play in the climate transition. In fact, experts say that we’re unlikely to meet our short-term climate goals without more people getting on their bikes. So what needs to change to make that happen?

We look at what’s been done on streets of Bogota, New York and Kampala to get more people cycling across the world.

Nicole Amarteifio is a Ghanaian film director and screenwriter. She’s best known for her show An African City, which chronicles the adventures of five female friends who return to live in Ghana after spending time abroad. The story is autobiographical and one of the main actors is Nicole's childhood friend.

Pension dipping in Peru and Chile

Millions of people in Peru and Chile have been allowed to empty their retirement pots to cope with Covid-19 and rising prices, putting the pension system and the economy at risk.

Chilean Senator Alejandra Sepulveda explains why she supported early pension withdrawals as a one-time emergency measure to reactivate the economy while the OECD’s expert on pensions Pablo Antolin explains the relevance of restricting this kind of initiatives to only those in need.

We also hear from pension-dippers Ana Alvarez, Antonio Aliaga, and Antonio Valladares on why they don’t trust the pension system in their countries and Peruvian business reporter Karina Montoya reflects on how free pension-dipping during the pandemic has completely changed the way people see retirement funds in her country.

All this money leaving retirement funds at the same time is having consequences in the economy, as the former finance minister of Peru, David Tuesta, and the current finance minister of Chile, Mario Marcel, tell us.

Are artistic brains different?

Artists can conjure up people, cities, landscapes and entire worlds using just a pencil or a paintbrush. But some of us struggle to draw simple stick figures or a circle that’s round. CrowdScience listener Myck is a fine artist from Malawi, and he’s been wondering if there’s something special about his brain.

Myck takes Marnie Chesterton on a tour of his studio, where he paints onto huge canvases sewn from offcuts of local fabric. He’s a self-taught artist and he’s convinced he sees things differently to other people. So where does that all come from? Do artists have different brains from non-artists? And what is it that makes someone a creative person, while others are not?

With the help of a jigsaw puzzle, a large metal donut, a swimming cap covered in electrodes and and a really boring brick, Marnie probes the brains of people working to find answers to those questions. She’ll be learning about how we don’t really see what we think we see, why creative people’s brains are like private aeroplanes, and how daydreaming can be a full time job.

Cleopatra: Uganda's history-making trans activist

After a series of humiliating incidents including being forced to strip to 'prove' her gender, Cleopatra Kambugu fought back to become Uganda's first trans person to receive official documents recognising her as female.

Bre Orcasitas is a wildfire fighter in the US. She's part of what are known as 'hot shot crews', nomadic teams of elite firefighters who travel from state to state tackling blazes in remote areas. Outlook’s Laura Thomas hears all about the role.

Justo Gallego Martinez spent more than 50 years building a cathedral with his own hands using only recycled materials. The former monk, who died in 2021 at the age of 96, lived inside his creation which lies just east of the Spanish capital Madrid. Guy Hedgecoe went to meet him in 2015.

Rajapaksa to resign: What next for Sri Lanka's economy?

Sri Lanka's President Gotabaya Rajapaksa is to stand down on Wednesday. Thousands of protesters stormed both his and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe's official residences over the weekend. The president has been blamed for the country's economic mismanagement, which has caused dire shortages of food, fuel and medicine for months. The prime minister has also announced that he is standing down, but where does this leave the crisis-hit country? Independent policy analyst Amita Arudpragasm speaks to us from Colombo.

Elsewhere, the fallout from the collapse of Elon Musk's plan to buy Twitter continues. The Tesla boss has mocked the social media giant for threatening to sue him for cancelling the proposed $44bn buyout. Professor of Law at Columbia University in New York, John Coffee, talks us through all the ramifications.

Tensions grow in South Africa over continuing rolling power blackouts.

The mysterious particles of physics, part 2

Episode 2: Lost in the Dark

Physics is getting a good understanding of atoms, but embarrassingly they’re only a minor part of the Universe. Far more of it is made of something heavy and dark, so-called dark matter. The scientists who discovered the Higgs boson ten years ago thought they’d also create dark matter in the underground atom smasher at CERN. But they haven’t seen it yet. Roland Pease joins them as they redouble their efforts at the upgraded Large Hadron Collider, and travels to Boulby Underground Laboratory inside Britain's deepest mine, where subterranean telescopes hope to see dark matter streaming through the Galaxy.

Shrimps, saris and guns

Deep in the jungles of Bangladesh, a small group of women secretly practise army-style drills. This small team, made exclusively of female village residents, are fighting a global economic force - the world’s insatiable appetite for shrimp. The BBC's Faarea Masud investigates as the demand for shrimp is destroying the land the women have farmed for centuries, and they are willing to do everything they can to protect it from the illegal intensive farming which renders their farmland rapidly unusable. With allegations of payments made to corrupt officials to turn a blind eye, and with little financial clout themselves, the women have taken matters into their own hands in the battle with the global shrimp industry.

Yuri Herrera - starting a new novel

Yuri Herrera is a political scientist, editor, and prize-winning novelist, considered one of the most relevant Mexican writers in the Spanish language.

When we meet him he's starting his new novel, which he says will take him in a different direction to his previous books, basing it on Benito Juarez, the first President of Mexico of indigenous origin. What's less known about him is that he was exiled briefly, in 1853, to New Orleans where Yuri now lives. We join him as he walks the streets Benito would have walked, searching for inspiration as he embarks on his writing.

Abi Morgan is a playwright and screenwriter based in London, and she'd made a name for herself writing successful and often highly emotional films and TV Series such as The Iron Lady, Shame, and The Split.

In 2019 her life took such a strange and unfamiliar turn, she says it was almost like she'd landed in one of her scripts. Her partner Jacob was ill and put into a medically induced coma. Eight months later, he woke up, and no longer recognised Abi as his wife.

Abi has written a book about her experiences called This Is Not a Pity Memoir.

The encryption methods we currently use to keep our data safe and secure could be a thing of the past soon. Experts expect quantum computers to be able to crack these encryption codes quite easily in the future, which could have devastating consequences. After a six year selection process, the National Institute of Standards and Technology in the United States has chosen four initial algorithms for their quantum-safe cryptography standards. Gareth speaks to Anne Dames, an engineer at IBM, where three of the final four were developed.

Mobile app for tinnitus
Hearing a ringing or buzzing in your ear can be very difficult to deal with. A number of mobile tinnitus apps are now promising help. One of them, called TinniBot, even includes an AI chatbot that provides support whenever it is needed. Our reporter Fern Lulham has been finding out more.

US dollar could further strengthen against Euro

For the first time in two decades, one Euro has slid to match the price of one US dollar. It's a sign of how Europe and America are diverging on policy in the face of difficult global trade conditions. But analysts say parity isn't necessarily good news for US companies. Joe Saluzzi from Themis Trading in New Jersey explains what it could mean for markets at home and abroad.

With Sri Lanka's president due to resign, what legacy will his successor inherit? Geopolitical analyst Asanga Abeyagoonase joins us on the programme.

Dr Marek Kubik from battery firm Fluence tells us why it's time Europe invested in energy storage. We speak to the Belgian schoolchildren who've designed a product to tackle the stigma around periods.

Also, a sauce in short supply: restauranteur Didier Quemener explains why French cooks are taking Dijon mustard off the menu.

The Reclaimers

The reclaimers: Bronzes and Birmingham

Actor and musician Kema Sikazwe is on a mission to uncover his own personal history as he leaves the UK to return to his homeland of Zambia for the first time since he was three years old.

As Kema travels, he learns how museums are telling the uncomfortable stories behind some of the objects in their collection. He joins pupils from his old primary school learning why The Great North Museum in Newcastle is offering to return an ancient musical instrument to Nigeria.
Arriving in Birmingham, Sara Wajid, co-director of Birmingham Museums explains how 'decolonising museums' goes way beyond returning objects. He also meets legendary photographer Vanley Burke, putting together a new exhibition with curator Candice Nembhard at the former home of a famous industrialist in Handsworth.

Meeting the young members of We Are Birmingham, Kema hears how they have been challenged to transform the iconic round room at Birmingham’s Museum and Art Gallery, and seeks their advice on how best to approach his own forthcoming journey.

Women, sport and business: Merchandise

In this episode of Business Daily, the latest in our series on women, sport and business, it's all about the merch.

We'll explore how important replica tops and kits actually are for women’s sport in terms of fandom, participation and of course money. We ask what female sports fans and participants actually want to wear and whether they're being adequately catered for.

Dr Katie Lebel is Professor at the University of Guelph in Canada and researches gender equity in sports branding and consumer behaviour. She tells us there is a distinct lack of data in this area and as a result sports wear firms are definitely missing out on revenue.

Dana Brookman is founder of the Canadian girl's baseball league and tells us her biggest challenge has been sourcing suitable uniform for her teams, and Sam Fenwick visits sport wear manufacturer Kukri to see what they have available for women and how they're working to improve their offer.

Did organic farming cause Sri Lanka’s collapse?

Sri Lanka is now in the worst economic crisis they have seen in decades, schools are closed, fuel is in short supply, there are power cuts and a shortage of food. The President has been forced to resign and the political future of the country is uncertain.

But can the current problems be traced back to a decision to take the country’s food production completely organic?

In 2021 the President of Sri Lanka announced a total ban on chemical fertilizer and pesticides. Health concerns were given as a reason, but in the background was the pandemic, loss of tourism and a lack of natural fertilizer available in the country.

After protests the ban on chemical fertilizer was reversed, but had it already caused too much damage?

This week on The Inquiry we ask, did organic farming cause Sri Lanka’s collapse?

A governance crisis has engulfed the sport of weightlifting and it faces an uncertain future, and as it stands weightlifting won´t feature in the Los Angeles Olympics in 2028.

Taras Shevchenko: The slave who became a symbol of Ukrainian independence

There are hundreds of monuments to the poet and painter Taras Shevchenko not just in Ukraine but all over the world. It is hard to overstate the importance of Shevchenko for most Ukrainians. For them he is not just the national poet who breathed new life into the Ukrainian language but a symbol of their country’s independence. His words kept the national spirit alive during the decades of forced Russification in the 19th Century and they found renewed resonance during the 2014 Maidan uprising. But Shevchenko's work is less well known beyond eastern Europe.

To remedy this Bridget Kendall is joined by Ukrainian writers and literary scholars Olha Poliukhovych from the National University of Kyiv - Mohyla Academy and Mykhailo Nazarenko from Taras Shevchenko Kyiv National University, and by professor of Slavonic studies at Vienna University Michael Moser. The reader is Ivantiy Novak.

The teenage mum who became a soul star

By the age of 17, PP Arnold was unhappily married with two young children. But a telephone call, out of the blue, inviting her to audition for Tina Turner was about to set her off on a very different course in life. One that would take her from the USA to London at the height of the Swinging Sixties, working with some of the biggest artists in the world and turn a teenage mum into a soul singing star.

PP Arnold has written a book about her life and music career called Soul Survivor.

Conversion Norway-style

In 2007 Christian and Muslim leaders in Norway controversially recognised for the first time in modern history, the right to convert between the two faiths without harassment or impediment. They also called for all missionary work to be conducted “without force or manipulation".

The “Joint declaration on the freedom of religion and the right to conversion” was welcomed as an important contribution to inter-faith dialogue in the Scandinavian nation. But it was also seen by some Muslims as recognizing the right to abandon Islam, which is considered apostasy and punishable as a criminal offense in many Muslim countries. It was similarly criticised by some of Norway’s evangelical churches, which saw it as disavowing their central missionary role.

Reporter Maddy Savage travels to Norway to hear the stories of some of those who’ve chosen to convert from one of the two faiths to the other; and to ask whether the joint declaration played any role in their life changing decisions.

A new phase in the Covid pandemic

After two-and-a-half years of Covid rampaging across the planet, causing millions of deaths and transforming billions of lives, everyone is keen to move on. But this week the head of the World Health Organization warned the public that the pandemic is “nowhere near over” and that with cases rising 30% over the past fortnight we must collectively “push back”. This assessment comes after many governments have pulled back on testing and removed restrictions such as the requirement to wear masks in certain public spaces. England’s former Deputy Chief Medical Officer says the lethality of Covid-19 is now getting closer to that of the seasonal flu, so how should we adapt to the next phase of the pandemic? Vaccines have prevented many people from getting seriously ill and dying, but only in countries with ready access to jabs and high vaccination rates. The UN estimates roughly 72% of people in high income countries have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, but the figure for low-incomes nations is roughly 18%. How much progress has been made in the fight against Covid-19 and what will the next phase of the pandemic look like?

Biden visits Israeli-occupied West Bank

Many Palestinians are less than impressed with Joe Biden's visit to the Israeli-occupied West Bank as he offers cash rather than political solutions.

Mr Biden is now on his way to Saudi Arabia - a country he once called a pariah state. But, with global oil and gas issues, what does he want from them?

Also in the programme: Drought and extreme heat lower expectations of this year's wheat harvest - except in Russia; and a shortage of seeds is a recipe for disaster for France's famous Dijon mustard.

FRI 20:32 CrowdScience (w3ct3j73)
Are viruses the key to fighting infections?

We are running out of ammunition against certain infections, as bacteria increasingly evade the antibiotics we’ve relied on for nearly a century. Could bacteriophages – viruses that hunt and kill bacteria – be part of the solution?

In 2019, CrowdScience travelled to Georgia where bacteriophages, also known as phages, have been used for nearly a hundred years to treat illnesses ranging from a sore throat to cholera. Here we met the scientists who have kept rare phages safe for decades, and are constantly on the look-out for new ones. Phages are fussy eaters: a specific phage will happily chew on one bacteria but ignore another, so hunting down the right one for each infection is vital.

Since then, we’ve lived through a pandemic, the medical landscape has been transformed, and interest in bacteriophages as a treatment option is growing throughout the world. We turn to microbiologist Professor Martha Clokie for updates, including the answer to listener Garry’s question: could phages help in the fight against Covid-19?
