The owner of the Rana Plaza factory complex has been charged with murder. We hear from the BBC's Akbar Hossein in Bangladesh, and discuss the issues with Sam Mayer, from the campaign group "Labour Behind the Label", which has been campaigning on behalf of Bangladeshi garment workers. Also in the programme, the tale of the $200,000 Apple 1 computer, which was thrown away - and recovered by garbage men. Robert Dowell at the National Museum of Computing at Bletchley Park here in the UK tells us why the computer is so valuable. Plus our regular commentator Lucy Kellaway launches a campaign against the phenomenon of "humble-bragging" on social media.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends. </div><div><br></div><div>An independent podcast from James Barr (@imjamesbarr) and Dan Hudson (@DanHudson).
