We try to find out why shares of mining giant Glencore have been experiencing volatility. Investigative journalist Ken Silverstein, of Vice Magazine and Byline fills us in. And we assess the impact of Glencore's decision to shut down mines at some African sites, with analysis from Africa Confidential's Andrew Weir. Also in the programme, Jamaica wants Britain to pay up for its role in the slave trade. We ask if there is an economic case for compensation. Plus we talk to Josh Israel, founder of a startup hoping to capitalise on India's dating scene.
