Fewer people have been protesting in Hong Kong on Friday as a two-day holiday ended and many people went back to work. But there are warnings the demonstrations - particularly if violence continues - will harm Hong Kong's economy, and could threaten its status as a key financial centre. We hear the analysis of Gareth Leather, an Asia specialist, at Capital Economics. Taxi hailing app Uber has been making registered cab drivers unhappy - we speak to Uber's boss. If you like cars, Paris is a pretty good place to be right now. There is a festival for petrolheads, at the Paris Motor Show. More than 270 companies from 20 countries are showing off their latest vehicles. Our reporter Theo Leggett is there and he has been finding out that some of the models on show are rather more exotic than others.
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).
