German press reports suggest Berlin thinks Europe could cope without Greece in the euro. Ahead of Greece's general election later this month, we ask how likely a 'Grexit' is, and assess its implications with Andreas Andreanopolos, a former Greek development minister, and the noted British economist Roger Bootle. Plus we hear about life as an immigrant in Long Island, New York. And, do lean, fit leaders make for lean, fit companies? Our regular commentator Lucy Kellaway ponders whether gym bunnies make good bosses. Also in the programme, Marilyn Monroe has been revealed as the new face of Max Factor. We hear from Lorna Hawtin of the advertising agency TBWA how dead icons can be an advertiser's best friend.
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.
