But what will it take to wake the world's third largest economy from its 20 year sleep? Much of Belgium has ground to a halt, with strikes and demonstrations against government austerity plans. We talk to businesses affected by the disruptions. Also in the programme, the challenges of rebuilding the fishing industry in southern India, ten years after a devastating tsunami. Plus, we ask whether western governments are helping fund animal cruelty. And our regular commentator Lucy Kellaway of the Financial Times considers whether fearlessness could be bad for us.
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).
