Russia's President Vladimir Putin has warned of difficult economic times ahead in his state of the nation address. We analyse whether he can rescue the country's economy. Also the US has contributed more than $100bn in taxpayers' money to the reconstruction of Afghanistan. We ask US Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction John Sopko if the money has been wisely spent. And we hear from the entrepreneurial Italian academic who got so fed up waiting for his local telephone company to connect up his small village near Turin that he went ahead and set up a link of his own.
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).
