It's been three decades since we last saw Tracey Ullman on British screens but she's back this week with a new sketch show on BBC1. She tells Jane what we can expect and why Angela Merkel is one of her latest fascinations. Shami Chakrabarti talks about her decision to step down as Director of the civil rights organisation Liberty. Three people share their experiences of what it's like to be bisexual: Holly Matthies, Daniel Howell and Libby Baxter-Williams. We hear from Bee Wilson about her new book, First Bite How We Learn to Eat and they discuss whether fussy eaters are born or created and why so many of us are obsessed with sugar. The former cycle courier Emily Chappell tells us about her life on the road and how the stop gap job turned into a passion and way of life. Can we and should we try and pass our music taste down to our kids? Music journalists Jude Rogers and Mark Sutherland discuss. And we Cook the Perfect...Vegan Quesadilla with Aine Carlin. Presented by Jane Garvey Producer: Rabeka Nurmahomed.
