Find out why

Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Are Pensions Past It?
We’re going to kick off by asking if pensions are past it? Only in three of us bothers to save for our retirement. Why so few? And what are the rest of you going to do? Isn’t your responsibility to take control of your future, even if that means putting your faith in the stock markets? Or do you take the view that future governments are going to order you to work until you die? Pick up the phone and let us know your thoughts on your future?

Then it’s over to Simon for the rest of the day’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papres

Part 5: Do Hard Times Really Make You Stronger?
Then we’re asking if hard times really do make you stronger? Do any of you share my fear that the few good news stories, people like Alan Sugar who’ve gone from rags to riches, obscure the fact that most people don’t come thru unscathed? We’ll hear some more Simon’s experiences and yours of course. Did hard times make you stronger?

Part 6: Do Women Have A Gaydar?
Then: Do women really have a gaydar - an ability to suss a fella’s sexual preference just by looking at him? The Daily mail reckons you girls do! What do you have to say about that I wonder?

Part 7: Talking Telly With Kevin O'sullivan
And finally: I'm going to be talking telly with Sunday Mirror critic Kevin O'Sullivan. We’ll be looking back at Horrible Histories, Mr T’s World’s Craziest Fools, Submarine School, Planet Of The Apemen… and looking forward to Mildred Pierce and Sirens.

    Kevin O'Sullivan is consistently the biggest idiot on tv. He really lowers the class of the Wright Stuff. Self-satisfied, smug and wholly unfunny. How does he have a job? Please remove him from our screens permanently. The rest of the show is superb.

    Why is there always an assumption that men are gay just because of what they look like or what they do.Just because men are nice, it does not make someone gay.Men who like rugby and drinking pints in pubs are more likely to be gay. It makes me really ANGRY. Also why should it matter whether they are gay or not anyway. What about women? Is it easy to tell if they are gay?

    More gay propaganda. "I LOVE THE GAYS" Makes me sick.

    On this programme the Daily Mail is fair game but all other papers are fine!!! This programme is so biased but I still like to hear other views on the topics of the day although I disagree with Mathew on so many points. He is also getting more and more rude and I think more like Jeremy Vile than he would like to think

    "Daily Fail" How original. What do you read, The Grauniad? Or, as I call it, TheCommunist Manifesto.

    As a familoy with a autistic daughter we work hard and still cannot afford luxerys such as holidays etc. We have no extra money to add to a pension and dont want to even think that far ahead, we take each day as it comes.
