Find out why

Part 1: Hellos & Menu

Parts 2 & 3: Was Rio’s “Choc Ice” Tweet Racist?
For our first phone in: I want to know if you think Rio Ferdinand’s choc ice jibe about Ashley Cole was racist or not? The FA this week charged him with misconduct - choc ice is often used to define someone as being black on the outside and white on the inside, although the Man Utd star claims he used choc ice to describe Cole as a fake. What meaning did you attach to the phrase?

We’ll take plenty of calls on that before it’s over to Kellie for the rest of the day’s headlines.

Part 4: Today’s Papers

Part 5: Underparenting: Do Less, Get More From Kids!
After that: we’ll hear what you make of the latest child-rearing fad that’s known as underparenting: Advocates reckon you do way too much for your kids. Adopt a hands off approach - don’t step in when their fighting, don’t pressure them to take up extra curricular activities, leave them to their own devices - and watch them flourish. Sounds like a charter for lazy parents to me - what about you.

Part 6: Who Gets The Dog After A Split?
After that: who gets the dog when its owners split? R-Patz and his cheating ex Kristen Stewart are wrestling with just such a dilemma now they’re going the separate ways. How do you settle a row like that? Share custody of the dog? Give it away to a third party or something else?

Part 7: Let Touts Fill Olympic Seats!
And finally: Anyone else think we need to scrap the law that makes touting Olympic tickets illegal and let the professionals do what Locog can’t and that’s fill all the empty seats? If people want to pay thru the nose why not eh?
