Russell Brand and Jo Brand; Wall Street review.

Listen in pop-out player

The second instalment of Russell Brand's autobiography, Booky Wook 2, charts the comedian's rise from crack addict to Hollywood star. He discusses overcoming his addictions to sex and drugs, meeting his fiance - the singer Katy Perry - and the infamous voicemails he left for Andrew Sachs.

Michael Douglas returns to his Oscar-winning role as the financial titan Gordon Gekko. Ruth Lea, former chief UK economist for Lehman Brothers, reviews the sequel to Wall Street, and considers how both Gekko and the financial world have changed since 1987, when the original film was released.

Comedian Jo Brand discusses her new memoir Can't Stand Up for Sitting Down, and examines how to construct the perfect joke.
