Nothing Compares to Irish singer songwriter Sinéad O'Connor, who shot to international fame in 1990 with Prince's smash hit 'Nothing Compares 2 U'. Sinéad talks to Clive about her career, which has occasionally encountered controversy as a result of her strong views on religion, feminism, child abuse and war. Sinéad performs 'V.I.P' from her album 'How About I Be Me (And You Be You)'.

Clive doesn't miss a beat with legendary 'Cream' and 'Blind Faith' drummer and hippy hellraiser Ginger Baker. A new film by Jay Bulger documents Ginger's life, from being influenced by London's jazz scene to the height of his drug-addled rock band fame. Ginger smashes his drums like he smashes through life, even smashing the filmmaker's nose on the last day of filming! 'Beware Of Mr Baker' is released in UK cinemas on Friday 17th May.

Nikki Bedi has Veg Talk with New York comedian Jamie Kilstein. Known for his intelligent, no-holds-barred take on religion, politics, corporate greed and veganism, Jamie's consistently been compared by critics, comedians and audiences to fearless comic icons Bill Hicks and George Carlin. He's on tour throughout February and is performing at London's Soho Theatre until Saturday 23rd.

Clive's on the couch with psychologist, author and broadcaster Oliver James, whose new book 'Office Politics: How to Thrive in a World of Lying, Backstabbing and Dirty Tricks' examines the modern working world, where game-playing, duplicity and sheer malevolence are rife. Oliver examines the not-so-nice practices which propel people to the top, revealing the murky side to office life.

Plus more music from Irish indie folk band Villagers, who perform 'Nothing Arrived' from their album 'Awayland'.
