Zoe Ball sits in for Chris and, on the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech, she talks to veteran journalist John Sergeant who witnessed the famous event first-hand.

With news that Brits are now hitting middle age at 53 - 12 years later than we used to - listeners share their signs of hitting this milestone, from a penchant for naps, to a love of hanging baskets!

We also have yak facts from Zoe's friend Wendy Wow, goldfish tips, and (rather food focused) suggestions for a team sporting challenge!
