We hear inspiring stories of hope and survival. From the man who escaped death when he fell to into a mountain crevasse to the wannabe gangster who switched sides to become a police officer. We tackle the subject of boring football commentary and offer a beautiful Brazilian soundtrack for the world cup. If football is not your thing that we have the action hero Modesty Blaise, a British spy who's the female equivalent of James Bond.
