In Washington, Elizabeth Nolan Brown talks of her work as staff editor of Reason, the magazine of the libertarian think tank of the same name; in Singapore, David Kuo of the financial website, The Motley Fool, talks drugs and pornography. The Interior Minister of Guatemala takes us through his new anti-drugs initiative and Claudette Juska of Greenpeace explains 'greenwash' and why planting a tree does not absolve corporations of their environmental sins. Plus, a buzzing Alice Budisatrijo joins us from a coffee conference in Jakarta, where the locals are developing a taste for their own produce.
