The United States government is advising its citizens to “strongly consider not going” to more than one-third of Africa.

Also on the programme, the border-crossing Americans taking Mexican football by storm; the former Harvard footballer fighting for gender equality in Brazil; the man behind the steroid scandal that rocked American baseball and the men who make up an unlikely union of cabbies fighting discrimination in Washington DC.

And, we talk about French sweets - so unforgettable that they stir and soothe the soul.
