Roger Bolton speaks to two listeners with opposing views of The Archers and we hear from VICE UK Executive Editor Sam Wolfson about declining Radio 1 listener figures.

Roger Bolton speaks to two listeners with opposing views on The Archers and we speak to Sam Wolfson about declining Radio 1 listener figures.

Following the release of the latest RAJAR figures, which measures radio listening habits, Nick Grimshaw's Radio 1 breakfast show has seen the lowest reach since RAJAR records began. We speak to the network's target audience at a college in Warrington to find out how they are now listening to audio and Sam Wolfson, Executive Editor of VICE UK explains why those figures have dipped.

And The Archers continues to attract new audiences with its dramatic twists and turns. But some listeners say the programme has gone too far. We hear from two Archers fans on opposing sides of the argument.

Well, so, like, you know what I mean...? Sociolinguist Heike Pichler makes a return visit to Feedback to respond to listener comments on the various uses of 'so' and to explain the meaning behind some of Roger's most irritating verbal tics.

And radio that changes lives. We hear from listener Nicola Watson about an episode of 'You and Yours' that gave her the confidence she needed to return to the workforce.

Producer: Kate Dixon
A Whistledown Production for BBC Radio 4.
