Turntablist Shiva Feshareki, Nadine Dorries, Climate change

The first female president of Ireland, Mary Robinson, joins the programme to talk about her climate change podcast. Plus MP Nadine Dorries discusses her latest book.

Shiva Feshareki is a British-Iranian experimental composer and turntablist. Her work blends together sounds of classical and dance music. Shiva will be performing at the BBC Proms for the first time, celebrating and representing experimental electronic music.

We meet the presenters of a new podcast celebrating women who are tackling climate change: the first female president of Ireland Mary Robinson and Maeve Higgins, a writer and comedian.

Nadine Dorries is a Conservative MP, but Westminster politics are a far cry from the lives of Rosie and Sarah, the heroines of her new novel., 'Shadows in Heaven'. Nadine joins Jane to discuss her passion for writing about women determined to survive.
