The latest set of RAJAR radio listening figures were released this week. There was a big fall in the number of people tuning in to Radio 4's Today. We hear from disgruntled listeners about why they've stopped listening and former Editor of Today and Controller of 5Live, Roger Mosey, discusses whether the corporation should be worried.

Radio 1 caused a social media storm last week by first trailing - and then cancelling - an interview with the controversial YouTube vlogger Logan Paul. The online star had been invited for an interview with Charlie Sloth despite making headlines earlier this year when he made a video that many felt made light of suicide. Listeners explain why they were angry about the interview and respond to Radio 1's explanation for cancelling it.

Natalie Haynes Stands up for the Classics is perhaps the model of an unlikely hit - a self-described ex-comedian looking for humorous ways to explore the lives of figures from ancient history. Feedback listeners seem to love it, so Natalie joins Roger Bolton to answer their questions and reveal the origin of her obsession with Classics.

Producer: Will Yates
A Whistledown production for BBC Radio 4.
