55. LIVING FOR THE (THREE DAY) WEEKEND
Hello! How often do you get back to work after the weekend feeling like it wasn't long enough?

Andrew Barnes, Founder of Perpetual Guadian, the company undertaking the trial, and Kate Bell from the TUC join us to talk about how realistic it is that a 4-day working week could possibly allow a company to continue paying a full wage.
Comedian Matthew Crosby revolutionises present giving, encourages teaching children to swear, gets rid of those "seen"/"read" notices and gets in a bus with Ed and Geoff to stop people arguing.
