    Tackling over-tourism in Greece

    Tackling over-tourism in Greece

    Victoria Craig whisks us off to the Greek island of Tinos to find out about a Greek government strategy to prevent over-tourism.

    On this virtual vacation, you'll meet an artisan cheesemaker, some travellers, and a restaurant owner to find out whether the government strategy to promote travel to less well known destinations is working, or even welcomed. There are concerns the strategy could erode traditional ways of life on the Greek islands and in the Greek villages tourists don't often reach.

    The electric transport revolution

    The electric transport revolution

    New forms of electric transport are revolutionising the way we travel for both work and leisure.

    Soaring gas prices around the world are encouraging people to look for alternatives such as electric bikes, kick scooters and mopeds.

    Tara Holmes visits a new bike shop in the Peak District in England, and speaks to husband and wife team, Richard and Madeline Bowker, owners of Criterium Cycles, and gets the chance to try out one of their best-selling e-bikes. The global market for e-bikes today is worth $35billion.

    From there, Tara travels to Nottingham to try out an electric kick scooter for the first time on a public road. She also speaks to Kfir Ben Shooshan, founder of Inokim, an e-scooter company based in Tel Aviv in Israel.

    We also hear from people who believe the shift to electrification is happening too fast with safety concerns being ignored. Nikhil Inamdar reports from Delhi in India where two people from the same family died following a scooter battery explosion.

    Professor David Greenwood, an electrification expert at Warwick University in the UK, offers some tips on how to avoid buying unsafe vehicles.

    And, Augustin Friedel, an independent analyst and mobility expert from Germany reveals which countries are most encouraging new forms of electric transport and how this is being done safely.

    Subscribe and fly: the travel industry’s latest trend

    Travel isn't easy anymore. Between the cancelled flights, lost baggage and just the cost of it all, it's almost enough to turn people off altogether. But we'll hear how travel companies are using subscription services to keep those travellers travelling.

    Leanna Byrne speaks to airline bosses Neil Thwaites, regional vice-president for California at Alaska Airlines and Kirby Gordon from FlySafair about how their subscription services are boosting business.

    We also hear from Iñaki Uriz, the chief executive of Caravelo, a subscription platform for the airline industry on travel trends.

    And finally, as some the biggest users of subscriptions services are millennials and gen Z, we speak to someone who calls themselves a "digital nomad".

    The fight for digital privacy

    A new breed of tech firms is aiming to revolutionise consumer rights online – making us invisible to advertisers unless they pay us for our data.

    Presenter Ed Butler visits London-based start up Gener8 and speaks to founder Sam Jones. Sam explains how digital marketing works – and what individuals can do to prevent information being collected – or make money from it.

    We also hear from Brendan Eich, co-founder and CEO of US firm Brave, it’s promoting a similar “earn while you browse” model. And it has 25 million active monthly users.

    And, Ed asks, if everyone increases their privacy, what will that do to the modern digital economy?

Very interesting

Always love listening to the individual episodes. Interesting, innovative, and diverse topics.

Is that really necessary?

I love the episodes about female entrepreneurs and empowerment, but I never expected the BBC to make commercial for „passive income YouTube gurus“. There was absolutely nothing to learn from the episode on Sharon Tseung - guess we have to buy her online courses to find out how she did it ..
