There comes a point, usually in the dead of winter, when one is forced to look further afield for one's listening, preferably to a place where the presenters don't sound as though they have lost the will to live or, conversely, as if they are trying to batter you to death with their joie de vivre.

Wednesday 27 November 2013
This week we discussed Tory modernisation, asked if the Guardian should face prosecution over the Snowden leaks, and wondered whether it matters if Ed Miliband doesn’t go to the pub. We were joined in the studio by broadcaster Sam Delaney, Ruth Porter of the IEA, and down the line by former MP Louise Mensch, Index on Censorship’s Michael Harris, and Bloomberg’s Rob Hutton.

It's official: the gender imbalance is on radio is real, and it's a problem. Of course, for those of us in possession of both ears and ovaries, this is hardly breaking news. But for the benefit of all the knuckle-dragging nitwits who like their ironing done by someone else and who say we should stop whining because we have Radio 4's Woman's Hour – a whole hour! Every day! Entirely to ourselves! – it's now here in black and white.
