Episode notes

The Edinburgh Fringe is the latest cultural event to be drawn into a row around funding from companies linked to Israel and fossil fuels. But where other organisers have severed their ties, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society has robustly defended their sponsorship deal with the investment firm Baillie Gifford. Are they right, and is the tide turning against disinvestment?

Plus: a vice-presidential plane crash and woeful weather. Olly Mann and The Week delve behind the headlines and debate what really matters from the past seven days. With Jamie Timson, Mariana Vieira and Leaf Arbuthnot.
