On Wednesday's Backchat, we talk about U.S. politics. What does the Mueller report imply for Trump and his administration? Is it a vindication for the President, with no sign of conspiracy or collusion, and was the whole expensive investigation a witch hunt intended to undermine the Executive? The report though did not draw a conclusion, one way or another as to whether there was obstruction. What do you
think? What has the whole report shown and who should see the unredacted version? Is the President in a stronger or weaker position now, or has
nothing actually changed? Should the Democrats seek to impeach, or would that be a charge too far? After 9.20, thoughts after the mass bombings
in Sri Lanka.

Crude oil continued its advance in Asian trading early Tuesday, with Brent climbing another 30-40 cents to $74.38 a barrel, after settling at six-month highs on Monday in response to the decision by the Trump Administration to end Iran sanctions waivers from next month. The stronger oil price sent energy stocks to their biggest one-day rise since January on Wall Street Monday. Asian energy stocks rose in tandem Tuesday with the sector rising 0.7% in Hong Kong and 2% in Sydney.
On Wednesday’s Money Talk, we’re joined by Tariq Dennison, Portfolio Manager at GFM Asset Management, Hannah Anderson, Global Market Strategist from JP Morgan Asset Management and on the phone from Washington D.C., RTHK’s International Economics Correspondent, Barry Wood.
This coming Saturday afternoon at 12.05, join us for some Good Ol' Country. For the first time in nearly 20 years Radio 3 brings you the best in real-deal American country music. We’re very excited to welcome its host too, who apart from being one quarter of the amazing Metro Vocal Group, has lived and breathed country music since he was small. Michael Lance was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, and raised on beef, corn, and potatoes. At a young age, he travelled North America in his family’s Country and Western band, and developed a love for those great story driven songs sung by some of the greatest story tellers of all time. Music has always been in his blood, literally, and he hopes his selection will make you stand up, find a partner, and dance the two-step to some....Good Ol' Country.
