Each week, The Open University and BBC Radio 4 come together to grill the people who run the businesses that shape the world.
For this edition, the focus is on the new economy based on bitcoins, the computer-generated crypto-currency.
What can you buy with them and as the market fluctuates wildly, can investors hold their nerve? The programme will look at how the bitcoin craze began and whether the world really does need another currency. Evan Davis's guests are from new companies hoping to cash in - one trades bitcoins, another stores them and the third enables you to spend them online.
