Saving, spending, planning — you've got money questions and we've got answers. Every week host Alison Southwick and personal finance expert Robert Brokamp challenge the conventional wisdom on life's biggest financial issues to reveal what you really need to know to make smart money moves. In this week's show, most of us have only a vague idea of how much we should be saving. Jeannie Thompson, Head of Workplace Solutions Thought Leadership at Fidelity Investments, explains the company’s age-based savings guidelines, the cost of health care in retirement, and how retirement planning can present more challenges for women.
It's fair to say environmental issues have moved to the forefront of the agenda in recent times. This week, editor Simon Lambert, assistant editor Lee Boyce and host Georgie Frost take a look at potential changes you can make to help the pound in your pocket turn a little greener. Simon explains his rallying cry for us to be his acronym 'Layby' rather than being labelled 'Nimbys'. Layby – or look after your back yard – is a movement to look after the country we live in. When it comes to investing, there is a growing movement where savers who want to combat climate change invest a small amount of money in the very companies eco-activists traditionally rally against, such as fossil fuel giants Shell and BP – so why? What can you do to be a more eco-friendly tourist? And finally… it's hard enough trying to predict how rapidly a normal car will depreciate, but estimating the loss of value of an electric vehicle is a whole other ball game. We reveal all.

Bruised and battered by Brexit, it took another blow last week with some gloomy news about the UK economy.
But with a no-deal potentially in the offing, how much more of a pounding will sterling take?

As it’s the European Championships this week, Georgie Frost and Lee Boyce go back to school – and talk about hockey.
On last week's episode, the pair explored one year to the Tokyo Olympics from the boxing perspective. The view from Team GB hockey, however, is somewhat different: saved from a position of bankruptcy to being recognised as one of the best-run governing bodies in British sport. Could other sports take a lesson from hockey?
Plus, what is it like to be a pro in a marginal sport, not awash with cash? And how hard is it to switch countries that you represent?
