This is Money: The future of the British pound
Welcome to the This is Money with Georgie Frost, Editor Simon Lambert and assistant editor Lee Boyce Coming up on this week’s show…the pound.

The team look at what lies behind the decline, indeed why it’s fallen so much when jobs, wages and inflation aren’t doing badly, and what this means for interest rates and for the pound in your pocket.

This is Moneyball: European Hockey Championships
Welcome to This is MoneyBall, the podcast about what happens off the pitch. 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?

Money is important; there’s no question about it, it gives us economic power – particularly if you’re in a relationship or job that you hate. Financial Times Money Mentor Lindsay Cook, and Lyndsay Wolfe, a Financial Planner from Wolfe Financial Planning, join Esther Mukuro to discuss why it is important to talk about money and how to get the money conversation started.

This is Money: Inheritance Tax is the most hated of all taxes – should it be overhauled?
It's official: IHT is the country's most hated tax. That's according to the Office of Tax Simplification, who have been looking into the quirks of the system at the request of the Chancellor. What needs to change – and could a Labour plan, bubbling away in the background, really be the answer? Editor Simon Lambert, assistant editor Lee Boyce and host Georgie Frost take a look. Whatever happens with IHT, most want to leave as much of their wealth as possible to loved ones when they pass away – so just how do you do it and how many bend the rules? Elsewhere, we update on what's going on at Deutsche Bank as thousands of jobs across the globe are axed. Eon goes green and says millions of its customers will now receive 100 per cent renewable electricity – but what does that mean? And on the topic of green, we have details of the first all-electric Mini – how much will it cost, what is its range and most importantly... is it any good?
