Julia Trustram Eve, from English Wine Producers, and Julia Stafford, from The Wine Pantry, join Georgie to discuss all things wine.

Consuming Issues: Can challenger banks break into the UK's banking top four
Challenger banks were hailed as the answer to the UK's troubled banking industry, forcing competition and making existing providers work harder to keep and win customers. These so-called challenger banks are keen to break into the market, to shake it up in a similar manner to the way we've seen small energy firms take on the 'big six' power companies. One of them is POCKIT, and their CEO and Founder, Virraj Jatania, joined Georgie to explain how they can break into the banks' top four.

For many of us, holidays can cost more than we bargained for once you've added in insurance, foreign currency, a hire car and meals out. And so today Sarah Pennells is joined by Brenna Holeman, a travel blogger at This Battered Suitcase, Alex Edwards from price comparison site GoCompare, and David Else from Lonely Planet, to talk about how to make your money go further.
