This is Money: Brave New World
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, brought to you in partnership with NS&I. It’s the start of a new era as Donald Trump is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. Meanwhile across the pond Theresa May swore out of Europe spelling out her 12 point plan for leaving. What of the impact on the pound in your pocket though? It’s rapidly devaluing on the back of uncertainty whilst rising inflation threatens to strip its spending power further, especially if saved in one of Britain’s worst accounts. To add to the misery there’s also a warning from Mark Carney we may be storing up problems overspending and racking up debt. To make sense of all these financial woes current and future Georgie Frost is joined by Editor Simon Lambert and Personal Finance Editor Rachel Rickard Straus. They also discuss how to solve some of the biggest money rip-offs and financial wrongs whilst Simon takes on a new road tax which could see a small hatchback being charged the same as a 5.0 litre Mustang. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.

Are the Lib Dems now the only opposition to Theresa May's Brexit plan?
The Liberal Democrat leader, Tim Farron, has accused Jeremy Corbyn of "lamely giving up" while Britain "drives off a cliff" by activating article 50. This may leave the Lib Dems as the only mainstream political party that is opposing Theresa May's Brexit plans. For more on Farron's comments, Share Radio's Ed Bowsher is joined on the line by Asa Bennett, Assistant Comment Editor at the Telegraph.

This is Money: What Goes Up...
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, brought to you in partnership with NS&I. This week we ask just how high the FTSE could go in 2017. With the New Year bull run still in full swing is now the time to invest or could the current record be too good to be true? Meanwhile the FTSE might be rising but the pound continues to slump to its lowest levels since the 2008 crisis. Good news for exporters at least whilst even Mark Carney’s admitting Brexit won’t be quite as bad for the country. So just where does all this leave the devaluing pound in your pocket? To find out Georgie Frost is joined by Editor Simon Lambert and Personal Finance Editor Rachel Rickard Straus. Also on this week’s agenda they look at the latest retail figures, Halifax’s statistics on first time buyers and the new powers allowing the tax man to spy on your online activity. This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.

This Really is Money: Look on the Brightside
Welcome to the This is Money and Share Radio podcast, brought to you in partnership with NS&I. After a year of doom and gloom stories this week we’re looking at the positives. Despite the Michael Fish style forecasting of the post-Brexit economy the FTSE is surging to unprecedented levels, could this be the time to start investing? For those less keen on the cut and thrust of the stock market a glimmer of hope for savings rates does seem to be on the horizon in 2017 as we look through some of the accounts paying up to 5%. Georgie Frost is joined by Editor Simon Lambert who gives his wish list of headlines for the next year whilst Consumer Affairs Editor Lee Boyce takes centre stage on everything coin related. But just how well will their financial knowledge stack up in our Podcast Quiz of the Year? This is Money is presented by Georgie Frost in partnership with NS&I.

2016: the year of Brexit - part 2
2016 will always be remembered as the year of Brexit, even though formal negotiations to navigate our way out of the bloc are yet to begin, and doubts are still being raised about the date of March 31st 2017, when Article 50 is due to be triggered. But 2016 was the year when the vote that would change the course of British history was announced, carried out and revealed. Yesterday we looked at the build up to the vote on June 23rd. Today, we head back to the day of Friday June 24th - the day that changed British politics forever. Share Radio's Joe Aldridge reports.
