Donald Trump's tweets today have confirmed he will 'build the wall' with Mexico and investigate alleged voter fraud. Does this mean action soon or is it just self-promotion? Sanford Henry, US political commentator, spoke to Ed Bowsher on the Trump presidency to date.
Theresa May faced her first Question Time grilling following the Brexit ruling and she confirmed there will be a white paper on negotiation priorities. The move comes despite May's insistence her initial speech was enough. John Ashmore, chief reporter at Politics Home covered this and today's Question Time with Share Radio's Ed Bowsher.
Theresa May is currently in the unenviable position of simultaneously having to negotiate trade deals with Europe to the East, and the US to the West. And as with all British business leaders trying to build their US sales and presence, the Prime Minister must ensure she is in sync with the American businessman leading the country. Allyson Stewart-Allen is the Director at International Marketing Partners, and she joined Nigel Cassidy on Share Radio Breakfast to offer her views on the approach May should take.
Parliament must have a vote ahead of Brexit, according to the Supreme Court ruling, but is there anything that can block it? And why did the government appeal the initial ruling?
John Rentoul, chief political commentator at The Independent, talks through the political ramifications of the decision with Share Radio's Ed Bowsher.
The verdict is in: parliament must vote before Article 50 can be triggered and Brexit, officially, begins. Greg Callus, Barrister at 5RB, gives a legal view on the Supreme Court's decision with Share Radio's senior analyst, Ed Bowsher.
The European Central Bank will continue its quantitative easing bond-buying programme into 2018, according to ratings agency, S&P. The agency says the ECB will need to do this to combat low core inflation and credit growth.
Share Radio's Ed Bowsher was joined by Claus Vistesen, macroeconomist for Pantheon Macroeconomics who focusses on the Eurozone, to explore the issue.
A new 10-point industrial strategy has been unveiled by Theresa May - but will it deliver for businesses as the economy readies itself for Brexit hurdles?

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.
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.
It's Theresa May's big moment. The Prime Minister will warn world leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos that they must listen to those who feel left behind by globalisation. Steve Clarke was at the “magic mountain”, and he brought us the latest from the Swiss ski resort.
