On the show this week, we're taking a look back at the very best of our weekly financial analysis and commentary, in partnership with NS&I, over the past few months. And what a few months it has been! From Brexit to the Bank of England rate cuts, and don’t forget the BHS and Sports Direct scandals. We’re going to take you back, and get some perspective on it all. Maybe it will start to make sense... We'll also be looking at the major takeover of Britain’s own ARM holdings, a much-loved current account getting its rates slashed, and the best and worst of Great British Auto Manufacturing.

Once again, it's time for the This is Money podcast. Every week, in partnership with NS&I, Financial Broadcaster of the Year Georgie Frost and Financial Website of the Year This is Money team up to go through all the finance stories you need to know this week. Georgie is joined in the studio by Editor Simon Lambert and Personal Finance Editor Rachel Rickard-Strauss. We’re going to be talking about the latest CMA report- could we be seeing a range of new apps to make choosing and switching bank accounts easier? And on top of that, the Bank of England cut in interest rates has caused a number of impacts since last week with some good news for first time house buyers but more worrying for savers, we’ll be looking at the effects on mortgages and pensions. Meanwhile the Bank of England has said it wants to encourage investors to take 'more risk'. So how can you make money in this post-Brexit Britain without gambling your nest egg away? And finally we’ll be tackling the perennial topic of inheritance tax. This is Money is presented by George Frost, in partnership with NS&I.

Time again for This is Money, Financial Broadcaster of the Year Georgie Frost and Financial Website of the Year This is Money team up with NS&I to close off a turbulent week, with the best of financial advice and analysis. Yes, it has been a turbulent week, with Natwest veering towards negative rates, Santander rolling back the UK's most popular current account, and Lloyds scrapping more of their workforce. Can savers find their way through it all? Well, we'd better hope so, as the issue this week most pressing is the FCA's findings that over 5 million credit cards may never be paid off, and around 1.4 million people are barely making any repayments at all. In short, we're drowning in plastic. But the first step is educating ourselves, and this podcast is the place to start!
