Women and Money
In 1966, Barclays sent out over a million credit cards to customers. And so began a revolution in the way we shop and pay for goods. None of the customers had asked for these cards - and it was an entirely new product in the UK. Many of those who received these credit cards were women, and it meant that women could get credit without having to get a man to sign for it or act as a guarantor. Sarah Pennells and her guests discuss how credit cards have changed over the past 50 years and look at current rates and deals available.
Guests:

Maria Sienkiewicz, Liz Hodgkinson, Jane Clack, Tashema Jackson, Alastair Douglas

Women and Money: A Career in Science and Tech
We all know that there aren't enough women taking up careers in science and technology, often referred to as STEM. But what's being done to improve this and what kind of jobs are available, if it's an area you're interested in? Sarah Pennells is joined in the studio by Benita Mehra, President of Women in Engineering Society, who explains why so few women go into engineering. Anne-Marie Imafidon, Co-founder of Stemette, and Stella Tournier, WISE member STEM Role Model, discuss whether girls are not encouraged enough to take engineering or science subjects at school (or are they not interested?). Meanwhile Sophie Graham, National Careers Service Adviser, looks at the academic route into engineering or science if you decide you want to come to it later in life.

Women and Money: Subscription Boxes
An increasing number of people are signing up for subscription boxes - paying a monthly fee for a whole range of things to be delivered to their door. But, are they good value or just a waste of money? Sarah Pennells is joined by Sue Hayward, a consumer expert, who explains the idea behind subscription boxes. Emma Saitch, from Birchbox, and Ian White, from Love Lula, tell Sarah how one can tailor what's in their subscription box, while Alice Hughes, blogger and journalist, looks at beauty boxes and the products that go unused. Alun Johns, from Pomora, explains what people get by subscribing and what they wouldn't get in the shops.
