Saving, spending, planning — you've got money questions and we've got answers.

In this week's show, Bro interviews financial-planning expert Wade Pfau about the assumptions underlying the 4% safe withdrawal rate in retirement, and whether they’re still valid. And Alison discusses whether an elite college degree is worth the price.

The Bigger Picture: Who is to blame for the Brexit mess?
With just a week to go until Britain COULD leave the EU, political commentator Mike Indian asks who's to blame for the Brexit mess. While asking for an extension to the leaving date, Theresa May has put up the hackles of many MPs with her latest address. He also looks at what's happened to collective responsibility, the Speaker's ability to pick and choose which precedents he invokes and why Jeremy Corbyn walked out of a meeting with the PM because Chuka Umunna was present.

James Cameron-Wilson looks at the box office phenomenon that is Captain Marvel, taking nearly £13m in its first weekend and disproving, as with Wonder Woman, the traditional Hollywood studio view that films with female leads do not succeed with the general public. With no other new film making the top ten (Everybody Knows with Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz made only #13), James's DVD of the week was Sink The Bismarck, the 1960 film starring Kenneth More.
