On our latest Magazine Review, we looked at some of the stories dominating the pages of the country's leading business magazines, including Hammond's plan to rise national insurance for the self-employed, and the OBR confirming the weak growth of the UK economy. This much more with Hazel Sheffield, Freelance Multimedia Journalist, and Nick Britton, Head of Training at the Association of Investment Companies.
Regular listeners to the show will know that our Apprentices are four members of the Share Radio team who've each been given fifteen thousand pounds of virtual money to build their own share portfolios.

Today Share Radio's Simon Rose was joined in the studio by Apprentices Matt Cox and Valsa de Winter. Standing by with advice and useful observations was Share Radio's sparkling Senior Analyst Ed Bowsher.

Donald Trump has praised Britain for its decision to leave the European Union in an interview with Tory MP Michael Gove in The Times today. Trump also said he would sign a trade deal with the UK post-Brexit.
But given the president-elect's more protectionist stance on trade, what will this mean for future dealings?
John Curtice, Professor of Politics at Strathclyde University, talks through this and more with Share Radio's senior analyst Ed Bowsher.
This is the Weeks Update - our catch-up with Share Radio's economic commentator Professor John Weeks.
Inaugurations mark new chapters in American politics. When a would-be president steps up to take the Oath of Office, the entire country is meant to step up with them. Wounds of the campaign season should be healed, while attention turns to the road ahead. It's perhaps unprecedented though, for a ceremony to be shadowed by fears that the road may have been chosen by a foreign power. Donald Trump begins his presidency amidst allegations from all of America's intelligence agencies of Russian electoral inference. And yet it was only last week that Trump budged on continued scepticism of the US intelligence community's conclusions.
Should the intelligence community - both in the US and here in the UK - be nervous about the new President's arrival? And what exactly does Russia want?
As well as Professor Weeks, Share Radio's Simon Rose was joined by Sir David Omand, a former head of GCHQ, now visiting professor at King's College, London and a former UK Intelligence and Security Coordinator.
