The Bigger Picture: Free speech, Toby Young & unions, Dominic Cummings & The Budget and the YIMBY movement

The Business of Film: The Call of the Wild

Greed, with Steve Coogan – we're assured – NOT playing Sir Philip Green is Jame's favourite new film but only makes it to #11. His home release of the week is Sons of Denmark.

This is Money: NS&I and Marcus Bank cut rates - what's the point of saving?
This week, savings have been in the spotlight with National Savings and Investments cutting rates on a number of its offerings, including popular Premium Bonds. Both Marcus Bank and Saga also cut easy-access rates. On this week's podcast, Simon Lambert, Lee Boyce and Georgie Frost look at what's behind the cuts and question: should savers head elsewhere, and what is the point of tucking money away for little interest? Nationwide Building Society has launched a Start to Save easy-access account with a £100 lottery – is it any good and can it help get people into the savings habit? We cover a curious case of one reader who found their Spotify infiltrated by someone with appalling music taste. Simon reveals how he was stung by the loyalty penalty when a renewal letter came through from his insurer Halifax. It hiked his premium, but after weeks of back-and-forth, couldn't give him a concrete reason as to why. And Lee looks at whether a Fitbit is worth the money and how a fitness tracker helped his mum, with an underlying health condition, become healthier.
