Following the past few turbulent weeks on stock markets, the launch of a new training course called ‘Investing Basics’ by the UK society for individual shareowners 'ShareSoc' comes at a good time.

This Is Money: Rishi the PM vs Rishi the Chancellor and how can landlords do better?
The tense situation between tenants and landlords is escalating: the former have seen rents spiral but the latter have faced a big jump in costs jump too. Meanwhile regulation has become a bugbear between the two sides, is there not enough of it or too much? What can be done to improve things in the rental market and have we come down too hard on buy-to-let? That’s the question asked on this week’s episode, as Georgie Frost, Helen Crane and Simon Lambert debate the problems in the rental market. But before that, it’s time for Rishi Sunak. He was once the Chancellor tasked with calming our nerves during the pandemic, but now Rishi is the Prime Minister expected to settle things down after a bout of financial chaos. Will he be able to pull that off, soothe jittery markets, navigate Britain through a painful cost of living crisis winter, and somehow please the nation while taking money off people instead of dishing it out? The team look at what Prime Minister Rishi could mean compared to Chancellor Rishi – and what the implications for our finances could be. Also on the agenda, there was good news for savers from NS&I this week, as rates were raised across the board, but they can get better deals elsewhere, so what should they do? Plus, what can you do to track down old pension pots and why is John Lewis annoying its loyal credit card customers?

The Hypnotist: The Bitcoin Billionaire Rollercoaster
For those searching for a long-term investment perspective risk and volatility are big issues: and there's no better example of that rollercoaster ride than crypto-currencies. Adam Cox has chosen to focus this episode on Bitcoin due to its reputation for major swings in value — but it applies just as well to major asset sectors such as property and stocks. The fact is that cash left on deposit at a time of high inflation erodes real value just like a leaky bath: so it's important to come to terms with asset risk and not to suffer 'analysis paralysis'. Adam's time machine and rollercoaster analogy might help.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Has normality returned to markets & are bonds worthwhile again?
Laith Khalaf of A J Bell tells Simon Rose that, to a large extent, normality has been restored to financial markets since Rishi Sunak becamse Prime Minister. Although the Autumn Statement has been delayed to November 17, the markets appear not be too concerned. Laith explains what the markets are expecting when the MPC meets next week and advises investors to keep an eye on bonds, which – although not beating inflation – are considerably more interesting than a year ago.

The Business of FIlm: Black Adam, The Banshees of Inisherin & Triangle of Sadness
James Cameron-Wilson looks at a UK box office that still appears in less than robust health, despite the arrival at #1 of Black Adam, starring Dwayne Johnson. This DC comic spin-off, however, James found plodding and lacking in humour. He was more enthusiastic about #2, Martin McDonagh's The Banshees of Inisherin, reuniting Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson from McDonagh's earlier film In Bruges. With Emily and The Last King dropping out of the top ten, James advises people to look out for Swedish Palme D'Or winner Triangle of Sadness.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Flying cars, solving leaves on the line & hearing the Earth's magnetic field
Steve Caplin tells Simon Rose about a flying car that you can now order, although as a car it might prove somewhat lacking. He celebrates 21 years of the iPod, marvels at a couple of Lenovo prototypes, discusses the deadline to use up old-fashioned stamps, plays a recording of what the Earth's magnetic field might sound like, wonders why it's taken until the production of the Sand Rover to solve the problem of leaves on the line and explains how the first piece of land has just been bought using an non-fungible token.
