Share Radio Interview with Vicky Sayers

The Share Radio Interview: The Internet of Things
We’re becoming increasingly reliant on technology of all kinds, divulging more and more of our most personal details online and on internet-connected devices. But are we investing in suitable safeguarding measures to protect ourselves against hacking? Well, apparently not. Research from cyber-security experts, nCipher Security, has revealed that as more and more things become connected to the internet – from wireless home sensor networks, to smartphones, to wearable tech – we’re leaving ourselves wide open to cyber-attacks. In this episode of the Share Interview, Vice President of Global Distribution from nCipher Security, Peter Carlisle, joins Vicky Sayers to offer his advice.

NEF: The Rent is Too High
More and more of us are renting for longer – not by choice, but by necessity. In cities especially, more people are renting into their thirties, forties and beyond, sometimes raising children in rented flats with no long-term security. Rents are sky high. Saving for a deposit can take a decade or longer. And for many people, property ownership seems unachievable. But what if we could do something about it? Could rent controls be the answer? To help answer this question, Ayeisha Thomas-Smith is joined by Hanna Wheatley, researcher at the New Economics Foundation and co-author of a NEF report on rent controls, and Eva Freeman, private renter and member of the London Renters Union.

This is Money: Motoring special - Buying electric cars and are insurers gaming drivers?
What’s the best new or used electric car on the market, would buying your insurance on the day you need it drive up the price, and does London’s diesel-crunching ULEZ make sense? Those are the questions and more on this motoring special edition of the This is Money Podcast. On it, Georgie Frost and Simon Lambert are joined by deputy motoring editor Rob Hull to talk cars and money. First up, is our exclusive on how insurers are sneakily pushing up prices for those who buy cover close to when they need it - bad news if you want to choose and buy a car and then drive it away. The team also look at attempts to crack down on older petrol and diesel cars, such as London’s ULEZ. Simon argues that one of the key problems is not how good new electric cars are (albeit they are now pretty good) but the issue of buying second hand and the limited choice and consumer concerns. Meanwhile, Rob says that although a brand new electric car may be tempting to those committed to greener motoring, many buyers are likely to sit on their hands expecting a better choice of longer range vehicles to arrive soon.
