Women and Money: ISAs galore
Do you have a cash ISA? Government figures show that cash ISAs are one financial product that's more popular among women than men. These savings accounts pay interest without tax taken off - and, although a bit of the gloss has been taken off them in the last year or so because of tax changes to savings and low interest rates, many women still have them. And from April there will be a new ISA - a LISA or lifetime ISA. Sarah Pennells was joined by Helen Saxon, chief product analyst at Money Saving Expert, Harry Rose, editor of Which? Money and by Claire Walsh, who's head of advice at Unbiased.

Would you accept a day off from work...if you're tired?
It's safe to say that many of us would love the luxury of a day off work every now and then. But how would you feel if your employer offered you a wellbeing day, effectively allowing you to call in sick...with tiredness? This is a measure being proposed by think tank, the Institute of Public Policy Research, or IPPR, who believe employers should be looking more into their employee's wellbeing. Share Radio's Sara Macham spoke to Joe Dromey, one of the authors of the report, about how this would reduce the number of people receiving long-term sickness benefit.
