National Savings and Investments has launched Ernie 5.0 – its fifth generation machine that draws the Premium Bond numbers. It now takes just 12 minutes for numbers to be generated by the Electronic Random Number Indicator Equipment compared to 10 days back in the early 1970s. This week, editor Simon Lambert, assistant editor Lee Boyce and host Georgie Frost answer the question – what would you do if you gained a windfall, big or small, either from the Premium Bonds or by other means? What does it mean to win big and what are the first things you need to think about if you’re lucky enough to come into some cash? We also discuss a 57-year-old reader who was the latest star in our regular Money Pit Stop series, who wants to make sure his own investment portfolio can withstand downturns and provide him with a good income at retirement.

This is Moneyball: Does it pay to have a motivational speaker give team talks and how do you manage a star player?
How important is being able communicate effectively and calmly as a leader? This is Money assistant editor Lee Boyce and broadcaster Georgie Frost have Steve Sallis, founder of Solutions Mindset, in the studio this week for secrets on how to give team talks and man manage troublesome 'star' players. Elsewhere, Nike saw more than a billion dollars wiped of its value after new Duke College basketball star Zion Williamson – dubbed the new LeBron – saw his shoe 'explode' just 30-odd seconds into a match-up against North Carolina. Former President of the United States, Barack Obama was there and tickets were selling for five-figure sums. We have self-confessed sneaker geek George Sullivan, chief executive of Sole Supplier, to tell us about the impact, and how important sports endorsement deals are now for consumers. And our question of the week: is it fair that Wimbledon are offering hospitality tickets to ladies final for £1,550 a pop – but for the men's final, it's almost three times the price?

Policy Matters: Why are there so few women in economics and what can be done about it?
Historically, economics as a discipline has been dominated by men – and despite increases in the proportion of female lecturers and professors in recent years, women remain under-represented. In this episode of Policy Matters, hosts Matt Dickson and Franz Buscha talk to Sarah Smith, Professor of Economics at the University of Bristol and head of the Royal Economics Society’s Women’s Committee. They discuss the need to change girls’ perceptions of what economists actually do, and to encourage more young women to take economics at A-level and at University. Sarah explains how within academia there remain barriers to career progression for women and that raising awareness of this amongst the male-dominated hierarchies is an important step in helping to level the playing field. The discussion closes thinking about what economics can learn from other disciplines that have made greater strides towards gender equality.

NEF: What's really making the NHS sick?
Two years ago, nurses and doctors warned that the annual NHS winter crisis was now ​‘the new normal’. In the cold weather, hospitals were overwhelmed by patients that they did not have the space to treat. But we’ve had a milder winter this year. Is the same true for the health service? The prime minister announced a new 10 year plan for the NHS in England, promising ​‘world class’ care. But critics say nothing much has changed – and that the NHS will continue to lurch from crisis to crisis. This week, we’re taking the NHS’ temperature with nurse and campaigner Danielle Tiplady, lead organiser of Just Treatment Diarmaid McDonald, and NEF senior researcher Daniel Button.

NEF: Does Economics need a rethink?
Oxfam reported that in the 10 years since the financial crisis, the number of billionaires around the world has nearly doubled. It’s fair to say, the economy isn’t working for everyone. Every week on this podcast we look at a different economic problem and how to solve it, but what if economics itself – the way we teach it, talk about it and think about it – is the real problem? Ayeisha Thomas-Smith is joined by three people working to democratise economics and change how it’s taught across the country: co-director of Rethinking Economics Maeve Cohen, Chief Exec of Economy Joe Earle, and Polly Trenow from the Women’s Budget Group.
