Then in January 2007, my friend Olly Mann and I started making a podcast, Answer Me This! And although the show has reaped dividends way beyond what we imagined - two Radio Academy Awards, a spin-off book, and proper radio jobs (Olly is now a presenter on LBC 97.3; I’m on 5 Live’s Saturday Edition) - there remains no better reason to make a podcast than 'because you can'.

The Big Short, the film adaptation of Michael Lewis' book of the same name about the causes of the financial crisis, opens in UK cinemas this weekend.
