The aim of this weekly series is to take complex issues and break them down in a way that gives listeners an insight into a world that can often be impenetrable, either because of really dense figures, ratios and percentages - or because you need to navigate obscure financial terminology.
New episodes of the show, hosted by Fin24 deputy editor Ahmed Areff, will be released every Friday.
