In this week's podcast: unraveling the financial promises of our new coalition government

This week, as our brand new coalition government gets to work, the Which? Money podcast team unravels some of the promises it has made on finance. With the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats coming together on key pledges - many of them to do with tax - James Daley explains to Melanie Dowding and Laura Starkey the changes these could make to our bank balances over the next few years. 

Elsewhere, in light of the news that a third of insurance companies won't cover you if you put the wrong kind of fuel in your car, we look at a few other silly mistakes that could leave you uninsured. Which? insurance expert Dan Moore reveals some of the daft things people do, and shares top tips for ensuring you'd get an insurance payout if you needed one.
