This week Jason speaks to financial journalist Iona, who explains how her mother's canny and careful approach to money helped lay the foundations for Iona to keep her own lifestyle simple and low-cost.

They discuss how social media and reality TV can lead to emotionally driven spending, the role of personality in career choices and why she has never had a credit card.
