Decoding fintech and making it groovy
I love this podcast! It breaks down subjects that I struggled to get my head around and makes them real and tangible. Fintech is an exciting space and I am really enjoying discovering it via this podcast!
Insightful and Illuminating
This podcast is a must-listen for anyone interested in learning more about the cutting edge of finance and technology innovation. As an academic researcher and innovation expert, I have greatly enjoyed listening to this podcast and the breadth of topics it covers. While not as flashy as some areas of the technology space, there are tremendous innovations and changes occurring within the financial services sector, and this podcast highlights some of the most fascinating areas of change, dynamism, and disruption within the industry. The interviews are both interesting and digestible, covering a wide range of market and technology issues but is also straightforward and easy to understand. As someone who knows a lot about innovation but not as much about finance, it's been a great introduction to a world I've known comparatively little about.
Great Introductory Fintech Podcast
Discovered this podcast while trying to get up to speed on the fintech space. Does a good job of taking complex concepts and breaking them down into easily digestible bites.
