Fintech is happening in a big way in Australia - from open banking, consumer data rights, changes in payments and neo/challenger banks - we have it all and more. We also have some interesting, intelligent, funny and inspiring/inspired founders (possibly should have gone for 'irreverent' instead of 'funny' to maintain the alliteration). In this podcast, we showcase the talented people, the companies they are building and the changes that they are driving through the landscape in Australia.
