CGregLaw ,

I love this podcast!

Anyone who knows insurance will know it’s full of acronyms and over complication. Matthew and the team’s ability to pitch each episode to appeal to those new to a topic, but also have enough detail to keep experienced professionals in the field engaged, is no mean feat and impressed me every time. Also loving the ‘press pause’ inserts from Matthee during the conversation - and the very analogue sound bites! Thank you 👏🏻

* N Turner ,

Great guests and thought-provoking discussions

Looking forward to hearing more founder’s stories this year!

Holly M 205 ,
