Extremely informative, pleased I stumbled upon this pod!

On the money

Fascinating content in Arlene McCarthy’s episode from Jan 2020. She makes key themes very accessible and her comments on TCFD and mandatory disclosures are key. Jason Mitchell’s interviewing style is spot on - eliciting detail without derailing Arlene’s delivery. Have now subscribed and look forward to the next one in March!

Outstanding!

High quality and diverse content, rich library of guests, great format, insightful questions and Jason Mitchel does a great job at asking them! A lot of work goes into this, would be a shame to miss this podcast!
