Love this podcast!

I love love love this podcast. I listen to it all the time, even at working sometimes! Love how they are able to explain complex concepts in a way that everyone can understand and interesting yet still very detailed! The only thing I wish was that the podcast was here two years earlier when I started my career so I could have better prepared myself in the industry

MY FAVOURITE PODCASTERS OF ALL TIME!!!

Current LSE undergraduate navigating the finance world and I absolutely love Kristen and Jen’s podcast!! I wanted to know so much more about the field and didn’t know where I could find a good introduction. Then I came across the Wall Street Skinny and I thought it was going to be any regular podcast but both make it funny and give their own experiences I am hooked on every episode !! Truly a fun way to learn about the finance world and first hand experiences. Both amazing women and are both such inspirational women. Thank you so much both!! Keep up the amazing podcasts!!!
