Essential listening for anyone working in FinTech

FinTech Beat really hones in on the key issues that are really effecting and interesting those that work anywhere in finance.

Their coverage on regulation in particular is so valuable, and Chris manages to get into the weeds, while also making the conversation relatable for their listeners. Can’t wait to see where this podcast can go!
