    As fintech develops and companies look to add more features to their product - we’re seeing a lot of similar offerings across the board.

Easy listening, informative, and fun!

I started listening as I began my search for a career opportunity in the fintech industry, and I was compelled to leave a review after finishing the episode about Robinhood. I thoroughly enjoyed the discussion and am in awe of the incredible people that define this industry. The last few episodes have truly opened my eyes to the social issues that surround traditional banking. I can feel myself growing after tuning in each week. I can’t recommend this enough, and look forward to starting a career in fintech!

Love and frustration

Great podcast for all things FinTech. I always learn something and end up going down a research rabbit hole based on something I hear. I only wish you would focus more on making money. So much good stuff about transactions, innovations, talent etc but almost nothing about “how will it make money?” Without a bit more reality you sometimes sound like the cheerleaders for the dot com bubble before it blew. There is real money being made in FinTech - but not always…. And often in creative ways. Thank you!
