Non intimidating Financial Info from a huge Financial Firm

I have known BlackRock is a huge financial firm but I did not know what they really did so I was not sure how a Podcast from them for average Podcast consumers would be but was very pleasantly surprised. The Podcast addresses topics that are both relevant and interesting financial topics and does so without being intimidating or making you feel like you need to be a part of the Wall Street club to listen and understand. I will definitely be subscribing.
