    Breaking Barriers with Lauren Simmons

    Breaking Barriers with Lauren Simmons

    Do you ever think about your relationship with money? In this episode, Lauren Simmons chats with Vlad about why you should. In 2017, at age 22, Lauren became the the youngest female trader at the New York Stock Exchange and the second African American woman in the Exchange’s 228 year history. But her path to finance was a little unusual. She majored in genetics and minored in statistics and she moved to NYC after college with no job prospects. After landing a job at Rosenblatt Securities, she shocked her colleagues by passing the difficult Series 19 equity trader exam on her first try. After two years at the NYSE, Lauren left the trading floor and is now making a film about her ascent and working on a reality TV show. In this episode, we talk about her upbringing, her journey through Wall Street, and how we can build a more inclusive financial system.

Hit or miss

Overall good info with innovative minds, yet also idiotic guest who are just dumb… The 24k golden was literally painful with words like “yolo” & that’s “facts” bro said every other sentence. Like we got a billionaire and a lucky swag-f*g gen Z poser who had an IQ of about 75 to 80 tops, conversing.

Or the sorority girl who got lucky selling finance tools and bought out, are just not realistic people to listen to.

Other guest are valid and informative, but the ones vlad is trying to interview to connect with these broke ignorant self fulfilled gen Z’s are difficult to listen to

The variety is interesting

It's not always a hit, but which podcast is when it involves guests? I like that the host asks meaningful questions to his variety of guests, which extends the gamut. Overall, it is super engaging and insightful. Not everyone is a finance expert or has taken the same path as the host or guests. If you are a fintech fan, you will listen if you are a fintech and you are going to hate it. My only criticism is that the show has been MIA for a few weeks now, and in podcasts, that's a NO go!

Ok but...

I agree with some of the comments that some of the guests are not relatable nor impart any useful info. I love the Robinhood app because of its revolutionary way of democratizing the financial market. I thought that this would be a more planet money style podcast but with a focus on interesting and innovative long term business enterpreneurs. If you are a person who enjoys inspirational taglines without any actual useful info on the market or innovative up and coming business sectors than you will enjoy this.
