What are some of your favorite podcasts?

Well, I am a little biased. I am co-host of Breaking Banks, the world’s #1 global fintech podcast and radio show that was created by world-renowned fintech founder, speaker, and author Brett King in 2013We built on that success to create Provoke.fm, a full media platform with multiple shows from other well known thought leaders, including:

  • Breaking Banks Asia-Pacific – Simon Spencer talks with the innovators across the Asia Pacific region about their innovations and the shifts in customer behavior that are forecasting what will happen in the rest of the world.
  • Fintech5 – Jason Henrichs takes a glimpse behind the scenes with the game changers in money and technology, in a short-form podcast that focuses on 5 critical questions to leaders in fintech and financial services.
  • Serial Intrapreneur – My own show, where I do deeper dive interviews with leaders who battle the status quo inside larger enterprises to innovate and drive change.
