“There are many fintech podcasts but Mike brings a dose of English humor, perspective, truth and insights that not only am I entertained but remain informed. Great job and top form.” Stitcher review

The LFP has been funded by brand partners since 2016 and I’d like to thank current partners Smart Pension and The Unlisted Board.com

“Essential listening for anyone wanting to get a better grasp of London’s flourishing fintech scene and how it all fits together. Cuts through the hype, which is rare.” iTunes review

Its focus is topics, not firms, quality not quantity, and understanding how FS as a whole is being impacted and changed by the new digital world.  Audience feedback is universally along the lines that it is highly educational, un-hyped and is most often described as “grown-up Fintech”.
