2020 FINOS Open Source in Fintech Podcast Episodes

December 22, 2020

Did you know that FINOS has a podcast? Our Director of Community, James McLeod, and Marketing Manager, Grizz Griswold regularly speak with our community about FINOS projects and interesting topics at the cross section of financial services and open source.

We’re working on a few changes to our podcast in 2021 including expanding the type and quality of content we bring you. Prompted by the “uh oh, Covid, what do we do when we can’t engage people through in-person events” experience that challenged many early this year, our podcasts in 2020 were based around interviews from the virtual meetups we started in April.
In the coming year, we will continue to speak with FINOS project leaders, members, and other industry thought leaders, but we'll also start including panel discussions and fireside chats that you may have missed from some of our events. We'll explore case studies, conduct deep dives, and include even more of our community members addressing your common questions that come up during project meetings and office hours. Basically, we're up for anything that we can do to provide you with more value within the world of open source, financial services, and fintech.
This podcast is now available on our website, but also on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, and

Below are all the podcasts we produced in 2020.
