A refreshing podcast by Pål Krogdahl & Ville Sointu looking at Fintech & Banking Technology

Between digital native customers demanding instant gratification and the ever increasing amount of regulation, financial institutions are between a rock and a hard place. The era of the fintech started after the 2008 financial crisis, challenging the status quo. More than a decade later banks haven’t gone anywhere, yet fintech is more relevant than ever. What happened with all the fintech hopes and dreams? In this podcast Pål Krogdahl & Ville Sointu pick one topic in every episode and try to look at it through the lens of fintech disruption - or lack thereof. This is Fintech Daydreaming.

S05E11 - The (FinTech) Boys of Summer

Summer is officially here, and that means it’s time to end another roller coaster of a season of the Fintech Daydreaming podcast. Before we do that though, our hosts Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu sat down to summarise some of the main highlights, key themes and best takeaways of season five. As a bonus Ville drops a career newsbomb seemingly out of nowhere 💣

 

Special thanks to all our fans for listening and watching us during season five. Fintech Daydreaming will return for season six in August with a fresh lineup of guests and topics. But for now, we wish you all a great summer, and a big thank you to our guests for season five...

S05E10 - Around the fintech world in 50 minutes with Hyung-Gon Paul Yoo

down as we finally got one of our most anticipated guests to join us for a chat. Our hosts Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu sat down with Paul Yoo from Meta who has a phenomenally interesting career that has taken him around the world working for some of the best known brands in fintech.

 

We got to talk about everything from crypto to the metaverse and ended up learning about how once upon a time bitcoin “almost” took over the economy in Thailand. Tune in. You won’t regret listening to this one.

S05E09 - Digital for good with Chris Skinner

Getting the fintech legend and author Chris Skinner to join us for a chat in our Fintech Daydreaming studio was a fantastic milestone for us.

 

Our hosts Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu got to talk about everything from his new book “Digital for Good” to the metaverse, but little did we expect that we’d learn what Chris thinks about one of our hosts (all said in jest), superhero fintech jokes and the legend of Captain Cake 🍰 Sounds confusing?

 

Listen in and everything will become clear.

S05E08 - Getting to the core of banking with Ion Fratiloiu and Yobota

Another day another episode about banking as a service? And, why not! Ion Fratiloiu from Yobota joined us to give us a new perspective to the topic: from a platform to a full stack banking as a service provider by becoming part of a fully licensed bank.

 

We also continued to develop our long term plan to launch the Fintech Daydreaming bank in exotic countries where we have listeners. Tune in to hear what our hosts Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu need to do next!

S05E07 - Cloudy day in banking with Jaakko Vilen & nCino

Based on the amount of drama around our podcast hosts catching covid-19 one after the other there might just be a Fintech Daydreaming Netflix series in development sooner than we think. Against the odds we do however have the full crew onboard to hit another first ever for Fintech Daydreaming: we had our first ever guest joining us in two consecutive episodes!

 

Jaakko Vilen from nCino joined Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu to give us a (re-)visit to our discussion around the hottest topics in fintech right now: sustainability, cloud and lending transformation. And yes, you will find out how nCino got the name it has today. This involves a movie with a 15% rating in Rotten Tomatoes. You really should hear it.

S05E06 - Live at the Nordic Fintech Summit 2022

In our first ever episode recorded live in a conference Pål Krogdahl and Ville Sointu were invited to cover all the buzz at the Nordic Fintech Summit in Helsinki. After two years of lockdowns and endless Zoom meetings the excitement to meet everyone in three dimensions was a sight to behold and the atmosphere was buzzing with fintech companies across the world joining us in this episode.

 

Join us to hear how it all played out: did Ville make it in time from his flight direct from the Finovate conference in London? Did it all go according to plan? We have it all covered!
