Business & Economics Podcasts

Money. Mimosas. Mythbusting. That Mint Podcast is the brainchild of Cathi Harrison (Director of The Verve Group) and Jo Campbell (Director at Para-Sols). Fed up of answering the same questions to people who don’t know financial services (What is a paraplanner? Do I actually need a pension? What the hell does an adviser even do?) the pair decided to create something that could pop that finance bubble, and make it a little bit more accessible to all. Bringing their years of knowledge and experience in finance, and combining it with their northern no-nonsense approach, a dash of wit, and the odd splash of wine, Cathi and Jo are bringing a fresh approach to what is often considered quite a dull industry. Listening to this podcast will help answer some of your questions, show you that finance can actually be a little bit interesting, and provide you with the occasional chuckle. Give it a listen – you won’t regret it! (Unless you’re not a fan of puns – then you’ll definitely regret it).
