Podcast Review: For Your Innovation

For your innovation

A disruptive innovation podcast

Created by ARK Invest, FYI – For Your Innovation is a podcast providing insights into recent disruptive developments and innovation. ARK is best known for its Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) ARKK, which includes stocks such as Tesla, Crispr, and Square. Each episode is hosted by an ARK analyst and one guest, usually an industry specialist, engaged in a lively intellectual discussion. 

Since November 2018, ARK has released more than 80 episodes and it covers a wide range of topics including AI, Robotics, fintech, and healthtech. Guests include startup founders, professors, doctors, physicists, and researchers. 

In the “The Future of Supersonic Travel with Blake Scholl, CEO of Boom” episode, Scholl discusses his ambitions for supersonic travel. He also talks about the history of the supersonic jet and of his company, Boom, from its origins to its plans to release an affordable commercial supersonic jet. Scholl also explained how his tickets are more affordable for business travelers due to the cost being proportional to hours, not miles, thus cutting down on crew, catering, and fuel expenses. 

On ARK’s website, each podcast episode comes with a summary and a list of key points, which highlight the main ideas discussed in each episode. However, one improvement could be made to these summaries: timestamps could help listeners navigate to certain discussion points with ease. 

Although the podcast is informative, useful, and funny, one disappointing factor was the inconsistency of new episodes’ release times. Listeners may wait one to three weeks for a new episode to be uploaded. 

FYI – For Your Innovation is not only for investors, but for everyone who is curious about and interested in future technological developments. While the podcast touches on novel ideas, professional jargon, and complicated concepts, the host and the guest condense these ideas and developments into an understandable format for the layperson.
The podcast is available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, YouTube, and on ARK’s website. –JC and BC
