I’m a big fan of the new HBO show Industry. It follows a group of young graduates competing for  permanent positions at fictional investment bank, Pierpoint & Co. It’s the most authentic depiction of a trading floor that I have seen on a TV show, so I had to get the creators of the show, Mickey Down and Konrad Kay, on to my podcast show. In this podcast we discuss:

  1. Their backgrounds working at investment banks
  2. Where they filmed the trading floor
  3. Why they avoided storylines like insider trading
  4. How they captured the details of sales/trading and M&A
  5. What the show tells us about young people today
  6. Will there be a season 2?
