About the Podcast

While “InsurTech” seems like the buzzword of choice these days, insurance technology has been around for decades. As a true believer that the past informs the future, podcast host Reid Holzworth speaks to both insurance industry “godfathers” – the original innovators who paved the way for tech at a time when bell-bottoms were still in fashion – and today’s trailblazers, who are busy disrupting one of the world’s most traditional industries.

Join Reid, along with co-host Christen Kelley, as they distill wisdom from these radically different vantage points in the continued quest to create innovative insurance technology that brings simplicity and value to the entire insurance ecosystem.
