Compliance Podcasts for Your Next Travel Day


It's conference season, which means great speeches, meeting new and old friends, plenty of networking opportunities and lots of travel.

This weekend MCO staffers are exhibiting at SCCE's Compliance and Ethics Institute in Las Vegas, a long haul from our offices in New York. Next week it's Atlanta for the NSCP National Conference. How do we keep busy on flights and stay in-the-know? Podcasts. 

We're not alone. In 2017, Edison Research found that 42 million Americans listen to podcasts on a weekly basis, at an average rate of five per week

If you don't already have some go-tos, we've listed a few of ours to get you started.

1) Compliance Perspectives by SCCE

Featuring Compliance and Ethics thought leaders from around the globe, the SCCE podcast covers enforcement trends, current events, and best practices in the compliance and ethics arena.

2) FINRA Unscripted by FINRA

FINRA Unscripted is the voice of the nation’s largest non-government securities regulator. FINRA leaders discuss existing and emerging regulatory topics that impact the broker-dealer industry and share best practices for compliance officers. 


SIFMA is the voice of the nation’s securities industry, bringing together the shared interests of hundreds of broker-dealers, banks and asset managers. We attend the SIFMA Compliance & Legal Conference in March but like to stay connected all year round by following this podcast.

Another one of our popular and repeat Webinar presenters, Linda Tuck Chapman is a member of the Steering Committee and facilitator for the RMA’s Third Party Risk Management Roundtable, and co-presents training to U.S. Community Banks with leaders from the RMA.
