Podcast 04: CU Skeptic

Welcome to episode 4 of Credit Union Innovators. My guest is the infamous CU Skeptic. I don't know who he is, but this is what he states on his blog.

He's a sub-30-year-old male that has spent the last few years working in and around the banking and credit union industry. He has heard the tales of credit union greats and seen what some would call the bottom of the barrel. He's seen the efforts of small town banks and has all of his personal accounts with one of the big banks.

His take on banks and credit unions? At their current state, credit unions as a whole are no different than banks to the end user. Each have their share of sellouts and standouts, but in his eyes, that’s the bottom line.
