This is a wonderful idea for a new podcast. It would be great if the podcast could also be made available through other platforms (e.g., Apple Podcasts, Overcast) in addition to just Spotify.

Recently the new Director of the CFPB Rohit Chopra assumed his position to lead the Bureau in a new direction of enforcement against companies or financial institutions who violate financial regulations. It has become apparent that the governments revolving door of employees into the public sector is a fairly serious conflict of interest. One recent noticable move was CFPB Thomas Ward (departs to represent creditors) https://datamatters.sidley.com/sidley-welcomes-former-cfpb-enforcement-director-tom-ward who recently departed the CFPB who was in charge of enforcement against financial institutions violating the rules. In many instances companies were not only violating financial regulations, but were also committing criminal acts severly injuring consumers. Therefore, the CFPB realized a serious deficiency in ethics rules governing current and exiting employees. This is a link to the updated rules to combat what must be viewed as ethics violations https://files.consumerfinance.gov/f/documents/cfpb_engaging-with-former-federal-employees_ethics-guidance__2021-11.pdf

Protecting consumers must be the CFPB's top priority.
