There’s elephants in the room. Welcome to new LifeSearch podcast series Searching for Elephants. It’s fortnightly discussion and debate, interviews and insights, and real people’s real stories. It’s an honest look at the talking points inside and outside our business, our industry, our lives.
We’ve spent over 20 years making life insurance - or protection as well call it - easier and more transparent. In that time we’ve made protection advice more accessible to anyone who wants it - and now our award-winning advice and more lands on Spotify, Apple, and YouTube every two weeks.
Created and hosted by Angus Baigrie with regular appearances from his Dad, LifeSearch CEO Tom, we invite you to come and meet the elephants.
