About Us

In For a Pound takes a light-hearted look at the most exciting, crazy, and downright perplexing ideas currently seeking investment in the crowdfunding world.Each episode we pick a theme and discuss a handful of ideas that have caught our eye. We try to figure out the insights that lie behind the ideas being launched, predict what’s going to fly and what’s going to tank, and generally gaze in awe and admiration at the inventiveness and unshakable optimism of the human spirit.All three of the INFAP team are experts who earn our living in innovation. If you’re looking for serious investment tips this is probably not the place for you. But if you like a laugh, join us as we take our latest sideways look at some cool and not-so-cool new ideas.Find us on social media @InForAPoundPod.Cheers,Blake. Geraint and Rupert.

INFAP 26 - He's Gonna LOVE this!

EIn this week’s episode we delight each other with an urban bee-hive guaranteed to get you better acquainted with your neighbours, a device for starting fights with other motorists, and a tennis robot programmed not to laugh at your serve. In the time machine we discover that gift-giving has been around for nearly as long as humans’ ability to pretend to be grateful for things.

INFAP 25 - Testosterone

This week, we man-up, slip into some sexy male lingerie, go for a steroid-enraged scenic indoor bike ride, and pick a fight with the world’s most intelligent punch-bag. In Time Machine we look at the world of bare-knuckle fighting and ask ourselves if brain damage is only technically possible if one has a brain to start with.

INFAP 24 - Fun in the Sun

EIn this episode, your sun-loving podcasters discover a selfie drone that literally gets in your face and stays there, a portable air-conditioner rated for hot Welshmen, and a Nixon-era flamethrower that invited itself to your barbecue. In the time machine we slather ourselves in sun-screen facts and wonder how we all made it through the beach holidays of the 1970’s alive.

INFAP 23 - Lie to Me

EIn today’s episode we disagree with a dental tool’s claim that it sucks, we check out a device that makes hidden cameras into just cameras, and strap on a wristwatch that tells you whether you’re lying to yourself or not. In the time machine – while peering from behind a cushion with one eye closed and the sound muted – we investigate the history of the horror movie.

INFAP 22 - 'Merica

EThis week we discover where you can stick your second amendment rights, how to best keep your beers cold in remote locations, and how to teach children the best way to fish for alligators. Then we jump aboard the innovation time machine to explore the invention of the corn dog, and are surprised to learn that it contains only one of the ingredients listed in its name. Probably.

INFAP 21 - Things That Spork

EIn this episode we discover a flask that keeps your coffee piping-tepid, a multi-purpose shovel with eighteen different un-handy dysfunctions, and a safe that isn’t. And in innovation time-machine we look back at 2-in-1 haircare, and wonder if using shampoo alone might be a form of unconditional love.

INFAP 20 - Wedding Gift Hell

EThis week we unwrap the rising popularity of wedding gifts like cheesemaking machines, bouncy castles, and robotic toilet cleaners (a pretty handy gadget if you’ve overdone it on homemade cheese and bouncy castles). And in innovation time-machine we discuss how the wedding registry has created deep, loving and committed relationships between department stores and credit card companies everywhere.

INFAP 19 - More Money than Sense

EIn this episode we waste our precious time and money on a device that stops teenagers washing properly, a pen that wobbles but won’t fall down, and a home cinema set-up that’s only marginally cheaper than buying an actual cinema. The innovation time machine takes us back to the good old days, when you could give your hubby a golden fountain and he might still have you beheaded.

INFAP 18 - Pain

EIn this episode we explore how a hot sauce’s Scovell score may be inversely proportional to its user’s IQ, we a device that unlocks the full potential of your brain (except the part that evaluates purchase decisions), and G shows us how a broomstick applied to the right part of your anatomy can change the way you sit forever. And in innovation time machine we look back to a time when pharmaceutical companies were nothing more than a bunch of profit-crazed drug pushers.

INFAP 17 - Pretentious? Moi?!

EThis week we marvel at a meditation recording that proves how much better pretention sounds on vinyl than on CD, we find a food-truck cashing in on the global craze for Romanian vegan cuisine, and G shows us the perfect suit for the billionaire on a budget. Innovation time machine leaves us wondering if the pretension of the renaissance really was the best solution to the plague, pestilence and having to listen to Gregorian chants.
