Fortune Favors the Bold - The Official Mastercard Podcast
About This Show
Fortune Favors the Bold is a podcast about the unique and changing role money plays in our lives—and about what happens when we take risks, take control, and redefine our relationship with it. Hosted by writer and personality Ashley C. Ford, the series will tell stories about the people and organizations who took one look at the ever-growing list of conflicting financial “shoulds” and decided to take a sharp turn to the left—then started writing their own rules.
This is the official Mastercard podcast, produced in partnership with Gimlet Creative.

The Cashless Society: A Live Episode
Imagine using your phone to give a subway busker a couple bucks. Or, walking into a store knowing you won’t have to wait in line to check-out. Imagine a world beyond cash. In some Scandinavian countries, this is already a reality—roughly 90-percent of all financial transactions are on debit cards. In this episode, taped in front of a live audience in Manhattan, an economist, a humanitarian and a businessman will discuss how cash is being replaced around the world with electronic payments. You’ll hear a lively conversation, moderated by Ashley C. Ford, between representatives from The Fletcher School at Tufts, The International Rescue Committee, and Lyft about what going cashless looks like worldwide, and what the United States can learn from other countries about getting it right.
