Fortune Favors the Bold - The Official Mastercard Podcast

Season 3 of Fortune Favors the Bold takes on real questions from real people — financial questions that everyone thinks about, but no one talks about. With host Ashley C. Ford, we’ll be putting those questions out in the open, exploring how money is tangled up in everything and finding the answers through our own “Financial Identity”. New episodes premiere in January 2020. This is the official Mastercard podcast, produced in partnership with Pineapple Street Studios
