Fortune Favors the Bold
This Mastercard podcast encourages listeners to think about money differently and tells stories about people and businesses doing just that.
Money is changing—the way we earn it, the way we use it, and even the way we handle it. The problem is that the way we think about money today doesn’t seem to be changing in step with the times. We’re still seeing it as some sort of rational, objective equation you should magically learn in school. We created Fortune Favors the Bold to explore and expose the “rules” about money we all take for granted, and to look at how some people and companies are “breaking the rules” and thinking about things like work, credit, literacy, etc. in new ways that just might benefit a whole lot of people more. -Brooke Capps-Yaroni, Mastercard editorial director

Hosted by Shannah Compton Game, this show makes it normal to talk about money, and stresses that money shouldn’t be a taboo topic. In each episode, you’ll uncover ways to reduce financial stress, learn tips to create financial independence, be inspired by stories of people who are achieving dreams no matter the size of their bank account and leave each episode empowered to go out and crush your goals.
“One of my favorite tips is to practice financial forgiveness, because everyone makes money mistakes and we’re all more alike than we are different. No matter where you are in life, it’s never too late to step into the life you’re meant to live.” -Shannah Compton Game

HerMoney with Jean Chatzky
The TODAY Show’s Jean Chatzky hosts frank interviews with women about personal finance. Don’t miss the mailbag segment, where Jean and her team answer common questions and solve problems from listeners.
On HerMoney, we know personal finance is more personal than finance, which is why we lead with life. To us, life is the topic, and money is the tool we use to make it happen. But it’s a tool too many women don’t feel confident about using. So we cast a wide net to cover all the topics we need to get confident about—from investing to relationships, from student loan debt to why we make financial decisions that we know don’t make sense. Finally, it’s important to acknowledge that women have more money and more power than ever before—and there’s more coming our way. By 2030, women will control 66 percent of America’s wealth. On HerMoney, we talk about the important ways in which we can use our money and our power to make life better for us, for the people we love and for the world. -Jean Chatzky
