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
This week, Fortune Favors the Bold brings you a bonus episode. Ashley sat down with Trevor Mundel, President of Global Health at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Mike Froman, the Vice Chairman and President of Strategic Growth at Mastercard to answer the question on all of our minds: How can we work together in a crisis?

How Do I Make Work Work for Me? (Part Two)
This week, Ashley heads to Albuquerque, New Mexico to continue exploring the question, “how can I make my work work for me?” To find answers, we’re doing something a little different: we’ll meet two people who are already talking through big questions– about work, life, and having an impact– together.

How Can I Travel Responsibly?
Travel is often a transformative part of our personal and professional lives. But there’s a growing conversation around the ethics of traveling. From the carbon emissions involved in flying to the impact on local communities, there are a lot of factors to consider when it comes to deciding how, where and why to travel.

What Do We Get When We Pay for School?
It’s hard to know what exactly you’re paying for when you pay college tuition. Is it a chance at a better career? Some time on a lush green campus learning from worldly professors? The risk of six-figure debt that never seems to shrink? And if students are paying a fraction of that price or nothing at all in other countries, how do we rationalize the cost here in the United States?
How Do We Define Ourselves...Financially?
Welcome to Season 3 of Mastercard’s Fortune Favors the Bold! Ashley C. Ford is back, and she’s kicking off our season by diving into the financial question that underlies everything else we’re talking about this season: how do we define ourselves financially?
