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 data journalist Mona Chalabi, the series will tell stories about the rules of the game when it comes to money, and the people and organizations who are breaking them in ways that benefit us all.
