Episode details

Hey all, Jason here.

Happy to bring you the latest episode of Fintech Recap, where Alex Johnson, of Fintech Takes, and I unpack some of the month’s biggest, most interesting, or just plain weird fintech news.

This month, we were joined by special guest Sophia Goldberg, fintech founder and author of recently released book, The Field Guide to Global Payments. We had a chance to discuss:

  • Chaos in the crypto ecosystem, including Celsius Network’s freeze of users’ funds, trouble at hedge fund Three Arrows Capital, and Sam Bankman-Fried as modern-day J.P. Morgan

  • Klarna’s ever-shrinking valuation and what it may mean for the future of buy now, pay later

  • Apple Pay Later, including theories on the economics and how it ties into Apple’s “Project Breakout”

  • and more!
