We're back with a vengeance! The pod reignites in a conversation with Sophia Goldberg, payments expert, entrepreneur and the author of the newly launched Field Guide to Global Payments and overview of the industry that underpins the modern globalized economy. Sophia's book is immediately an essential text for anyone working in payments, fintech, financial services or looking to break into such a role or gain a greater understanding of payment networks around the world. Sophia and I chat through some practical applications of payments over the years, and how considerations like identity, fraud, and risk management come into play when sending funds from A to B. If you want to find out what a knucklebuster is, this pod is a must listen! Then head over to Amazon to. buy yourself a copy.
