Oh, The Humanity!

It’s unclear whether we are in the midst of a digital revolution or traffic jam. Chris Skinner, fintech pundit and author of the recently released Digital Human, and Michael Ventura, CEO of design agency Sub Rosa and author of Applied Empathy, join host Jason Henrichs and co-host Colleen Wilson to discuss the role of the human in a digitized, AI driven, mobile first, blockchain world and the fact both digital and human interactions are hard to get right.


Digital Human

Chris Skinner joins host Brett King and co-host JP Nicols to talk about his new book Digital Human: The Fourth Revolution of Humanity Includes Everyone. Chris says technology is changing the way we talk, trade and transact. We are now interfacing with technology whenever we do business, make friends, and go about our lives. What does this mean for business, banking, society and government? We continue that talk with Bruce Parker, CEO of Modo Payments as he talks about how they are building a better, faster way to connect payment systems.


200 Episodes of Fintech!

We are celebrating our 200th episode today!   Brett is hosting Chris Skinner, Dave Birch, and Sam Maule  (all show regulars) to discuss how much has changed since we launched in May of 2013 and how much has stayed the same.   On the discussion table are:  alipay, Jack Ma, blockchain, AI, building a true digital system, payments, financial inclusion, and favorite guests and lessons from the previous 199 episodes.   It is all wrapped up in a Moment of Snark from Ron Shevlin.

All we need now is one of JP Nicols  Fintech Bingo cards, and our listening would be complete!
