Fintech Beat Podcast

The Future of Finance is Now

About the show

Fintech is reshaping the way finance works, from Wall Street to Main Street and beyond. And in the process, new rules of the road are being written to engage emerging technologies. Yet the technology remains as misunderstood as the policies designed to help raise capital, ensure privacy, and maintain market integrity. 

From Washington, DC, the epicenter of global fintech policy, Fintech Beat covers the most recent developments in issues concerning the fintech community—from cryptocurrencies, roboadvising and machine learning to crowdfunding to payments. Hosted by Georgetown law professor Chris Brummer, the show interviews leading authorities in the field while tying popular culture, news, technology and regulatory developments into succinct weekly episodes.
