Waters

Anthony Malakian, US editor of Waters, and James Rundle, news editor of Waters, record a weekly podcast touching on the biggest stories in financial technology. This week, though, Emilia David, US reporter for Waters, fills in for Anthony.

This week Anthony is away on vacation so it’s up to James and Waters’ US reporter Emilia David to take the helm. First they look at the fintech space before moving on to Brexit movements and Game of Thrones.

1:00 Fintech and regulation—a primer.

02:30 Are sandboxes there to help fintechs, or to protect against them?

04:00 Miya and James examine whether it’s actually incumbent tech providers who might need more scrutiny.

07:20 They discuss Brexit, and how Frankfurt is emerging as a clear winner.

09:00 But what happens to London?

11:00 The guys try—and largely fail—to tackle the age-old question of whether German purity laws or American innovation produces better beer.

12:00 Miya and James wrap it up with the now-weekly post-mortem on this week’s Game of Thrones episode.
