Brett King and Sam Maule host Breaking Banks, which today talks about financial inclusion, digital identity and the refugee crisis.

Today, I’m joined by Marc Hochstein of American Banker, and Peter Renton, founder of LendIt Academy, to talk about the upcoming Digital Identity Crisis Webinar, The LendIt Conference at the Javits Center in NYC, and the proposed Fintech Charter and what that can mean for changes in banking in the US.

Sam Maule takes the helm in the second half, and talks to Zeina Shuhaibar from the IRC, Ashish Gadnis, founder/CEO of BanQu Inc, and Aneesh Varma, founder of Aire (credit scores for humanity @AireScore) to talk about fintech solutions to help refugees regain some economic stability, and contribute to the economies of their new domiciles. And we encourage everyone to help!

You can listen to more episodes of Breaking Banks, and other fintech shows, on the BankNXT podcast page. Enjoy!
