Coming Up: Listen in on ‘The CrowdCrowd’… Live

on Thursday, May. 16th

Thanks for joining us! Video Archive below.

I got tired of having six different conversations about the crowdfunding news of the week… so I've decided to start a podcast about it.

Introducing The CrowdCrowd.*

You can sneak in and listen as we record the first episode thanks to the magic of Google Hangouts. Hear myself, Cindy Marie Jenkins, Jonathan Poritsky, Gabe Diani and Etta Devine as we tackle the issues of the week.

Should be a lot of fun.

Look for the livestream HERE at 5:15PM PDT.

Join the conversation on Twitter with #crowdcrowd.

The podcast will post tomorrow, so consider this a sneak peak.

*The logo, BTW, is totally temporary.

After the jump the show notes.

The most damning post came from Flavorpill of all places.
