The CrowdCrowd Podcast- Episode One

on Friday, May. 17th

Introducing The CrowdCrowd, a weekly show about crowdfunding.

We’ve gathered a rogue’s gallery of clever panelists– Cindy Marie Jenkins, Jonathan Poritsky, Gabe Diani and Etta Devine, all led by host Noah Nelson to discuss the crowdfunding news of the week.

Recorded via the magic of Google Hangouts, this pilot episode is a little rough around the edges, but we’re proud of the quality of the discussion.
