The CrowdCrowd Podcast (Episode 5)

on Friday, Jun. 21st

For this week's episode of The CrowdCrowd I'm joined by regular panelists Jason Cooper (Kickstarted) and Jonathan Poritsky (The Candler Blog) and first time panelist Caroline Sharp (@csharp7), a veteran of MediaNerds, along with our regular (and dearly missed) panelists Cindy Marie Jenkins and Etta Devine.

We've got one doozy of a controversy to dig into, and the show notes reflect that the story is still evolving.

Finally: Kickstarter's mea culpa that hit this morning, after the recording but before the podcast posted.

(I'm sure we'll be talking about this next week, folks.)
