The CrowdCrowd Podcast (July 19, 2013)

on Friday, Jul. 19th

It's the latest edition of our crowdfunding and crowdsourcing podcast! Panelists Cindy Marie Jenkins , Jonathan Poritsky (The Candler Blog), Etta Devine (Diani and Devine) and Tom R. Pike join host Noah Nelson to discuss crowdfunding trends and news.

This week our big talk is around Ouya's "Free The Games" matching funds promotion for Kickstarter campaigns, then we turn to the history of crowdfunding, Emmy nominations (it's relevant, I swear) and the Latte Fund for the week. Bonus: Noah does a Bane impression for like five seconds.
