The CrowdCrowd Episode 11

On this week's edition of our crowdfunding and crowdsourcing podcast we look to the horizon and discuss what effect equity crowdfunding may have on the film projects.

Then we pivot to comments Kickstarter founder Yancey Strickler made about the practice of stretch goals this week. All this, plus our weekly picks for deserving projects that we call the #LatteFund.

This week's panel: "Outreach Nerd" Cindy Marie Jenkins, Jonathan Portisky, (The Candler Blog),Gabe Diani & Etta Devine (Diani and Devine) and host Noah J Nelson.
