Some of the most engaging and educational voices in crowdfunding choose to record podcasts. Since crowdfunding is a relatively young industry, new podcasts on crowdfunding appear every week. Podcasts are notoriously fickle -- many times people start them, only to get distracted by other projects. Some of the podcasts we've listed below fall into that description -- they started with a few good episodes and it looks like they are less active now.
One of the most comprehensive and consistent podcasts on the subject of crowdfunding, the Funding the Dream podcast is typically 20 minutes of crowdfunding information goodness. Host Richard Bliss takes listeners through all aspects of crowdfunding: from choosing crowdfunding platforms to growing your audience and getting backers to pull the trigger on donations, to running your business post-crowdfunding. The tagline of this podcast: a Game Whisperer podcast for Kickstarters.
If you like the Funding the Dream podcast, check out the Crowdfunding Academy, a 17-part video series hosted by the same producer as the podcast, Richard Bliss.
The KickCast podcast goes out and looks for cool crowdfunding projects and rates them for listeners: should you back, sack or track popular crowdfunding projects? The KickCast podcast tells you.
