On the inaugural This Week in Crowdfunding podcast, David Stark and Zack Miller discuss all things crowdfunding.

First up, we do a hard-punching news roundup. We chat about Kickstarter’s recent rule changes, why the real estate crowdfunding industry is currently receiving so much PR, and a recent study that sheds some light on optimizing crowdfunding campaigns.

lendacademy's lend academyWe interview Peter Renton of LendAcademy and the Lendit conference, who’s a true pioneer in the marketplace lending industry. We ask Peter on where the industry is headed. Pay attention to Peter’s description of the rumored, upcoming Lending Club IPO and how he expects this to be a seminal moment in the crowdfunding industry.

Lastly, in our product review section of the podcast, we take a closer look at NickelSteamroller which is a great site to both analyze the marketplace (p2p) lending industry in general, as well as analyze individual securities at the portfolio level.

That’s a wrap for the first of what we hope to be incredibly engaging and informational podcasts we’ll be publishing weekly.
