First, let’s get this straight: crowdfunding is not a way to make a quick buck.

Successful crowdfunding campaigns take time and planning, said contributor Jim Saksa, who reported on crowdfunding for us last fall. He mentioned Analog Watch Co.’s Lorenzo Buffa, who spent six months planning his campaign. Saksa offered insider tips to building a killer crowdfunding campaign on this month’s Podcast, which is a crash course in the history of crowdfunding and its impact on the tech world today.

We’re also giving away two tickets ($198 value) to an evening with the makers of the wildly popular Serial podcast. They’re coming to Philadelphia on Thursday, May 14, to talk about the creation of Serial. For a free pair of tickets, review the Podcast on iTunes, take a screenshot of your review and send it to We’ll select one listener at random on Tuesday, May 12.
