Go Time is the official Indiegogo podcast that provides an intimate, behind-the-scenes glimpse into the stories and motivations behind the most inspirational crowdfunding campaigns on Indiegogo. Through one on one interviews and comedic interlude, hosts Bret Harris and Dave Mandelbrot uncover the challenges, successes and motivating factors experienced by those pursuing their passions.
