A Kaleidocast Christmas Update

Posted by Brooklyn Speculative Fiction Writers (Creator)

Hello Backers,

As I write this email, I'm watching the music video Flaming Lips cover of David Bowie and Bill Crosby's "Peace on Earth/ Little Drummer Boy." It's beautiful and a reminder that though 2018 was difficult for many, there is still an infinite amount of hope and beauty yet to be tapped. I hope this message finds you in good spirits, because I come bearing good news.  

 With the exception of Episode Two with "Wing" by Amal El-Mohtar and "Unfit to Eat by Aliya Tyus-Barnwell," our first season averaged around two hundred plays (currently episode 2 of season one is at eight hundred plays). Season Two blows these numbers away.  

Kaleidocast has had a wonderful second season. From Episode Four on, we are averaging over twelve hundred plays. The season's not even done, but some of our episodes are creeping dangerously close to two thousand. That's an incredible increase in listenership, and it has everything to do with the quality of the stories and the work put in by our dedicated team of producers, Sam Schreiber, Jessica Plumbley, Marcy Arlin, and Brad Parks, Brooklyn Speculative Fiction Writers founder. We could not have made this happen without your moral support and contributions. Because of you, we get to dive deep into that font of hope and infinite beauty and bring you stories. 

Season 3 is going to be another upgrade as we hope to go semi-pro. In 2019 we hope to launch the Kaleidocast subscription to support the growth of the podcast, the BSFW platform for excellent writers. I hope you'll be among them.  

Happy Holidays!  

Sincerely,  

Cameron Roberson

Managing Editor

 David Bowie has been a great inspiration for Season 2. Makes sense that he herald a new year with all our hopes and dreams in song from the Flaming Lips.
