Changing public radio and other stretch goals!
Since the last update we’ve achieved two amazing stretch goals:
The $80,000 mark is long gone, so Sam Greenspan is moving to Oakland to come work for 99% Invisible 3 days per week. This allows me to put out at least 35 episodes in Season #3. Sam is behind a couple of 99% Invisible’s most popular shows:
The $90,000 mile marker is also in the rearview, so the brilliant guys who made my Kickstarter video (and really, isn’t it the best Kickstarter video you’ve ever seen?), ZeroOne Productions, are now officially commissioned to work on a video episode with me to be released in season #3! Here is their 2012 “Show Reel” to give you an idea of all the cool things they do. I’m pretty sure my next video will have at least one Star Wars Storm Trooper.
Plus, as of today, we’re over half way to the 5000 backer goal and that extra $10,000 from Debbie Millman and the Design Matters Institute!
Also, we've been getting nice coverage in the press. This one from Wired, "This Podcast is Kicking Ass." Indeed!
Thanks everyone! This has been amazing.
