Rewards update + new podcast feed URL + new 5000 challenge
Invisibleurs! Hope you’re doing well. It's been a busy couple months at 99PIHQ.
Rewards update: The international orders are taking a little longer to get in the mail because I didn’t quite realize how much US customs does not want people to send things to other countries. We have to fill out a little triplicate form for each package, but we’re working through them. I’m so sorry for the delay.
If you’re in the US and haven’t received anything yet, we are still going through a few orders (couple dozen) that responded to the survey after we began packing the first 2000 rewards. They’ll also be out soon.
If you haven’t responded to the survey that collects you address and pertinent info (e.g. T-shirt size), now’s the time!
If you have your rewards, be sure to post pictures of your 99% Invisible stuff on twitter and Facebook. I love seeing 99% Invisible out in the wild!

The new 5000 challenge: We're trying to make the show the #1 podcast on iTunes by getting 5000 ratings and reviews! If you don't use iTunes, don't sweat it, it's not worth signing up just to review the show. But, if you do use iTunes, please take a minute to give a 5-star review of the show and that is the best way you can help raise the ranking and make us the #1 podcast on iTunes. We've already received over 400 new reviews in the last four days (because the 99% Invisible audience is the best audience in the world) and we've rocketed up the rankings by over 70 spots! You rule.
Thanks again for your generous support of the show. We have all kinds of great things in store for you this season. Stay tuned!
