March Madness! Final Call for Rewards!

Posted by PRX, Inc (Creator)

Dear Team 99pi: 

It’s March Madness time for public radio and KPCC has put together a bracket with radio shows from all over the country fighting it out for supremacy. What do we win: nothing! But, it’s fun and we’re exposing a whole new public radio audience to 99% Invisible. We’ve made it into round 2, and we could use your vote:

I think it would be very cool for a crowd-funded podcast with limited radio airplay to get into the public radio finals. As I type this we are down by only 150 votes, so you could make all the difference. Thanks for taking the time to vote and please spread the word!

Season 4!

I hope you’ve been enjoying the weekly episodes, so far. It’s been so much fun putting them together and I’m so proud of the shows we've released. Sam’s episode, "U.T.B.A.P.H." (Used to be a Pizza Hut) became an instant fan favorite. If you missed it, please take a listen: 

The whole team (me, Sam, Avery and Katie) is now together in downtown Oakland and we have great shows to come. Stay tuned! New episodes are released every Tuesday.

Final Call for Rewards! 

99% of you should have your rewards by now. If you haven’t gotten a reward, and you are expecting one, first make sure you filled out the Kickstarter survey. The survey triggers the fulfillment process and it is how we collect your address, shirt size, etc. Log in to your Kickstarter account and click the yellow link at the top of the screen so we can get the specs on your order (If you don’t see a yellow bar at the top of the screen linking to a survey, then you’ve already filled it out). Surveys only went out to donors who are receiving a physical gift (those who gave $15 or above). If you already filled out your survey, and there’s some other problem with your order, please contact Chop Shop directly to get your issue resolved. Our man on the ground there is named Thomas, and you can reach him at We want everyone happy, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are hoping to wrap all of this up by the end of the month, so please complete your surveys now!

Thanks again for your generous support! It really means so much to us and we hope to make you proud.

      Painful: having to vote against Glynn Washington. But I did it. You owe me one. One of what, I can't say.

      Please keep voting even if you see we've pulled ahead temporarily! Snap Judgment (our Round 2 competition) are tough and keep coming back to best us every time.
