Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

We finished the campaign with $620,412 and 21,808 backers. Wow!

I'm overjoyed to be part of the Radiotopia collective, the PRX team, and this amazing community of listeners. With donations from $1 to $25,000, we surpassed all expectations and came together to make a new kind of public radio. It was a beautiful thing!

Thank you for believing in us. This is only the beginning. 

We're going to earn this and make you proud.

more soon,

      Every program I subscribe to from Radiotopia is more than excellent -- do not know how you do it!
      Have been with Lea from the very beginning and just contributed so Jenni can go to Europe. You are all wonderful!

      I am so happy for everyone at Radiotopia.

      I came for 90% Invisible and stayed for everything else. I love you guys and I can't wait to see where this goes!

      Very impressive! Congrats to the whole Radiotopia team and all the backers that made it possible.

      Anyone know how this Kickstarter campaign stacks up against traditional public radio fundraising efforts?

      I love every one of the shows in Radiotopia. I wish there was more time in the day to listen to all the amazing content you guys are producing! Thank you especially, for making a conscious decision to include women's voices.

      The ancestors, the living, and those yet to be born are cheering in masses! Way to go, Roman! Wow.

      Woohoo! Congratulations Radiotopia! This is a win for you content makers but actually a bigger win for us listeners!!! So good job everybody!

      So exciting to see you raise so much. The collection of shows is excellent and it is inspiring to see a small radio show like 99PI be able to grow into radiotopia. I have a restaurant and we have seen nine employees in 11 years leave to start their own businesses. most of them were successful. you are multiplying your success instead of just adding onto it. you are proving that folks are hungry for this sort of media. not only that, but the fans are devoted. it's really time to step back and enjoy the view. well done.
