Made in Carroll Show: Season Two

Overview

A lot of folks seem to think that all we've got in Carroll is conservative politics and cornfields. The truth is, there is so much more to Carroll than that. In 2016, Steve Lowe and I launched the Made In Carroll Show. We wanted to tell the story of the amazing and surprising things made right here in Carroll County, Maryland.  On Season One, we highlighted local entrepreneurs who are building world-changing technology products right here in Carroll County, Maryland. We found them above car washes, in old firehouses, and of course, in home offices right off of entryway foyers. 

On Season Two, we want to tell the story of the craft wine, beer, and spirits boom taking place in Carroll. We look forward to introducing the community to the entrepreneurs and families behind businesses like:

In order to "brew" you up something great, we need your help. We tried to make supporting this project as rewarding for you as it will be for us. Our reward levels range from getting a shout out in the show credits to being our guest on a Season Two episode of your choosing.

Why are we Fundraising? 

The first season was a labor of love. And what we discovered was that love hurts. Our passion project was richly rewarding, but costly. Planning, producing, recording, and marketing the show was much more than chatting with cool entrepreneurs for a short period of time. 

Steve and I spent our time, and money, to bring you one season. We are hugely excited for the next season, but for the Made in Carroll Show to reach the next level we need outside resources. 

With Season Two, we'd like to make every episode of the show available in both audio and video. We'd also like to provide a more dynamic and engaging web presence to give the people and businesses we feature the spotlight they deserve. 

To make this happen, Steve and I knew we needed some help. 

First, we needed more time. Since Steve and I can't clone ourselves, we decided to recruit a new member to join our team. We are very excited to welcome Dennis M. Twigg to the Made in Carroll Show. 

Second, we needed more money. Since Steve, Dennis and I can't print money (that's illegal you know) we decided to launch this Kickstarter campaign. With the incredible response we received from the first season, we are hoping that there are many more people in Carroll County just like us that want to help tell the story of what is REALLY made right in here in Carroll County, Maryland.

Risks and challenges

Producing the second season of the Made in Carroll Show and delivering the perks we are offering to project backers is going to be a lot of work.

With each of us having a full-time vocation, we know this is going to be tough. After a lot of soul searching, we believe this project is something that we want to do and each of us is committed to making it happen. We believe that there are amazing and surprising things happening here in Carroll and we want to tell that story.

We've already produced one season, and with your help we are excited to launch our second!
