Help the Liberal Dan Radio Program expand through the end of the 2013 year.

This is a project to fund the Liberal Dan Radio Program through the end of December 2013. Funds collected will help to pay for expenses involved in running the show (including the purchasing of equipment, advertisement, and paying staff and on air talent). 

"Liberal Dan" comes from a New Orleans Conservative radio host who gave me that name when I called in to counter the points of him, his callers, and his guests. Several "YOU ARE LIBERAL DAN" exclamations later, I knew I had to do something. I really enjoyed the previous radio show I had co-hosted and I knew that an internet podcast was the way to go. And after another friend of mine let me on his blogtalkradio.com show, I was hooked. So I registered the domain name liberaldan.com. I got all my ducks in a row for registering all of the appropriate social media accounts, and I started recording shows. 

I intend on making this show last well beyond 2013. However, a good start with a Kickstarter campaign will be a great way to enable future success. And who knows, perhaps I will also have a kickstarter for the 2014 year. 

Because the show is a live show and a podcast, your commercials do not just play when the show is live. They will also play whenever anyone downloads the podcast and listens to it. There is no limit to the number of times that your commercial could be heard.

Note: All reward levels contain only what is stated and do not contain items from lower reward levels unless explicitly stated in the reward or in via a stretch goal. 

Stretch Goals!

50 shirts: I am using cafe-press to fulfill my t-shirt orders. Once 50 shirts are ordered I will improve the quality of the shirt from a "value" t-shirt to a standard white t-shirt. This will also enable orders of XLT/2XLT/3XLT. 

100 shirts: If 100 shirts are ordered, I will throw in a bumper sticker with each shirt order. 

UPDATE: Any commercial advertising or sponsorship bought in this Kickstarter can be renewed for the same prorated rate next year as well. 

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Risks and challenges include:
1) Production of bumper stickers and t-shirts will be done by a third party. The required time to make the items, have them shipped to me, and then repackaging them to be shipped back out to you all depends on their production time. Of course, I will keep everyone notified of the production schedules as applicable.
2) The creation of commercials requires both parties to come to an agreement on any background music (to make sure it is pod safe) and on the content (to make sure it is both g-rated and takes the appropriate time). The commercial should also sound good. The amount of time it could take to complete the commercial will depend on all those issues. I also have final say on if the commercial (or banner advertising on the website) is suitable to be played on air (or placed on the website) If you are planning to purchase commercial time, I suggest working with me before the kickstarter ends in order to get the product on the air as quickly as possible.
3) Vacations, holidays, sick time and technical difficulties (including weather events that prohibit me from connecting to the internet) can interfere with the operation of the show. If you are buying a set number of commercials this will not affect you. But in the event that a show is missed, for any reason, reasonable attempts will be made to reschedule the show or to increase commercial time given in future shows. But there may be weeks where the show does not air (like on Thanksgiving Day). So by purchasing advertising time "per show" you understand that you only get commercials when the show would air.
4) Any reward level that gives you banner advertising on Liberaldan.com will require the reward recipient to deliver the image to me before I can display it on liberaldan.com. There will be no placeholders until that graphic arrives.

    Two Minutes: Instead of buying one 30 second commercial you can choose to buy 2 minutes of airtime on one individual show. You can use this to make an extended commercial or give your own editorial opinion about an issue you are passionate about. You decide what goes in your two minutes however, like the commercials, it must be G rated and if you chose to use music it must either be pod safe or you must have the rights to use it in all the formats it will exist in. If it is a commercial, it doesn't matter who voices it. It can be me, you, or someone else, However, if it is an editorial opinion you are giving on a matter, I will not voice it. I put the delivery date as December 2013 because your 2 minutes will air on one episode of Liberal Dan before the end of the year. If what you want to air is time sensitive I will give date priority to the people who bid first on this level. On editorials, I reserve the right to share my opinions of what is aired if I disagree.
