Hang out with me! That's what you can do as part of my new project, "Hang Out With Me!" It's a podcast/webseries*... because what is a podcast but a series of hang-outs recorded and purveyed on the web. A series of web things. You get it. Or do you? You do. I have faith in you. Humanity! With robothood! Working together, not destroying one another! Hopefully!
But why do I want to make a podcast? Well, after surveying the internet landscape, I noticed that none of the podcasts that exist already were mine (though I've had wonderful times hanging out on the podcasts of others), and it seemed that there was room for one more podcast (thanks, internet!). And here it comes, hopefully!
So, I want to raise one dollar in order to make this happen. Why only a dollar? Aren't podcasts more expensive than that? Shouldn't they be? Great questions, hypothetical questioners! Well, that one dollar will indicate that there's interest from at least one person to hang out with me, which is all I need. And if we raise more than the one dollar, that money will certainly come in handy to put towards all the other podcast costs (podcosts?), which I presume exist.
The point is, if you care about any of this (which I presume you must, at least a little, because you're still reading, so thanks!), and you want to be a part of said things, join in! With your money if you have some! And you can be a part of "Hang Out With Me"! At least your name can! Or even your voice! I almost said your face, but not quite. I mean, we can take a picture and put it on our site, if you've donated the requisite amount to get into our studios, or the $10,000 necessary for us to come record at your home (in the continental US... it's expensive to get to Hawaii... but maybe we'll go there also... we'll see).
You get the idea. Now, take it, spread it, run with it, and make it everyone's idea! Tell everyone to come hang out with me on "Hang Out With Me"!
* You might notice that the category of this project is "web series," because Kickstarter has no separate podcast category. If need be, we will use the initial dollar to purchase a stamped envelope (or separately, a stamp and an envelope), into which will be placed a letter to Kickstarter, to inquire and make sure that their definition of webseries includes podcasts (which I presume it should, having logically deduced it above). And if it doesn't, it will ask why. And also why podcasts aren't included as a category of thing that Kickstarter will fund, specifically. Why must there be visual AND audio? Why the sense-bigotry? But for now, since they've accepted this project, we'll just agree to agree. Thanks for spending so much of your life reading this! I hope you hang out with me more!
