One of the most beloved modern audio drama showcases for over 7 years, Radio Drama Revival now faces a crossroads. Longtime host, Fred Greenhalgh, is being drawn into new creative challenges, and the costs to run the service are increasing steadily even while the free podcast brings in no revenue.
So, we outline the course like this: raise some operating funds for 2014-15, and use those funds to put Radio Drama Revival on a sustainable financial track, OR go dark at the end of October, 2014.
Here's how Kickstarter funds will be used:
- $50/mo - Upgraded hosting fees
- $50/mo - Stipend for new show hosts. We will add up to 4 people with rotating guest slots allowing for greater diversity in programming choices
- Anything else - Support for reviews or for submissions editor
Risks and challenges
We have run this podcast for over 7 years so we know how to keep it going. The problem is, it is reaching a scale where it needs more funds to keep it going and so we're reaching out to you. Should this campaign succeed, we will have better/faster hosting and bring on a diverse group of new hosts so that the podcast will be better than ever before.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
