Getting the Word Out

Comment

One of the big hopes in launching this Kickstarter was getting the word out about Blank on Blank. Over the past six months we have been quietly gathering content to launch our podcast, radio segments, and animated versions on YouTube. I thought Kickstarter could be the perfect platform to introduce listeners and journalists to what we're doing. 

The early verdict: it's working.

Just some of the recent coverage: ForbesNeiman Journalism LabFuture Journalism ProjectColumbia Journalism Review & Tumblr's in-house Storyboard.

More is on the way. Stay tuned. I think we're onto something. 

Please help spread the word about our Kickstarter. http://kck.st/OrBhle

We're 30% of the way to our $$ goal--the Kickstarter crew says that 90% of projects that get to this point reach their mark. And some great lost interviews are being submitted. More on that later this week. 

That's all for now. Enjoy the BBQ, sparklers, and parades everybody. Have a good 4th.
