More in-depth interviews with cultural creators, internationalists, and observers of the urban scene in Osaka, Mexico City, and beyond.

Last season, Notebook on Cities and Culture brought you in-depth conversation with cultural creators, internationalists, and observers of the urban scene in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Portland. This season, we're going fully international, to Kyoto, Osaka, Nara, Kobe, Vancouver, Mexico City, and maybe even beyond — on top, naturally, of your usual dose of Los Angeles.

Season three will run for 24 episodes. However, if we raise funds beyond the $4,000 goal, it will run for one additional episode per each additional $200. (If we raise $5,000, for example, season three will run for 29 episodes.)

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The main challenges this season include scheduling trips to each city, and then scheduling each individual interview within them. However, those represent expansions of the challenges successfully met in the show's first and second seasons, which themselves required a great deal of negotiation, rescheduling, improvisation, and last-minute substitution to pull off. This time, I'm happy to report that we've already started recording season three's interviews. The goal, as with the previous seasons, is to release between six and eight episodes per month. Should any technical or logistical issues — recording gear failure, multiple guest sicknesses, flight cancellations — delay the completion of episodes at the established pace, we'll still record and post, in the fullness of time, a total of at least 24, no matter what. And if we raise more than our $4000 goal, more than 24!
