 The world is changing! 

It would have been odd had I stopped there. 

I (your host, Jordan Bohall) see the world changing to be increasingly digitally based. In fact, to be a global citizen in the 21st Century, we all need to be digitally literate and data driven.

However, there is no consensus as to how this can be achieved. None of the experts can agree as to how we can support the widespread effort to increase the technical skills of the world's population (let alone what digital literacy even means)!

This is the driving force behind the podcast, Data Couture. The idea is to deliver a podcast that excites everyone to get involved with the new currency of the 21st century: data! To that end, the show is aimed at anyone - not just tech industry nerds. Everyone can gain valuable information without worrying too much about ideas or concepts that are obscure or not understandable without first having a PhD!

Data Couture is the podcast covering data culture at work, at home, and on the go! 

Podcast Format

Each week I release three episodes. On Monday, the topic of the week is introduced in a drive-time length (~20ish minutes) episode, and on Wednesdays and Fridays key aspects from Monday needing more explanation or exploration are covered in shorter (~10ish minutes) episodes.

Topics range from the latest in Artificial Intelligence to how to successfully transform company culture into one that is data driven. Occasionally I interview top professionals in the data industry as well as feature topics that are highlighted in the news. 

Why Kickstarter?

I've been podcasting for a few months now without ad revenue, sponsorship, or even plugging my own products. 

However, it turns out that podcasting costs a significant amount of money in order to achieve good sound quality, host audio, host a website, distribute the show to every podcast outlet possible (you can find the show wherever you get podcasts), and to subscribe to the software to allow for quality production.

So, I am turning to Kickstarter to cover these technical, hosting, and production costs.

If I achieve my goal from all of you backing the show, then I will be able to run the show in its entirety as well as improve some aspects of the gear I use for the next year!

Of course, if this campaign is funded well above the stated goal, then the show will be able to be supported for as many years as funding implies!

Pledge Level Descriptions

$1 Level: you are a beautiful person that believes in the medium of podcasting. Thank you! I will be announcing your name as a backer of the show on an upcoming episode!

$10 Level: you get an amazing set of stickers and a button featuring the show logo and our favorite hashtag.

SWAG!!!!!

$50 Level: I will be releasing private episodes once per month for backers at this level. The episode will be double the length of my normal Monday shows (so ~45ish minutes), and it will feature a topic that is suggested from the group of backers (you!). You will get this benefit for the rest of the run of the podcast (so, forever)!

$100 Level: I will create a page on the podcast website, datacouture.org, where all backers at this level will be featured with their preferred photo and a brief "about me" description. These will be posted for all time, and everyone visiting the website will be able to see that you have done something awesome to support a quality podcast!

$1000 Level: I will interview YOU! You will get the opportunity to be interviewed on Data Couture and get featured on a Monday episode. Of course, we will coordinate times that work for both of us, and then we will talk on Skype to record a 30 minute show. Usually this takes about an hour, and the episode will be released a week or two later!

Risks and challenges

Other than my computer crashing, postal services becoming redundant, or the internet itself going down, there are no real risks associated with delivering the podcast or the pledge level benefits.

Of course, budgeting for all of the costs associated with creating and producing the podcast is a challenge. But, with your support, this can be easily overcome!
