Listen to Chemda's one-minute guided meditation. It will enlighten your Kickstarter journey.

We record a new hour-long podcast every weekday. On the show we talk with comics about current events, pop culture, politics and even intimate details of our lives.

We’ve reached the funding goal within 72 hours thanks to you! That means that after this campaign ALL digital downloads from our store will be available for free to all donators!

For every $500 we receive over the initial 15K goal, we will add an extra full hour to the marathon!

How many hours should we go for?

FUN FROM THE KATG STUDIO

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter asks everyone to include a list of risks and challenges they face. Below is a list our challenges and how we plan to overcome them.

Technical Challenge: ensuring the server can handle the traffic load since the last marathon had several hundred people chatting and listening.

- Addressed by maintaining a high-powered server, high-tech chat software and extra bandwidth for heavy traffic loads.

Production challenge: ensuring the cameras and studio equipment functions properly

- Addressed by bringing in dedicated technicians.

Production challenge: ensuring the show streams properly throughout the marathon

- Addressed by having a backup high-speed internet connection along with a cell phone wireless hotspot.
