Risks and challenges
Risks are low. We've done this before and we've delivered all our rewards on time! Plus, this time we can count on a bigger team of 10 people who are working with us every day to bring these new two fantastic projects to life. Our artists are already working on the new portraits, our manufacturer in Canada is ready to print, and our fulfillment centers in Chicago, Brooklyn, LA and San Francisco are up and running!
The podcast is a new challenge for us (as was the book, last year). However, this is not the first time we produce audio: in fact, we created 12 mobile apps before this book and each of them had a strong audio component (especially Timbuktu Magazine, for which we produced 50+ audio stories). In fact, Elettra Bargiacchi has worked as our sound designer for a very long time (that's how we know how exceptional she is). To further minimize risks for the production of the podcast, we are hiring a very experienced radio producer.
