As of this writing, the Kickstarter fund drive for Notebook on Cities and Culture‘s first season has raised $2386. The original funding goal asked for $999 to cover the production of a 24-interview season, but when the drive blew past $999 in about eight hours, I decided to add another incentive: for each $250 raised over the goal amount, I’ll produce an additional interview in the first season. We’re already up to a 29-episode season. Care to help make it an even 30? (I’d also be willing to furnish, say, an even 40, if the public so wishes.)
Two backers have snapped up sponsorships of the entire season, but one remains, so if you’d like your project or message mentioned at the top of every single episode of Notebook on Cities and Culture‘s first season, you’d better hurry! Nineteen episode sponsorships remain, so if you’d like your project or message mentioned at the top of one episode of Notebook on Cities and Culture‘s first season, don’t feel quite so rushed. But do feel a little rushed; the fund drive wraps up entirely in about 48 hours.
In any event, many thanks to all the backers who have come on board so far for their generous support, and thanks as well to all those who plan to listen to the show when it debuts. Rest assured that I’ve been hard at work these last few weeks trying to create a conversationally stimulating program for you. You can get a slight sense of it with the four brief previews I’ve released so far:
