Six months ago, we raised $3000 in a week to fund 32 episodes of Notebook on Cities and Culture‘s premiere season: 32 long-form interviews with cultural creators, internationalists, and observers of the urban scene all over Los Angeles. Starting right now, we’re aiming to raise another $3000 in a week for Notebook on Cities and Culture‘s second season, which will not only offer more of what you enjoyed last season, but will begin the show’s world tour. We’ll take this operation up the west coast to Portland and San Francisco, exploring those cities and getting down into it with their most interesting luminaries.
Kickstarter, as you may already know, makes it exceedingly easy to fund projects like this. If we don’t reach $3000 within the week, you keep whatever money you’ve pledged. Give certain amounts, and you can sponsor the show in a variety of different ways:
- For $25 or more, I’ll thank you by name in all of season two’s episodes.
- For $75 or more, I’ll mention your own project or message at the top of one of season’s two’s episodes, and thank you by name in all of them.
- For $400 or more, I’ll mention your own project or message at the top of all of season two’s episodes.
- For $1000 or more, you’ll be the guest in one of season two’s episodes. I’ll come to you (within North America only, at least for this season) and we’ll record a conversation about the culture you create and the city you create it in. I’ll also thank you by name in all of season two’s episodes. This sounds like a joke, and I partially made it an option so the other options would look cheaper by comparison, but in the unlikely event of a $1000 pledge, I will totally do it.
For every $200 raised above the $3000 goal, I’ll add one more episode onto the season than the planned 24. (If we raise $5,000, for example, season two will run for 34 episodes.)
