Supporting Radiotopia

I just supported (very modestly) the Kickstarter project of Radiotopia – and if you care about storytelling, radio shows and podcasting, you should consider it too. The Kickstarter campaign for this new kind of public radio still runs for 4 days as I write this. The goal of $250,000 was attained and right now Radiotopia got pledges for $529,673 which means they’ll be able to ‘level up’ as they explain on the Kickstarter page.

If you think it’s important to enable podcasts about subjects which would have a hard time finding money on the commercial market, you should support this project.

These are the shows enabled by the project:

I particularly like 99% Invisible, a show about “design, architecture & the 99% invisible activity that shapes our world.” Roman Mars (@romanmars) is the creator of 99% Invisible.

I discovered the project via my friend Charles Maynes, a Moscow-based podcaster. You can listen to one of his fascinating stories on 99percentinvisible about the composer Arseny Avraamov who heard music in the cacophony of the modern world…
