Turnstyle News friend and PRX wizard Roman Mars is proving what the next era of public media looks like. The Kickstarter campaign for Mars’ fantastic 99% Invisible podcast has already cleared over $100K in just two weeks.
That’s well over double the amount he was looking to raise, and he’s still got half of the campaign left to go. But that doesn’t mean that Roman is resting. Oh no. He’s tackled on another, possibly bigger, goal. To reach 5000 backers for the campaign. Any size donation counts. If he makes it, the Design Matters Institute will kick in another $10K and Mars will buy a tropical island where he will construct a radio rocketship.
Okay, I made the island part up. And the rocketship.
He should totally do that, though.
