I should probably hold off on posting this, because the good news is likely to become great news in the next few hours.
What’s the news? If you’ve been following my tweets today, you saw that Now Playing Podcast’s Kickstarter project passed its $95,000 stretch goal. That was just before noon, and as I write this, the campaign is just a few hundred dollars in pledges away from hitting $100,000.
That’s insane. I don’t have a lot of experience working on Kickstarter campaigns, but to hit $100 grand — with an original $40,000 target — is crazy. This is a runaway success, and the campaign doesn’t even officially end until early Thursday.
It’s been such a thrill working on this campaign, and the listeners came through in ways no one expected. It had me wondering today, how many independent podcasts can claim this kind of success and this fan base? Now Playing is legit, too legit, like the song!
Even better, today the Fast & Furious review was released. I urge you to listen and find out why this is the best podcast on the planet.
