We're Making T-Shirts. Lots And Lots Of T-Shirts

May 15th - via: wwno.org
We used Kickstarter because it helped us answer a very important question: How many t-shirts should we make? And, for that matter, were there even enough people who wanted a Planet Money t-shirt to make the project viable? If we were going to make the shirts, we needed at least 2,000 backers at $25 a piece, for a total of $50,000. (Read More)

Planet Money and Kickstarter: Is web-based crowdfunding the future of public media?

May 7th - via: paidcontent.org
When the reporting team at Planet Money — a joint venture between PRI’s This American Life and National Public Radio — decided to do a series tracing the creation of a T-shirt all the way from the cotton fields to the department store, producer Alex Blumberg says that Kickstarter seemed like a natural way to engage listeners in the project. In a sense, he told me in an interview, the web-based crowdfunding platform is really just a more modern way of doing what public radio has always done, which is to allow fans to support journalism they care about. (Read More)

Can we say all of the above? We're psyched that so many of you are as interested in this project as we are. And we can't wait to see how many shirts we actually end up making. Other news: So, there's been some discussion of the QR codes, huh? If you... (Read More)

NPR’s new Kickstarter is a clever commentary on the crowdfunding reward system

April 30th - via: pandodaily.com
Pop-quiz: Name an organization funded by users’ contributions who receive cheap swag in return. Is it the latest hot new Kickstarter? Nope, it’s National Public Radio. Well, actually in this case, it’s both. Instead of turning to a phone-a-thon to fund its latest Planet Money story, NPR, (who’s been participating in “crowdfunded journalism” since before the Internet was even a twinkle in the Defense Department’s eye) is using Kickstarter. The project? To make a T-shirt and tell the story of how it came into being. (Read More)
