#7 How Listeners Become Owners

This episode announces a crowd-funding opportunity with Gimlet Media. We were bowled over by listener interest, and Gimlet Media is now fully funded. We are no longer accepting new reservations.

For those of you who were not able to invest, we understand. Neither of us is an accredited investor, and if we hadn’t founded this company we couldn’t invest either. The requirements are disappointing to us, but our hands are tied.

Here’s what we are sure of: the entire focus of our company will be about figuring out creative ways of involving listeners in what we’re doing.  Fundraising is only the first step. We have ideas for how our listeners are going to be a part of the company, but we know that our listeners will guide us, too. We plan to experiment in the years ahead with all kinds of creative ways to participate. We look forward to beginning the next step of the journey with you.
