The hugely inventive podcast 99% Invisible treats the design of everyday things like a forensic science. In each episode, creator and host Roman Mars highlights some nearly invisible design process that you had no idea was incredibly interesting and then tells you why it is. The show is on our must-listen playlist, and season three is our Kickstarter of the Week.
To date, the 99% Invisible Kickstarter campaign has raised $87,536 (more than double its funding goal), with 21 days left to go. Mars’s success may end up opening the floodgates for other independent radio producers eying Kickstarter as a funding source. “I want to further blow up the idea of what a public radio show is, how it should be distributed, and how it could support itself,” Mars says.
