S2E03 – Be Good to Yourself

Steve Perry is never far from the Backers’ minds, so what better than a Be Good To Yourself theme to power us further into Season 2? Current events point the opening discussion to new badges for projects in the Kickstarter Hardware Studio and a timely story about a Nintendo Switch related product that probably could have used them. We also touch on ways that Kickstarter is being used in entrepreneurial education. A disparate collection of campaigns are highlighted this week: jackalopes, cyberpunk stories, stabby orcs, drones, and carbolicious ramen. Brian finds an elegant solution for carrying his currency, and Chris adds to his dungeon mastering arsenal.

A mea culpa: It had to happen sometime… we screwed up the recording a bit in this episode. Well, Brian did. Please forgive us our foibles and Brian swears that it’ll never happen again.

Next time on Backers: In order to make up for our lack of discussion on the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle, our theme for next time will be “Fit for Royalty”.
