S2E04 – Fit for Royalty

Brian and Chris put their ignorance of British Royalty on full display in this special episode honoring the wedded union of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Before revealing their backed projects that are fit for royalty, the Backers discuss why women get funded more often on Kickstarter and then learn about Flopstarter, the crowdfunding land of hilariously bad ideas. Brian yearns for affordable, pocketable drones. Chris yearns for another fountain pen. They also discuss an enamel pin project that probably infringes on Disney’s IP. But hey, they’re not lawyers. In the end, the Backers both find tabletop campaigns worthy of royal approval. Let the games begin.

Next time on Backers: School’s out for summer.
