Storytelling podcast “Strangers,” one of the delightful new series spawned by KCRW’s Independent Producer Project, is a weekly show exploring real life tales of encounters with strangers. Buoyed by the show’s positive reception just four months after launching, producer Lea Thau has started a fundraising campaign on kickstarter to keep the podcast going.
Thau, a Peabody award-winning producer and former executive and creative director for The Moth, hopes to raise 20K to produce a second season of “Strangers.” If the turnout at last week’s party for the podcast was any indication, Thau certainly has a strong listener fanbase. Hopefully they’ll cough up. Here’s a pic from the event of Thau with filmmaker Marshall Douglis, who shot the fundraising video above.
