Completely not by design, many Through the Cracks posts this month have been about the great success of podcasts that seek crowdfunding.

There was Radio Ambulante, Snap Judgment, Canadaland and now the podcast network Radiotopia.

With 23 days to spare the new PRX project to support seven podcasts hit its $250,000 goal in a Kickstarter campaign. Today with 20 days to go and more than 8,000 backers the campaign has raised $316,000.

Earlier this week 10,000 Words wrote a story supposing a radio revolution.

“So when did radio become cool again?” the article asks.

The answer to that and other questions can be found in this 10,000 Words story.
