Get on board the Latitude News Kickstarter campaign

Be our partners in disruptive journalism!

By Maria Balinska

As I write this we are at Day 11 of our Kickstarter campaign to launch our Local Global Mashup Show, the show that will give you “the inside edge on the stories that connect Americans to the world — in your ear every week.”

A big THANK YOU… images[1]

to everyone who’s contributed to our Kickstarter campaign so far and getting us to a total of $14,834.

Now the challenge is to raise the remaining $29,416 by the morning of February 15.

The way Kickstarter works if we don’t meet our overall goal of $44,250 we won’t get to keep any of your donations.

We need your help!

Here’s what you can do:

  • Make a donation of any amount – our rewards start at a modest $10, the price of a movie ticket or sandwich and chips!
  • Tell the world – through Twitter and Facebook – that you’ve contributed and that your followers should too.
  • Better yet – make sure at least five of your friends also contribute and spread the local global mashup message onwards.

Click here to go to our Kickstarter page. Thank you for any help you can give. Every dollar counts. And every donor counts.

And in the meantime, here’s a sneak preview of this month’s Latitude News/PRX podcast to give you a taster of what you can expect every week from us on the Local Global Mashup Show. Now that marijuana is legal in Colorado and Washington, the world is wondering — what will happen next in the U.S., creator of the “War on Drugs”? These two states have gone even farther than the Netherlands permissive marijuana laws. Mario Lap, a Dutch drug policy expert, tells Latitude News that Colorado and Washington voters have left the U.S. in an uncomfortable predicament.
