I've been a fan of Pomplamoose for a few years, both because the duo makes great music but also because they've been fairly innovative in the way in which they connect with their audience through the use of YouTube.
So when I read that one half of the duo, Jack Conte, had launched a new funding platform in Patreon, I was curious to learn more. Patreon is a patron-based funding platform where anyone creating digital works can ask their followers or fans to give to them on a recurring basis. I talk to Jack about how Patreon differs from other funding platforms like Kickstarter, how he came up with the idea and where he sees it going in the future.
I hope you enjoy our conversation.
