Spam Spam Spam Humbug: Episode 25 – The Joys and Pitfalls of Crowdfunding


Another off the cuff episode, this one very nearly ended up not being published at all (because of this, in case you’re curious). However, thanks to some urging from the rest of Spam Spam Spam Humbug’s contributors, I buckled down and spent a few hours making very careful edits to the episode audio.

And let me tell you, it was worth it. Because in this episode, I was joined by none other than Joe Garrity (he of Origin Museum fame), and we talked for nearly an hour about crowdfunding…and the sometimes absurd expectations that people who back games on e.g. Kickstarter develop as a result of having chipped in.
