S1E01 – Let’s back some Art!

We’re back, and this time we actually backed things! This is a discussion about the Backers’ first assignment, to back a project from the Art category on Kickstarter. Brian and Chris grapple with the expectations they had before examining approximately 300 art campaigns and how that tracked with what they found once they dived in. We are introduced to the vibrant economy of enamel pins, naked money grabs, lost Michael Jackson heads, and an ode to Marcel Duchamp.
