ICYMI: CBC Covers The New Planet S Subscription Thing

In case you missed it, I was interviewed on both CBC Saskatchewan and CBC Saskatoon this morning about our new crowdfundy-kickstarter thing! Those interviews have been transmogrified into a story:

The papers, produced biweekly by Hullabaloo Publishing, will still be freely available in their traditional coffee shop, pub and street box locations. But, by taking a page from the crowdfunding playbook, Whitworth is hoping to keep the printing press humming.

“Our readers who value our paper, and seem to like us from what we can tell, should have a clear and concise opportunity to support us directly,” said Whitworth.

Subscriptions start at $9.99 for every two issues. There are increasing tiers of paid support that include perks for readers wishing to contribute more.

Read the whole thing here, and, if you want, support our “weird and funny…fanatically fact-based, reality-based and entertaining-to-read” publication here.

  1. Can I offer a weird suggestion? I’d be willing to be a subscriber/supporter, but I have zero interest in you mailing me a paper. Turns out, I’m cool with the internet. Could there be a “electronic only” subscription option, with the perks (like being part of subscriber-only giveaways) and without the paper and postage?

  2. Hi Anna! Great, not weird, suggestion. That’s something we’ll add when we have a chance. Look for it soon-ish!
