On March 17, 2006, humorist and social commentator Ze Frank started his popular webseries show and podcast called the show with zefrank. It ran every weekday for a year and he and his viewers (who he calls “sport racers”) created some interesting projects during that time. Recently he began a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter so he can bring his show back and hit his initial goal within a day. We could not be more thrilled, as we have featured him and his great projects many times over the years. Here is what we posted in 2007 when he ended the first show. We are looking forward to this new show.
Some things will be familiar. My face, my voice, politics, news, science, whatever else is happening in the world, the celebration of the spontaneous… and surprises.
But the core of the original show was never really about what I did. It was about what you did. And I have no idea what is going to happen there. It’s risky, unknown and awesome. I will be asking you to make things, to do things, and to surprise me. We will use the world as our playground and I have the technology to back it up. If I don’t, I will make it.
