This week's winners: those of you who don't like the sound of my voice.  I have too many schedule conflicts to record a podcast this week, but wanted to highlight some links and news of note.

Kickstarter update: Alphabet Rockers TV PilotHeidi Swedberg: My Cup of Tea are both above their funding goal as of this writing, woot!  Another crowdfunding project worth exploring: Graeme Sacks' Nursery Rhymes for Africa (on Indiegogo)

By the way, Bill Childs over at Spare the Rock World Enterprises (note: not real name. Yet.) has an internship opportunity for folks who want to help get the Spare the Rock, Spoil the Child radio show broader distribution and, depending on timing, help do promotion for STR albums.  It's unpaid, but you'll learn a lot and Bill's a great guy.  Austin-based location not necessary.  Contact Bill through the website.
