To date we have raised $2.8 million in seed financing for RadioPublic to take our vision for a more open, networked, and generative podcast ecosystem from theory to reality. Just one year into the journey we have a thriving community of listeners already numbering in the hundreds of thousands and logging millions hours of listening on RadioPublic, a stellar team of 12 building, designing, curating, and supporting our platform, and a rapidly expanding set of podcast publishers partnering with us to grow and engage their audiences.
To be clear, meds aren’t a cure-all. I still go to therapy, and struggle with the feeling that depression has robbed me of the majority of my life. I mourn for the typical teens and 20's experiences that I missed out on. I’m surrounded by talented, high-achieving people and I wonder if it’s too late for me to have a chance at success. But in the end, it’s worth it. Life may still not be easy, but now it feels possible.
