I’m thinking a lot about this nowadays. People have been so kind and generous with their words and attention to our work. I’ve tried to cultivate these relationships with our readers and listeners — giving and receiving in our exchanges.
Many times the advice offered is a traditional one that’s proven effective in public radio world models, but I’m unsure if, at its heart, the giving campaigns are about deepening relationships and relatedness. That’s what I want to do with On Being.
I’m watching some promising models out there; maybe you have others to offer as examples?
