Our goal is to improve the emotional connection between you and the content you consume. Time spent listening is more important that clicks on a website.

The new KoPoint website is live, and new programs are broadcasting now. The new KoPoint website makes listening to our shows and subscribing to our podcast very simple. To emphasize simplicity and speed, the front end of KoPoint is hosted on and built around Tumblr. Our back end data is managed by Rackspace and served by a variety of CDNs (depending on your physical location).

The website experience (eg, kopoint dot com) is important. The website serves as a handshake introduction, a distribution hub, and a community portal. More important, however, is that the website help guide you towards developing an off-screen experience.  

At it’s heart, KoPoint is a content company produced by humans. Yes, our studio shows do pop, hiss, and crackle. KoPoint has always been a fun and messy company. It is my sincere hope that KoPoint becomes something you listen to, relax with, and experience in your mind’s eye.

In the past year, KoPoint has produced over a hundred full-length episodes and served almost two million minutes listened. 


  • KoPoint is recognized and credentialed as broadcast institution by the United Nations.
  • Our correspondents were credentialed during the presidential campaign including the early primaries and conventions.
  • We’re have strong web distribution and are distributed nationally on news and talk radio.
  • Our reporters have interviewed folks like Cory Doctorow and Steve Wozniack.
  • We served several hundred thousand downloads and several minutes listened.
  • We retained three primary, technology-based underwriters.
  • We raised small seed funding from SumAll.

The new season of KoPoint content features a fantastic slate of shows focused on business, technology, and culture created by talented hosts and producers:

Thank you very much for listening. I encourage and look forward to hearing from you, and I hope you enjoy our shows.
