Sean Astin Vox Populi: Voice of the ‘Occasionally Interested’ People Kickstarter Campaign #StartTheVox #ENMNetwork

This post may contain affiliate links or I may have received the product free in exchange for my honest review. See full disclosure for more information.


Every since I was a little girl, I loved watching reruns of the Patty Duke show.  It wasn’t until years later that I learned she had an amazing son, Sean Astin, who was also a great actor. From his early work in “The Goonies” to a classic favorite of mine, “Encino Man”, Sean has starred in some great roles and has proven to be a great actor.

Outside of the lights of Hollywood, he has shown his intellect with hosting a great radio talk show about everything from world events to current politics.  Read more below to learn how you can help Sean fulfill his dream and take his talk show to the next level.


Sean Astin Hosts a Forum for Discussion: Politics, Government & World Events. Divergent Viewpoints & a High Standard of Civil Discourse

Sean Astin


“We Began this Political Radio/Video Talk Show May 3rd, 2012.  To Date we have streamed 31, Two Hour Long, Episodes Live on the ToadHopNetwork, {Radio Worth Watching}. 

With virtually no actual dollars invested, we have managed to book National Caliber Guests, for example: U.S. House of Representative Members, & diverse high caliber influencers such as Noam Chomsky & Michael Medved. Everyday people from around the world, people with wildly divergent viewpoints on every topic listen and call in live to the show. After an exhaustive trial period, we are now ready to Launch the Show as a viable competitor in the National Pundit Marketplace. With your help, we are “READY FOR PRIME TIME!!!” 

The show has a lot of heart, but now it’s time to give it some muscle. We’ve past the viability test, now we are looking to you in the KickStarter community to help us deliver a bigger and more robust civic experience. Therefore, we are making the 1st Fully Produced Season of Vox Populi. 


In order to do this, we need to have a more secure infrastructure in place. The support funds will be used: First, to hire part time staff (Producer/Booker/Social Media staffer/Administrative Assistant). A single employee may assume more than one of these roles, for example the Producer may fulfill the Admin duties; 2nd, to purchase certain pieces of equipment necessary to insure the audio quality of the productions & the telephone technology to manage multiple callers in an efficient and elegant manner. The interest in the program has grown such than many members of the public call in, live, to the broadcast & managing that traffic is complex. Finally, the research required, the coordinating of guest schedules and the preparation of visual materials are time invested tasks requiring minor administrative, logistic and operational expenditures. 


The funding sought here is meant to immediately Produce a Full Season of the radio show. We intend for the funds raised to secure a physical infrastructure, not only for this season, but as a strong foundation for the show going forward. 


So far, Vox Populi has been marketed primarily in two ways. The Sean Astin Twitter Following has grown from 28,000 followers before the show  to 87,000 people and counting as the show has developed. In advance of each episode, a barrage of tweets is sent reminding people of the time of the show & stoking interest in the often hot button topics to be covered that week. As a point of interest, each 2 hour episode has enough time to go into greater depth on subjects of interest that are not generally covered in the mainstream media. An example of this was an episode which was entirely dedicated to exploring the function of the Congressional Budget Office. By interviewing a former Director of the Agency. It was a fun, informative and robust show. The second manner of promoting the film is the ToadHopNetwork’s homepage, where our banner is prominently included on their roster. They also plug Vox Populi during their regular programming. At this stage, our show boasts a regular audience of 12-15 thousand viewer/listeners. Finally, supporters of this show can feel good that they are participating in an endeavor that our hugely diverse audience declares is one of the fairest and most accessible outlets they’ve experienced, heightening their desire to learn more about issues & emboldening them to “get involved’ in the social & political activities in their community. Thank you in advance for helping us take this show that we love, to the “Next Level”
