On this edition of the COIL, our guest is once again the talented Andrea Seabrook, the driving force behind the syndicated show DecodeDC and former Congressional correspondent for NPR and host of the weekend edition of All Things Considered.

This week we’re delving into the issue of crowdfunding – why it’s become so important, some of the controversial issues around its adoption and how it’s spawning a wave of innovative projects, including Andrea’s own DecodeDC. We’re also taking a look at what it means to be a trailblazer in alternative-funded media and how hybrid crowdfunded/sponsored content can actually work. In a bit of psuedo-investigative journalism, we delve into the world of Mexican soap operas, as Andrea shares a bit of her own illustrious history and how she came to land a role in the prime time telenovela, Demasiado Corazon.
