    Interesting…
    Everything I like does not get funding.

    How are those funding decisions made? (Both in theory and in practice?)

    I always find amusing when older episodes of Space Ghost Coast to Coast list the U.S. Department of Education as a funding source. The kids have to learn about CHiPs somewhere…

    From what I’ve seen most programs have a commercial sponsor for CC transcription, or it’s provided by some charity other than the Feds.

    So where do you look these up?
