“We are recognized by the federal government as an organization that provides an educational resource… On the other side of things, it’s interesting for us to figure out what that [non-profit] status allows us to do or not do. We are held to a much higher level of transparency.” [12:00] —Erin Fairbanks on Snacky Tunes
