Got an idea you want to chat about?
Obsessed with something niche?
Are people tired of hearing about it?
Do they get that glazed over look in their eyes?
Do they sigh loudly when you mention it?
Do they cross the street when they see you coming?
Do they start screaming when you open your mouth?
Don’t stress we’ve got your back!
Starting this May our podcast gives a voice to the obsessed, the fanatical and the heartbreakingly earnest. We want to hear what you’ve got to say and if you can say it in 2 minutes we can give you the proverbial floor to convince us all that we should care about your thing.
What we need from you:
- A 2 minute “pitch” for your idea, cause or obsession explaining why we should care about it too. You can mention a specific project if you like before your 2 minutes but it isn’t an ad so we can’t really take pitches that are just promotional.
- 10 minutes of your time
- A photo of you and/or the thing you care about
If you are a performer you can share a song, poem, play or short story.
So if I can’t promote my stuff what can I talk about?
Well you can expand it to talk more generally. For example, if you have a podcast about true crime you can promote it before your 2 minutes, but in your 2 minutes you might talk about why people should care about wrongful convictions. Or if you have a small business you might want to talk about the importance of shopping local or buying handmade instead of mass produced. We are totally happy to plug your stuff, but the point of the 2 minute pitch is to squash as much information about the stuff you care about into it, your promotional message can be given pride of place before or after it when listeners will have time to process it.
No matter what you love we want to hear from you
