Looking For People To Collaborate On A Tech Podcast

Every time we've tried to do a podcast on VentureBreak, we've failed. It has almost always been my fault—because I have a weird schedule and can never keep up with it. But I'd really like to try again, and I need passionate people with strong voices (literally and figuratively) to help me out.

I want the podcast to be focused largely on current tech-related news, gadgets, and startups. It's free to stray to other topics from time to time, but those will be the focus. I want people who can report the news objectively while still presenting an opinion (laying out the facts and then taking a stance). A good debate is always cool.

The show will not always have the same host(s). We'll switch it up and try to get on some kind of schedule so that everyone on the team gets airtime, but also gets a break. For example, Bob and Joe will host the show some weeks, and Tim and Larry will host the show other weeks. The show will be recorded via Skype or some other VoIP program, so you can do it from your home. You will need to have your own microphone and a good Internet connection, of course.

The show will be hosted on VentureBreak. It will have its own special archive page, but new episodes will also appear among our other coverage.

We're also open to having multiple individual shows, so if you want to be the star of your own show, and you have something to tell the world, I believe we can work something out.

Who We're Looking For:

  • We need several hosts with personalities willing to work together and commit to recording shows on a regular basis. You don't have to be a professional voice actor, but you need to have a public-friendly voice (not monotone, etc). A sense of humor is a big plus. You have something to say—and we have an audience and a platform that we'd love to share with you.
  • We will need at least one producer—someone to remotely record, edit, and produce the show's audio. We're not looking for anything too crazy—you'll just be adding music, taking out long pauses, etc. You'll also be in charge of uploading the file to our site and publishing the blog post for the show.
We will of course give our hosts and producer(s) the credit they deserve, linking back to their sites and promoting them across ours.

I'm very excited to get back into the podcasting game, and I think we can make it work this time. Anyone who worked with us on our last podcast project is of course welcome to join us with this one.
