'Good idea, wrapped in a half-assed presentation…', we're keen to work with anyone who can help improve things here.
There's a variety of mutually-beneficial ways in which appropriate others (individuals and organisations) can become involved.
- People. We need to build a good team.
- Publicity. We need exposure.
- Money. It's always useful.
- Anything else? There's probably something we didn't think of.
Simply… we're open to anything which makes this thing genuinely better for all.
Come and work, on a freelance (non-employed) basis, and in some cases with optional 'sweat'-equity.
To-be-filled roles include:
- Manager/coordinator. A savvy head-honcho to set direction and watch over things.
- Evangelist. Someone smart and chatty to handle the marketing, publicity, and social media stuff.
- Program direction. Content to be found, scripted, produced, etcetera.
- Ad sales & management. They won't handle themselves.
- Admin. The usual minutiae, without which it all falls apart.
- Audio production. Sound files to be produced, edited, etcetera.
- Voicework. Content/idents/ads to be recorded.
- Tech. Servers, WordPress, etcetera to be configged and maintained.
There's considerable flexibility in how we split/combine workload and responsibility.
- Participation can be part- or full-time, short and longer-term.
- Some roles may be combined (with one person covering multiple tasks), or shared (with multiple persons handling the tasks).
- Geographic location is irrelevant (because we won't have a central base, and so the work can be done 'from wherever').
We favor longer-term association, which is likely advantageous for both of us.
- We get better service than were we simply just another client.
- You'll get more freedom than in a typical employed role, and the continuity of work should remove much of the usual find-and-get-paid hassle of freelancing.
Interested? You'll need appropriate expertise/experience (or the desire and ability to learn fast).

We have a decent service. What we don't have is enough influence, a large audience.
Our plans are to 'grow organically', by providing good stuff and trying to raise awareness of it in a laid-back manner.
Beyond that, we're open to appropriate deals (anything that's decent and fair) with those who have an existing audience/following to whom they can introduce us.
Investment-only equity participation is also available.
Although we're genuinely none-too-bothered about funding because we can do the job without it, we're open to appropriate deals.
There's probably something we didn't think of.
So if you've something in mind, say so.
Although this is a commercial venture undertaken for profit, there's more to it than just money. So, a word about our ethos…
We utterly reject alliances based on anything other than open & honest, no-nonsense, non-exploitational, authenticity.
If you're curious or serious, this is not a time to be shy.
Tell us what you can do and what you want in return. Let's then agree a sensible deal and get on with it.
