We're on the hunt for heartfelt, visceral stories. Got one to share?
WHAT DO WE LOOK FOR?
We look for stories that have a sense of pull and suspense, that lead into a series of events that trigger a more lucid awareness of our shared humility. Put otherwise, very sincere stories about feeling like a fake - and what happened next. There is no single category that we try to fill. So far, we've spoken to authors finding their voice, parents reconciling themselves, the recently heartbroken, the secretly alienated, the accidentally lonesome, the deliberately brazen - and everything in between. These are people that span all age, geography and lifestyle.
WHAT'S THE TONE?
Feel comfortable to say whatever you’d like. We don’t filter for swearing or brutal honesty. Just be yourself, as you are. Please don't put on a "radio voice" or share the press release version of yourself.
what story is best?
A story that you can tell us in detail that captures a moment in time where you felt like a total fraud. Something unexpected or surprising is always best that ties into everyday life. Take us on the journey with you in as much detail as possible.
Where do you record?
We record the majority of our interviews in downtown Toronto live in studio. Having said that, we are starting to offer a Skype alternative for those guests who are unable to be present. Our recording location is comfortable and cool with more parking and coffee than you can shake a stick at.
What gear do you use?
This ain't your grandmother's podcast. We use 3 Audio Technica AT2020 studio microphones for our interviews into a Steinberg UR44 interface running Hindenburg Pro for recording and editing. We also use a Aphex Microphone X for other voiceovers. Happy now? Great.
how do i SEE IF THIS CAN WORK?
Send us a note using the form below so that we can chat about you and your story to see if there's a mutual fit.
what happens after recording?
We pause, reflect, and figure out the underlying story. We’ll notify you a week before it goes live with suggestions on how to share with your social media and mailing list.
