Hiya listeners, readers and soon-to-be-viewers of everything The Man Who Ate the Town.
As you probably know, Kelly Bone hasn’t been on the podcast in a while. She has not left the podcast. She is still very much the cohost of the show. What she has been doing is working a lot more, she got injured a few weeks back and she’s working on a major life and work project in which she has asked for a little time off. So, with her permission, I’m going to look for a “stand-in” to help me with the podcast until she is able to return.
What am I looking for in a cohost? Well, you need to know about food. Preferably you have at least a slight knowledge of the food scene here in Winston-Salem, or maybe even another town. But, we obviously talk about food and want to make sure that the host(s) are at least as knowledgeable as I am, which could be perceived to be “not much.”
You have to be able to record during the day. Right now, I try to record on Mondays around 3 pm, however, I can do it on Tuesday early afternoon as well. Monday is my preference.
This is a non-paid gig. I make very little money doing what I do and Kelly is a “volunteer.” Any prospective cohosts would need to be as well. You may get some perks but that’s not guaranteed.
This is on an “as-needed” timeline. The moment Kelly is back in the game, the seat is hers. Now, prospective cohosts may be asked to join as a three-person crew, but that isn’t guaranteed.
Prospects must be willing to be on mic, potentially on camera and do some research for the show. It’s not incredibly time-consuming but I do need the cohost(s) to come prepared.
I don’t know how long this gig will go on. I am willing to break it up among several cohosts but my preference is that it be one person willing to sit in.
I don’t care if you are male or female. Just be a good match.
If you have any questions, comments, ideas, or suggestions as to cohosts, send me an email.
Thank you in advance!!
