Pineapple Street Studios announced an interesting concept – A podcast without a host that’s all based on user submissions. The 11th will premiere on the 11th day of every month in an entirely new form based on whatever people submit.
“Think of it a bit like a mystery box,” they tease on their website. “We want to present original reporting, personal stories, musicals, advice columns, miniseries, concept albums, and whatever else you’ve got. A piece may be 5 minutes, it may be 75 minutes. It may be one episode or three episodes. But every month it will be something new. It’s launching this summer, 2021.”
From @EricMennel on Twitter, Senior Producer of Pineapple Street Media, “Another big thing: No host. We’re trying to change how we center who tells stories and how. Part of that, for us, is trying this without a traditional host. It’s a big experiment, and we need help.”
They’re asking for written pitches to be sent to 11@Pineapple.fm. and to send them all relevant information about your idea along with anything about yourself that would be useful for them to know and they say they will try to respond to every pitch.
