This Week in Heresy is looking for people and stories from the margins, particularly from the Pagan, Christian, and Progressive communities (although I’m open to anyone from any tradition, creed, or community). I’m particularly looking for those who don’t normally get a voice: people of color, transgender/multi-gender/a-gender individuals, sexual orientations that fall out of the binary, clergy who work in radically inclusive communities, atheists, interfaith workers who work with more than the major religions, those with disabilities, and many other combinations from the margins.
I have the ability to do interviews in person and by phone, Skype, or Google Hangout. Interviews generally range from 45 minutes to 1 hour, and takes about an hour and a half to two hours to record. Interviewees must provide a short (3-5 sentence) biography and are responsible for doing promotion of their interview when it is released via whatever social media channels they are active in, and I normally send a direct link to the interviewee for that purpose once the show is released. I will also promote the interview through my own social media channels which includes: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Google+, reddit, LiveJournal, iTunes, Stitcher, and other podcasting channels.
This is first and foremost a ministry, and unfortunately, I don’t currently make any money from doing this work. If I do happen to make some sort of regular stipend from this podcast in the future, I will try and give a small stipend to interviewees. I will allow, however, under the Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike Creative Commons License, the use of interviews for promotion by individuals and non-profits. Basically, this means that you can use it for whatever you like, you just have to give me the credit for it and link back to the original post. If you need the original file for promotion please let me know. I also do video production, and would be willing to do interviews on video (which includes filming, editing, and finishing) for promotional purposes.
