This proposal seeks to renew the funding for WAGDIE Weekly, which has had 6 months of successful Twitters Spaces / Podcast episodes since its inception. In addition, this proposal seeks to update the terms to reflect the reduction from 3 hosts to 2.
The show has been hosted every Tuesday at 8PM EST on https://twitter.com/wagdieweekly for more than 26 consecutive weeks, and this proposal seeks to fund it for an additional 24 episodes (bringing to 50 total).
The spaces provides an easy recap opportunity for community members who don’t have time to engage with the project at all levels. It also serves as a gathering point for the WAGDIE community to discuss its independent initiatives, and various happenings apart from the core of the project.
WAGDIE is an incredibly expansive experience and having this spaces / podcast format makes things a lot easier to digest for those with less time. It has been quite successful since its outset, and will continue to be a valuable aspect of the community’s development.
Twitter for the live show.
Podbean for distribution across Spotify, Apple, and major podcasting services.
WAGDIE Weekly has already produced 27 episodes and will continue to operate without change. @KingOffling and @josiah.peace create notes for their episode throughout the week, and then host a Twitter Spaces for approximately 1hr on Tuesdays at 8PM EST. Sometime after completion, the show is ripped from Twitter, edited, and sent to syndication.
The show already exists, and will continue uninterrupted.
We are requesting $75 per person, per episode ($150 total per episode).
This increase per host is to reflect the increased workload since losing one co-host.
This proposal requires $3500 to execute the planned 24 episodes.
The entire amount shall be distributed to wagdiepodcast.eth for holding.
Half will be distributed to hosts at approval, half after episode 44 is complete.
