I already had my Skype interview. What was scheduled for 15-20min turned into 1 hr. Very excited about this.
So, does everyone still have their Number stations VID’s that Youtube pulled as soon as you’ve uploaded them up? Hopefully, y’all didn’t delete them. Hi-hi…
This is so very cool. I am very new to SW listening but stumbled into the numbers stations and have found them to be completely fascinating. I have tuned to the so called “cuban numbers” station many times and listened in complete awe that they weren’t just another internet myth. I’m very excited to hear there will be a TV series about this compelling topic.
I’m dusting off my resume hi hi.
is this geared to the US only or can other countries apply?
Rich, it is my understand that this is open to anyone on the planet!
Keep in mind, my one (serious) reservation about this series would be a fear that it’s only geared toward the sensational and conspiracy side of things. Even the casting people wouldn’t know this because they’re simply head hunters of sorts for the network (looking for a certain type of person). Time will tell.
You’re right, Dave. I’ll send him a message.
Chris Smolenski would be the obvious choice. Does he know about this?
