Do you consider yourself a pop culture king or queen? Are you caught up on Netflix’s latest binge-worthy box set and know who currently holds the number one spot in the top 40 charts?
If you answered yes to any of those, you might be able to earn yourself some cash off the back of it.
That’s because, online local services marketplace, Bark.com, has launched a Pop Culture Coaching Service for people who need help preparing for small talk at events, or when socialising and dating.
Members of the public can hire themselves a coach to get them up to speed with all the latest trends.
The service has launched in time for the release of the new season of Game of Thrones, which can take over two days and 17 hours to catch up on if every episode was watched.
But it’s not all about television, those hiring a coach will be able to choose to learn about a selection of movies, sports, music or a mixture of general knowledge.
It’s expected the service will cost £35 an hour, based on similar services, however the provider will ultimately be responsible for setting the price.
Clients can also opt to pay for an additional ‘on-call’ service, where they can text a coach for an instant conversation starter.
Kai Feller, Bark.com co-founder, said: “With so much media for us to consume, it can almost feel overwhelming to not only keep up with it all, but to be seen to have an opinion, there are only 24 hours in a day after all.
“We hope that this new service can help ease some of the anxieties associated with having to socialise and always needing to find something to talk about.
“This is a dream job for sport or TV buffs. You’re literally getting paid to talk about your favourite things, whether it be the Premier League, the Masters or Killing Eve. If you have a knowledge on a pop culture topic, sign up!”
Those keen to become a Pop Culture Coach, must be able to demonstrate their knowledge in an initial briefing with the client. You can sign up by visiting https://www.bark.com/en/gb/pop-culture-coaches/
