Crikey has decided it’s time to dip our toes into the brave newish world of podcasting.

Coming to your iPod soon, the dulcet tones of Guy Rundle reporting from the US and the Crikey crew nattering on about stuff.

We have the talent. We have the technology. What we don’t have is a theme song.

Crikey needs brief intro and outro music for its podcasts — 10 seconds of musical genius.  

Is music in your veins? Are you technically minded?

Give Crikey a voice and you could win a spot in Crikey history. And a pair of socks, Tim Flannery’s The Weather Makers, The Chaser Annual, Classic Quarterly Essays, The House of Cards Trilogy DVD, as well as Mr Smith Goes to Washington. And the glory. Oh the glory.

Send your entries in mp3 form to [email protected] with the headline “Crikey music”. Entries close this Friday, 7 March.
