Your money-making expert. Financial journalist, TV and radio personality.
Fancy making some cash from all those hours of bingeing on Netflix or streaming music? Do you have a pop culture passion that you’d love to teach? Know exactly how many goals Mo Salah has scored in the Premier League and how long he’s been at Liverpool?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then we have the job for you!
With so many must-see TV shows, films and sports games plus new music and podcasts, there’s now a job for just that.
Bark.com are looking for people who love all things media and would love to get paid to talk about their favourite things.
To become a Pop Culture Coach, you will need to demonstrate your knowledge in an initial briefing with your client. And if your client wants ‘on call’ coaching you need to make sure you are available and responsive when your client is out and about and needs extra help.
The service launches in light of the new Game of Thrones season showing, which can take over 2 days and 17 hours to catch up on. You job is to get your client up to speed with the latest trends to either impress or engage in small talk.
As a Pop Culture Coach you’ll be paid around £35 an hour. However, as with all Bark.com services the provider sets the price. Clients can opt for an additional ‘on-call’ service, where a customer can text a Coach for an instant conversation saviour.
People who sign up as a Pop Culture Coach must be up-to-date with their expert series or topic and confident enough to share their knowledge with potential clients.
Professional Pop Culture Coaches must be able to demonstrate their knowledge in an initial briefing with the client.

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 the 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, Game of Thrones or Killing Eve. If you have knowledge on a pop culture topic, sign up!”
