#FIRST - CASTING CALL

We’re making a brand new podcast for teenagers for BBC Sounds.

And we want 15-21 year olds to tell us about the first time a momentous event happened to you.

If you’ve experienced any of the following and are happy to share your story with us, please get in touch.

#FirstFestivalDisaster - Have you ever had that #First festival disaster which has put you off festivals for life? Lost your mates? Got stuck in mud? Missed your favourite band?

#FirstDateDisaster - Do you cringe at the memory of your #First ever date?

#FirstAdultingFail - Do you remember that moment when you thought you were an adult, but still needed a parental shoulder to cry on? Maybe the first time you went on holiday alone and it all went wrong? Did you crash the car the first time you drove after you passed your test? Set off the fire alarms the #first time you tried to cook a meal?

#FirstSocialMediaBurn - Tell us about the #First time you were burned or trolled on Social Media - we want stories of an innocent post or email that went dramatically wrong.

#FirstUnhealthyObsession - Have you suffered from an obsession? For a friend, a celebrity, a video game, a TV show, food? How did you break the habit?

#FirstBigFallOut - What was it like when you first fell out with someone? Did you ever manage to rebuild the bridges?

#FirstTimeIFoundOutMyParentsWereSeparating -  Can you remember what you were doing when they told you? How did it make you feel?

 #FirstHangover - Was your #First hangover so extreme you can still remember it to this day? What happened the first time you got drunk?

#FirstSpiritualRevelation - From finding God, to turning your back on your parents’ religion - what story do you have to tell about your experience of faith?

#FirstGrief - Can you remember your #First experience of losing someone you loved?

If you would like to apply, please email us with your name, age, contact number and a bit more information about your first time experience to casting@missile.digital

And if you’ve had a unique first-time experience on a topic that we haven’t mentioned here, we would still like to hear all about it.

The application deadline has now been extended to 30th May 2019.

If you are aged under 18, please get your parents permission before completing this application form and contacting us.
