Naked Hairy Men
In the early days of the Internet, there was a service that would connect random people for online video chats. It was cool! People who wanted to meet new and interesting people could do so from the comfort of their own home. Membership soared and things were going great. Then the Naked Hairy Men (NHM) showed up. Literally.
Because the system didn’t have a way to curate the membership, pretty much anyone could join, and this included the perverts who wanted to have virtual sex with anyone who was willing. So all of a sudden this pretty cool service that was connecting both men and women went bad in a hurry. In the time that it took one innocent conversation to take place, the NHM would be connected to (and traumatize) 20 or 30 innocent users of the service. Needless to say, the service died a quick death.
I tell you this story to tell you that we have learned the lessons of this debacle. We will not allow the agent equivalent of Naked Hairy Men into our referral network. Each agent will be carefully screened and vetted to ensure that they are both fans of the show and committed to the principles of service that we hold dear.
Karen and Gil are both based in Houston, but the reach of the podcast is far beyond the Houston area. If you would like to work with an agent or client who is a fan of the show, we would be thrilled to make the connection!
