Feeding the Body, Mind and Soul...
...theyʼre all essential to human happiness...and that intersection is where I live. Iʼve never shied away from digging in deep or sharing with friends and strangers exactly what I intuitively feel about whatʼs happening in their lives, and sometimes my advice is something as simple as where to enjoy their next meal.
For the past 20 years, Iʼve worked in television, radio and film...and now I'm bringing you something personal by combining my career with my love of astrology and culinary culture. This combination has never been explored before and will enable me to occupy a new, unique position in todayʼs media landscape.
How Pure Pollino was Born:
“This is not a pie-in-the-sky show. It's grounded, gregarious, thought-provoking conversation and connection. Sixteen years ago, I went through a very dark time, when I lost a significant relationship. It felt like a Mack truck hit me, and climbing back has been one of the biggest struggles of my life. The second struggle was financial - I recently made a major move across the country because my success on paper didn't translate to my bank account. I have always looked to astrology to find my way, and through the years it has offered me comfort and direction, much like the moments of kinship with friends over a meal. Recently I had a PURE moment out at dinner when I found myself holding court, sharing insights on astrology and my latest culinary adventures. Oysters were on the menu, but each person was hungry for the “pearl”...what I saw in their charts about life, love, family and career. Everything that Iʼve learned along the way for myself flowed into others. It was AMAZING!!! And this is how Pure Pollino was born.

Where the Money Goes:
If we meet our initial goal, funds raised will cover the BASIC EXPENSES for a two-hour show twice a week for six months. This includes production of the show (salaries, studio and equipment rental, graphic design and marketing) and efforts to build our audience, which will attract advertisers and secure the long-term viability of the show.
Ideally weʼd like to raise more money, because the numbers weʼve presented are the “start-up” funds and donʼt cover all the time, talent and costs related to the show, so weʼve set some stretch goals, to catapult us forward.
Raise over $50,000 - Compensate the Pure Pollino campaign team appropriately (web designer, graphic designer, photographer, copywriters, video personnel and producers).
Raise over $60,000 - Hire a social media guru to help me connect with listeners daily, promote the show and act as liaison for long-term sustainability and growth.
Raise over $70,000 - Increase the showʼs production to 9 months, and hire “freelance foodies” in integral cities like Paris, London, Tokyo, Vancouver, NYC, Chicago, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Philadelphia to share their culinary experiences on-air.
Raise over $80,000 - Salaries will be paid according to industry standards and we can hire a producer.
Raise over $100,000 - Increase production to 12 months or four days a week.
Raise over $200,000 - Research cloning Valerie and Michelle so Pure Pollino can reach a bigger audience, allowing me to fulfill my BIG dreams of doing this full-time.
Making this campaign successful will add a unique street-savvy voice to the growing global spiritual community. With the audience reach of internet radio and webcasting, we now have unlimited potential to help each other achieve our dreams and share our gifts. Pure Pollino will enable me to touch people's lives in ways that could never happen on terrestrial radio...unless I were Oprah..and, well...I'm not. Yet. :)
