The Role

Candidates should be comfortable operating under tight deadlines in a collaborative environment and have a good sense of humor.

This is a project-based role, with a current contract lasting until the end of 2020 with the potential of extending into 2021.

• Pitching stories to cover in daily editorial meetings
• Booking and wrangling guests
• Working with hosts to script each segment of the show
• Tracking down soundbites and clips
• Working with audio engineer and post-production supervisor to make edits
• Help guide episode recordings and coach hosts
• Collaborate with team on creative development of the show format

You Have
• At least 2-3 years experience working in podcasts, ideally a daily podcast
• Outstanding writing and communication skills
• Strong editorial judgement and command of current events, including politics, culture, entertainment, and social media
• Ability to multitask and work creatively in a high-pressure environment
• Some audio editing experience a plus, not a requirement
