- Interns give feedback in editorial meetings, gather research, and track listener responses.
- Pitch guest and episode ideas, sit in on tapings, and select and cut tape in Pro Tools.
- Create and upload content to our social media pages, newsletter, and website.
- Perform other administrative tasks to support the show’s weekly production process.
- There are no specific requirements except excitement for long-form, complex conversations on a wide range of topics, but some familiarity with the show is useful.
- We’re a small team, so comfort working collaboratively and independently is a plus.
- Study or previous experience in journalism and/or radio production is valuable, but not necessary.
