We are a collaborative, small team that believes in the power of honest, non-sensationalized storytelling. The Associate Producer role will include a lot of research. We want someone who is internet savvy but also comfortable calling archival libraries, requesting court documents and going down rabbit holes looking for the right story. The AP will also transcribe interviews, manage the calendar, and participate in group edit sessions. We are looking for someone who is highly organized, proactive in their work style, with a sense of curiosity, and most importantly, a love for podcasts.

  • Not afraid to ask questions, a lifelong learner
  • General sense of curiosity about the world around you

You Should Have:

  • Support the producers in the production of the podcast
  • Research topics for the show
  • Keep a detailed and organized database of all research
  • Participate in group edits for the show

This is a full-time salaried position, commensurate to experience. Benefits include quarterly bonuses, health benefits, 401(k) plan, generous PTO, parental and family leave, along with office snacks and coffee (to be enjoyed in a post-pandemic environment, of course).
