Via Western Sound:
“Western Sound, an audio production company based in Los Angeles, Calif., has an production fellowship program for people starting their careers in audio and podcasting.
What is a production fellowship program? It’s just like an internship program, but instead of being aimed at students and for college credit, it’s paid and for anyone starting their career in audio.
Our fellowship program is designed to give you editorial, production and business training to help start your career in podcasting. We encourage people from diverse backgrounds to apply (people of color, women, gender non-binary, LGBTQ, immigrants, underrepresented regions / areas / cultures).
Our apprenticeship program will teach you a lot about:
What makes a great podcast
How to make great podcasts, including field recording, interviewing and producing
The logistics that go into podcast production
The overall podcast industry
You’ll work directly with our team of producers and help make our shows. You’ll gain real production experience, including: research and reporting, field producing, cutting tape, and mixing. You’ll learn about the business side and why we make the shows we do. You’ll help us keep our office running smoothly (not gonna lie, there’s some housekeeping and gophering too). You’ll also produce for our in-house podcast.
At the end of our fellowship program, you’ll have made at least one thing for your reel and have valuable new experiences you’ll take with you to your next job application.”
