PODCAST PRODUCERS FOCUSED ON SCIENCE (job) by Bear Guerra

Via NPR:

“Are you highly curious?  Do you have the energy for daily journalism and an ear for audio storytelling? If you’re answering ‘yes’, to both of these questions, you may be the person we are looking for to help us launch a brand new daily podcast this year.

This smart, provocative, fun, daily podcast - from NPR’s Science Desk - tells listeners something they probably didn’t know in under ten minutes.  This will be short-form, digital first content that reaches listeners where they are, whether it’s on smart speakers, new audio on-demand choices in cars or your favorite podcast app.  

We’re looking for a producer who can do it all: pitch smart and engaging episodes; craft compelling episodes; mentor junior producers on story telling style; use sound in unexpected ways; and help in developing the final format and shape of the content.  Consider joining a talented, award-winning science team that aspires to great storytelling both on air and online.”

“We currently accept both stand-alone and documentary series. A stand-alone audio documentary may be either a one-off program or a single or multi-part documentary episode from a series (i.e. The Problem We All Live With from This American Life) that stands on its own as a documentary on a single subject or theme. A series is comprised of multiple episodes, conceived and constructed with a beginning and an end, with all the episodes being listened in order to create a complete story and/or support a complete theme (i.e. NYT's Caliphate, Serial, LA Times' Dirty John, APM’s In the Dark).

RADIO REPORTERS (job) by Bear Guerra

Via KQED:

“The Bay Area and California are in an unprecedented housing affordability crisis. Its root causes run deep in the state’s policy history and the consequences of those policies continue to be exacerbated even today. KQED is expanding its coverage of this important regional and statewide issue. This reporter will will be the frontline reporter on our ongoing coverage as well as a key player in creating a seasonal podcast and special investigative project. Meanwhile, the reporter would be part of a team that would break news and pursuing ongoing coverage of housing in the region and beyond.

This position plays a critical role in the KQED newsroom, as our only reporter devoted to housing coverage and the crisis in affordability. The reporter will work on a three-person team, with a senior editor and producer, to produce ongoing coverage as well as special projects. The reporting should be multi-platform and must be as strong digitally as it is in the radio and audio space.

The reporter will be expected to work closely with The California Report, our statewide radio show and digital presence as well as contribute work that takes local stories that have national resonance. This person would ideally be equally comfortable reporting on legislative housing bills as crafting a narrative feature that tells a compelling, personal narrative.”
