THE ANTIDOTE SENIOR PRODUCER (REMOTE)
Posted here: · Expires:
Fully remote: working with a USA-based team at American Public Media.
Let’s just say it how it is: the world is a dumpster fire and the aftermath of 2020 - and the continuing dramas of 2022 - have us all running around with smoke in our hair. None of us want more bad news, so APM Studios is bringing joy - especially Black joy - through one of our new podcasts, The Antidote.
We’re looking for a senior producer to lead this weekly show at a time when we all need something to laugh and smile about. You’ll appreciate popular culture, keep up with the news, enjoy working with a creative team, and get excited about exploring ways to engage the audience and build community.
This is a six-month contract position.
Here’s a taste of what you’ll be doing:
- Lead ideation and concept brainstorming for episode segments
- Maintain show calendar, oversee editorial planning and communicate with wider APM Studios on upcoming guests and show segments
- Manage workload and set expectations of Producer or Associate Producer
- Liaise with social, marketing and sponsorship teams on potential opportunities for partnerships and amplification of show content
- Write and oversee scripts and show prep to maintain the editorial integrity of the show
- Talent management: Be the higher level liaison for the hosts should issues arise
- Develop show sound and identity: Creative thinking around sound design, guest ideas, and use of audience engagement
- Assist in the hiring and onboarding of a Producer or Associate Producer and other team members as needed
- Provide guidance and notes on episode lay-up show with interviews, music, archive and any sound design
- Review mix for any issues
- Gather and implement feedback notes before final pass
- Confirm successful upload of episodes and troubleshoot any problems
- Monitor social media and audience feedback channels. Flag anything that needs attention, and think about how listener ideas can be added to the show.
