Podcast Producer: Object of Sound
Part time, contract
Remote


Following a successful 18-episode inaugural season, Object of Sound, hosted by poet and critic Hanif Abdurraqib, will return for a second season launching on June 18. We seek a highly experienced audio Producer with knowledge of contemporary music and culture to help us bring our second season to new heights.

Object of Sound features high profile artists and cultural luminaries in conversation around timely topics and the creative process. Our ideal candidate has a track record for crafting conversations that make listeners care about the issues covered. Extensive experience facilitating and editing remote-recorded interviews is a must. Most of all, we seek a creative collaborator who will bring fresh ideas, their unique perspective, drive, and expertise to our team.

This is a part time contract position. Competitive day rate commensurate with experience.

"This is not your average music-discussion podcast. In the hands of the poet and critic Hanif Abdurraqib, experiences of music become memoirs [...] Abdurraqib’s encyclopedic love and understanding of music is infectious, and applied with delicate care."
-The New York Times

"The resulting interviews feel intentional and expansive, and Abdurraqib relishes these opportunities to burrow into the underexplored aspects of an artist’s oeuvre and career, and locate where their “shared investments” lie."
-Vanity Fair

Manage recording and editing for 18 episodes
