Seeking a podcaster / audio editor!

InWithForward is looking for a freelance audio editor / podcaster to help us make clear and compelling podcasts on critical social issues of the day — like, what is justice? And, how do we grieve? You’ll be responsible for recording, editing, and mixing a series of podcasts that give voice to people, ideas and practices on the margins.

 

About the role

  • Shape the tone, sound, story arc of podcasts
  • Provide feedback and ideas on scripts
  • Assist in all aspects of podcast recording, mixing, and editing
  • Ensure a high level of audio quality and consistency
  • Publish podcasts
  • Help create social assets for podcast (Audiograms, Instagram Posts)
  • Manage the workflow and production of multiple podcasts

About you

  • You’re the kind of person who laughs, cries, yells, nods and shakes your head to podcasts.
  • You have a deep appreciation for storytelling, and are both a connoisseur of compelling narratives and a maker of them.
  • You are reflective and reflexive about your social location, and how that shapes the stories you tell.
  • Deadlines bring out the best, not the worst in you.
  • You’re energized by working in teams, and producing high-quality products that push boundaries, tell meaningful stories, and challenge what we think we know.
  • You’ve got a keen ear for detail.

About your skills

We’re looking for folks with / who are …

  • Two or more years of experience in audio editing (Audition) a must, and video editing (Premiere) would be a plus
  • Practiced storytellers with a portfolio of crafting narratives and audio stories
  • Discerning, lateral thinkers with a penchant for collaboration
  • Close attention to detail
  • Dependable, self-starters
  • We are committed to curating a team with a blend of lived experiences, from different cultural and racial backgrounds, and intersectional identities, creating an environment where we can bring our whole selves to the creative process!

Nuts and bolts
