Producer

We’re hiring a producer to help create a new kind of arts and culture show.

Western Sound is a podcast production company based in Los Angeles. We’re hiring a full-time producer with a proven track record of working independently and making creative & compelling shows that surprise and delight. 

This producer will work in a team at Western Sound to create a new show that finds and tells fun and important stories about the linkages between pop culture and the fabric and texture of American life. You should have a great interest in pop and a unique and interesting lens for analyzing it, critiquing it and connecting it to other parts of our world. We’re looking for someone who’s creative, smart and fast; with experience doing all sorts of podcast producing — finding talent, booking guests, conducting interviews, and structuring stories; a little bit of scoring and sound designing; and thinking creatively about audio and story. 

Western Sound is a small team that works very closely together, so there will be lots of opportunities to grow, learn and collaborate.
