Israel Story is a documentary storytelling radio show/podcast, and we’re looking for interns for the English version of our show. Now’s especially exciting time to join— we recently launched our second English season in co-production with Tablet Magazine, and distributed by PRX!
For this position, you could choose to live in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv-Yafo. Either way, you’ll get to explore the country as you help us find and tell the stories of Israel’s most interesting characters.
This position begins in February, and is a 4-5 month commitment, which could lead to a longer-term, paid job. The position is unpaid, but outside funding may be available, for instance via a Masa grant.
Candidates with experience in audio production, production logistics, storytelling, multimedia production, journalism, and/or social media are strongly encouraged to apply.
Please send a cover letter, resume, and links for 2-3 examples of your work to: firstname.lastname@example.org
About Israel Story:
Israel Story is one of the most popular national radio shows in Israel, and the country’s first storytelling podcast of its kind. Hosted by Mishy Harman, Israel Story shines a light on the big and little dramas that comprise life in Israel, amplifying voices that are rarely heard in the mainstream media. Israel Story recently branched out into English, co-producing its first English season with Tablet Magazine, and now a second season (in English) with Tablet and the public-radio powerhouse PRX. The show has gotten a lot of tremendously positive attention–it was featured in the New York Times, an episode was selected as one of the top 10 best podcast episodes of 2014, and stories from the first season have been heard on NPR stations across the US, including as the Mother’s Day special on WNYC. Our stories have been featured on award-winning nationally syndicated shows like ‘Radiolab,’ ‘Snap Judgment,’ and ‘To the Best of Our Knowledge‘.
