Looking for producers for archival audio podcast

From the good people at Pop Up Archive.

Hi radio people!

Pop Up Archive is looking for freelancers to work on our new podcast, Popcast. (If you're on the radiogines list, apologies for the repeat email.) 

Popcast tells tiny stories about the past, resurfacing archival audio and reinterpreting it. Past episodes include a posthumous astrological reading of Sylvia Plath, and the tale of a psychobilly song that astronauts banned from NASA shuttle missions. You can listen to the six episodes of the first season here: https://soundcloud.com/popuparchive

We made the first season with Eliza Smith, who is now full time at Snap Judgment, so we’re looking to open up the show to all archive-loving producers. Most stories will be in the 4-7 minute range, to be released over the summer (and beyond, we hope). The pieces are straightforward to create: they feature archival clips with some light narration and sound design. And we'll pay you!

If you’re interested in making a story for Popcast, shoot me an email at emily@popuparchive explaining why you’re interested, and include a link to your previous work. If you have a piece of archival audio in mind (check out popuparchive.com/search for inspiration), feel free to suggest it. I also work with producers to help them find content in the archive. 

Looking forward to hearing from you!
