Our Americana is an independent podcast that is seeking 1-2 interns to help grow its audience and build a stronger, more consistent cross-channel social media presence.

Our Americana is a weekly podcast that explores the culture and stories of Small Town America, one town at a time, through conversations with locals. The podcast is produced and hosted entirely by me. So, I'm looking for an intern who is willing to take on multiple production and research roles. This intern will have the opportunity to participate in and grow a podcast in a very active way, while learning about all aspects of podcast production and marketing. This is not a coffee-run internship.

This is a new, small, home-based operation. The perks are a greater accountability in its growth and the opportunity to grow not only the podcast, but within the podcast. The downsides are a lack of resources. Interns will have to use their own computers, and will be working from my home office (aka dining room table).
