Futuro Media’s CEO and Executive Director Erika Dilday: Journalists Can Help People Tell Their Own Stories by Talking Less, Listening More
September 16, 2020 / Nieman Reports
Futuro Studios is a new podcast and content studio out of Futuro Media—an independent non-profit media organization that explores and gives voice to the diversity of the American experience. We’re focusing on creating new narrative, documentary podcasts that tell Latino and POC stories, from culture and music to history and politics. Futuro Studios has between 3-5 new podcasts slated for production and release in Fall/Winter 2020 across a broad range of subjects.
We want self-starters to be part of the team working to aid in the production and launch of our new podcasts. The staff is small, so there is a lot of room to do meaningful work.
Futuro Studios accepts interns for the Spring, Summer and Fall terms.
In order to apply please submit your applications by the following dates. (However, if you missed the deadline, you can still reach out!):
Spring (mid-January through mid-May) – Apply by November 15
Summer (June through August) – Apply by April 15
Fall (mid-September through mid-December) – Apply by August 1
Send cover a letter outlining how your interests, skills and experiences line up with what Futuro Studios does. Please also email a one-page resume and at least one audio sample of your work that shows off your mastery of style and content. Please submit as links or mp3s.
