Podcast Presenter

We are currently looking for an enthusiastic and capable individual to join our nascent Podcast Team!

The OWP podcast (‘The Peace Production’) was started in 2019 under the auspices of the Social Media and Marketing division. Until now, the podcast has been the sole responsibility of the division’s director (yours truly), who was tasked with its ideation, execution and production. Given its success, and the fact that is such an effective medium for the discussion and (civil) debate of international affairs, as well as the promotion of the organization’s activities, in formulating our 2020 goals we committed to establishing a permanent team who can afford it the attention it so demands.

The team will consist of two members, one of whom is Andrew Bernstein, a political scientist, OWP correspondent and Adviser for the Americas in the Crisis Index team. You will work in tandem, under my direction, to develop ideas for the podcast, present it and edit it on a fortnightly basis. Since there will be two of you, you will alternate in acting as host. This means that you will only produce one podcast each per month, which is a very manageable workload (I would say around 10 hours per month maximum).

We are looking for someone who meets the following criteria:

  • Enthusiastic about international affairs (if you already work for us, I will take this as a given)
  • A critical thinker
  • A good conversationalist
  • Experience in audio editing/technological capability is desirable but not required.

If you think this sounds like you, and are interested in taking advantage of this exciting opportunity, please send an expression of interest (no need for a cover letter!), as well as your CV, to monica.sager@theowp.org.

Thanks, and stay safe,

Monica Sager
