Pineapple Street Media is a podcast production company based in Brooklyn. Our shows include Missing Richard Simmons, Heaven’s Gate, Still Processing, Women of the Hour, Stay Tuned with Preet Bharara, Never Before with Janet Mock, and more. We don’t have a particular house style and that variation in content and tone is part of what makes working at Pineapple Street Media unique, challenging, and exciting.
We strive for excellence, and so far five of our shows have hit #1 on the Apple Podcast charts. Because the podcasting industry too often creates barriers to aspiring producers of color and non-binary people, Pineapple Street Media is offering our first-ever Pineapple Fellowship. The fellowship is open to all who identify as part of an under-represented group in podcasting. Areas of under-representation may include—but are not limited to—race, ethnicity, economic background, sexual orientation and disability.
This full-time, project-based, producer-in-residence position is open to those looking to transition into an audio production career. You will work on a deeply produced and reported documentary series. We will consider any level of experience, but prefer to work with someone with some sort of audio editing background.
The Pineapple fellowship starts in the summer of 2018, exact dates to be determined based on your schedule and ours. Fellows receive a stipend of $2,500 per month. In addition to production experience, fellows have weekly mentorship meetings with Pineapple staff producers and editors. We will also help connect you with people in the industry.
