How can a weekly conversational podcast tee up the movies, books and albums you can’t miss and go deep on the pop culture moments everyone is talking about, while also unpacking complex and pressing questions about race, gender and identity in today’s society? As the Producer of “Still Processing,” you’ll be  dedicated to figuring that out.


You are a person with a deep passion for pop culture and the arts — books, music, film, TV and theater and love to tease apart why they matter now.  You’ll work closely with Wesley and Jenna in advance of the taping, and again in the studio — helping to hone their conversation into an episode that will surprise and delight listeners. You’ll work closely with an editor in post production but are happy to function fairly autonomously. You love what Still Processing is but are excited by ways the show can stretch and grow.  


  • Produce the show from start to finish, including research, booking, recording in the field and/or studio, cutting tape, mixing audio, editing with Pro-Tools.

  • Attend multiple pre-production brainstorms with hosts. Distilling information into an outline.

  • Direct the hosts in the studio.

  • Work with editorial figures from both the audio team and The New York Times Magazine.

  • Manage an editorial calendar for the show, and juggle quick turnaround news priorities and longer-term ambitions.

  • Collaborate with the audience development director to dream up creative ways to reach a new audience via social media and other channels.

  • Upload each episode with correct metadata, on and off The New York Times platform.

  • Plan and run several live events a year.



  • 3-5 years experience in audio production.

  • Fluency in audio editing, ideally using Pro Tools.

  • A passion for podcasts and Still Processing.

  • Creative ideas about how to make smart audio shows that will get listeners hooked.

  • Experienced in using social media to drive audiences.

  • A willingness and ability to use data to inform decisions.

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

  • Ability to work autonomously on a tight deadline.

  • Collaborative, can-do attitude.

  • Ability to think about the episode as a whole, and adept at problem solving.
