FUS Podcast Specialist

(Part time, 15 hours a week, one year with potential to continue)

The primary goal of this position is to build an audio podcast library made up of content from FUS events, archives and worship services, including materials generated from the many local progressive non-profits we’ve worked with in the past. These materials will reflect our FUS values, vision of ministry, mission, bond, principles and sources.

FUS understands more people are receiving information over laptops, smart phones, and computers hooked directly into a home television. As we move to stream worship services live over the internet, we also see the potential of podcasts to allow people to enjoy our message on their own time, and in their own space.  Links to the podcasts generated by this position will be shared with our members by weekly bulletin, with our community over social media, and with the public in over a podcast library website.  They will also stream worldwide over the internet on WMUU 102.9 FM.

Some of the tasks included in this position include:

  • Editing FUS services into a usable audio format, including a standard introduction and closing, and promotion of WMUU at 102.9 FM and streaming the web.
  • Editing past materials from the FUS archives, including past ‘fireside talks’, ruminations on Frank Lloyd Wright, and other materials of interest
  • Recording FUS ministers and staff in social justice events, including interviews or news on current items of the day.
  • Working with non-profits to record and edit their own monthly podcasts at a cost of $40 per session.  For this, we will offer studio space, editing, posting podcast to a website, and a link they can share on social media. 

The applicant should have a strong background in digital audio, studio recording, and creation of podcasts.  They should be able to edit audio, communicate effectively with progressive leaders, and work independently.  The position will report to the FUS COO.

This position exists for one year, with possibility of being extended.  The pay is $13.00 an hour, with minimum of 15 hours each week.  The hours are flexible, and can be fitted to match the applicant’s schedule.  There is a possibility of additional hours in this or other FUS positions. Work will be performed at FUS, at our 122 state street studios, or in the field. 

To apply, send your resume with a one page description of relevant work experience to COO Andy Gussert, First Unitarian Society, 900 University Bay Drive, Madison, WI 53705 (andyg@fusmadison.org ). Review of applications will continue until position is filled; preference will be given to applications received by July 25th, 2014.
