Internship 1:  the rabble podcast network

If you are enthusiastic about audio, radio and podcast production, news and current affairs, and you want to be part of creating a stable, strong, and independent media in Canada — well, you could be the next rpn intern!

As an intern at the rabble podcast network, you will spend eight hours a week working with the rpn’s executive producer mixing and hosting podcasts, scouting material, conceiving promotional ideas for the network, and sending out a weekly newsletter to the rpn mailing list.

You will have the opportunity to produce original material, learn audio editing skills (or hone the ones you have), and to work closely with a group of committed mediaproducers and journalists at one of Canada’s most innovative media websites.

This internship opportunity involves researching activist tools to help expand this long-anticipated section of the rabble.ca, networking with social change organizations across Canada, as well as drafting and curating toolkit articles.
