As Price Tags blog does more PriceTalks podcasts, we’re looking for more contributors to join the team. If you have a knack for organization, media production, and sharing engaging content, this might be for you.

Here are the basic requirements about this unique opportunity:

  • You must be a resident of the Metro Vancouver region
  • Familiarity with Zoom recorders and common audio equipment is a must
  • Some audio-editing experience (ie. Adobe Premiere, Audacity), or comfort with a wide range of computer platforms and software, and a willingness to learn

We usually record about once a week, typically on weekends at the Inspiration Lab at the Vancouver Public central branch, with occasional special events at other locations.

We’d like to do more editing and production with the interviews, more on-location recording, and shorter items on particular topics. Indeed, we’d look to new team members for ideas and innovation.

Depending on the candidate(s), interest and experience level, and availability, this could be one or more volunteer roles with possibility of honouraria, or a paid contract.

Interested?  Let us know at pricetags (at) shaw (dot) ca.
