Death, Sex & Money Internship, Summer 2021 (Remote)

Internships New York City, New York


Death, Sex & Money is the podcast about the things we think about a lot and need to talk about more, hosted by Anna Sale. We are looking for a highly motivated intern to join our team while we continue to work remotely during the summer session.

Our interns work with the entire DSM staff to learn how to create content for DSM's podcast feed, social media pages, and website. The successful candidate will be passionate, curious, and informed about a wide range of topics.


There are no specific requirements except a passion for our subjects and for long-form conversations. Study or experience in journalism and/or radio production is valuable, but not required. In short, we are looking for applicants who are motivated, and who are excited to learn. 


Death, Sex & Money’s internship is a hands-on experience. Interns sit in on editorial meetings, gather research, prep interviews, find tape, pitch ideas, create content for our social media pages, write for our website, and learn a variety of tasks involved in producing a podcast. 

If you would like to be considered for this role you must submit your completed application, your resume, and a cover letter explaining why you would like to intern at Death, Sex & Money, and what you hope to gain from your experience. 

In your cover letter, please be sure to answer the following questions:

  • Tell us about an episode of Death, Sex & Money that stood out to you. What made it successful, in your opinion?
  • Describe an episode that you think was less successful. What would have made it stronger?
  • Who do you think would be an excellent guest/what do you think would be an excellent topic for Death, Sex & Money? 
  • What other podcasts do you listen to regularly?
