LPM Podcast Incubator

The LPM podcast incubator is designed to make the medium accessible to people in our community who have great ideas but aren’t sure how to make them happen: People who can’t afford studio time or attend all-day training sessions. People who don’t usually see themselves represented in public media. We’re particularly interested in shows made by and for people of color, LGBTQ folks, immigrants and people of marginalized genders.

Who should apply?

You, if you have an idea for a podcast that fits our mission: “Louisville Public Media informs, inspires and empowers through independent news, music, education and experiences that reflect our diverse community.” (And if you have time to learn podcasting and make a podcast!) 

How do I apply?

Fill out this form! Nothing fancy, just a sentence or two for each answer, and we’ll follow up from there.

What will happen if I’m selected?

Our producers will help you develop your idea into a plan, and teach you how to start recording episodes. Then, we’ll help you edit them into a full season. We’ll set a launch date, launch your show and promote it with listings on our website, on NPR.org and in all the podcast apps. At the end of your season, you will own everything you made, and you’ll have the knowledge to keep the show going on your own if you choose.

The podcast incubator is made possible with support from The Community Foundation of LouisvilleThe Eyecare Institute’s Butchertown Clinical TrialsPodchaser and Rankings IO.

LPM Podcast Internship

The LPM Podcast Internship is designed for a person of color and/or marginalized gender who wants to learn how to edit and produce podcasts. The objective is to make the audio and podcast production industry more inclusive of underrepresented groups. This internship can be for college credit, but is meant to be accessible to non-students with other work or family obligations.

Length of internship: Six months

Compensation: $15 hourly

Schedule: Flexible, working 15-20 hours per week, remotely. The intern should have reliable internet access in their home or workspace.

Goals: The intern will learn to create a podcast episode, which includes mixing music, intros, outros and content. They will learn to identify the best parts of an episode and the parts that don’t work and should be cut. They will develop an ear for pacing, and what makes a good episode opening/closing. They will learn to upload and publish podcast episodes, and how to create audio and video promos.

If you’re interested in this internship, please contact Laura Ellis at lellis@louisvillepublicmedia.org to learn more!

LPM Podcast Distribution

LPM podcast distribution partnerships are designed for people who are already producing their show and want LPM to handle the logistics of getting them out into the world. Under this model, you submit finished episodes, and we publish them on the podcast apps, on our website and on NPR.org.

If you make a podcast (or are planning to launch one) and you want to know more about partnering with LPM for distribution, contact Laura Ellis at lellis@louisvillepublicmedia.org.
