Life, Listened Podcast Seeks Pregnant Talent

Life, Listened is a podcast created by Meagan Francis and Sarah Powers, the creative team behind The Mom Hour. They are seeking pregnant talent to help with a podcast project. Life, Listened is creating a new podcast focused on the journey to motherhood – and they want to feature your story.

We are seeking a diverse cast in the first and second trimesters of pregnancy, with an EDD no earlier than April 1, 2019. Our project will share stories from diverse backgrounds, locations, lifestyles and socioeconomic status, both first-time and veteran parents. Chosen participants will receive a stipend to compensate them for telling their stories. Women of color especially are encouraged to apply.

Those who are interested, and who fit the criteria, can apply on the Life, Listened website by filling out a form.

Here are a few things to know before you apply:

Life, Listened will provide the audio recording equipment (microphone and headphones) as well as coaching on how to get great sound in a home studio. You need to provide a laptop or desktop computer (no tablets or mobile devices) and be willing to download free software in order to capture your recordings. You will also need a good Wi-Fi connection for recorded interviews.

This project will require you to create a 10-20 minute recording weekly (on your own schedule) documenting your pregnancy journey, as well as participate in bimonthly hour-long interviews throughout your pregnancy. Life, Listened will also ask you to check in during your first two months postpartum with an interview and 2-3 solo recordings.

For full details, visit the Life, Listened website. If everything there sounds good, then you should submit your application and sample recording no later than January 16, 2019.
