Apply for an Israel Story Internship

Israel Story is a documentary storytelling radio show/podcast, and the internship program for the English version of our show has three start dates per year: January, May, and September. Now is an especially exciting time to join— we’re currently expanding and working on a new season in co-production with Tablet Magazine, and distributed by PRX!

The position is based in Jerusalem, but you’ll get to explore the country as you help us find and tell the stories of Israel’s most interesting characters.

Get involved in every step of podcast production by joining a team dedicated to high-quality content. Work with your intern-manager to gain the skills and experience you want, while learning how our organization operates.

Positions require a 5 month commitment, which could lead to a longer-term, paid job. The position is unpaid, but transportation is covered and outside funding may be available, for instance via a Masa grant, GroundTruth Project grant, Nathan Cummings Foundation grant, CPB grant, NYU journalism grant, or Pulitzer Center grant.

Candidates with experience in audio production, production logistics, storytelling, multimedia production, musical production, scoring, journalism, and/or social media are strongly encouraged to apply.

Note: A lot of work goes into processing these applications. Please only apply if you plan to accept the position.

To apply, send a cover letter, resume, and links for 2-3 examples of your work to 


About Israel Story:

Israel Story is one of the most popular national radio shows in Israel, and the country’s first storytelling podcast of its kind. Hosted by Mishy Harman, the show shines a light on the big and little dramas that comprise life in Israel, amplifying voices that are rarely heard in the mainstream media. Israel Story branched out in 2015, co-producing its first English season with Tablet Magazine. English seasons are now co-produced with Tablet and the public-radio powerhouse PRX. The show has gotten a lot of tremendously positive attention–it was featured in the New York Times, made lists of top tens like this one, and stories have been heard on NPR stations across the US, including as the Mother’s Day special on WNYC. Our stories have been featured on award-winning nationally syndicated shows like ‘Radiolab,’ ‘Snap Judgment,’ and ‘To the Best of Our Knowledge‘.
