Help us launch the Big Cat Country podcast

New, comments

We’re looking for our founding lineup.

NFL: New York Jets at Jacksonville Jaguars Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

Hi, I’m John Gennaro, EP of SB Nation Team Brands Podcasts, and I’m looking for a few good Jacksonville Jaguars podcasters.

To date, we’ve launched 28 NFL podcasts as a part of the Vox Media Podcast Network. Podcasts and podcasters that join our network enjoy a level of promotion that is generally unmatched and could only be provided by SB Nation, with our experience and expertise in giving a voice to the fan.

Now, we’re looking to launch a podcast that represents the Big Cat Country community and we need your help. The same type of great coverage and entertainment that you’ve come to expect from this site is what we should expect from the podcast that we build.

About SB Nation team podcasts…

We’re building our Big Cat Country podcast in the model of our site: A place to go to every day for the latest news, opinions, and insight. A place with a diverse range of voices that each cover the team in their own, unique way.

That means that we’re looking for more than one show for the Big Cat Country podcast (and more than one show for all of SB Nation’s team brand podcasts.)

Keep reading to find out if this may be the right opportunity for you.

What are we looking for?

We’re looking for people who can help Big Cat Country take podcasting to the next level. That means people who want to bring their shows to Big Cat Country, or who can demonstrate their ability to build a show about the Jaguars.

And right now, the spots are open. Whether you want to do previews, recaps, deep analysis, or something weird and uniquely for the Big Cat Country community, it makes sense to get in on the ground floor. We don’t have room for an infinite number of shows.

What skills and qualifications should you have?

We’re looking for people who:

  • Have a passion for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
  • Ideally already enjoy reading, commenting, and participating in the Big Cat Country community.
  • Have experience recording, editing, and producing podcasts.
  • Are self-starters and comfortable meeting deadlines.
  • Have a vision for how to carve out a special space in Big Cat Country’s podcast lineup.

What do we pay?

Podcasting contributors who join Big Cat Country will be paid monthly stipends related to their monthly downloads.

How do you apply?

Please send a cover letter and a podcast sample to SB Nation’s talent manager for team brands, Jeanna Thomas, at jeanna.thomas@sbnation.com. You will not be considered for this role unless you submit both items. If you have an idea for a new Jaguars show you’d want to start as part of the Big Cat Country podcast, please include it in your cover letter. You can also hit Jeanna up with any questions about the position, Big Cat Country, or SB Nation in general.

What if I’m interested but don’t have a podcasting sample?

If you’re not sure if your background and experience align with what we’re asking for above, but you believe you have the potential to thrive in this role, we encourage you to apply. You don’t need a professional studio to record a podcasting sample--sometimes recording a few minutes on your phone can be enough.
