Miranda Shafer's online portfolio




I am a highly organized freelance producer with expertise in fast-paced multimedia production and podcasting. I combine my experience in writing and editing with strong technical skills: I have been engineering and editing audio using Pro Tools since 2008, and I record on a Zoom H5N digital recorder with either a Shure SM58 microphone or a Rode NTG2 microphone.


What can I do for you? I successfully manage all aspects of production while prioritizing my clients' needs. Below are some of the skills I can provide:  

  • Record audio in the field and remotely
  • Furnish creative ideas for show topics and content delivery
  • Organize and maintain the production calendar and task assignments 
  • Provide voice coaching and technical support to hosts and guest interviewers
  • Instruct remote guests doing interviews via Skype on how to achieve the best sound quality

I currently produce the weekly podcast How Do We Fix It, hosted by ABC News host Richard Davies and former Popular Mechanics editor-in-chief Jim Meigs. I also work with Richard on the for-profit podcast production company Davies Content. Major clients of Davies Content include Cabot Wealth Management and El Paso Times. I also recently produced a podcast for The Richer Life Lab and an episode for the podcast Mother.  

I have been a production assistant for “Selected Shorts,” a nationally broadcast short-story series. I was a producer for WNYC's Talk to Me" series and an assistant producer for The Transition Project, which documented WNYC’s move from the historic Municipal Building to Hudson Square.

I have also interned at Feet in 2 Worlds, where I produced features like the story of one man's beloved family heirloom, a vintage milkshake machine; it won a 2014 Ippies for Best Multimedia Package as part of the series "What I Carried."

I am available for all aspects of production, from podcast conceptualization to recording and editing to tape syncs to distribution and data analysis.
