A Way Home Together: Stories of the Human Journey

Miranda Shafer

A Way Home Together uses the informal and intimate medium of podcasting to tell personal stories of people on the move, including migrants, refugees and those who have been deeply affected by different cultures. These are stories of the human journey. This is produced for the International Organization for Migration and is part of the TOGETHER campaign.

TOGETHER is a United Nations campaign that promotes respect safety and dignity for migrants and refugees. Launched in September 2016, its aim is to counter the rise in xenophobia and discrimination.

Episcopal News Service Podcast

Miranda Shafer

I worked with the Managing Editor of the Episcopal News Service to produce a series of audio segments about the 2017 Episcopal Youth Event, which is the second largest event in the Episcopal Church

[Episcopal News Service] The Episcopal Youth Event is gearing up for its 2017 conference July 10-14 in Edmond, Oklahoma. In advance of the big event — expected to draw 1,300 teenagers from across the Episcopal Church — Episcopal News Service sent Miranda Shafer to meet with the EYE17 planning committee and produce an audio story about how this year’s theme, “Path to Peace,” came to be.

[Episcopal News Service — Edmond, Oklahoma] The Episcopal Youth Event is underway in Edmond, Oklahoma, from July 10-14. Ninety of 109 Episcopal dioceses are represented and more than 1,400 people — including chaperones, volunteers, chaplains, medical workers — are on the ground here at the University of Central Oklahoma. Episcopal News Service sent Miranda Shafer to Oklahoma to cover the event.

[Episcopal News Service – Oklahoma City, Oklahoma] Episcopal youth attending the 13th annual Episcopal Youth Event took a field trip to the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum on July 12. The memorial and museum honor the victims of the April 19, 1995, bombing and tells the story of that tragic day.

[Episcopal News Service – Edmond, Oklahoma] On the eve of their departure from Oklahoma, 1,300 youth from across the Episcopal Church began strategizing about how they will take the “Path to Peace” message home.

The "How Do We Fix It?" Podcast

Miranda Shafer

“How Do We Fix It?” is a production of Davies Content. The podcast focuses on solutions to problems large and small—everything from politics and policy to credit-card debt. 

The show is hosted by Richard Davies (ABC News) and Jim Meigs (the former editor-in-chief of Popular Mechanics).

As a producer I provide the following skills:

  • Contribute and research ideas for every aspect of the podcast
  • Edit and score each episode    
  • Prepare hosts to interview guests
  • Identify and pre-interview potential interview subjects
  • Build website and produce content for the site
  • Serve as a liaison between the host and the studio
