About Our Wavelength

We’re FRQNCY Media, the audio production company for Jane Goodall’s “Hopecast,” Diane von Furstenburg’s “InCharge With DVF,” Coca-Cola’s “Total Refresh,” the Georgia Council on Developmental Disabilities’ “Hidden Voices,” and many others.

FRQNCY is a one-in-a-million blend of innovation, passion, and joy. We offer tailored audio production support including integrated services that take (super-skilled) care of content strategy, market research, production, editing, and  marketing.

Meet Our CEO & Founder

Michelle Khouri is a podcast executive producer and audio entrepreneur. Michelle founded and singlehandedly bootstrapped FRQNCY Media in 2018 with the vision of making the audio industry inclusive and accessible to all voices who want to bring good into this world. She is a first generation Colombian American who comes from a long line of entrepreneurs, musicians, and activists. Get to know her.

Culture and Purpose Come First

FRQNCY is a purpose-driven company. We value alignment, intention, diversity, kindness, determination, and clarity. Every new member of our team shares our same values with equal fervor. We unabashedly work every day to dismantle toxic patriarchal systems, including  Capitalism and white supremacy. You’ll experience that in our day-to-day conversations as we bring to the surface ego-driven, racist, or misogynistic programming that must be called out in order to be healed.

We focus on our people before all else. Which means that all part-time positions are built to open doors for future expansion within the company. If you want to be a part of a company that is changing what it means to work, we should talk.

Oh, and we value joy. We wake up every day wondering how it is we got lucky enough to spend our days surrounded by compelling stories, cradled in beautiful sounds, and entrenched in opportunities to whip up innovative new pieces of audio for our clients.

The Right Fit

Our ideal part-time writer is a grammar-obsessed, eagle-eyed editor and natural storyteller with a love for audio. You have a red-pen mentality that’s always looking for the cleanest and most concise way to tell a story. You’ve written scripts for video (or preferrably, audio), and are aching for more inclusive, diverse, and higher quality content in the podcast industry. You know how to strike the balance between telling a compelling story and keeping sentence structure tight.

You are kind at your core, approach your work with diligence and intention, and have big ideas on how words can influence perception, emotion, and action. You are a clear communicator, especially when it comes to speaking up for what you need, how your team can support you, and what you aim to achieve. 

You will take raw audio and turn it into a podcast script. This involves selecting the best audio clips and writing a voiceover that matches the tone of the host and the show. You will also use your creativity to write episode intros, podcast descriptions, promotional material, and client-facing copy. On occasion, you may be tagged in to support our Strategy Team with their research and concepting work. You have plenty of opportunities to tell a wide variety of compelling stories for FRQNCY clients, who range from multinational brands to global icons to high-growth startups to nonprofits, and that excites the living heck out of you.

You will flex your superpowers in the following ways:

  • Outline and script for all audio projects and narrative content, both independently and as part of a writing team. 
  • Write catchy and concise episode descriptions, titles, and promotional material. 
  • Quickly, thoughtfully, and professionally adjust a script to reflect client feedback.
  • Seamlessly incorporate research into scripts and communicate complicated concepts at an accessible level. 
  • Translate creative concepts into digestible copy for clients. A blank Google Doc does not intimidate you, it empowers you.
  • Build and maintain kind and collaborative relationships with clients.
  • Support the broader work of the strategy team when needed. This can include concepting, content strategy work, editorial lineups, host and guest strategy, as well as other research projects. 
  • Consider all points of views, perspectives, and backgrounds when creating concepts for clients to ensure diverse experiences are considered, included, and/or represented in FRQNCY-ideated audio projects.
  • Meet deadlines, be punctual, and be ready to dive in if your team member needs support. We all look out for each other, and meet our deadlines as a sign of respect for one another, since our work is so interconnected.


Our ideal part-time writer has:

  • Experience: 2+ years of experience writing narrative content, with experience writing scripts for audio strongly preferred

    • Proficiency with Google Drive and collaborative editing tools
    • Experience with Monday.com is a plus
  • Clarity: Strong communication skills and a dedication to meeting deadlines
  • Initiative: If you’re proactively thinking about the next cool project, thinking through potential pitfalls, and identifying ways to improve without being prompted, we want to meet you.
  • Curiosity: You are naturally wired to research, explore, unearth, and discover.
  • Passion: Audio is what we do. It’s what we eat, breathe, and sleep. Having a passion for the core of our business is pretty, pretty, pretty…important.
