"The internship program is excellent and well-managed ... a fantastic experience all around."

"The whole experience was incredibly valuable!  I especially enjoyed being able to follow a show in its entirety, from concept to production." 


"I found the process enormously interesting, stimulating and challenging: From the initial show concept, to the brainstorming involved to pull together the kinds of guests who will help present viewpoints and ideas within the scope of the topic, to actually picking up the phone and trying to get through to that one person you need to talk to."

"It reinforced my own knowledge of what I'm good at and what I enjoy, which will help me make future career decisions."


"People are very friendly, easy to talk to. I was surprised, and delighted, at how large and significant a role interns play on Insight. I was treated, and expected to behave, like a co-worker."

"It's a very positive, supportive fun environment to work in."
