Podcasts are big. More than 32 percent of Americans over the age of 12 now listen to podcasts on a monthly basis. Whether you are a one-person shop or part of a large local government communications team, podcasts can be an effective way to reach audiences on the go. As podcast listenership continues to rise, it's time to ask if podcasting is right for your city's communications strategy. 

We’re starting off 2020 with a webinar from two podcast pros that will give you the clarity and tools you need to evaluate the medium, including strategy, resources, and techniques.
