Democracy sausage podcast: Talk is cheap



Session Overview

In this presentation, the popular Democracy Sausage Podcast joins the GovComms Festival for a very special episode on government communications.

Hosted by producer Martyn Pearce, guests Marija Taflaga from the ANU, Jannette Cotterell from Executive Counsel Australia and Fiona Benson from FJ Partners Strategic Advisory discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has shaped and changed the landscape of government communications.

They discuss the effectiveness of mobile apps such as ‘Fires Near Me’ and ‘COVID Safe’ in crisis communications. They also discuss the importance of government communications and social media as the pandemic slows and a vaccine becomes available to the public.

This hour-long episode is vital for government communicators to listen to and learn from as we move into a post-COVID-19 world.

After watching this video, you will:

  • Learn how the government communications landscape has changed during the pandemic.
  • Know the vital role that social media plays in government communications.
  • Understand the important role that government communicators will play when the COVID-19 vaccine is released.
