February Edition of I Heard It Through The Grapevine
Mon, 10 Feb 2020

Since launching I Heard It Through The Grapevine two months ago, staff have listened to the first two podcasts nearly 700 times.

We hope you enjoyed the January podcast and will join the team and their guests again for the February edition, which can be listened to below:

What is in the February edition?
The February podcast includes an interview with Angela Williams about Active Withernsea - find out what it is, what's coming up and how you can get involved; a chat with Ian Burnett about the route for the Tour de Yorkshire 2020; and we hear from Tony Ali about how we keep the East Riding moving in the winter months. The Live Well Work Well feature looks at spotting the signs of a stroke, with Mike McDermott, and presenter Helena talks about Open Art at Beverley Art Gallery. Our competition is a chance to win tickets to see The Hound of the Baskervilles at East Riding Theatre in Beverley.

What is a podcast?
A podcast is a series of digital audio files made available on a regular basis. Podcasts can be listened to online or downloaded onto a computer or mobile device to listen to later.

Who are the podcast's presenters?
I Heard It Through The Grapevine is presented by Steve Eccles from the press office and Helena Cox, curator of Beverley Art Gallery, and is produced in association with Beverley FM, using its studios and technical expertise.

What else do I need to know?
When listening to the podcast, staff are reminded to be mindful of other work commitments and to have consideration for other members of staff and use headphones, where possible, and be able to respond to any audible fire alarms and telephones.

How can I access this out of work?
Staff can access the podcast via the intranet from home and can also listen to the podcast for free via SoundCloud.
You can also download the podcast from SoundCloud to listen to on another device but will need to create an account to do this.

Is the podcast content available in other ways?
I Heard It Through The Grapevine has been developed by the corporate communications team to complement other internal communications channels, including the new-look intranet and The Grapevine. Some features will appear across all three channels.

On request, a transcript of the podcast can be provided. This can be requested by emailing pressoffice@eastriding.gov.uk

Can I make suggestions for future editions?
Staff are encouraged to submit their ideas for items to be included in future editions by emailing pressoffice@eastriding.gov.uk

How do I take part in the competition?
After listening to the podcast, staff wishing to enter the competition should email their answer to pressoffice@eastriding.gov.uk and put 'Podcast Competition' as the title.
