The staff podcast - I Heard it Through the Grapevine - is back!
Mon, 27 Jul 2020

The podcast team are having to work in different ways, as it's not possible to access a radio studio at the moment, but they can record at home and the experts at Beverley FM edit it all together.

The podcast is presented by Steve Eccles from the press office and Helena Cox, curator of Beverley Art Gallery.

The new edition features chief executive Caroline Lacey giving an update on the council's Outbreak Management Plan, the Three Steps to Safety and how the East Riding will recover from COVID-19 as well as a personal message to all staff.

There is also an update on council facilities that have reopened, helpful information about obesity and health and wellbeing and the latest on the new-look Cycle to Work Scheme.

There is also a chance to win a family pass to Sewerby Hall and Gardens in the competition.

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.

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 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.
