Thu, 15 Oct 2020

The October edition of I Heard it Through the Grapevine - the podcast for staff at East Riding of Yorkshire Council - is now available.

Presented by Steve Eccles from the press office and Helena Cox, curator of Beverley Art Gallery, this month's podcast features interviews with David Johnston about the forthcoming opening of the Hornsea Hub and Alex Ombler about the exciting new Quarry to Country Park trail, opening soon at the Humber Bridge Country Park.

Lynsey Linton, the council's new head of human resources, speaks about taking on her new role and we learn all about the East Riding Festival of Words and what is available for both adults and for children.

In the LiveWellWorkWell feature, we hear from Darren Gladstone about a whole new approach to the initiative and you could win afternoon tea for two at Bridlington Spa 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?
