City of Crystal Launches Podcast to Connect with Residents
The city of Crystal is using podcasts to get more in-depth information out to residents. The city launched two podcasts earlier this year. One focuses on the city while the other focuses on public safety.
“They’re really convenient ways of getting information out. What’s nice is when we record them, people can maintain a safe distance. That wasn’t something we thought about before,” said Michael Peterson, the communication coordinator for the city of Crystal.
Peterson added that the nice thing about the city podcasts are that it comes with no cost.
“We already had the equipment because we record public meetings,” said Peterson. “So we just brought that equipment into another room and used it as a different purpose. And I edit it at my desk.”
There’s plenty of content too. Peterson said the public safety podcast has a years worth of themes.
