As part of its 50th-year celebrations, the PRCA has launched its first ever podcast: PRcast.
PRcast has been created as a way to share insight into the PR and communications industry, with bite-sized news stories and conversations with top practitioners. The podcast has been created in association with markettiers and shows will be hosted by PRCA’s communications and social media manager, Harry Gardiner, alongside groups manager, Isobel Arrowsmith.
Francis Ingham, director general, PRCA, said: ‘PRcast comes at a timely moment for our industry. With more fake news and miscommunication on important topics than ever, the podcast aims to cut through the crap and get to the crux of weighty issues.’
Howard Kosky, CEO and founder, markettiers, said: ‘As the official PRCA Broadcast partner we are excited to be working on this new communications channel, and hearing the insights from many of the industry’s key voices on a variety of interesting matters.’
