Just can't get enough of Condaleeza Rice? What about press releases from the NYPD? Well, you're in luck because the State Department and NYPD have both launched podcasts with just that kind of content. Here are your choices from State: the president's foreign policy speeches, the Secretary of State's speeches. And the police departmetn offers safety tips, press releases, and street closure information.
While it is a good thing to make all presidential and cabinet-level speeches available in audio (as well as text and video for that matter), government communicators should think more deeply about what kind of content would really be compelling for citizens, and what the point of podcast releases are.
