City of San Marcos launches podcast to inform and engage community members

Your city news. On your time. That’s the idea behind the new ‘San Marcos City Podcast,’ hosted by City Manager Jack Griffin and other city staff. As a podcast aficionado himself, Griffin knows the podcast platform allows and encourages listeners to take a deeper dive into issues they care about.

So why not offer San Marcos residents podcasts that demystify city government and offer a transparent listening opportunity about current projects and how government works?

“Most cities are increasingly challenged getting communications out to the public,” Griffin said. “The podcast is a great platform to engage our residents in thoughtful, in-depth discussions about the city they call home. We won’t be talking politics here, but we will be focusing on important city issues and updates.”

Listeners can tune in to listen to interviews with local experts, business owners, higher education leaders and more. As a leader in public safety, infrastructure, recreation, industry and cultural programs, the City of San Marcos features a wide variety of innovative offerings and services to share with the community.

The San Marcos City Podcast currently features four podcasts:

–        Introduction

–        Interview with Fire Chief Dan Barron and District Chief Dean White regarding wildfires

–        A summary of key items the San Marcos City Council approved in September

–        San Marcos Creek Project update with Project Manager Isaac Etchamendy

To learn more and tune in, go to the San Marcos City Podcast webpage where you will find links to a variety of podcast platforms to listen in from.
