    Building a Brilliant Podcasting Team with Mark Bateman, Helena Cox and Steve Eccles. S3 E7

    A warm welcome to Be a Bigger Fish.
    This episodes features the brilliant podcasting team, Steve Eccles, Helena Cox and Mark Bateman.
    They got together to start up a podcast for the colleagues and community of East Riding Council in Yorkshire, UK. After a fying start, their initial podcast workflow hit the setback of the social distancing measures put in place to halt the spread of Covid-19 early in 2020.
    Despite that, the team have bounced back and are now publishing again, connecting their community and giving their colleagues a place to share their personalities and their successes.
    If you're on the fence about whether a podcast could be a good addition to your comms channels, tune in to this inspiring team of podcast enthusiasts. They share plenty of tips and techniques you can adopt straight away.
    Grateful thanks to Mark, Steve and Helena.
