Inside PR Is Yours

By: Gini Dietrich | November 3, 2010 | 

You may or may not know that I co-host Inside PR every Wednesday with Martin Waxman and Joe Thornley, two of my favorite Canadians (don’t worry Andy Donovan and Danny Brown, I said “of”).

The podcast airs every Wednesday and we’re now on episode 27 so I think we’ve finally gotten the hang of it! We discuss our views on everything from PR and communications to social media and current events. Typically I blog about what we discuss on Wednesdays so you can participate in the conversation.

Today I’d like to do something a little bit differently. If you’ve never listened to us (don’t worry, my feelings won’t be hurt), I invite you to head over to Inside PR and take a gander through the archives and listen to one episode. We try to limit them to 20 minutes or less so you won’t have to be glued to it for a long time.

Then come back here and tell me what you’d like to hear us discuss. We’d really prefer it become your show instead of our show (which is how we feel it is now). I’d love to see us really debate some timely and sensitive topics so throw out some ideas around that, as well.

So there you have it. Inside PR is yours. What do you want it to do?

P.S. You can also reach us on Twitter or you can join the Facebook group.

  • I’m Scottish.

    Andy’s cool, though. 🙂

    @Dannybrown Oh good! Now I don’t have to include you in my favorite Canadians list, even though you live there. I just have to worry about the Scottish list. Thank heaven there isnt one!

    @DonovanGroupInc I’m sure I forgot someone, but it was you four who came to mind at 5 a.m. Wait. Don’t take that the wrong way!

    OK, I’ll bite at the challenge. Here are a couple of ideas:
    — Pros and cons of large companies turning over branding and PR to agencies.
    — How you’d handle being asked to do PR for the U.S. Congress (not the Republicans, Democrats or individual politicians)
    — How do you convince the CEO to stick with Social Media after his or her company has been torched?
    — Small businesses: If you only have the time and resources to use one platform for your PR (FB, LI, Twitter), how would you approach the decision?

  • @ginidietrich @DonovanGroupInc 😮

  • ginidietrich

    @consultantlaunc SUCH GREAT IDEAS! All of them – thank you!!

    I’m sorry, if I had ears I’d totally listen to your internet-based radio show. Unfortunately, being a crate, I am unable to tune in. Perhaps you could email the transcripts to me?
    Anyways, perhaps you could focus on interesting social media marketing campaigns that people actually pay attention to. You know, like ones the public cares about. I’m sitting on a bus shelter trying to find a purpose in life… a job or calling or something. Maybe you can help?
    Thanks a bunch.
    Yours truly,

  • @WhatsupwiththeCrate I know a crate artist. I will send them your way weekly to write the latest episode on your sides, to peruse at your wooden leisure. Not only that, I’ll make sure they clean your sides at the weekend before the next one goes live, ready for the next scribbles.

  • ginidietrich

    @DannyBrown @WhatsupwiththeCrate Isn’t that Danny Brown smart? But I do wonder, how do you type?

  • Ok it took me awhile to think about it but here is one.

    What is one thing you wish you could’ve done differently (or just done period) in the beginning of your careers. What advice would you offer young professionals starting out? And this ties in with that but do you think it’s more beneficial to start out working in a big PR firm or in a smaller organization (that may have a very small Communication department).

    Of course if I think of any more topics I will let you know! I love Inside PR and I’m looking forward to more shows to come!

  • ginidietrich

    @rachaelseda You’d better listen on Wednesday! We just recorded.

  • @GiniDietrich Of course, I will be listening! Looking forward to it.
