Podcast Guest-Experts

I found that what motivated me most was hearing a long-form conversation (1hr +) between an expert and someone whose opinion I already trust

Did this resource motivate you to change your behaviors?

  • Yes

In what ways did you change your behaviors as a result of this resource?

It was after listening to this conversation (and to be fair, having followed other podcasters comment on this topic) that I began taking social distancing seriously. My family and I have quarantined ourselves since Monday, working from home and only leaving the house to get a bit of fresh air (away from people) or to run to our small local grocery store.  

Did you share this information with your network?

  • No

Where are you getting information around COVID-19?

  • Local Government
  • National Government
  • News: Digital
  • WHO (World Health Organization)
  • Word of Mouth

What populations or personas are not currently being addressed with today’s COVID-19 information?

I'm not sure how people with low-access-to-internet are being informed, not just in places like South America or Africa, but even areas in the American West. I'm sure there are traditional radio programs and televised news reports, but many people are understandably skeptical about sensationalism on those media channels. Folks without internet, without access to the rational, grounded conversations are the ones I'm most concerned about. 

What is your current profession?

Production Manager at a Creative Agency

In what city are you located?
