Podcast provided clarity and calm during COVID-19 pandemic

When the COVID-19 crisis forced Australians into lockdown earlier this year, The New Daily found its readers had a hunger for useful, informative and reassuring news about the pandemic.

JNI provided The New Daily with a grant to support its COVID Conversations podcast.

Editor Neil Frankland said the grant provided an opportunity for The New Daily to commission, fund and present stories in an innovative way, that would not normally be available.

“We were able to engage production staff and employ specialist science reporter John Elder to present these in-depth, coronavirus-related topics in a regular COVID Conversation podcast,” he said.

“John’s in-depth conversations with a variety of Australian medical, psychological and ethical experts were very well received and enabled us to provide a much-needed service for our readers.”
