The deadline for submitting questions is 20 July. While we cannot guarantee we will ask your specific question, all contributions will be considered in planning the interview.
On 22 July, the Parliament web team will interview the new Commons Speaker John Bercow. We want the public to send us their questions to put to the Speaker as part of this exclusive filmed interview and podcast, which we will publish on the Parliament website at the end of July.
Yesterday the Web Centre hosted a half day workshop on how we could take the Podcast Pilot and turn it into a more established service. The workshop focused on these areas:
- developing production values for Parliament Podcasts
- thinking about the processes around commissioning, editing and releasing recordings
- what kind of products we want to develop
