The Car World is Talking
Learn about innovations in the automotive industry and get news from the ŠKODA AUTO world through podcasts
oing to work in the morning and listening to the car speakers or headphones to get up to date on current events in the country and social issues, go into detail on one’s popular sport or just be entertained has recently become an integral part of many people’s lifestyles. All you have to do is listen to your favourite podcasts, for example, via the applications on your mobile phone, so you won’t miss a thing. You can play it at any time and do not have to rely on a specific programme, as is the case with radio broadcasts. The only thing the listener has to do is choose the right length so that, for example, the podcast exactly covers the time of the commute.
And what is crucial for a podcast? “A quality podcast cannot do without good dramaturgy. It is important to have suitable topics and involve people who can talk about them”, says Martin Ježek from the GKU – Corporate Communications department, which is in charge of digital topics.
The SIMPLY CLEVER PODCAST strengthens the image of ŠKODA AUTO as the leading technology company in the Czech Republic. At the same time, it represents its partnerships with universities, startups, technology companies and government entities.
ŠKODA’s podcast sets the standard
The Mladá Boleslav carmaker has something to offer listeners as well (see ŠKODA AUTO Podcasts). In cooperation with the GKU department, the ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab started creating a professionally prepared programme that brings valuable information to the customers, as well as interesting views from the company’s backstage, including news from the world of innovation. Its SIMPLY CLEVER PODCAST is created in a professionally equipped studio and hosted by experienced radio journalist Vojtěch Koval. Episodes are about 40 minutes long and published every two weeks. For the time being, they are in Czech, but an English-language version is being prepared as well.
However, the podcasts do not have to be only publicly available through advanced mobile applications. In a convenient way, they internally address the employees, who can be even more involved in the processes at the car factory and get inspired. “We will gladly provide our other colleagues with our know-how of creating podcasts and help them to get started”, says David Beška, who is in charge of the SIMPLY CLEVER PODCAST at the ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab.
