President Obama Notches Another Communication Win WIth Podcast Interview


Marc and President Obama in the garage(Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)

Among the things that I admire about President Obama is the winning strategy that his team has executed using technology, communication tools and data. Identifying influencers, direct messages, using Twitter, Facebook, See the White House Flickr feed which is awesome.

You should listen or download the podcast on Marc Maron's website. where the President made history by getting interviewed on a podcast with Marc Maron.

A few weeks ago the President got his own Twitter id  which the Comm team is using to their best ability
Now we know what the President listens to ( BTW I have to listen to this song ad thanks for the recommendation)
And then lo behold we also know that the President does not like Peas i his guacamole ! Atleast we know the communication coming out of the White House is from a human and not a bot
