Summary: The EuroPCom Podcast is a series of interviews conducted at EuroPCom, the European Public Communication Conference. Speakers from the EU institutions, private communication agencies, think tanks and local politics will give you insights on their communication activities at times of Euroscepticism and anti-European propaganda, especially in view of the 2019 European Parliament elections.
