Benton County is excited to announce episode two of its new public podcast, the "Benton County Public Podcast". This podcast is a platform for County officials and community members to engage in meaningful conversations about the issues that matter most to the residents of Benton County.

"Benton County Public Podcast" is a collaborative effort between the County's Public Information Office and other County departments, including the Board of Commissioners. Podcasts will cover a variety of topics, including updates on County projects, public safety issues, public health initiatives, and community events.

"We are thrilled to launch this new podcast and provide community members with a new way to stay informed and connected to their local government," said Public Information Officer Cory Grogan. "The podcast will give us the opportunity to take a deeper dive on topics the community cares about."

Podcasts will feature interviews with County and community leaders, as well as segments highlighting the work of County departments and community organizations. Listeners can expect to hear from a diverse range of voices and perspectives, providing a well-rounded view of the issues affecting Benton County.

"Benton County Public Podcast" is now available on RSS.com. Listeners can also access each episode on the County's website and YouTube channel where they can find additional information related to each episode.

"We hope that 'Benton County Connects' will be a valuable resource for our community, helping to foster stronger connections and a greater sense of engagement with local government," said Grogan.

In March, Episode 1 of the podcast featured the history of the Coffin Butte landfill, and what the County is doing to manage solid waste now and, in the future, what individuals can do to help decrease consumption, and why it is important.

This month, Episode 2 features the Jackson-Frazier Wetland and work happening to maintain and preserve the wetland with Natural Resources Coordinator Adam Stebbins, and Natural Areas Parks & Events Deputy Director Jesse Ott.

The next podcast with Host and Producer, KORC’s Dan Crall, will feature homeless response in Benton County and the Corvallis Daytime Drop-in Center.
