    Shoutout to BtT Colleague Jodie House!!! Australia based, UK born and bred Bang the Table colleague Jodie House has NEVER listened to the UK Consult Podcast before, and with some flimsy excuses (at best) for not doing so, but can Jonno guess what sector she focuses on in her work, and what her favourite TV Show is, based on her name alone? Charly's Choons of the Week Elt's been listening to 'Tears' by The Stone Roses, have a listen here(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRg7oV6q05Q)! Should it be spelt "Tiers" though? Jonno is back from his 80s cheese last week, and re-enters Charly's Choons with the FAR more respectable Flawless - Phunk Investigation Club, check it out here (https://open.spotify.com/track/5oUH9Rl2PdFklGKc9kMBkE?si=taAhQ9eQSdGQIeIeAX6wsw)!

    Charly's Choons of the Week Jonno is haunted by throwback music (Abba, Tina Turner) on Spotify (other music streaming platforms ARE available). It's unanimously agreed that none of this can be shared with the public. Elt has enjoyed the dark recommendations of Bang the Table colleague Johannes Kresling this week. Nominated track is Nine Black Alps, Unsatisfied. Have a listen here. Twitter Poll The UK was divided North/South over the big "What's Best with Chips?" debate. With only 4 options available to Elt (unlike EngagementHQ Polls!!!), Curry & Brown Sauce lovers were left disappointed. General Themes Project Big Picture - We can no longer take a "DAD" (Decide, Act, Defend) approach to engagement and consultation. Check out the Fans' response here (https://thefsa.org.uk/news/fan-groups-unite-to-condemn-project-big-picture/).

Twitter Poll to follow so everyone can have a say. Caitlin talks through her PhD research and how the emphasis has changed since the global pandemic, and as always has a fantastic new infographic to guide the discussion taken from this blog post (https://www.commonplace.is/blog/blending-online-and-offline-community-engagement). General Themes Caitlin has interviewed over 40 practitioners throughout her research, surveying them on their evolving approaches to digital engagement. The shift towards using digital tools has been rapidly accelerated by the impact of Covid19. Organisations are thinking far more constructively about blended approaches to engagement and how to integrate individual tools/toolkits more flexibly, with inclusion in mind. There is no one size fits all. "Trust is one of the most essential objectives towards best practice

    Charly's Choons Nostalgia is very much the watchword this week as Elt reminisces about The Smiths, and in particular Girl Afraid (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TK2BtdablXw), which you can listen to here. Jonno vows to diligently listen to the full back catalogue of Smith's music before next week's podcast recording. Will it improve his mood or will he need to dig out some classic Pet Shop Boys to cheer himself back up again? Emerging Trends & Themes in Online Public Consultation and Community Engagement Jonno is detecting a real change in approaches to digital engagement and online public participation with people tending to ask "How do I do it?" rather than "why would I do it?" There is more of a conversation shift towards what makes a good online public consultation. This chimes with Elt's recent conversations in the Housing sector, looking to re-engage with residents and customers in the absence of face to face meetings.
