The Registrar magazine to launch podcast series

The Registrar magazine, the Canadian regulatory sector’s primary publication, is launching a podcast series to further promote the work of regulators and the people who commit their careers to protecting the public interest.

The Registrar podcast will produce several issues annually between the magazine’s publication dates. It will be hosted by Daniel Roukema, CEO of MDR Strategy Group, the agency that produces The Registrar magazine. “This is really exciting,” says Roukema, who has thirty years of experience in the entertainment sector. “Transforming print to voice has become so powerful, and I look forward to meeting and bringing out the passion and emotion of our guests to the thousands of regulators and other people who now follow the Registrar magazine.”

The audio format of the magazine aims to interview regulators at sub-executive levels to discuss current issues and events, personal stories, current trends, and best practices in the licensing and regulation sector.

Regulators, and those who work within the industry, have lauded The Registrar for continuing to showcase consumer protection in a new lens.

“Podcasting is a great opportunity to increase The Registrar’s reach,” says David Brazeau, communications manager with an Ontario delegated provincial authority. “This magazine has successfully brought together this vast network of regulators in Canada by sharing news, stories and best practices. I’m looking forward to hearing more about my colleagues in an engaging audio format.”

The Registrar podcast is slated to record its first episodes this September at the Council of Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation (CLEAR) 2022 Annual Educational Conference in Louisville, Kentucky. It will be published in early October on all major platforms, such as Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Google Podcasts. Episodes will also be embedded in future issues of The Registrar Magazine.
