The Palais des congrès de Montréal and the Institut du Nouveau Monde (INM) are proud to announce a partnership and promotional agreement. At the core of their collaboration is their joint production of the recently-released season two of the Réverbère podcast. This agreement speaks to the two organizations’ desire to coordinate their actions and resources in order to broaden the reach of their respective missions.
The Palais des congrès, which promotes Montréal globally as a prime host city for major events, operates its own in-house studios – Palais Média Propulsion – and this is where Réverbère will record its episodes. The Palais therefore becomes a co-producer and co-distributor of the podcast, which launched in 2019 and has since been offering new insights on issues that have been engaging the attention of Québecers. On Réverbère, the INM interviews researchers and other specialists about topics such as scientific culture, democracy, society and climate change.
The podcast is free, and the first episode of the second season is available now on all listening platforms. Titled “Qui sont les jeunes qui s’engagent?,” it is on youth engagement, and the guest is Stéphanie Gaudet, Full Professor and Director of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research on Citizenship and Minorities (CIRCEM) at the University of Ottawa.
“One of the INM’s great strengths is its ability to take the pulse of the population. Add the reach of the Palais des congrès, and you have a winning formula. With Season Two of the Réverbère podcast being recorded at our in-house studios at the Palais, this points to a promising future for this new partnership.”
– Stéphanie Lepage, Director of Marketing and Communications, Palais des congrès de Montréal
“We are very excited about our partnership with the Palais des congrès de Montréal, which will help broaden the reach of our respective knowhows to new audiences, while celebrating the role scientific knowledge can play in public discourse.”
– Julie Caron-Malenfant, Executive Director, INM
