Over the years, the way presidents communicate with the public has changed dramatically. These shifts have been largely driven by the emergence of new technologies — such as radio, television and, most recently, the Internet.

In this episode, host Helen Gibson talks with David Almacy, who served as White House Internet and E-Communications director from 2005 to 2007. He discusses his time in the White House Office of Media Affairs and the changes he’s seen in political communication throughout his career.
