Issue Ownership with Tiffany Gooch
Show Notes

Tiffany Gooch, Principal at Aurora Strategy and activist, chats with Elizabeth about issue ownership (which, it turns out, is NOT issue management). Issue ownership is this idea that certain political parties will be perceived to be particularly credible or effective on certain issues and they can develop comms strategy based on it. But pandemics change things.
