Roger de Weck was editor-in-chief at the Tages-Anzeiger and at the Time and Director General of SRG from 2011 to 2017. He has just published his book "The power of democracy - a response to authoritarian reactionaries" also in paperback with a new preface. He wrote the book before Corona, feeling vindicated by the crisis: Populists, de Weck writes, have shown in the crisis that - once in power - they have nothing to offer and make the problems even worse.

But isn't the author and publicist too naive? Isn't society divided by Corona - also in Switzerland - as never before? Has the power of enlightenment and reason faded? And can democracy renew itself at all and come back stronger? Reto Lipp discusses this with him in the latest episode.

In the monthly Comsumcast, SRF journalist and presenter Reto Lipp talks to pioneering minds from the media and communications industry. The topic: How is the Corona pandemic affecting the industry?

The Comsumcast is the replacement for the Communication Summit of the ZPRG (Zurich PR Society) and the ZPV (Zurich Press Association). The annual event at ETH Zurich was cancelled this year. A new episode appears every month, and nine have already been produced. It is created in the tablecast studio of Christoph Soltmannowski, where also the in-house video podcast of m&k and Advertising Week "Off The Record" is recorded.
