This podcast is about how to influence policy at all levels of government. I deconstruct high impact policy change campaigns with the people who lead them. Each episode is a practical tutorial from highly effective "agents of policy change". I explore their mindsets and strategies, and what they would do if they had their time again. If you are a seasoned campaigner, these insights will help you hone your game. If you are a funder, you will learn how to spot winning campaigns and what to invest in next. And if you care about an issue but don’t know “how to make a difference”, let these amazing leaders inspire you. [This podcast is produced by the brilliant Dale Willis, founder of PodStream.me]
