Chris Mitchell is my favorite

I don’t know if it’s because of his self-deprecating humor or use of big words... but seriously I never miss an episode. Keep up the great work, all! I always learn so much and have shared episodes many times. 👍

Totally inspiring

I’m on my local Select Board and this podcast has given me so much insight and inspiration. This is a great podcast for all municipal officials and anyone wanting to make a difference. Thank you for doing this!

A Favorite

I appreciate the varied topics on different aspects of community power. The dissection of corporate and monopoly power, and all the experts from ILSR regularly on the show. And love the book recommendations!
