Best Podcast for local governments

I stumbled on this as a city council representative for a small Ohio town. It quickly became my “church” a true snapshot about what it’s like to be in local leadership.

Bring it back

You are by far my favorite podcaster. Please bring it back! We elected officials need this in our lives. Your interviews make me a better councilman.
