Too focused on federal CIO/IT staff

It’s 99% for federal agency CIO/IT employees. They should be clearer my agency is a large federal agency and never gets coverage in this podcast but each time an agency CIO post changes people it’s covered. If I was in my agency’s CIO I’d give it five stars but since I’m not it’s more of a 1-2 star rating.
