Great Show!

Fed heads is a great show to hear about the great work federal agencies do and some of the challenges they encounter packaged in a short and good listen. The banter between Robert and Francis is not to be discounted.

Shhhhhh

Robert and Francis...the deep state whisperers.

Seriously, very informative discussion, terrific recognition and airtime for dedicated government officials and, remarkably, fun listening.

Looking forward to season three!
