10/10 would recommend — even for non-government related people!

As someone who’s worked for government and is now on the side of helping governments work better, the information in these podcasts are extremely beneficial in finding ways to do just that — amazing quality and work for the time put in!

An Oasis for Positive State and Local Gov Success Stories

As a State gov worker, it’s encouraging to hear talented and dedicated public servants discuss problems, solutions, and trends that anyone in gov, at any level, can relate to. The positivity is refreshing and much-needed.

A great niche pod for people into local government

GovLove brings on guests who are doing some of the most creative and important work in government (at any level). The show exudes Leslie Knope-level enthusiasm about local government and the people who power it. I appreciate that episodes have no set length and that the interviews give insights about the guests' biography and career path. I wish the hosts would ask their goofy off-topic questions at the end of the interview, rather than at the beginning as a warm-up; as it is, I often skip ahead to get to the meat of conversation. Listeners should know upfront that the audio is sometimes subpar and the episodes appear to receive little to no editing (lots of uhs and ums), but you quickly get over those minor issues because the conversations are always thoughtful and the subject matter is hard to find anywhere else. It's also worth noting that these folks are prolific (new episodes every week!), so chances are you'll find at least a few relevant/interesting episodes each month. If you work in or with local government or cover it as a journalist, you ought to be subscribing to GovLove.
