A superb podcast

I just discovered this gem as the host had a guest describing “Lost, Not Stolen”

Fresh Perspective

I am an avid listener of podcasts. I like the format of Hubwonk and hope the host will continue to develop his strong voice. Whether intended or not, the fact that they have launched during the Covid 19 crisis has made this fresh perspective and extremely relevant guests a welcome addition to my own personal feed. While I am listening from Massachusetts, the themes in the show should earn some listeners from beyond our commonwealth.

Great idea

Joe is doing a great job focusing on the important differences these local companies are making. In this time of pandemic, it is critical for government and business to work together to effect change, and you get a sense of how that happens at Hubwonk.
