An Illinois must.

Grateful for this candid peak behind the curtain. I learn, am entertained, and walk away understanding more about the way I am impacted and can impact local issues.

Splendiferous

The duo with Glenance and Daniel is driving IL Informed home as one of my favorite podcasts of all time.

The dance of perspective around their shared heart for social justice delivers something...revelatory.

A spring rain, a starry night, goat cheese and cherries ice cream from Jeni's, and a lake-side sunrise over a pleasant morning run. All wrapped into each episode.

Well done!!

I could have said "relaxing, refreshing, eye-opening, delicious, and hopeful," but that misses the point--the show is somehow personal. I love it.

Great podcast!

I've been looking for a way to learn more about the state govenment - makes no sense that the closer politics gets to our daily lives the less information seems to be out there. Dan and Glenance are doing an amazing job filling in the gaps. Love Dan's real-world examples! Also love the longer episodes, a deeper dive is appreciated since most of these topics are rarely reported on.
