Actionable step in each episode

Aside from always knowing that the host is “doing good, doing good” and hearing about the weather near the guest, this podcast always has really interesting interviews with a nice range of guests from elected officials, authors, or just citizens making their town better rather than running for greener pastures.

Run For Something

Listened to the first episode and already love this. We all think nationally - but we live locally. That could mean serving on a town commission (sidewalk review panel or whatever) or serve as a town commissioner. Great podcast. Lively atmosphere.
