Back in my days as a City Hall reporter, one of my very favorite things to do was the Comcast Citydesk Newshour show on local cable. Once a week, I’d get to chat live about politics and City Hall with some of The City’s top reporters, editorial writers and columnists. I was always rushing down to the TV studio in the Mission from my downtown office at The Examiner, and sometimes I’d arrive just in time to sneak in off camera and get miked up while show host Barbara Taylor was doing the intro.
Today, I’m having just as much fun with Gov 2.0 Radio (and I’ve only blown the start time once that I’ll cop to), the weekly show I host on BlogtalkRadio with the help of GovLoop’s Steve Ressler and GovTwit’s Steve Lunceford and great guests from government and Web 2.0. If you’re one of our regular listeners, thank you! If not, I hope you’ll check out the show live on Sundays, 9 p.m. EST, or as a replay, at http://gov20radio.com. Past shows are also available at http://govfresh.com, thanks to Luke Fretwell.
Past guests on the show have included well-know tech names such as Tim O’Reilly and Craig Newmark, and a wealth of great govies, academics and enterprise consultants such as Gwynne Kostin and Andrea Baker, as well as industry reps from companies like Overtone and Yakabod. Jeffrey Levy of the EPA and Federal Web Managers Council has been a repeat guest.
Coming up this week, we’ll have retired career fed Stephen Buckley and collaboration consultant Brian Drake on to discuss citizen-gov participation and the premise and promise of “open government.” Also upcoming on the show, the CEO of SeeClickFix, Microsoft big thinker Lewis Shepherd, William Eggers – author of 2005’s “Government 2.0,” and other great gov insiders and outsiders.
Hope you’ll tune in, and always feel free to drop me a line – @adrielhampton on Twitter – here, there or anywhere to suggest future guests for the show. You can also follow show promos on Twitter, @gov20radio. Thanks again!
