By Engaging Local Government Leaders (ELGL)

GovLove is a podcast about the people, policies and profession of local government. From Mayors and City Managers to interns and everyone in between, we interview the people making a difference in their communities to learn about the great work being done at the local level. Weekly episodes rotate between three hosts, Kirsten Wyatt, Kent Wyatt and Ben Kittelson and monthly international episodes are hosted by John Allore.
