More people keep joining up.
According to this article in Public CIO magazine, Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm started sending out her weekly radio address via Podcast earlier this month. Released each friday at 10 a.m., the Governer hopes, in typical government-ese, “to talk directly to the citizens of Michigan about what their government is doing to improve their state for them.” Seems straighforward enough, albeit rather broad.
Nonetheless, props to the administration’s bold attempt at embracing a new technology favored among those ever-present “young people.” Now if they could only get the aformentioned whippersnappers to actually listen to an audio file likely chock-full of budgetary, legal and other administrative news.
“Hey man, what are you listening to?”
“Oh, just the Governor’s weekly podcast.”
