The Rewiring Government podcast brings you stories from the people in GovTech who get their hands dirty implementing technological change. In each episode, you'll learn how to navigate the institutional pressures aligned against changemakers, and hear what it takes to succeed. It’s easy to be cynical in these contexts, but we won’t be.
