News coverage is consistently filled with reports of the latest purported government “scandal” or failure. While these issues may often deserve attention, they frequently drown out examples of government done well.

This week’s show highlights two recent digital initiatives – Library of Congress Labs and Challenge.gov – both of which are utilizing the internet to create modern, user-friendly, innovative government resources.

Host Ben Carnes from Shaw Bransford & Roth is joined in-studio by Kate Zwaard, National Digital Initiatives chief at the Library of Congress, and Tammy White, Senior IT Platform/Communications Specialist at Challenge.gov.

Listen to this show live on Friday, November 17 at 11:00 a.m. ET on Federal News Radio 1500 AM in the Washington, DC area, or stream online via the Federal News Radio player.
