GovCast tells the personal stories of the government and industry leaders transforming the public sector, and the bits and pieces typically not covered by federal IT publications. We share the untold stories about how these influencers got to where they are, their passions in and outside of technology and the roadblocks they’ve conquered. You’ll find these stories are not always what you’d expect them to be.
