Guests:

We’re unofficially changing the name of this podcast to Social Media, Huh? – just for today. We’re shifting the focus of the conversation a bit from politics to social media use among local governments. The League’s communications director, Matt Bach, is joined by avid social media user for the City of Grand Rapids – Amy Snow-Buckner – and City of Allen Park Police Det. James Thorburn. It’s a funny and light conversation about the power of social media for local governments, using humor in building an audience, and lessons learned along the way.
