Info straight from the agency
This podcast gives listeners the opportunity to hear the information without it having gone through the any media filters.
Informative, consice, and interesting
Great peek into the checks and balances the governement is trying to employ. I feel bad for the GAO though, 'cause every episode seems to be, "We told they were doing this, this, and this wrong, and they still haven't fixed it."
Well produced, and totally worth subscribing to.
A nice little peek into the GAO
Each episode highlights some specific which the Government Accountability Office is looking into. The little tidbits allow you to actually understand what the government does.
