Archived space

G2R has now evolved to GovCampus.co - where thought leaders, decision makers and innovators hear what each other have to say on important trends.

This Gov 2.0 Radio archive of thought leader podcasts will remain available in its current form as well as being re-mixed and curated as part of GovCampus.
Say ‘hi’ to Gov 2.0 Radio!
“Thanks for joining us. ‘Bye for now”

Since early 2009, for over five years, Gov 2.0 Radio has been where thought leaders and decision-makers, practitioners and civic innovators have come to tune in to important trends. But it’s now time to move on.

We're still about amplifying the voices of connected government & public innovation.

G2R has been not just a podcast but a place where people can learn to find their voice on "connected government" in all its forms... e-gov, gov 2.0, open gov and more... as well as on shaping positive change through innovation in the public sphere.

There has been a strong focus on technology-enabled innovation – however the technology has always been only an enabler and, for us, Gov 2.0 and open gov are important cultural shifts in the way we all - that’s all of us - do government.

Social knowledge for the public sphere; the public sector; public innovators.

In recent years the Gov 2.0 Radio team has sought to broaden the podcast distribution as widely and equitably as possible.  Now, with the active support of the ‘original’ G2R team our focus is on broadening the content to be even more relevant to a wider audience.

So we’re evolving to GovCampus and you’ll now find us over here at http://govcampus.co. We’ve enjoyed such a loyal audience for so long that we’ll keep Gov 2.0 Radio alive and archived here.

Our goal for GovCampus is to help a wide community inside and outside government to “find their voice” around their passions and concerns for connected government and public innovation. 

2014 will be our ramp-up in this new journey, so please join us.  If you’d like to be part of our continuing conversation, please subscribe to updates and join in through comments and social sharing.


Gov 2.0 Radio podcast collection
The podcast collection

The GovCampus team is working to develop new ways that the existing library of audio content plus our new material can be of added value to our listeners.  We remain absolutely committed to Gov 2.0 Radio content being available for FREE via partner channels and sites.  

Some of the ways you can still make smart use of Gov 2.0 Radio include:


 Check out our library of topic episodes for inspiring interviews and innovation case studies.  You can now search and sort by topic, country or level of government.


 Use your favorite social media tools to like or share our podcast news or audio library of topic episodes.  You'll find us on the GovCampus social streams Twitter and Google+ and other networks. Our podcast episodes seem to have an unusually long tail of up to two years – so you’ll still find people chatting about episode content and speakers.

The Gov 2.0 Radio formats

Our archived library of podcasts can be seen in several formats:

 NewsChat: Pre-2012 Gov 2.0 Radio episodes were typically a NewsChat format - a mix of commentary on news of the day followed by a topical feature interview.  

 Topic interviews: Episodes featuring dedicated topic discussions with guests exploring their subject matter expertise, supported by value-added online resources.  These focus on specific topics and often with a focus on country or level of government.

 Event segments: Special coverage of events – live where possible or pre-and post-recorded with support social media streams.
