Civic technology — that’s the name of the game in this month’s Podcast.

Check out the podcast to hear from Steve Case, the former CEO of AOL, who recently toured the Midwest trying to garner attention and support for mid-size cities.

Why? The D.C.-based investor believes places like Minneapolis, St. Louis and Kansas City have burgeoning technology scenes, but go relatively unnoticed.

Then hear from Philadelphia’s former chief data officer (and former Wilmington resident) Mark Headd as he offers lessons to other CDOs — and discusses the frustrations that led him to leave city government earlier this year.

Laurenellen McCann, a civic technologist from D.C., also issues a challenge to attendees of last month’s Code for America Summit.

You’ll also hear more about’s upcoming Rise conference, which will feature leaders of various stripes from cities up and down the East Coast. The kicks off in Philadelphia tomorrow evening.
