18F And A More Agile United States With Zachary Cohn
Zachary Cohn was the first person I thought of when I decided to make a podcast in which I interview people working with the public sector.

Their purpose is to support agencies in transforming the way they deliver digital services and technology products. Zac has spent the last two years...
Dissolving a Village With Dale Holderman
As promised, I have re-edited this episode to cut it down to a reasonable time and actually add the intro and outro. This interview is one of the first conversations I wanted to have when Tyler 2040 was first conceived. In 2013, my hometown of Keeseville, NY, ceased to exist.

We talk about the details of how the process works, touch on his experiences, and I get an in-depth explanation of bail. If you're ever looking for an...
Field Trip! City Council In Poplar Bluff
Tyler 2040 is on the road! I crashed a city council meeting in Poplar Bluff, MO. I learned a lot! And it gave me just a little bit more hope for our current government systems. I'm going to keep doing these field trips, and if you want, I'll keep sharing with you. Please go to the Tyler 2040 page on Facebook and leave me some comments.
