Posted on December 31, 2021

2021 GovieLovie Awards

Awarding the best of the best, snake draft style. The GovLove co-hosts teamed up to hand out awards and recap the sixth full year of a podcast about local government. Kirsten, Toney, Lauren, Dan, Ashley, and Ben all selected three of their favorite episodes to honor with the most prestigious award in local government podcasting, a GovieLovie. They also shared their favorite lightning round question, the most embarrassing thing they’ve done in an interview, and the one thing they can’t let go of from 2021.
