Ann’s podcast interview, “Running Amazing Council Meetings,” with Jim Hunt

I had the pleasure this summer of a lively conversation with Jim Hunt, host of “Amazing Cities and Towns” podcast. Jim is a former mayor and councilmember in Clarksburg, West Virginia, and past president of the National League of Cities. He brought a candid eye,  wide experience, and sharp insights to our discussion. We talked about the key principles for running amazing council meetings, and I shared some of my history in the U.S. Foreign Service, working as a diplomat representing the U.S. government overseas, and a Russian translator. It all became grist for the mill of Jurassic Parliament! I hope you will enjoy this podcast.
