In this week's episode of our podcast, The Global Cable, Governor Martin O'Malley talks to us about the three things every citizen needs to hear from government during a pandemic; how policymakers can use data to tackle society's biggest problems, from coronavirus to climate change; and his dream of meeting Bruce Springsteen.

Martin O'Malley served as Governor of Maryland and Mayor of Baltimore.  Throughout his time in office, Governor O'Malley championed new ways of thinking about city and state government. He introduced systems called 'CitiStat' and 'StateStat' to improve performance management in government, and 'BayStat' to help turn around a 300-year decline in the health of the Chesapeake Bay. He recently published his second book, Smarter Government: How To Govern for Results in the Information Age.

In the Franklin Few, Governor O'Malley recommended what he's been reading recently:
