In January 2010, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) began to reach out to a new audience by offering podcasts. The podcast program is called the "Watchdog Report" and its focus is on "interviews with GAO officials on significant issues and new products." The hosts of the program are GAO staff members, and recent programs have included reports on the disclosure of airline service fees, federal efforts to develop biosurveillance capability, and health care services for women veterans. Every week, a new podcast is posted on the site, and visitors can sign up for their RSS feed or subscribe via iTunes. Anyone with an interest in governmental affairs and related matters will find this podcast quite useful, and it might even be a nice complement for courses dealing with civics.
