About this podcast:

The Missoula County commissioners host "The Agenda" podcast, which aims to help county residents better understand how local government works and how it affects their lives. In each episode, the commissioners sit down with fellow staff, elected officials and community partners to discuss public sector projects and trending topics.

The podcast, formerly titled "Tip of the Spear," received the 2022 Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties.

The Communications Division at Missoula County produces this podcast with support from Missoula Community Access Television (MCAT). If you have something you’d like to add to the conversation, email

Missoula County is grateful to have MCAT as partner in local government, as that partnership allows us to use their podcast recording equipment free of charge, and it allows us to produce a high-quality podcast without the County needing to purchase this necessary equipment.
