We have been following GovTech startups for more than three years, from their co-working spaces to their meetings with venture capitalists - and tracking their progress as they close funding rounds, pilot and win business in state and local government, and earn placement on the GovTech100, an annual listing of startups active in the government technology market. We followed a trio of startup founders into the mayor’s lair at South By Southwest (SXSW) earlier this month. When the pitching ended, we looked at what happens when mayors ask the questions rather than investors. On this episode of our new podcast, Go Public, Government Technology’s Ben Miller and Governing’s J.B. Wogan join hosts Paul Taylor and Dustin Haisler for the anatomy of a GovTech pitch session.

Director Rian Johnson on ‘The Last Jedi’ and working with Carrie Fisher on her last film
The force is strong with this week’s guest! Writer and director of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi," Rian Johnson joins us in the studio to talk about making the blockbuster and putting himself in the head of characters like Luke Skywalker to write a compelling story.
Rian Johnson first broke through as a writer and director with 2005’s "Brick." It’s kind of a Coen brothers inspired film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The film is set in an Orange County suburb, and it’s sort of a neo-noir where most of the main characters are high school students. The tone of the film is eerie and dark, the dialogue is quick and snappy, and most important of all — it’s a great detective story.
Before "Brick," he was an editor for the creepy cult film "May," released in 2002. Other writing and directing credits include the sci-fi thriller "Looper," and the heist film comedy "The Brothers Bloom." He also directed a few of the most memorable Breaking Bad episodes.
When Rian sat down with Jesse they spoke extensively about "The Last Jedi." Including what it was like working with Carrie Fisher on her last film, how he received the offer to direct "The Last Jedi,"
and why he thought it was important that "Star Wars" be funny.
This segment will include some spoilers to the film, but honestly, if you haven’t seen "The Last Jedi" by now you are practically asking for spoilers. You have been warned!

Ian Parton & Ninja of The Go! Team on their new album ‘Semicircle’
Jesse talks with Ian Parton and Ninja of The Go! Team. They’re the band that made the Bullseye theme song —
Formed in the year 2000 in Brighton, England, the band’s basically the brainchild of Ian Parton. He recorded a lot of the band’s first record in his parent’s kitchen and released it as "Thunder, Lightning, Strike." A classic Go! Team track has a lot of influences: hip hop, marching band music, noise rock, 70s soul. A lot of the songs are sample based but they still sound live and fresh. One of Ian’s longest running collaborators is the MC Ninja, born Nkechi Ka Egenamba. She’s sung and rapped on every Go! Team record.
Ian tells Jesse about his creative process, and what it was like writing the smash hit "Roudou Sanka" by Japanese pop group Momoiro Clover Z. Ninja discusses what it was like when she first heard The Go! Team, and how she brings the music to life on stage.
The Go! Team will be touring this Spring, and their new album "Semicircle" will be released on January 19. For more information visit their website.
The Outshot: Sylvester
Finally, for this week’s Outshot: singer-songwriter Sylvester. Jesse tells us about the life of a disco, rhythm and blues, and soul singer with a fabulous stage presence. "Mighty Real" was Sylvester’s signature hit. The song was about
authenticity. It’s hard to imagine him bringing anything but realness.
