Transparent Government If government -- from your local school board to the U.S. Capitol -- operated in secret, how much would you trust it? On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll talk to open government advocates about the public's right to know. We'll offer expert advice on how to access public records and keep tabs on your government. Plus, we'll explore how technology is helping to make government more transparent. Join us Wednesday at 9 on 90.3.
