Our Week In The Web: December 19, 2014

We usually use this space to talk about trends or habits on our digital space this week, but instead we're going to talk about something completely different. (And now, we're not going to talk about the final episode of Serial.) Rather, we're here this week to say sorry for sharing weirdly incorrect links. Our internal Content Managing System offers helpful, easily shareable links for all of our programs. But this week, for whatever reason, we shared incorrect links at multiple times. We'd like to blame the CMS, or Twitter, or our email client, but really, it was a personal flaw. And for that, we're sorry. The best way this can resolve itself? You find a new hour of our program and get 45 new minutes of audio bliss. The bad? Your attempts to read or share or listen to a particular hour were foiled by technological mishap. We're leaning strongly on the former, but we get if you don't agree. Mea culpa, dear friends. Mea culpa.
