Our Week In The Web: March 13, 2015

We're sometimes at a loss to find the best way to capture all of your opinions on our broadcasts, especially those of you who take the time to listen around the country and around the world when we're not still on air. (In case you didn't realize: it's well possible you hear the steady On Point Radio drum beat at at time that isn't live and taking phone call comments to our host). Should we push you to our sometimes unwieldy comment section? Ask you to mention us in a tweet? Encourage a Facebook comment or post that includes your thoughts and helpful additional links? We're not entirely sure, and it ultimately depends on your digital preferences. But we've received more than a few after-hours complaints about phones as of late, which leads us to wonder on better ways to gather and include your as-you-listen thoughts when they occur whenever you listen. There's no new announcement here; just some open conversation starting here while we have your attention.
