When we say that we care about your opinion on air, we really mean it. We've written here before about how important your voice is in our production and broadcasting process, but we also especially mean it when we talk about our weekly news roundtable discussions every Friday. We want to know what stories you've been reading and watching before we put together our weekly discussion of the headlines, and we're trying to play around with new ways of figuring that out. We already ask you on Facebook and Twitter, but a tweet from a longtime fan today made us realize that a lot of you just aren't getting through to us with the stories you care about. What's the best way to make those connections? What's the easiest way for you to share the stories you care about with us every week? Let us know in the comments below, or on Facebook, Tumblr and @OnPointRadio.

"Well I lost all my hives this year with at least one swarming the others I have no clue to the causality as the beetles are are (were) under control, no wax moths, no varroa mites etc etc. I do believe it is neonicotinoids but it will be too late before anything in the US is done  about stopping the evil of Monsanto."
