Our Week In The Web: October 3, 2014

This article is more than 5 years old.

Context is important, and it's something we strive for here, on our air and in our web presence. It's also something that can be hard in the constant stream of social media feeds. When we post links to quotes and stories on our Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr accounts, we want your input and engagement. At a base level, sure, we want you to listen to our show through those links and hit "PLAY" on the web player. But we also want your opinions, and thoughts, and yes, your pushback. It's something we thought a lot about this week, off and on, and something we're writing here because this is the place where we acknowledge trends and habits online. We don't want to trick you or mix up quotes, and if we do, feel free to call us out on it.
