Our Week In The Web: November 14, 2014

This article is more than 5 years old.

If you spend any time perusing our web properties or listening to the show — otherwise, we're not sure why you're here right now, to be totally honest — you'll notice how much we push people to our Facebook and Twitter feeds. They are an important part of the work we do on air, and a big help to us as we plan and produce future shows. We want your input and feedback; parts you liked, disliked, were bothered by, and more. Seeing as we're only taking live callers for two out of 24 hours in any given day, it can be hard to participate in the conversation if you're hearing our broadcast in a podcast feed or in a different time zone. That's why we want your input here, on Facebook and on Twitter — SnapChat and This. are still up for debate in our newsroom — and why we hope you find the things we share there useful to you as you make your daily reading and listening decisions. That's it for us this week, but we, of course, hope to catch you this weekend online.
