Our Week In The Web: April 17, 2015

More than a few of you perhaps been retweeted or fav'd by our host, Tom Ashbrook (@TomAshbrookNPR), on Twitter before. And it's entirely possible he's read your Facebook or Disqus comment live on air during a past broadcast. But, you might be wondering, why doesn't Tom ever reply or like or upvote your comments on Disqus or Facebook? There's a long, complicated answer to that question, but the new answer to the question is that he can and he will! Tom will start diving down into your comments and responding here and there — starting next week — and we want to see what that does to the forum. We honestly have no idea what will happen, but we're excited to see. Stay tuned for the results!
