Our Week In the Web: June 05, 2015

This article is more than 4 years old.

What subsidiary materials do you as a listener want to go along with our daily two hour broadcast? For an hour on the joys and struggles of modern shepherding, for example — does a slideshow of sheep do the trick? Or how about an hour exploring the uber-fication of our broader economy — does a helpful Wall Street Journal graphic and list of new on-demand apps help extend the conversation? We're all about pushing the conversation above and beyond the 45 minutes we have live on air, and we're constantly working out the best way to do so on our website. (Beyond redesigning the entire thing, which IS HAPPENING, TRUST US.) So an open-ended question here today on the Internet: what do you want from us? Let us know in the comments below, or on Facebook, Tumblr and @OnPointRadio.
