Our Week In The Web: February 12, 2016

This article is more than 3 years old.

Is this blog post a repeat? Not really! We're drawing your attention, again, to the fact that we have a newsletter — and its focus is changing. All this week and last, our news analyst Jack Beatty offered his take on the changing — and ultimately surprising — New Hampshire Presidential Primary. We're going to continue to offer a newsletter, and it will continue to provide insight and analysis from Jack, our host Tom Ashbrook and others on staff. But it also will highlight shows from our archives, our favorite broadcasts of each week and special extras from the week. This week, for example, we take extra time to highlight this delightful bit of audio, featuring Tom signing up for Tinder for the first time. Like all of our digital projects, this is a space we're constantly adapting and adjusting, and we, as always, appreciate your feedback, in the comments below, or on Facebook, Tumblr and @OnPointRadio.
