Our Week In The Web: March 11, 2016

This article is more than 3 years old.

Greetings, Internet! You might notice that sometimes our show topics change last minute — this Wednesday's switch to an extended conversation about Sen. Bernie Sanders' poll-defying victory in Michigan's Democratic presidential primary, for example — and sometimes we change the titles and photos involved with the program, too. (Honestly, this Wednesday's program on Sanders and the role of Turkey in the ongoing refugee crisis is the best, most recent example for this.) We're wondering if changes like this are confusing to you as a listener — especially our digital listeners. IS there an easier way to make these changes that doesn't shuttle content around on our website? We think there is, and we're eager to explore those choices on our brand new website -- the beta version of which is currently available for your use and critical feedback. We always of course want to hear from you, especially on these kinds of issues — let us know in the comments below, or on Facebook, Tumblr and @OnPointRadio.
