Our Week In The Web: March 25, 2016

This article is more than 3 years old.

Now, we're entirely aware that you may not know about our show SoundCloud account. And that's okay! But we want to make you aware of it, highlight the fact that it's entirely back up and running — including all of the many, many hours of archival content — and ask what you think of SoundCloud as a source of audio segments. In the few months since our SoundCloud went temporarily dark, we've been posting audio segments directly to our internal audio stream, placing those short segments on our podcast feed, directly on our website (and, conveniently, directly on the beta version of our new website.) What works better for you? Do you prefer audio on SoundCloud, in our podcast feed, or somewhere entirely different? (If you have audio suggestions, by all means, let us know!) These clips and segments and broadcast hours are only useful if they find their way into your waiting ears and minds, so we want to know what's best for you as we move forward. Let us know in the comments below, or on Facebook, Tumblr and @OnPointRadio and at OnPointNPR AT gmail DOT com.
