Welcome to those of you that are joining us by way of the Fairfield, Iowa radio program Speaking Freely with Dennis Raimondi. A special thanks to Dennis for having myself, our founder Bill Wachtel and advisory board member John Bonifaz on the program yesterday. Here are a couple of links we discussed on the show: the Why Tuesday? Candidate Challenge, and how to become a Why Tuesday? correspondent.

If you missed the program, it’s archived on KRUU’s website, and available to listen to by clicking here. Thanks to Barb Fix in the station office for getting the audio online and passing it along.
