defrag brought us together

Last Friday we had the good fortune to be guests on the Louie Free Show. The recording was posted today in the archives and you can listen to the show here. About an hour into the mp3 we start talking, and the interview lasts 90 minutes.

Much thanks to those who took the time and effort to come to Youngstown and join us. The panelists on the recording are:

- Ken Warren, Lakewood Public Library and Lakewood Observer
- Sherry Linkon, YSU Center for Working Class Studies
- Hunter Morrison, YSU Center for Urban and Regional Studies
- Phil Kidd esq., Defend Youngstown

The discussion revolves around various topics including connecting people with technology, citizen journalism, why history matters, the unique sense of place in Youngstown, and channels to more forward.

This guy was outside the studio:
