  1. What a great program! Love watching the podcast on youtube and thanks for that link at the end of the article.
    I like the new living room set up but wish the recording equipment was less obtrusive. Or maybe you could keep on the center shot instead of going back and forth. Just little things. Overall I love the Observing Fullerton podcast. What a great addition to the paper. Thanks!
