Wow, great coverage! Hearing member's voices makes it more personal -- much better than type on a screen.

It sounds like everyone had a good meetup.

By the way, do you know if Julie Grant was/is a reporter for NPR? She sounds familiar.

Again, congrats on the coverage and success of the meetup!

Awesome! I enjoyed listening to the broadcast, even if the reporter sounded a little condescending sometimes.

LOL @ souped-down rides though

That was great! Congrats on taking the initiative, Mullet.

I love the comment: "checking out souped down cars."
