Every week before our show we host a Google+ Hangout preshow that anyone can join, give feedback and help shape our show.
We use this preshow to go over what we want to talk about, get some early thoughts out and get feedback from listeners. This is also a great time for listeners to suggest show topics and give feedback.
The whole preshow is very informal and people are welcome to come and go as they please. If there is enough demand we might host some smaller preshows at night on Google+ where people can suggest show topics and discuss issues that they care about.
Typically we have this preshow in the early afternoon on Wednesdays, but sometimes we have to change the schedule. We both tweet out and post on Google+ about the hangout before it happens. You can find us on these networks:
