This week, by listener request: an extra-long episode discussing behind-the-scenes ups and downs of WarTron GC! (Just to be clear, the request was for “a peek behind the curtain,” not the extra length.)

  1. Speaking of awesome volunteers, I have a request: whenever there's some "credits page" for WarTron, I want photos of volunteers. Because I don't know any of the Portland folks, but I suspect they're pretty cool. But right now in my head they're all just like "The other one at light bikes" or whatever.

    Maybe a good way to talk about the dry run would be "The N biggest things that changed because of the dry run"
