As a follow up to our experiment of asking people to check in with The Takeaway as they go about their daily lives, we turn to the man who suggested the project to begin with, our producer Jim Colgan. He joins us to explain why listeners, like our other guest, Richard Lavely, would want to call in and why others just didn't get it.

For more on this experiment, listen to our earlier segment, then to our even earlier segment, read Jim Colgan's Producer's Note on the fun of playing with the radio, and check out Senior Editor Scott Lamb's post on the absurd of satisfaction of playing Foursquare.
