Tags and Summaries

Thanks to Windigo and bjb for sending in updates in the past month.

Over the period 25 shows have had tags and/or summaries added.

If you would like to contribute to the tag/summary project visit the summary page at https://hackerpublicradio.org/report_missing_tags.php and follow the instructions there.

This page has been extended this month by the addition of a list of tags at the end. Each tag is followed by the show numbers which use that tag, each being a link to the show.

The thinking is that if you are considering which tags to add to a show without them you can look through this list to find out whether other people have used the tag and in what context.
