The Arizona Daily Star Opinion team has been hosting a weekly Zoom chat on Thursdays at 2 p.m. (Meeting ID: 935 4617 8115 Passcode: 346308) for over a year now. We have loved getting to know our readers better, and our readers keep joining the chat each week looking forward to each new guest.
We have had bee experts, government officials, grief support counselors, authors, reporters, local organization leaders and so many more. Here are some of our upcoming guests — we hope you join us.
Look for the individual announcements each week, which will include the Zoom ID and password, or you can email Opinion coordinator Sara Brown for a link at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have suggestions for a guest, send those to Sara, too.
