Producer Notes:

I followed the Cornerstone festival for most of my life as it was in my home state.  But I never actually attended the event until the last run, when I went to two of the last three years.  I went to the final Cornerstone in July 2012 as I watched the bitter-sweet ending to a truly historic annual event.  We quickly put together a podcast to pay tribute to Cornerstone, but I knew I could not do it alone because I only had limited personal exposure to the fest.  So we recruited a roundtable of folks who were impacted in deep ways by Cornerstone, including John J. Thompson, Tim Hudson, and Todd Hertz.  This was the first time we ever added a roundtable of guests like this, and I was really proud of how it turned out.  (Dave)
