Thanks for joining us, folks, at our noon Google+ Hangout on Air about health care and the Florida governor’s race. Missed us? Check out the replay.

You can also click on highlights from our Q&A.

Fact-checkers Jon Greenberg of PunditFact and Joshua Gillin of PolitiFact Florida joined PolitiFact editor Angie Drobnic Holan for a Google+ Hangout On Air.

Gillin recently dug into political attacks in the race between Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist. Greenberg looked at pundits’ comments on a recent report about health insurance rolls.

Two weeks ago, we tried the new format for taking your questions. You told us you’d come back and bring your friends.

"Thanks for doing this, guys! It does definitely help the rest of us understand the process and issues you run into," said one viewer.

We've now done two such hangouts, and would love to hear your feedback.

If you missed our noon broadcast on April 3, here’s a taste. You can also watch the full half-hour. (We had brief audio problems that resolve at 0:47.)

If you’re new to Hangout on Air, here’s how it works:

• Have a Google+ account? (Hint: If you use Gmail, you probably do.) Sign in. Ask us a question.

• Don’t use Google+? That’s fine — you can watch right here. We also tweeted the highlights from @politifact with #politifacthangout.

We may do this twice a month so let us know what you think.
