We’re kicking off Giving Tuesday early this year! Your donation today will be matched up to $10K, doubling your impact! If you donate $50 today, the Reader will receive $100.

The Reader is now a community-funded nonprofit newsroom. Can we count on your support to help keep us publishing?

Have you noticed that Mike Gebert, he of the mulefoot videos, has a new Sky Full of Bacon podcast up? This one features urban foraging expert Nance Klehm, whose exploits have been covered extensively on this blog by our friend Martha. Yes, that Martha, whose inaugural Soup and Bread event at the Hideout could not be thwarted–even by an armada of fire trucks, Nicor gas trucks, ambulances, and squad cars attending to a gas leak on Wabansia.

What? You say you want more from Martha?

Well, she also pinch hit Food & Drink this week with a fine piece on Josh Deth’s nascent Revolution Brewing Company. So there.
