Documentary about online harassment

I’m making a documentary about women and online harassment. Specifically, I’m making an episodic documentary (that means you don’t have to wait for the whole thing to be finished, since it will be released in episodes) about harassment and civility in the online world, how it relates to women and how some women are fighting […]

Shit is getting real in today's Spanish-immersion-while-getting-ready-for-work lesson. Cuz lookit, Los Vegetales have got some shit to overcome and beliefs to challenge. I mean, for real. But La Zanhoria is pretty good about expressing its emotional needs to Elmo and they just had un baile that was pretty sweet so I think Elmo is going to help them out even though right now he's only talking about their colors.  #sesameamigos

Chairman Meow and the year without him

A year ago today, I said goodbye to my cat, the great and mighty Chairman Meow. Cats, it is said, are fine until they aren’t, and such was the case with him. People who aren’t “animal people” perhaps won’t understand the fascinating, intuitive bond between creatures and their humans, nor the type of protective, wistful […]

A word on cats, death and friends from the trenches

Met up with Danielle today, one of my favorite people, a friend with whom I feel like I once fought a mind-war. (Not against her, never against her, but with her. Us against The Man, as much as The Man exists in newsrooms, anyway.) She now devotes her considerable journalism and digital chops to a no-kill animal rescue […]

#GuthGauntlet on Chicagoist

Chicagoist wrote this about my #GuthGauntlet project, and I thank them for doing so. The hashtag refers, for those uninitiated, to my walk home in the evenings after radio, through the most batshit of batshittiest areas of drunken debauchery. Seeing as I how this all goes down as I’m leaving work at 2am, I walk […]

#UseYourWerds: now in card form

When I need a minute, I do a mash-up for calligraphy and clunky hand-lettering. It’s my own kind of calligraphy. By my “own kind” I mean, of course, that it’s uplifting and optimistic, but full of swearing and pointed messaging. After posting these creations and sketches to Instagram for the past few months with the […]

Jonny Imerman, The Sole Revival and The Real Elf

This week on WGN Radio, esteemed producer Kate Gibson and I got off to a late start even though we were super excited for the show! Our Blackhawks were (pats them on the head) “trying very hard” on the west coast, so we didn’t make it onto the air until almost 1 a.m. We passed […]

Movies, tamales and beer (and other amazing joys on live radio)

This weekend, on WGN Radio, esteemed producer Kate Gibson and I talked with RedEye movie critic Matt Pais about this week’s Oscar nominations and snubs, with the guys from the oldest food truck in Chicago: The Tamale Spaceship (you know the guys; they’re the awesome dudes wearing lucha libra wrestling masks!) and we talked about the […]
