In our ongoing experimentation with the form and content of our news delivery, we have embarked upon a new project with our associates at the San Francisco Examiner. Where before, both of us had radio shows on internet station Best Frequencies Forever, now the Weekly and the Examiner have joined forces and created a Voltron-like media program from the giant robot lions of each paper's editorial staff. It's called "The Extra Extra Show," and we're using it to expand on stories we cover in both publications each week. You can listen live every Friday, 10 a.m.-noon, or play the podcast over the weekend, when you want to get caught up on the week's stories, perhaps with a Bloody Mary. It'll make it easier to shout back at us.

Full disclosure: These first weeks are pretty experimental, getting a feel for what works. (Radio being a new technology.) We'll be introducing new features and playing around with format, but we want to know what you think, or what you'd like to hear, or what's just not working at all. Do you want more crooning? More drive-time radio talk with characters named stuff like "Weekly" and "The 'Zam"?

Anyway, let us know how we're doing. We look forward to hearing from you about hearing us.

Here's where our show will live on the site.

Here's our first episode, in which we get the hang of the damn thing and talk elections, disappearance, and crime.

Here's our second episode, out today, in which we discuss the City of Perpetual Adolescence, a subject near to our San Franciscan hearts and the theme of this week's cover story.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
