NPR's Kitchen Sisters -- radio trailblazers at finding hidden kitchens near and far-- are launching a new project. There's a contest to name it (wild boar dinner with Angelo Garro anyone?) and chance to submit your very own story about girls. And women. Interested? Behold the details, as laid out by the Sisters themselves on their blog:
The Kitchen Sisters are looking for stories and images and videos and writings. We're launching a new multimedia series on NPR this January, a listener collaboration in the tradition of Hidden Kitchens, Lost & Found Sound, and The Sonic Memorial Project. This one's about girls. Girls and the women they become. Stories of coming of age, rituals and rites of passage, secret identities. Of women who crossed a line, broke a trail, changed the tide. Small everyday stories, dramatic life and death stories. Stories from the middle of the city, to the middle of nowhere.

What women should we know about? What girl's story should we tell? The famous, the infamous, the unknown, the untold. Women with public lives. Women with secret lives.

Call our NPR Storyline at 202-408-9576 and tell us your story, or the story of someone we need to chronicle. Or email us at

As for the contest, if you submit the winning name for the upcoming NPR series, you'll get called out on the Sisters' Web site, score the full line of Kitchen Sisters products and productions, and an invitation to a wild boar dinner with forager Angelo Garro, the guy Michael Pollan made famous in The Omnivore's Dilemma. And the thrill of hearing NPR guy Steve Inskeep pronounce it on air. Over and over again.

  • 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.'"
