B-town Errant’s SoapBox

The Editors of the B-Town Errant simply aim to offer their ruminations as twice-chewed pasture grass. Take some time and graze with us.

B-town Errant’s Mission

B-town Errant is an online magazine and community that amplifies and ruminates current news and other media sources. While we aren’t journalists in the field, we hope to make some more sense about what is being written about the world around us. B-town Errant’s goal is to encourage its readers to engage with media using a critical eye, “critical” in the sense of taking more time to consider perspective, motivation, implication and consequence well beyond the instantaneous and impulsive news reporting most of us read. B-town Errant hopes to serve as a trusted filter and an alternative information source, providing the kind of cud that you’ll want to chew on for awhile.

The Faces of B-town Errant

B-town Errant is published by Douglas Storm, Editor-in-Chief, and Sarah Stup, Web Content Manager & Contributing Writer.
