Teddy de Groot spiels on the best and/or most unscrupulous Athenian ever.

In a video recorded at last month’s edition of Nerd Nite Madison, UW-Madison grad student Teddy de Groot takes us on a frenzied and fittingly profane journey through the life of Alcibiades, a singular figure who punched, double-crossed, and screwed his way across classical Greece. The next Nerd Nite Madison takes place this Wednesday, April 29 at the High Noon Saloon. Video shot and edited by Nicholas Ritz, audio recorded by Joel Shanahan.

At a time when Madison is going through a lot of change, we want Tone Madison to be something you can count on. You can rely on us to spotlight the artists, musicians, and ideas that make up the fabric of our city. You can rely on us to challenge the status quo with inventive, adversarial journalism, including our coverage of abortion rights, housing, and labor. 


But here's the thing: reader support is crucial our survival. We'll keep writing the articles you love (or love to hate) for as long as we can—but we need your help to keep our small, independent publication going.
