For our first podcast episode of 2020, Film Editor Grant Phipps sits down with contributors Edwanike Harbour and Jason Fuhrman to reflect on the experiences they’ve had going to the movies in Madison over the past year, and what they’re hoping 2020 will bring.

We’ll be publishing more film coverage this winter and spring as various local screening series and events get underway, including the lineup at UW Cinematheque and the 2020 Wisconsin Film Festival. Check out our roundup of our best film coverage from 2019 and Grant’s preview of Cinematheque’s spring 2020 season with Project Assistant Zachary Zahos.

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.


If you make a new monthly donation today, NewsMatch will match it 24x! Will you help us continue to tell Madison's stories?
