Kansas City Hipsters Share Love For Dead-Tree Media

Newspapers and print publications are dying but, thankfully, books are still going strong and even increasing in sales as more people are desperate for a break from the digital world.

"Normally, The Pitch goes into a themed print issue with a theme in mind. Once in a while, the writers seem to just be ~vibing~ on the same frequency, and we discover that the whole team has their passions aligned. Such is the case of this September issue. We expected our primary stories to circle the transition into a new school year, coronavirus spikes, and the return of concerts.
