The Way

The Way

For pilgrims of the Camino de Santiago trail, the journey never ends
He's not sure when he first heard about the Way, as it's known, or exactly why he decided to take that first journey at age 50. But after walking 1,500 miles of the Camino de Santiago trail — a feat that required three trips (2003, '07, '12) snaking through parts of Belgium, France and Spain — Fr.


A new game of old characters transfixes the nation, and Spokane
In 45 minutes, we caught a Psyduck, Diglett, Growlithe, Drowzee, Spearow, Pidgey, Krabby and even more of their fellow Pokémon denizen. The Pokémon are plentiful in downtown Spokane's Riverfront Park — so much so that the park's Canada Island has been nicknamed "Pokémon Island" by locals camping out there for hours to catch the elusive creatures.


A welcome return, monstrous comic and disastrous novel
MUSIC | Fans have been aching for a follow-up for years now, but the long wait is almost over. Later this summer, LOCAL NATIVES is releasing its third studio album, following up on the success of 2013's Hummingbird.

Digging for History

On the job at an archaeological survey of Riverfront Park
The first thing that lets you know that the Indiana Jones franchise lied to you is the hats. Ashley Morton and James Burr Harrison do not have cool hats.

Time is of the Essence

The works on display in the Jundt Museum's newest exhibition won't be around forever
Every third year since 2001, Gonzaga University's Jundt Art Museum has invited several local artists to decorate a selection of its walls by drawing directly on them. After a matter of weeks, the walls are painted over, the artists' works never to be seen again.

Let the Wanderlust Win

Why you shouldn't let anything hold you back from traveling
Many evenings I paced the floor of my tiny Spokane apartment, trying to work up the courage to call up friends and go out. Too nervous, I would often surrender to the comfort of my bed, a bowl of ice cream and a slew of Netflix shows.

Television | UnREAL

Deliciously self-aware hypocrisy that you'll want to watch
When you create a TV show, you have choices. You can create the sort of sexist show that leers at hot women in tiny bikinis.

For Your Consideration

Tech-centric TV, a wholly original game and classic Kills
MUSIC | Since their 2003 debut, indie/garage rock band the Kills have been refining their distinctive style and winning fans over with their plentiful personality. The band, comprised of singer Alison Mosshart and guitarist Jamie Hince, went on hiatus in 2013 when Hince suffered a hand injury that necessitated numerous surgeries and forced him to relearn to play his instrument from scratch.

Princess Fever

Ever wonder what it's like to become a princess for a living? These Spokane women can tell you
"One time, I watched a movie about you!" proclaims 5-year-old Piper Lee. "What's a movie?"


Mobius Science Center opens its new location with a revealing exhibit
It's taken years for Mobius Science Center to find the right spot. When it opened in 2012, it was right in the middle of a retail sector downtown, which is not an ideal location for a museum, says CEO Phil Lindsey.

For Your Consideration

A stirring debut, surreal sitcom and reading the G.O.A.T.
ALBUM | "I've got to get out of this tree, off of this limb. I'm a woman acting like a kid," Margaret Glaspy sings on the title track of her new album EMOTIONS AND MATH, but the 12 songs filling this excellent debut mark the 27-year-old singer/guitarist as mature beyond her years.

Learning to Stand Up Again

Marc Maron hits up Spokane for the first time, returning to his stand-up roots
Marc Maron is a guy who never thought he'd be here. At one time he used cocaine and alcohol with abandon; he took any job he could get in show business (game show host is among his credits).

Finding a Deeper Meaning

How an EWU professor sees the intersection of pop culture and philosophy
Some people take TV shows and movies too seriously. For me, it was The Matrix.

You Can Do This

Outdoors Issue
The Great Outdoors. Yeah, that's a bit of a cliché, in addition to the title of an underrated John Candy/Dan Aykroyd film.

Start With a Tent...

Camping is basically just sleeping outside. Here's how to get started
Many Inland Northwest residents consider it criminal to miss out on the natural wonders readily available here, and can't imagine life without occasionally packing up and hitting the backcountry, away from the travails of city life. I plead guilty to neglecting our outdoorsy opportunities, particularly backpacking and camping.

Fighting Back

After losing pieces of themselves, a boxer and his coach form a bond
In a garage in north Spokane that's been converted into a boxing gym, Jacob Szilasi gets ready to go to work. He gives each nostril a blast of nasal spray to help him breathe through a nose that's been punched more than once, straps on a pair of red Nike boxing shoes and warms up by jumping rope.
