Chicago, IL- Saltine, performer at Berlin, The iO Theater and the Annoyance Theater, is recording her podcast, Saltine's Newsletter, live at Scarlet Bar in Boystown August 28th at 8:30 p.m. and every fourth Tuesday of the month following.

"My podcast is the bastard child of the structure of Prairie Home Companion and the filth of Lady Bunny. Resulting in what I call A Faggy Homo Companion." - Saltine

In this fictionalized podcast, Saltine presents you with horoscopes, letters from prison, and classified ads all written and presented by her editorial staff of up and coming comedians, including Eunji Kim, Becca Slack, Dina Facklis, Mike Brunlieb and more!

Each show will have a special guest Advice Columnist from the drag, comedy or art world, answering your questions sent in to our Facebook.

Additionally, each show will include Saltine's Cereal: the fiction portion of the podcast where we follow the story of Andrew Feeney, an anxious, sober gay man living in Edgewater in Chicago trying to find happiness in an alcohol saturated community.

Episodes are released the first and third Tuesdays of the month. Listen to our past episodes here.

Scarlet Bar is located at 3320 N Halsted St. Chicago IL. 773-348-1053.

A quick walk from the Belmont red line stop, at Buckingham and Halsted. No cover to get in. Drink specials: $1 well drinks from 8-9PM, $5 fireball, $5 house bombs and $9 pitchers.

About Saltine's creator Cody Sullivan- Born and raised in Massachusetts, Cody Sullivan is a writer and performer currently living in Chicago. A graduate of Massachusetts College of Art and Design from the Studio for Interrelated Media with a focus on performance, Cody is a drag performer at Berlin Nightclub and Scarlet Bar as well as an improvisor at the iO Theater in Chicago.
