Each week, Maura Magazine takes on pop culture with brio; its offerings include in-depth interviews with creators and innovators, incisive commentary on music, movies, sports, and the internet, and indulgent recipes for liquor-filled treats. Maura takes a populist approach to pop culture: It is fun to read without making fun of fans for loving what they love. Maura is open-minded without being empty-headed.
