We pride ourselves on hard-hitting, investigative news stories as well as cutting-edge arts coverage. In addition to feature stories, The Reader publishes an alternative health column; and a poetic and mysterious horoscope written by a local blues artist. We also vigorously cover the local independent music scene that has made music one of Omaha's #1 exports.
