  Beast of Main Street

Bicycling Route 66 in a Pandemic

“it touched me … You can see and hear (the) emotion!”

— Sasha-Ann Simons, WBEZ Chicago public radio

𝐇𝐨𝐩 𝐨𝐧 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐫𝐢𝐝𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞 𝐝𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐚 𝐩𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐦𝐢𝐜.

The Beast of Main Street tells the compelling, funny, emotional stories of people in the time of a Covid surge.

It’s a fascinating, original piece of “slow journalism” from a journalist bicycling 2,500 miles from Chicago to Los Angeles along “America’s Main Street,” the fabled Route 66.

  Beast of Main Street will change the way you think of the pandemic of our time.




The Story Cycle

America’s Coasts in Climate Crisis 

This epic climate project gathers 400 insightful interviews while bicycling for nearly a year, 7,000 miles and across 21 states along the Atlantic, Pacific & Gulf coasts!

It is an exciting slow journalism project and forthcoming book about living in the climate and reporting on the climate during the hottest year in recorded history. It’s been a bizarre weather year and nowhere more dramatically played out than on America’s coasts.

Comerford conducted micro-interviews on climate change with ordinary people asking their views and experiences.

From Maine to Key West on the Pacific Coast. From Seattle to San Diego on the Pacific Coast. From Texas to the tip of Florida on the Gulf of Mexico. There were atmospheric rivers, bomb cyclones, snowstorms, windstorms, flooding, levee breaks and mudslides and people living with the bizarre swings in weather.
