This is Champaign Showers. It’s a blog and podcast network.

This is how the blog got its name:

The goal of the podcast network is to create an ecosystem for local podcasts. A place that you can go to listen to an episode about local music at one moment, and Illini sports the next.

The goal of the blog is to collect local news and package it into a concise blog post every (week)day. The site will always give credit the content producer via both a link to the writer’s Twitter account and a link to the content itself.

CS does not exist to steal clicks from others, but rather to amplify important news in a way that’s easy to check once a day.

There will absolutely be snark. Sometimes it will be off-putting.

There will not be sponsored content.

If you like what you read, you can leave a tip here.

If you want to get in touch, Twitter DMs, Facebook Messenger and Email will always be available.
