Bread and Circus Magazine is an independent network of writers focusing on culture. We’re a place to meet and start a conversation.  Since launching in 2007, we’ve featured articles on  art, cinema, pop culture, media and politics, the environment, the power of myth, and myriad other topics and ideas.

We don’t have an axe to grind or an agenda to push. Instead, we offer articles for you to think about.
