Re: “Indie-nogo? Studying a vegan's tall tales

I have an hour of a recorded interview with you, Shane, and several shorter interviews recorded with Gina. I also have copies of email correspondence confirming conversations between the three of us. I also have copies of your conversations with others in our community. I will share as much of that as you wish for me to, if you like.
You have not been threatened by me, nor lied about.
But since you seem to wish to set the record straight, why don't you bring these "licenses" that you hold by our office for verification — and please don't forget your driver's license. And we'll be happy to look further into your identity. We greatly look forward to meeting the real Shane.

Re: “Barrel roll

Culinarian and Corey: I am in touch with chef Matthews and do indeed base my journalism inside of factual reporting. Which is why you don't see me reporting on Matthews being booted from the Bourbon Brothers realm. I already conveyed this to Corey inside of a personal correspondence. If you have information that you would like to bring to light, feel free to contact me at the INDY.

Re: “Da Mi Korean, Larkburger, Marco's Pizza

I don't believe that much is organic. On their website, click on the "keeping it natural" tab under "about us." (…) One of our grievances when we reviewed them last may (…) was that they served commercial meat, which felt a bit like greenwashing considering the other care for sustainability.
