Beyond the Bubble

Every year, The Post chooses special topics and issues to feature as special projects, landing pages and print tabloids. While these special issues have sort of ranged in topics, a staple for The Post over the past couple years has been the “Beyond the Bubble” issue.

Spanning outside of downtown Athens, the Beyond the Bubble issue has notoriously been The Post’s way to show off Southeast Ohio and Appalachia. While we’re continuing to do that this year, we’ve also expanded our coverage for 2020’s issue. With many reporters working remotely from their hometowns due to COVID-19, we decided this issue was a great way for Post reporters, photographers and more to not only cover Southeast Ohio, but also entities in their own hometowns.
