Here are the big stories that subscribers will get to read before anyone else:

Call of the Wild: After months spent indoors, you’re probably craving a little time in the great outdoors. Ashley Primis and Christine Speer Lejeune provide a Philadelphian’s guide to stretching your legs, clearing your head, and shaking off your cabin fever in the great wide open.

Remnants on a South Philly Stoop: Chef Omar Tate caught the attention of the restaurant world with a roving pop-up that explores and celebrates the Black American food experience. Now Tate is back in Philly, and food critic Jason Sheehan shares the chef’s big plans for this city — which go well beyond food.

Proving His Religion: The John Templeton Foundation has been shoveling money at researchers in an effort to reconcile religion and science. Deputy editor Sandy Hingston asks: Is it just some billionaire’s pie-in-the-sky dream — or the key to human happiness?

A City on Its Ass, A Team on Top: The 1980 Phillies gave a skeptical, down-on-its-luck town something it had never seen before: a World Series championship. Writer Robert Huber shares how it all went down, in the players’ own words.
