Take a browse through some of our favorite finds across Substack from the worlds of science, money, culture; plus, walking, bathing, baking, and raging
I thought this subject line was about the ‘bathing award shows’ and that really threw me for a loop this morning
Thank you for including Thao Thai’s essay. Reading it just now felt like taking a warm bath.
Thank you for the shout out! It's our privilege to feature women poets every day. Subscriptions have been and will always be free. Please join us for a poem-a-day in your email!
I’m recommending Autumn Fourkiller’s Dream Interpretation for Dummies: https://open.substack.com/pub/sadboyhowdy?r=5pp&utm_medium=ios
She is thoughtful, hilarious, and almost too insightful
Thank you for the feature!
Did y’all really just push a substack about side hustles which explicitly discouraged monetizing your hobbies? That...uh...feels counterintuitive on this platform...
Great roundup as always. I’m interested in women poets, the shame of shouting, and portals.
Digging The 7 Habits of Freedom--academics. Good lord do we need this! More professors desperately need to stand up for free and open inquiry and free speech on campuses across America. The well-intentioned scourge of identity politics/SJW-obsession/Wokeism has got to go. It’s beyond time. We’re a democracy, not a fascist nation. I will speak my damn mind. The far right and far left are both problematic.
‘Sincere American Writing’
Can I comment?
I am a charter member of Glenn Greenwald along with others, but each time I open GG's account I am asked to upgrade to paid .. Can anyone help me? email@example.com
I always appreciate going through this digest to see what is what.
SubStack-wise I have been reading through Asp Avenue by JD McBride who posts great pieces of creative writing in the form of a serialized novel. The other has been The Colorized History, which (you guessed it!) colorizes historical photographs and then does an accompanying written piece based-off of the subject of the photo. There have been some great newsletters centering upon WWII.
For recreation and for my own SubStack, I have been catching-up on comics, so I just finished reading Superman and the Authority as well as Absolute Carnage.
At the beginning of this year I began my substack Just For The Hell Of It, centered on poetic musings ranging anywhere from the universe to an ant, quiet as a shy moon half hidden behind haze or as boisterously quiet as the noonday sun warming an asphalt avenue in August.
Once in a while I might even interject a poem. There is no membership fee as I don’t look at communication between artists as a moneymaker nor do I ever labor under the illusion the world will be avidly storming my front door for friendship.
But I do decidedly welcome your feedback, your poetry (if you don’t mind reader comments on it) and even an occasional guest column.
I write a new column every Monday if you’d care to join me. Delving in the spirit of ideas, wandering the frontier of metaphor is where we’re headed.
Our latest piece on mourning the death of the paper map is getting great traction:
I subscribe to two substack newsletters which I look forward to every day. But I don't want more mail from substack - how do I unsubscribe without losing the 2 newsletters I love?
Mark Anthony Signorelli from The Classical Corner! His recent essay on the crisis of young men is powerful, incendiary, deeply topical and exquisite reading. https://open.substack.com/pub/classicalcorner/p/culture-and-the-crisis-of-young-men?utm_source=share&utm_medium=android
