Hi all, I am currently on the hunt for some nice newsletters for my email. I ran into "Big" by Matt Stoller on here and I really enjoy it. I guess I am looking for something in a similiar enomonic, political, or macro vein, science works as well. Any and all recommendations are welcome.
I highly recommend Matt Levine's "Money Stuff" newsletter (link to today's): https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2019-07-17/facebook-s-crypto-annoys-everyone
He usually sends it out every weekday morning, and it's mostly finance/business-oriented. I really like his writing style—he writes in a very conversational manner, and does a really good job of explaining complicated topics. I occasionally skip over some sections when he gets a little too deep into the weeds on some finance topics for my taste, but overall it's excellent. There's always a little collection of random links to articles at the bottom of each one too, and I almost always find at least one or two of those enjoyable as extra reads as well.
oh wow, you were right about that conversational manner! His style makes somewhat dry topics feel like a light read. I love the footnotes. Thanks for this.
Judd Legum's Popular Information has been infuriatingly good, there's a paid version or just the free weekly article. They are all very enlightening and are essentially a form of accountability journalism.
I've been a longtime subscriber of the inside.com range of newsletters. I've been quite happy with the sort of news and style they present, and there is a very wide range of topics available to choose from.
Alexis Madrigal 5it newsletter, not as regular as a few years ago, still provides interesting links with a summary. I find it interesting because it shows me a kind-of Black-mirror-esk state of the world.
We had a good post on newsletters awhile back here for some solid recommendations.
Copying over my suggestions from that thread here.
Overnight Energy & Environment from The Hill – It’s a nice daily round-up of the latest energy and environmental news from a federal perspective.
Today’s stories included:
Daily Pnut – Great daily overview of international and U.S. news, interesting quotes, and a huge selection of links and articles to great in-depth topics.
Today’s highlights included:
Right Richter by Will Sommer of the Daily Beast – Weekly Wednesday overview of various right wing media stories.
This week’s stories were:
The Nancy Pelosi fancy water hoax - A week after the State of the Union, a significant percent of the pro-Trump internet has become convinced that Nancy Pelosi was drinking out of some baroque water contraption during the speech, rather than out of a humble glass.
Steve Bannon wants to make Trump’s Wall out of hemp
George Papadopoulos courts QAnon conspiracy theory on Twitter
Will Sommer reviews a movie made by pro-Trump YouTube personalities “The Dip Run”*
Colin Wright's Let's Know Things newsletter is pretty good I find - a small curated list of interesting articles about a wide variety of subjects. I don't usually read them all, just the ones I'm interested in, but there's never been an email without at least one article on a subject I'm curious about. Well worth your time!
I have been subscribed to Data is Plural to get ahold of interesting datasets to analyze.
Thanks all for the newsletters linked! I will really appreciate getting these throughout the week to read some interesting stuff!
I've been a happy subscriber to the browser (paid) for quite a while now. Daily set of links to wide-ranging articles.
Recently I added the prepared, about logistics and manufacturing. I'm not in the field, but looking past the job listing it often has interesting links about how the world of stuff and tech actually works.
