Norman Brannon is a great guitarist and just as good of a writer and interviewer. If you're into hardcore music, you should already be well acquainted with Anti-Matter. Go subscribe, enjoy the interviews, etc.
You've seen him on TV, but have you ever read him in Substack form? I think not. I have no clue how Jake Tapper plans to use his new newsletter, but I'm sure it will be a smart, witty read that's worth subscribing to.
Margaret Sullivan is one of the smartest, most insightful, and crucial voices in today's media. If you subscribe to The Present Age, you will almost certainly love Sullivan's Media Maelstrom.
My wonderful wife Kayla runs this online shop called Tiny Werewolves (and occasionally writes about art and design). You should check out her newsletter and shop!
Aaron Rupar's Public Notice newsletter is a must-read for anyone trying to keep up with the ins and outs of U.S. politics, how the press covers politics, and why politics matter in our everyday lives.
If you're on the political left and you're not reading Discourse Blog, you're missing out on one of the most essential reads of the 2020s. As its name suggests, Discourse Blog harkens back to the golden age of blogging, free from corporate influence or click-through-rate-obsessed headline workshoppery. If you read The Present Age and think, "Oh wow, I wish there was more stuff like this in the world," Discourse Blog should be the very next subscription you add to your reading list.
