One link to a fascinating piece of journalism, in your inbox daily.

What is this?

We scour the internet for the best stories, and send out the best one we can find each day in a newsletter.

We don’t have particular themes, subjects, or political leanings. The goal is to share interesting content across the spectrum – and to possibly reduce tunnel-vision and expand your worldview.

Sometimes it’s long-form journalism, other times it’s a short blog post. It might even be a tweetstorm occasionally. Just one fascinating thing each day.

Better stories are being told today than ever, and we have access to more journalism than anyone has in history. But, it can be really hard to sift through the whole internet and find one great story to read with your morning coffee or on the train. We’re hoping to provide you with that.

In case you don't like it, we’ll include an unsubscribe button in every email. :)
