I started a blog in October of 2003 and this newsletter offers the same: photos, enthusiasms (contextualized links), interviews, essays, and mixes. Joe Levy and Heidi DeRuiter edit all of the newsletter posts.

Please pay if you can. If you signed up with an email address, you’re “subscribed”; there’s no paywall, no subscriber-only posts, so you’ll receive all the posts there are in your inbox or in the app, depending on your settings. But if you like what you get, please remember anything you give helps. That said, we need you more than we need your money, though, so keep reading.

Some weeks, you get an update; some weeks, you get an interview or an essay. Sometimes, you get both. Below are some examples.


If you can’t find the newsletter, check your spam folder. And please mark this address as ‘not spam.’ If the newsletter isn’t in your spam folder, either, you should look in the Promotions tab.
