Sizzling prose from my very favorite activist/polemicist journalist.
- Paul Lukas
MLB radio broadcaster Jesse Agler is a great guy, a shrewd baseball observer, and a great storyteller. Welcome to his world.
If you appreciate my own take on the inconspicuous details of the world around us, you'll love Ted Anthony's approach as well. Trust me.
The great podcaster Avery Trufelman has a new show about the history and influence of Ivy League apparel. This newsletter has accompanying photos, bonus info, etc.
If you like old signs (neon, painted, etc.), mid-century storefronts, Atomic Age architecture, and so on, this is the Substack for you!
Really good coverage of how football has evolved into the game we love today.
Excellent coverage of the New York Mets.
Awesome (and very entertaining!) urban reporting by the great Anne Kadet, who explores questions like, "Why does NYC have two bagel shops located next door to each other?"
Best soccer writer in the business (and a hell of a nice chap to boot).
Brilliantly funny writing about food/cooking/etc. So good I don't even mind the purple color scheme.
Really interesting, well-written content about NC minutiae. Fascinating stuff even if you don't particularly care about NC!
Record reviews from the guy who basically invented modern rock criticism.
Excellent advice and observations on how to build your awareness of things that other people tend to overlook.
