George Chidi is not only the best independent investigative journalist I know, not only a humane and compassionate voice, but a terrific writer. Atlanta tells us much more about America today than most folks grasp, and Chidi shows us why, bringing an unvarnished city to your screen.
Ruth Stroud is a warm and terrific writer, whose stories of local foods and people (as well as great recipes) brighten my day, She also partners with her talented husband, Jeff, whose videos on their trips are absolutely worth the watch, especially for foodies and photographers.
Excellent and engaging local history with appeal well beyond Andover, Massachusetts. The town is famous for its Salem witch trial connections, but offers a lot more, as History Buzz's team shows.
Being a parent (and a mother especially) in full-time employment in America is hellacious, and that affects *everyone*. Glad to see two journalists dedicated to tackling issues we desperately need to confront.
This had me at E.M.Forster. Whether your eyes just lit up, whether you are going "Eh?" or whether you're afraid of Virginia Woolf, this is a great chance to learn more about an extraordinary bunch of writers and artists.
Journalist and author Dan Gardner brings a strong understanding of history to his engaging analysis. His humanitarian outlook and humor don't hurt either. This is work you're glad you read, and a breath of fresh air in these strange times.
Want to learn about writing from a real author? Or from an experienced teacher? You don't have to choose, and Alison Acheson is why. A brilliant and personalized approach to your writing, by a writer, for writers.
Whether or not you know Yorkshire, if you're a theatre (or theater) fan, subscribe. This is a wonderful and honest look at a vibrant theatre scene, and such fun to read.
Engrossing stories of real people doing real jobs, by distinguished journalist and author of popular history Neal Bascomb. The pandemic is showing us that real work and the people who do it matter, not just those in (per the late David Graeber's book) Bullshit Jobs. Love Bascomb's historical consciousness, too. Sign up and give it a read!
