Introducing Audio Newsletters
A new way to get Public Sphere
I am pleased to report that this newsletter has grown at a breakneck pace over the summer and fall. Many of these readers came from the publications of Ruth Ben-Ghiat and Jill Filipovic, two writers who you should subscribe to if you aren't already. Even after getting many new readers, engagement has remained approximately at the same high level as it was before.
I am introducing a new perk for paid subscribers: audio newsletters. From now on, paid subscribers will get an audio version of this newsletter, which you will be able to download in the Substack app or Apple Podcasts. I hope that this addition will help people who want to listen while they're out walking, cleaning, or working out, etc. (Q&As — and more are in the works — will not get audio, for now.)
These will be sent only to paid subscribers, with one exception -- today. I am including the audio version of last week's newsletter with this missive, to help you make the decision for yourself. Click below to upgrade your subscription. Thank you for reading!
