Why subscribe?

This newsletter will appear daily. Most editions will be short blog posts. Some will be longer essays. And many editions will be follow-ups to an aborted project that I called Fantasy Intellectual Teams. In that project, readers identified public intellectuals that they thought would score highly according to criteria I specified. I still follow those intellectuals, and thus I write “keeping up with the FITs.”

The written content here is free. I have live events over Zoom that are for paid subscribers only. In 2022, there will be about one live event per month. Some may be events where I interview a main guest and then allow questions from the audience. Other events may be discussions of a book that I select.

As an experiment, as of mid-November I am moving my blog here. One of my achievements on the blog was getting a comment section that was not a total sewer, where readers sometimes suggested links or offered thoughts that I found helpful. I hope for the same here.
