Matt Barr's podcast, Looking Sideways, is a consistently good listen. It delves into the stories, characters and themes of those who pursue creative and alternative lifestyles through action sports. This newsletter is both an extension of the podcast and a collection of all the other quality, controversial, or in-vogue stories from alternative sports you might have missed.
Devin Kelly's writing is simply beautiful, regardless of subject. Much like good poetry, these weekly essays are writing you can feel. This newsletter is an insight into both his mind and poetry I'd otherwise never know. It's a reminder that poetry can still be vital.
I love great profile writing, and this is a one-stop-shop to find it. What Polina has created with The Profile is unique, and the kind of idea you wish you'd thought of first. That being said, it must take a lot of commitment to reading! Ultimately, Polina does the hard work in succinctly packaging the best profile writing online, and this saves you time.
