The name says it all- beautiful, enthralling dispatches from the land of the Pharaohs is a constant delight. And the breathtaking photography is just the icing on the cake.
Mark is the James Brown of Substack- in that he's the hardest working man in the business. Whether he can do the splits, however, is something that I can neither confirm nor deny.
Frank is carrying the flame of the pulp tradition forward as both historian and practitioner. 100% the real deal with his prose.
Olli is a real appreciator and raconteur of the good life of feasting and appreciating and enjoying the company of friends around a table. His ‘Principles of Contemporary Home Cooking’ book is a classic and deserves to sell a million copies.
Stay Grounded is the single best online resource for people who want to learn to become more mindful about their screen time and to get the most out of their devices without becoming addicted to them. Essential reading for the Information Age.
The name 'Pr0ph3t' says it all- He is a writer who combines optimism, technological understanding, deep theological conviction and genuine philosophical insight. His writing is utterly unique and sorely needed in today's world. Essential reading.
This is my favourite podcast in the world and some of the greatest satire of the madness that being an Extremely Onlie Content Creator causes. Cut from the finest cloth of the absurdist British Comedy tradition.
Ivan/Vanya is an utterly original and extremely talented short story writer and essayist. A unique voice in an era of the same old, same old.
MaryAnn does a huge public service by trawling through Netflix, iPlayer etc to highlight the often neglected gems. For $5/mo you can save *tons* of time menu scrolling. Highly recommended for those who love cinema and value their time.
So much of the internet is fake. Posturing and personas and put on personalities to build a brand and make money. Lyle, however is 100% the real deal and it is a rare privilege to be able to see someone unflinchingly share the struggles and joys of living an authentic life.
Luke is, simply put, the most important explainer and champion of the most important thinker (Rene Girard) of modern times. Where others merely give takes on the current moment, Luke uses his Girardian lens to see above and beyond and offers us ways to get through. Vital work from a vital voice.
