Monday Morning Reading List
Some interesting articles from across the web.
Hello, readers! There’s been an influx of new subscribers over the past week or so. Welcome!
There has been a quiet stretch of writing and podcasting lately due three reasons:
Day-job related work
An upcoming manuscript deadline
Due to these factors, August will likely see a little less original writing than usual. I will work on formalizing a schedule that I will share later.
In the meantime, check out a couple of pieces of great writing from across the web.
Illuminations - Kristin Rawls
Kristin Rawls has begun writing a deeply researched series on how evangelicalism “grooms” children, not LGBTQ+ persons as part of their new Revue newsletter, Illuminations. It’s in multiple parts, and yes, this is the type of thing that comes with a content warning.
You can find the first issue of this series here, and the latest edition here.
“Even if Tiktokstagram works, it won’t” - Ryan Broderick
Elsewhere on Substack, tech culture writer Ryan Broderick wrote about the recent push by Instagram to remake itself in the image of TikTok, and posits that we are witnessing the end of social media’s central role in our online experience, drawing upon this piece at Axios.
From the PEP Archive
Since there are so many new subscribers, here’s a few pieces from the archive that are worth resurfacing:
I am an independent podcaster and writer. I make it because I am compelled to, and I am compelled to ask for support so that I can make even more.
I’d love to expand my work and dedicate more time to podcasting and writing. Direct support is the most viable way for me to do this, and a key reason why I started this Substack.
