Sunday Links, We've Got Links

No usual Sunday newsletter this week: I’m working on a slightly tricky piece that’s asking for more time — and I’m spending the weekend showing up for a friend. So here’s a robust Things I Read / Consumed and Loved, and I hope you spend some time this weekend showing up for someone or even just showing up for yourself.

If you read this newsletter and value it, consider going to the paid version. This is a taste of what Paid Subscribers get at the end of their Sunday email every week.

Subscribing is also how you’ll find the heart of the Culture Study community: in weirdly fun/interesting/generative discussion threads, just for subscribers, every week, plus the Culture Study Discord, where there’s dedicated space for the discussion of this piece, plus the channel for Job Searching, and equally excellent spaces for non-toxic-child-free, chaos parenting, chaos yardsale, spinsters, queer secrets, and so much more. And if you’ve never been part of a Discord: I promise it’s much easier and less intimidating than you imagine. You’ll also receive free access to audio version of the newsletter via Curio.

If you are a contingent worker or un- or under-employed, just email and I’ll give you a free subscription, no questions asked. If you’d like to underwrite one of those subscriptions, you can donate one here.

If you’re reading this in your inbox, you can find a shareable version online here. You can follow me on Twitter here, and Instagram here — and you can always reach me at
