We need diversity of thought in the world to face the new challenges.
— Sir Tim Berners-Lee

After enduring the algorithm-fueled frustration that plagues our news cycle, I decided to make a change.

Rather, I decided to make one weekly. 

It’s called “Noise Cancellation.”


Every Friday, I’ll send out a curated list of the arts, culture, and news stories you need to know, plus, any posts from this site that pass muster to deserve a spot in your inbox. Instead of stuffing you with junk food through a News Feed, "Noise Cancellation" presents a diverse, substantial, and non-partisan menu linked by one unifying factor: the stories presented will cut through the noise. 

If you’re interested (and I don’t blame you if you aren’t), sign up below:
