Why subscribe?

I’m Claire Potter, co-Executive Editor of Public Seminar, a web magazine based at The New School in New York City, and this is my newsletter. When you subscribe to Political Junkie, you’ll get an update on the brand new issue we publish every Wednesday, selected articles published at Public Seminar, and content written by me just for you. Public Seminar publishes every day, but we know that busy people like you don’t check websites anymore. Instead, we are now going to come to you.

Didn’t you used to be a blogger?

Yes. And I was a damned good blogger too. I miss it. So you will get a little of that at Political Junkie too. In addition to original content that is so exclusive it won’t even appear on Public Seminar, you’ll get links to things I think are interesting — the articles, podcasts, books and films that catch my eye and keep me informed.

Doesn’t everyone already have too much to read?

If you are like me, you do — that’s why this comes straight to your email inbox where you spend too much time on thankless, mind-numbing tasks. You can brighten your day with a quick read; or save these newsletters for the weekend. Overwhelmed? Just delete them, and know that you will still be part of the Political Junkie and Public Seminar community when you get your head above water.

For now, this newsletter is free — so what do you have to lose? And if you like it, share with a friend!
