History, science, and weirdness with guaranteed 0% contemporary politics because oh my god sometimes you need a break.
I started The Whippet because it was getting harder and harder to find interesting articles without being swamped by Trump news, and it was doing my head in. I wanted a breather from the harrowing stuff, but I didn’t want just pictures of cute animals, either, I wanted the things that make your brain light up:
- Scientific discoveries
- News articles about heists
- Bizarre animals
- WTF history
- What everyday life is like for, say, a Trappist monk
- ‘Fun facts’ that have actually been checked on Snopes before re-sharing
I couldn’t find a newsletter like that so I made one myself. Sign up, see how you like it, I promise that’s the one and only time Trump gets mentioned.
Goes out every other Thursday, 7am AEST.
