Welcome to What We’re Reading, an exclusive fortnightly recap for our supporters at the Affiliate Publisher level and above. This is where we highlight articles, books, and blogs we’ve been reading, have read, or find too interesting not to share. The content shared here need not necessarily reflect ideas we agree with or endorse. It might even be concepts or ideas we disagree with strongly. Rather, this is just an assorted collection of works we have consumed or are in the process of consuming. Hence the title: What We’re Reading. We’ll also highlight podcasts and videos occasionally. — Malhar MaliHelen PluckroseOliver Traldi
