I’m going to take a break from writing essays for this weekly newsletter. As much as I enjoy doing the work, and as much as I’ve heard that you value it, it’s more than I can do right now.

We’ll still be in touch with podcast information. And I’m still planning to get a podcast out every Thursday, too.
