Heads up! This newsletter is more than two years old. Links may be out of date or lead to unexpected places, or the context may have changed. Please handle with care.


This week, I visited Gruinard Island, the famous "anthrax island" that was once contaminated. And in the archives while I was researching, I found a story that I don't think anyone's told before.

Other interesting things I've found this week:Oh, and one more thing! Apparently a few people left YouTube comments last week that were like "hello newsletter subscribers"? Please don't do that! It just seems like spam to the people receiving them. If you're going to leave a comment, try to leave something that's pleasant or relevant, not junk. And if you see someone else leaving junk comments, please just quietly give it a thumb-down and move on so they don't get picked up by the Algorithms. Thanks!

And speaking of Algorithms: thanks for sticking with me as I continue to tweak this newsletter and figure out the best way to do it. I'm still not launching this to a large audience yet; if you've got feedback, please do hit reply and let me know.
