What it is

A newsletter about politics in plain English for normal people, democracy and the common good. Every weekday around lunchtime (maybe a little later!), readers receive fresh insight, analysis and commentary on the day’s news events. Subscribers get access to an array of contributors who write on an array of subjects vital to their roles as citizens.

What you get

For $6 a month, less than what you pay for coffee, you get:

  • Fresh daily analysis and commentary straight to your inbox.
  • More than 20 editions a month, more than 260 times a year.
  • a feeling of understanding, clarity and hope in America.
  • lots of ammunition for your next kitchen-table argument!

A little about me

I’m not a political scientist, but I have taught political science. I’m not a partisan, but for the moment the Democrats cares about what I care about. I’m a journalist, writer and citizen. I’m a fellow at Yale’s Ezra Stiles College; a contributing writer for the Washington Monthly; a contributing editor for Religion Dispatches; and senior editor at Alternet and Raw Story. My byline has been in news outlets big and small, mostly small. Follow me @johnastoehr.
