ReadThe New Inquiry

I waste a lot of money on magazine subscriptions through Zinio and Amazon, and I barely get through any of them. The only thing I reliably read is The New Inquiry. It’s thought provoking and its contributors are some of the finest writers in the world. Each issue is tightly themed and really delves into each topic (Volume 4 on beauty was a standout).

Sadly it only had two series and ended in 2009 but it’s available via torrents and YouTube:
