Investigative journalism from award-winning writers

We don’t cover every story, but take the time to reveal just one a week. Calm, clear reporting on the stories that matter most.

Early, ad-free access to all our podcasts

Our biggest stories, given voice. The Slow Newscast covers our big investigation of the week while our Editor’s Voicemail reveals what’s on co-founder James Harding’s mind.

Daily Sensemaker newsletter

Delivered to your inbox and direct to the members app once a day. Our daily roundup of the news that matters.

I want to thank you. You’ve done what you’ve set out to do. For me at least. You’ve changed the way I read news. Gone are the apps delivering a tsunami of underdeveloped articles. Gone is the click bait.

A thoughtful approach to the news. Highlighting the stories often lost under the fog of instant gratification and fake news claptrap.
