For all its faults (and there are many, which I’ve touched on before), there really is a lot of — dare I say — good content on Substack. That’s not to say that it outweighs the bad, necessarily, but the platform is structured in such a way that you’re not being force-fed content you don’t want via some weird algorithm.
I read a bunch of Substacks for a variety of reasons. Some have a really creative premise (see: Walk It Off), some have the kind of reader engagement I could only dream of (see: Popular Information), and some are just so extremely well-written (see: Galaxy Brain) that I feel the need to share them with everyone I see. I figure that the bad Substacks get enough attention, so below I’ve listed 17 of my favorites.
