Welcome welcome to another edition of the best longform of the month. If you’re new, I read a lot of longform journalism – the good, the bad, the ugly. I am going to round up the best from June and tell you which ones you HAVE to read. The pieces always span categories from entertainment to personal essays to science to politics and more. So there is definitely something in here you’ll like.
With that being said I would LOVE if you would share your recommendations in the comments. I’m always looking for something new to read.
For these posts I try to stay towards the more journalistic end of things but I have some truly amazing blog posts recently that probably warrant a post directing you to them… so keep your eyes peeled for that.
