Happy Unsubscribe Day to all those mailing lists you forgot you were on

Today’s also Black Friday, which means that, for some godforsaken reason, email marketers are sending emails about “celebrating” a made-up day to support capitalism that isn’t even 1) a holiday or 2) festive. In fact, historically people have died trying to fulfill their capitalist impulses.
The holidays are coming up (literally Hannaukah starts on Sunday), so why not give the give that keeps on giving: a subscription to us!
We have a really great interview lined up to kick off our holiday break, but it’ll only be available to paid subscribers, so make sure you’ve got yours!
