I’m Michael Hobbes, a journalist based in Berlin. I co-host a podcast with my friend Aubrey and used to co-host one with my friend Sarah. I make videos and write essays and say things on the internet in various places.

The title and homepage of this newsletter make it seem like it has a theme but it’s basically just stuff I’m thinking about. If that sounds nice you can subscribe!
