Why Subscribe?

This newsletter focuses on the global news and technology changing our world. I won’t promise to make you smarter, only that you’ll have something else to talk about.

Get Informed

Not everybody has a computer or a decent internet connection, so The Smoke Eater is designed to be mobile and data friendly. You can read it on a toilet, a train, a car, or a bar.

Sign-up and I’ll send each issue to your inbox. It’s totally free, and you can unsubscribe whenever you want. You’re an adult, you can make your own decisions.

Money = Stuff

Again, The Smoke Eater is totally free. If you like it, subscribe to my Patreon. I’ll use that money on rent, bills, student loans, and better content. It would be nice hire an editor, do longform stories, and create videos or a podcast, but all that costs money.
