Why subscribe?

Every week we’ll curate the best in climate writing and bring it to you, alongside our intersectional analysis of the climate conversation. For the past several months, Mary and Amy have been running Hot Take as a labor of love, aka an unpaid labor. And while we do TRULY love doing it, reading through everything, picking out the best examples of climate writing and then thinking through our analysis of where the climate conversation is headed takes time. Sometimes it also requires that we pay other people to help out (our mixer Tyler, for example, or Amanda Pinero and Larisa Ikeda, the talented illustrator and graphic designer responsible for our new cover art!). At any rate, we’ve reached the limits of what we can afford to do without at least covering our costs (ideally we’d love to cover our time too, but hey we’re also realistic). Your subscription will ensure that we can bring you Season 2 of Hot Take in a couple months. And you’ll get a curated list every week of must-read climate stories, plus our actually very well-thought-out takes on what’s happening in the climate conversation. PLUS bonus episodes and access to the occasional members-only happy hour.
