My name’s Andrew Zaleski, a freelance journalist who probably should have come up with a better reporting beat by now. I’ve written about America’s best lumberjack for Men’s Health, the world’s best drone racer for Wired, peace-keeping former felons for the Washington Post Magazine, a crazed French swimmer traversing the Pacific Ocean for Outside — and about furniture, space suits, self-driving cars, masquerading as a UPS man, and how a Brooklyn-based 3D-printer company (almost) changed the world.

This is a free monthly newsletter to share my latest work. Here’s what some people say about my reporting:

“I just read your article and thought you did an amazing job of covering the issues, angles and opinions. In quality, it was as good as, or, indeed better than anything I’ve read on the subject in the NY Times, Wall Street Journal or Economist, and it deserves wide coverage and recognition — which I hope you get. Very fair, very comprehensive, very straightforward. One of the best business articles I’ve read in the past year.” — Patrick Carlisle, who spoke to me about Bitcoin in real estate

“I really loved that Men’s Health article.” — Ian Frisch, a phenomenally good writer

“Christ, this really sucks.” — My inner monologue during every draft

Thanks for reading and for signing up.
