Why subscribe?

“Razib Khan’s two part essay on Indian history is brilliant. While it’s long for a blog post, you’ll learn more about India than you would in many full length books.”

-Scott Sumner

“Bro, I’m really digging your newsletter!”

-Carlos D. Bustamante, Ph.D., MacArthur Genius

Subscribe for full access to weekly podcasts with thoughtful guests from a wide range of domains, plus periodic premium posts: unpredictable deep dives that will only appear here.

Unsupervised Learning is another little island of open discussion, difficult but important conversations, deeper reflection, the odd dangerous idea and of course, unsupervised (and rigorously uncensored) learning.

What you will find:

  • an Unsupervised Learning guest-driven podcast episode approximately weekly. These will remain gated, for subscribers only (with the comment section permanently safe behind the paywall) for 2 weeks, after which I’ll temporarily release the podcast audio more widely.

  • one or two deep-dive premium blog posts per month. These (and their discussion) will appear only behind the paywall.

  • For what it’s worth, I’ll still be posting regular content at my long-time blog Gene Expression gnxp.com. Which, with almost 19 years of archives, always has been, and remains free.

Why I hope you’ll join me

I’d roll back the internet to the golden days when Twitter was peopled by the technorati 1% in a heartbeat if that was an option. For now, I hope to come as close as possible to the cognoscenti-only early days of blogging and its commentariat behind this paywall.

Your engagement over my nearly two decades of blogging (and a few podcasting), your incisive comments, inside tips, reading suggestions, subtweets, friendly needling and your friendships have kept me honest and sustained me in my heresy.

I hope I can continue to repay your generosity with a steady drip of food for thought. So here’s to the revival of semi-secret societies!
