The Context is a newsletter that cuts through the noise of the daily news cycle to bring you thoughtful, well-reasoned articles that broaden your understanding of the world.

Each week we sift through the internet's endless ocean of (mostly crap) content, hand-picking and commenting on a small selection of high-quality articles. We then deliver the results straight to your inbox every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Not from Australia? No worries – while we have an Australasian focus, we regularly include articles from all over the world.

If you'd prefer to try before you buy (who doesn't?) you can view a sample issue, or better yet sign up to our free plan for a taste of what to expect.


The Context is written by me, Dr Justin Pyvis. I'm somewhat of an "infovore", using my quest for knowledge and training as a professional economist to curate what I consider to be the most interesting ideas on the internet.

If you have any questions feel free to shoot me an email and I'll help out in any way I can.
