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 for free.


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.
