Roundup: Blast from the Past
Thus far, these Roundup posts have mostly looked back at what I’ve written in the newsletter over the past couple of years. Even over that short period, I can see changes in how I’ve been writing about certain subjects and, in some cases, changes in the evidence. This is especially true for COVID, of course, but in many areas, science evolves over time.
As I reflected on this, I got curious about what I might find if I looked even further back. I started seriously writing for a popular audience right around the time Expecting Better came out, in 2013. How would I react to those pieces now? So … today this post takes a weird trip down memory lane to when I used microeconomics to give dating advice in the Wall Street Journal, my feelings on Vibrams, and a few other stops. Join me!
Oh, and I did want to remind you: if you’re looking for content from this newsletter, you can always search the archives.
