The Sunday Long Read, 3/29/20

Happy Sunday! As you can tell from the date bar directly above, this is the 250th issue of The Sunday Long Read. Now’s hardly the time for a big celebration, obviously. Instead, we’re thinking of all of you amidst this tumult and hoping these next several SLRs can provide the right mix of information and distraction, with the SLR Syllabus returning this week in a modified format after your helpful feedback last week.

That said, we still wanted to take the occasion to once again thank each and every one of you who has stuck with us and pushed us forward over these last five-plus years (and also maybe beseech you to tell a friend about our little project?). You only turn 250 once, after all.

On another note, Don was on ESPN Daily this week to discuss his investigation into whether the “Battle of the Sexes” tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs was rigged. You should check it out wherever you listen to podcasts—it pairs well with a cup of coffee and these exemplary works of journalism.
