The Sunday Long Read, 7/26/20

For those looking to add to their Sunday media diets, SLR podcast editor Jody Avirgan’s This Day in Esoteric Political History podcast (with historian Nicole Hemmer co-hosting and Jacob producing) now comes out three days a week as election season heats up. On this weekend’s edition, comedian and NYT contributor Maeve Higgins joined the show to talk about the Chappaquiddick scandal, which began during the same week Apollo 11 landed on the moon and still resonates today.

Jacob also published a longread of his own this week for Sportico, an oral history of Quokka, the dot-com company that came this close to shaking up the sports industry.
