Hi guys!!

So I'm looking to subscribe to some magazines, and was wondering if you have some favorites that you like to read? Although I enjoy keeping up with the news, I love reading opinion editorials or just discussions on a random topic. While browsing at a local bookstore I liked the following magazines but obviously can't subscribe to all of them

- The Week
- The Economist
- The Nation
- Pacific Standard
- The Atlantic
- Reason
- Mother Jones
- The New Yorker
- The Weekly Standard

What do you guys think? Which magazines do you like?

I accidentally put this in the "Movies" forum. Could a mod please move it to the appropriate place?

Well, whenever the thread gets moved - I like some of the same:


- The Nation
- The Atlantic
- Mother Jones
- The New Yorker
- Vanity Fair


Then there are a lot of magazine I'd casually pick up: Harper's, Esquire, Ms., Psychology Today, Film Comment. I admire The Economist, but can't see myself subscribing.

"The Week" is a precis of events that is an OK launch point for further exploration.
"New Yorker" is really intended for those in or near "the city". Fantastic for the arts scene and a few decent articles but insular.
"Atlantic" has kinda lost out to online versions, including VOX.com.
"Mother Jones" gives the real far-left viewpoint un-edited by mainstream media. As a counterpoint, it is useful, but unless you are deeply involved in social causes it might as well be describing the intricacies of a civilization of fish.
"Harvard Business Review" used to be good.

In general though, all of your listed magazines are just flogging political and socio-economic topics with different whips. That gets tedious.

"Off-Beat", which is New Orleans' monthly music publication and is a freebie there. But I subscribe to it, and pay for it, because it's such a GOOD magazine if you're into the NOLA scene.
A local newspaper.


That's it.


I do have freebie subscriptions to a few blues e-newsletters.
