There's an App for That
The App that Substack just launched, Substack Reader (iOs only rn) is legit. I am not just a content producer hither, but also a consumer. And an avid one at that. You can read my writing in your browser or in your in-box, that ain’t changing anytime soon, but now you can also use an app for those lulls in time where you would rather productively read than doom scroll till the coming WWIII fantasy of the globalists is fulfilled. Now that gas, like the rent before it, is too damn high, you might be riding the bus, and in between glances at your scenic route, you may want to read writing that makes your brain grow, or sends a jolt of serotonin to your gray matter.
Obviously, you can find Aksum Herald on Substack Reader. But you can also find other great writers (i.e. Gray Mirror, Razib Khan, African History Extra), more easily, without ads. They are aiming for the vibes of the calm computing movement. They want you to read, and to directly pay your favorite writers; circumventing the established Anglo-American oligarchs of the 4th Estate (or 4th Branch). Substack is a democracy, and the USFG is not. We like democracy, right?
Well, to be more accurate, they don’t have goons with guns, so they are merely a democratic force, rather than a democracy. But C.S. Lewis got a few shingles, and more importantly, saved a few souls, writing about Mere Christians.
What are you waiting for? Download the app, if you haven’t already, and subscribe, if you haven’t already. In fact, here’s a special, I won’t say you can’t refuse, but hard to.
P.S. Here’s their pitch:
With the app, you’ll have a dedicated Inbox for my Substack and any others you subscribe to. New posts will never get lost in your email filters, or stuck in spam. Longer posts will never cut-off by your email app. Comments and rich media will all work seamlessly. Overall, it’s a big upgrade to the reading experience.
The Substack app is currently available for iOS. If you don’t have an Apple device, you can join the Android waitlist here.
