I appreciate the expectations setting that has taken place the entire duration of this newsletter. As for non-politics talk: "Part 1" of your WSOP Main Event experience was posted 2 months ago. Would love the Part 2 before your memory of the week fades further!

I would ABSOLUTELY pay separately to have the sports forecasts back, especially for any matches where there is (at least very likely to be) only one winning team or athlete out of two (baseball, football, basketball, hockey, tennis, rugby, cricket, etc etc). The more sports on there the more I'd happily pay. I'd literally subscribe for several hundred dollars a month if they were all on there.

I enjoy your posts, and I would be willing to upgrade to paid for a lower cost than $80/year. If that rate works out for you then more power to you, though.

Nate- it appears that 538 has abandoned Sports coverage - I loved the statistical perspective - Any chance you’ll revive some of that?

I don’t currently intend to upgrade to paid, but I really appreciate your candor in setting expectations for what a paid subscription would entail.

I just paid for a membership, but I don’t know how to login or where to find you

If become a paid subscriber, can I ask you why you decided to make the objectively wrong decision in the Burrito Bracket of choosing that den of thieves in San Francisco, Là Taqueria, over the majestic bliss that is Al and Bea’s in Los Angeles?

You will limited your readership, along with very honest, productive feedback.

I do understand and wish the very best.

Congrats on this Nate!

FYI: I experienced a point of UI friction / conversion friction when I clicked on “Manage Subscription” from within the iOS app: it told me I couldn’t manage my sub from the app!

I’m happy to go online to switch to paid, but thought you should be aware that your funnel might have this in it. Cheers!

All the best on the next chapter! Not sure it matters, but I, for one, really appreciate the non-politics posts. Sports, poker, food, media, AI/tech, etc. All great.

Politics is fine too, but I wonder if, because the other topics don't generate as much "heat," they also don't generate as much engagement on average. I'm but one datapoint, but I hope this provides a small amount of "audience-interest-pressure" in the direction of less inherently emotional topics.

Food: would love to see more statistical posts on food. Nutrition vs. Lifespan. Loved your post on kinds of restaurants and cities.

Nate: Do you plan to run the election model next year?
