One of the great things about working in and writing about Hollywood is people understand the value of unique voices and creative risk-taking. That’s what Puck is all about: A journalist-owned digital platform covering the inside conversation in the culture centers of America: Hollywood, Silicon Valley, Wall Street and Washington. In an increasingly consolidated media landscape, we value independent and authoritative reporting from journalists at the center of that elevated discourse, and we’ve lined up a great roster of writers, with more to come. Puck isn’t for everyone, but if you’re enjoying my emails, we’re probably for you.

Independence means the ability to 100 percent serve our audience, not sponsors, which is why Puck is a members-only platform. We’ll have a full digital presence, a suite of newsletters and podcasts, and community-building products. I’ve really enjoyed writing these private emails over the past 3.5 months, and growing a community of more than 10,000 insiders who value that informed and independent voice. I’d love for you to become a Puck subscriber and continue to get my emails as a member of that community. Click here to sign up.
