My World's on Fire
Tis the season
By Colleen Hagerty • Issue #48 • View online
Thanks for reading my World’s on Fire, a weekly newsletter about disasters from journalist Colleen Hagerty. If you found this dispatch interesting, I hope you’ll subscribe!

This week, I decided to bring back a MWOF fan favorite: the links edition! In case you’re wondering what happened to these posts, I’ve been writing them for my Patreon subscribers as part of the exclusive content they get for supporting this newsletter (quick plug that you, too, can access this content for just $3/month).
This newsletter got a number of new subscribers lately, though, and since we’re heading into what’s likely to be a disaster news-heavy summer, it seemed like a good time to bring the links back and connect with you all a bit. So, here’s how it works – this is some of the reading that has been on my radar for the past few weeks. Have any thoughts on these features or want to share what you’ve been reading/listening to/watching? Reply to this email or find me on Twitter to talk about it!
Let's get to the links:
