The best longform history newsletter on Substack. If you like going *deep* into America and Britain's less-explored stories, grab a cuppa and learn something totally unexpected.
This is "Game & Word" if it had been called "World & Word." If I were to to name a newsletter that best encapsulates the spirit, ideas, and style that G&W tries to bring to games writing, it's this one. The accessible and conversational tone, moments of discovery, and infectiously genuine excitement about learning for learning's sake are all traits I try to imbue G&W with. Mike has set a really high bar, and I one day hope to instill as much curiosity in my readers as he does in me.
By far Substack's funniest and most creative newsletter. These bite-sized "Choose Your Own Adventure"-style stories are always a joy to read and discuss. Also, Geoffrey is an absolutely stand-up human being, and a friend to all writers.
