The Distance

Internet culture – and even mainstream business reporting – celebrates the extremes. The overnight success. The epic crash and burn. The high-flying startup heroes and villains.

The Distance is something different.

It features a single article each month, written by a professional journalist, that dives into a business that has stood the test of time. I’ve been enjoying their work since it first launched, but today they:

  • Published a great new story.
  • Introduced a new companion audio podcast that was very well done.
