Hello comrades!

My name is Paris Marx. I write about cities, technology, and politics from a socialist perspective, with pieces published by NBC News, CBC News, Toronto Star, Jacobin Magazine, Tribune Magazine, OneZero, and a whole lot more. I send a weekly newsletter called Radical Urbanist which provides a critical take on issues affecting cities, and I host a weekly podcast called Tech Won't Save Us where I interview people who want tech to serve the public good instead of private profit. I also tweet a lot.

Obviously, the wealthy interests in tech and urbanism aren't going to open their wallets for someone constantly criticizing how their money-making schemes are making life worse for large swathes of the population — that's why I'm turning to my readers, listeners, and subscribers.

I'm finishing up a Master's from McGill University, and I'm planning to spend even more time criticizing billionaires and major corporations while presenting solutions to the broken status quo. But freelance writing isn't the most lucrative pursuit, especially with the global economy in a pandemic-fueled nosedive. There are a lot of issues I want to spend more time looking into, and the more financial security I have, the easier it is to step back from the grind of constant pitching and writing to give them a bit more attention.

Obviously, I'll keep you in the loop along the way, with updates and essays on the things I'm working on, and some personal updates you won't get elsewhere. Thank you so much for your support; anything you can contribute is a big help.

When I hit this milestone, I'll finally get a better website for Tech Won't Save Us to actually list all the episodes and guests.
