Dan Sinker/now

I always have a lot going on, here's what I'm doing now:

I'm packing orders for the new TRYING patches I made for you …

while helping run the Civic Media Fellowships at USC …

and being a fellow at the DePaul Center for Journalism Integrity and Excellence

while also hosting and producing the weekly podcast Says Who

and making merch for the Says Who Sticker Club, for authors like Annalee Newitz, and for you

plus rooting for Arsenal to win the Premier League in 2023.

My most recent blog posts

Trying — a patch for you

Earlier this year I wrote about how 2023, for me, is about trying. And then I made a patch to remind myself of that. And people wanted one, so now I've made them and you can get one.

Use Your Illusion

I wrote about chatbots and magic and a turn-of-the-century spirit medium who spewed images of people from beyond the grave from her mouth. No, really.

Skating and Waiting

I've been a lot of things, but I was a skater first. And skateboarding has taught me a lot about patience, about falling, and about getting back up.
