figuring out how to be and raise ethical, joyful humans in beautiful, horrible times.

The examined family is an honest, personal newsletter that encourages you to reflect on your life and to rethink and reassess what it means to live a good one. Courtney Martin reckons how the world has changed, shares the daily struggles of living in quarantine, and offers a Sunday Times Snapshot of “5 things worth noting from today’s New York Times”. The examined family is a mixture of essays, Q&As with activists from different fields and has an engaged community of like-minded, wise people.




Courtney Martin is an author, entrepreneur, and social and political activist. She’s the Co-Founder of Fresh Speakers and Solutions Journalism Network. Courtney Martin hopes that her writing will help readers to look at their own lives both critically and compassionately and take action in creating a community that fosters and brings happiness.


When choosing the free version, you are supposed to get only Wednesday’s essay, but sometimes - Friday’s Q&A (and an occasional essay as well) is available for free as well.


The paid subscription of The Examined Family costs $5. The newsletter is being sent two times a week - on Wednesdays and Fridays. The subscription gives you subscriber-only content (Q&A series, Sunday snapshot of The New York Times) and a full archive. Consider subscribing to support the author and her efforts to redistribute revenue to the people she is profiling in the Q&A’s.
