The Baffler is America’s leading voice of interesting and unexpected left-wing political criticism, cultural analysis, short stories, poems and art.
Founded in 1988 by Thomas Frank as “the journal that blunts the cutting edge,” the magazine is currently edited by Chris Lehmann and headquartered in New York. The Baffler publishes both new and established voices, and its regular contributors include Barbara Ehrenreich, Susan Faludi, Evgeny Morozov, Rick Perlstein and Astra Taylor.
Regular subjects include Silicon Valley snake-oil, the deadening weight of consumer capitalism, our faithless media, and the redemptive promise of people claiming control of their own lives.
The Baffler is owned by the non-profit Baffler Foundation and the majority its budget comes from tax-deductible donations. It is as charitable as a church, and certainly more fun.
