Escape Collective

After countless layoffs and challenges, new publications are rising from the ashes of Outside group; the first is Escape Collective — the new home of independent cycling media. The editors write: “Let’s not pigeonhole ourselves and say this will be a racing site, a tech site, or a culture site. Escape will be all of those things. Even more important, it will be a whole lot of things we haven’t even thought of yet.”

Air Mail

Air Mail, the subscription-based digital magazine company launched by former Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, announced that it is expanding into print. Axios reports: “The outlet isn’t yet profitable, but Carter said it brings in more than $15 million in annual revenue and has “a significant amount of the money we raised in the bank” to continue expanding for the next few years.


Founded in 2005, Lifehacker is a website that covers … well, virtually everything — fitness, cooking, parenting, tech and beyond. Now, it’s been sold to the digital-media giant Ziff Davis. The New York Times says: “In the highly competitive world of digital publishing, so-called service journalism publications like Lifehacker are valuable properties because they attract readers who are interested in advertiser-friendly categories.”

Post Headspace

The Washington Post and Headspace, a global leader in mindfulness and meditation, announced a partnership to make its deep library of content available to all new Washington Post subscribers in a first-of-its-kind bundle subscription. “Beginning this month, the Headspace app will host an expert guidance video featuring Washington Post reporter Amanda Morris as part of Headspace’s ‘The Wake Up,’ a daily video show to help members build a mindful morning routine by prompting them to take a step back from hustle culture.”
