    In the spirit of changing things I can change, can I offer some feedback on the reader experience here? I get an email from Modern Stoicism in my inbox telling me the next issue of The Stoic is available. I’m subscribed to The Stoic. If I click the link, I come to this article, which takes me to a link where I can subscribe to The Stoic again. Nothing on either site gives me a clue about how to get my hands on the magazine itself. Given the overlap in the teams, could you have a look at improving things please?

      Dear Katie
      Thank you for your note. I am sorry to hear about this.
      We just checked it this morning. it seemed to connect alright. It could have been a temporary glitch either at our end or yours. Please try again and subscribe. You should get the magazine in your mailbox. If you are still having problems, do you mind contacting us directly through our website so we can make this work for you?
      Yours sincerely

        The problem seems to continue. We just identified this as a problem originating from one of our service providers. They have not fully fixed it. I Will let you know when it is fixed. Thank you for your patience.
