Access all of our journalism, including podcasts, our live events and our daily newsletter, the Sensemaker.

Award-winning podcasts:
Get our lead audio story of the week, the Slow Newscast, every Monday, blissfully ad-free. There’s also the Sensemaker podcast, which focuses on one story every day designed to help make sense of the world, and the Playmaker podcast, focusing on the most important daily story from football.
You’ll also get early access to our latest podcast series, like Sweet Bobby, Hidden Homicides, and Left to Die.

The Sensemaker:
Our daily newsletter is delivered straight to your inbox and is available in the app. Clear, calm analysis on the stories that matter most right now. Also in our family of newsletters is Tech States, on the six tech giants that shape our lives more than we realise, Net Zero, on how we must, and can, cut carbon emissions faster, and Creative Sensemaker, our weekly cultural recommendations newsletter.

Stories and investigative journalism:
Slow down, and wise up with original journalism from our own reporters and commissioned experts. We bring into focus the Big Five forces shaping our lives: the 100-year life, wealth, belonging, new things and our planet.

About us:
At Tortoise we take the time to investigate what’s really going on; to make sense of news, politics and the forces shaping our future. We don’t just report on slow stories – we care about what happens next. With your help, we want to understand the issues and spend time examining the ideas that will make for a better 21st century. Tortoise is built with and for our members and is driven by a collective desire to dive beneath the surface of the daily news.

Our mission is to create journalism that lasts. That means building a business model that’s responsible and sustainable. It means not being owned by a proprietor with an axe to grind. It means being independent of any political party or commercial agenda.

In short, it’s about belonging to something rather than just paying for it. We don’t take ads, and we’ll never sell your data.
