If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please drop us a line at subscriptions@unwinnable.com.

 

Exploits is a monthly magazine dedicated to the culture we love (and sometimes, the culture we love to hate). An exercise in building an irreverent Unwinnable canon, if we have watched it, read it, played it or listened to it and think it is somehow important (even if we hate it), Exploits is where we’ll tell you how and why.

Available as a direct download PDF, each issue features an essay on the ways we interact with culture, followed by short essays and blurbs recommending noteworthy music, books, movies, television and games. You’ll also get access to our private Slack channel, where you can chat with Team Unwinnable and other readers like you.

A steal at $2 a month. Note: Unwinnable Monthly subscribers receive Exploits as part of their subscription for free.

About Unwinnable
Unwinnable is Different. An award-winning website and magazine, our cultural criticism ranges from the silly (like this photo essay on sex toys) to the serious (like Yussef Cole’s look at the racist roots of Cuphead‘s animation style). We let our writers – fresh amateurs and experienced veterans alike – have free reign, meaning the stories you read here are unlike any other. We embrace all kinds of writing, on all kinds of subjects, by all kinds of people.

Being Different can be hard, though. A lot of people don’t get Different. Advertisers certainly don’t. That means Different needs your help. The only way a publication like Unwinnable can survive is through your support and your subscriptions. We’re asking you, you wonderful people, to help us spread the word. Every new subscriber is one more true believer in thoughtful cultural criticism. Together, we can stay Different!
