At various times I have written a monthly books column at Canadian Business, a monthly sports column at Sharp Magazine, and a twice-weekly social-studies column at Hazlitt. This is a random selection of some of the pieces I remember.

“How Cooking Shows Helped Me Survive Becoming a New Dad” – Sharp Magazine, May 2017
“‘Don’t be the Sucker’ and other nuggets of impossible advice gleaned from the world of daily fantasy sports” – Sharp Magazine, December 2015
“The Monstrous Cruelty of a Just World” – Hazlitt, January 2015. “It’s easy to want to believe that everything happens for a reason, but how does that affect the way we treat the people the universe has punished?”
