What is Substack?
"What is Substack" is a question with a deceptively simple answer. Yes, it's an email newsletter platform (made up of text, audio, video, etc). But it's also much more than that. Substack is known for its hands-off approach to censorship. While there are still some publishing guidelines (no porn, hate speech or harassment, for example), the platform’s lack of gatekeeping has attracted both ground-breaking journalists and some seriously controversial writers”. https://blog.hootsuite.com/what-is-substack/
