Nautilus Magazine

I've recently subscribed to Nautilus. I liken this magazine's depth to that of the Economist but with a scientific focus.

The chief advantage of Nautilus over the Economist, if you want to call this an advantage, is that Nautilus is published quarterly. This ensures that I can usually read it cover to cover before the next issue arrives.

In addition to the low frequency of publication, the articles are engaging and well written. There are some really great ideas in the articles that are conveyed with humour and wit that make the topics all the more interesting.

(I do enjoy the Economist, I just can't absorb all of the content each week. Slow reader, I guess.)
