Scavenger is a newsletter for curious people.

Do you ever wonder about the people and stories behind the everyday things surrounding you? I do, too.

Each week I pick a random topic that piques my curiosity –say, diner mugs, Meyer lemons, or an arcade game – and dig up a short and fascinating story.
