Frequently asked questions

What is the California Sun?

It's an email newsletter that curates stories from numerous publications to give you the full sweep of news across California. See examples here.

When does it arrive?

The email hits your inbox weekdays at 6 a.m. Pacific. It pauses roughly 20 days a year for vacation and holidays.

Why do I need this?

Trying to keep up with the news in the internet age is overwhelming.

We make your life easier by scanning through everything out there, picking out only the most interesting stuff, then delivering it in a simple and engaging format.

How much does it cost?

First two months are free, then $3/month or $25/year.

How do I sign up?

Just go here and plug in your email.

Will you sell my personal info?

Never, ever, ever.

I already get a bunch of newsletters. What makes yours different?

Crucially, it's independent. Many newsletters have secondary motives — often to drive up paid subscriptions to a related news product.

The Sun doesn't do that. It delivers only the most newsworthy, most interesting, and most delightful California stories from across the web.

I don't like email. Are there other ways to find the newsletter?

Yes. Here is the RSS feed, if you're into that.

The newsletter is also posted at around 6 a.m. weekdays three places:

How do I unsubscribe?

There's an unsubscribe link at the bottom of every newsletter. If you run into problems, just email me and I’ll handle it.

How do I update my billing information or cancel my support?

Right here.
