I sometimes enjoy investigative reporting and news analysis published at some of the leading 'zines: The Economist, The Atlantic, Wired, Businessweek, Salon, The New Yorker. (Note: I never check these sites; I just occasionally click through from other, more selective sources.)
But I don't read enough stories to have found any that I'm confident are consistently driven by genuine curiosity. Imagine a webzine where stories are researched by a horde of gwern uploads and written by a horde Yvain uploads.
Can LWers recommend any consistently curious webzines/magazines, or at least some consistently curious authors?
