We weren’t just Netflix’s frenzy in this pandemic year. We read – voraciously. Yes, in 2020 WIRED readers flocked to long stories about coronavirus disaster. But they also devoured in-depth articles on everything from alleged poker cheats and digital blackface to the intricacies of dodging a hungry dinosaur.
So, in case you missed any of these gems, we’re here to suggest a vacation playlist of our favorites from last year. This is an admittedly subjective compilation, fueled by the choices of WIRED editors, reader favorites and, yes, a few of my own darlings.
Good reading. Then you can go back to Netflix.
