Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier!

5 Key Moments From the Year of the ‘Exvangelicals’, on Rewire—“When we look back at 2018 a couple of decades from now, we may well recognize it as the year that a cohort of former evangelicals—largely children of the 1980s and 1990s who were mobilized for the culture wars we now repudiate—broke into the American public’s consciousness.”

The Cloying Fantasia of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”, on The New Yorker—“The production landed at an ideal moment, tapping into a desperation among women for something sweet. For me, it felt grating.”

When data is bad, you get gender-biased VR and faulty flu projections, on Quartz—“79% of executives agree that organizations are basing their most critical business decisions on data, yet many have not invested in the capabilities to verify truth within that data.”

The 45 Best — And Weirdest — Charts We Made In 2018, on 538—“Here are 45, in no particular order. If one really whets your appetite, click on the chart and you’ll be brought to the story from which it sprang.”
