About this app

Newslaundry is a reader-supported, independent news media company. In an industry driven by corporate and government interests, we strongly believe in the need for an independent news model, and a free and accountable press.

Through media critique, reportage, podcasts, documentaries, comics and animation, our stories bring you the latest in current affairs in innovative and engaging formats.

Our Core Values


Stories that are produced to bring value to you, not clicks for ad revenue. Our journalism is not dictated and influenced by advertisers, whether corporate or government. At Newslaundry, you get to bypass the digital clutter and go straight to the story.

Focus on media

The media holds democracy to account, but what about the media itself? We believe news organisations should be accountable, including us. Our stories on the media are driven by that belief.

Substance, not breaking

Organisations compete to “break” the news. We believe in bringing our readers the stories behind the headlines, through thoughtfully-researched deep dives and ground reports.

Community, not pageviews

We value our community of subscribers more than any metric. We have learned from their feedback and criticism and owe where we are today entirely to them.

Independent, not institutional view

We aim to be a “big tent” for opinions and viewpoints, presenting a broad spectrum of thoughtful perspectives.


Readers deserve transparency from their news sources. Our innovations are powered by our community of subscribers, from our monthly Chatbox with our subscribers to subscriber meetups.

I'm a big fan of NL's content, but the app experience has been buggy. A bug that's really annoying is that the app does not allow me to download any podcast to my phone - saying it needs storage access. But the app does not really "ask" for storage permissions like other apps do, and I'm also not able to manually provide the permission either. So I'm just unable to download podcasts, and reaching out to app support hasn't helped either.

The latest update is causing multiple crashes on Android phones. I'm not able to open my app even once.
