I'm in, Charlie! And welcome to Substack! I've been here for just over a year and write about the genre of Place Writing, so I'm really interested in your take on the subject. I live in the UK and, with family having recently moved to Nevada, I cross the pond regularly. Consequently, I want to learn more about the way America works and I think your Substack will do some enlightening. Good wishes for 'you are here.' - what a great title!

This sounds fascinating, Charlie! I'm used to writing about place from the perspective of landscape, nature, culture, and history, but it makes so much sense to look at how that same sense of identity intersects with politics and all the other things you named. Also, I spent my last couple of years of high school and all the home visits since in rural southeastern Idaho, and have found Idaho to be severely under-written-about, so I'm excited to hear your thoughts on the state!
