25 of the Best Longreads of 2020

We weren’t just bingeing Netflix in this pandemic-blighted year. We were reading—voraciously. Yes, in 2020 WIRED readers flocked to long-form stories about the coronavirus disaster. But they also devoured in-depth articles about everything from alleged poker cheats to digital blackface to the finer points of eluding a hungry dinosaur.

So, on the off-chance that you missed any of these gems, we’re here to suggest a holiday reading list of our favorites from the past year. It’s an admittedly subjective compilation, fueled by the picks of WIRED editors, reader favorites, and, yes, a few of my own darlings.

Enjoy some reading. Then you can go back to Netflix.
