A clean, ad-free reading experience

Beacon was designed from the ground up to be a clean and simple reading experience that looks and feels great on any screen. It wasn’t easy, but trust us, it was worth it.

Steven uses Beacon to reveal the ongoing legacy of colonialism in Latin America. Stationed in Colombia, he’ll expose the untold stories of globalization, with firsthand access to a country whose unparalleled natural wealth, decades-long human rights crisis, and ongoing struggle for peace, environmental sustainability, and social and democratic equality make it a perfect microcosm of the region and its history.
