Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Cat Marnell wrote a book proposal and received a sweet $500,000 advance from Simon & Schuster.
