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 Vox.com, 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.
Exciting news! The cutting-edge capability to email a Racked post to a friend has just been added to this site. On each individual post page, you'll see a link underneath the post (right); click said link, and a form to email a friend magically appears. If enough people take advantage of this amazing feature, maybe we'll even do up cool stat posts like "Most Emailed Story of the Week." The future is now! [Racked]
