You are really cool though, and the rest of us Bad Subjects miss you dearly. Us non-academic types really need the help some days.

I don't think of BS as pretentious either. I do think we get too academic for the average reader. Certainly some articles are too academic for me. I start reading them and my brain starts sliding sideways off the page.

Then again, I don't think we need to lose all of the academic stuff, but we have to pay more attention balancing it with a lot more non-academic pieces. Some of us are working on that. We recently had someone who had published with us before tell us that he wasn't going to write for us because we're too academic. He changed his mind after the Protest Cultures issue.

Then again, the next issue, Marx and Theory, isn't going to help. Most of the articles are pretty academic, IMO.

After that, however, comes Family which will be primarily non-academic, as will Nation (since I'm editing that issue).
