We see The Big Smoke company as a capital city for the 21st century in America. We’re all about cutting through the noises and mazes to have a distinctive cultural impact and connect people with things they’ll love.

The Big Smoke (TBS) launched in Australia in 2013, and within months of launching, TBS was being talked about all over the country as a leading opinion site. Being a dynamic voice in a stale media landscape allowed us to quickly permeate the mainstream media.

Now that we are in the USA, our aim is to provide a single platform that acts as a stage for the voicing of varied, topical, and interesting opinions. The pool of writers at The Big Smoke are generally not journalists, although some write for a living. We draw on some of the finest minds in the country—both young and old, emerging and famous. Our contributors come from all walks of life—blue-collar workers, comedians, lawyers, students, politicians, business owners, academics—the list is almost endless.

We publish content that we may not agree with. We don’t censor, we provide a platform for debate. We cater towards discerning readers who want to access ideas differently.
