The role the 'postscript' is to accompany the central theme or tone of the issue. In that way, the postscript acts as an of addendum of sorts, a further reading, a thing that offers a bit more context. Maybe it takes the form of notes for one issue, a reference list, or a Works Cited and fleshes out certain ideas put forth in the Longform piece. Maybe sometimes it takes the form of links to other readings, documentaries, things that will accompany the issue.
