Providing greater opportunity for brainfooders to connect with each other has been one of my main objectives for 2019. We’realwaysgoing to be a newsletter and you’llalwaysget this good stuff on Sunday. But it could be that some of you want to connect with other members of the community, and just see what’s up.
So we now have an already highly engagedonline community, and also have just launched a weeklyonline talk show, which will feature guestsfromthe community, including many of those who are the original content creators of the brainfood in the first place.
Our sequence is going to be: we first share the brainfood on Sunday via this newsletter, discuss it Mon-Thurs in the group, and the broadcast any deeper learnings via livestream on Friday. Think: ‘Brainfood, now over 3 courses’.
Kevin Green, Mark Edwards, Luc Dudler, Bharath Keshav, Joanne Rogers, Iulia Nicolaie, Andrew Charlwood, Dan Logan, Marcel van der Meer, Carly Turpin, Melissa Ranger, Nick Mortimer, Alexandros Ivos, Dan Lewis, Andrew Packiarajah, James Mayes, Lauren Bass, Matthias Pianezzer, Sean Allen, Robin Schooling, Steve Jacobs, Louise Triance and Anouk Agussol – your public recommendations are the only way this newsletter is sustainable!
