The Sunday Digest

Everything we published this week + another invitation to our Discord

Happy Sunday!

Last week, we shared a new round of signups for the Every Discord community—which includes channels on everything from the creator economy to what our readers and readers are eating for dinner. Over the past few days, we've welcomed new members, chatted about the latest business news, exchanged TV recommendations, and celebrated a whole bunch of spring birthdays. Dan even publicly workshopped the latest Superorganizers piece, which you can now read below!

We're keeping our sign-up page open this week, so if you'd like to join us for all of the above and way more, go ahead and do that. In the meantime, enjoy the Digest!

#75 - Is Dan Inconsiderate?

Talk Therapy with Dan Shipper & Nathan Baschez
