Yes you can – Subscribe to our podcast of interviews:
"The art of the long interview is that you get a little closer to the actual person behind the idea."
It seemed like this was something we should have done from the start but we love words and writing over here and we have a deep infinity for print. But like the rest of you, we became obsessed with the sense listening and how it worked into our lives: in the car, in the kitchen, on a run, on the T. We understand.
Rather than swap one for the other, we are going to bring you both! Yes, it's a generation of free content...But don't worry, we are trying to figure out a revenue model that sustains. Along with every other disrupted media player from the Davids to Goliaths, we are trying to figure it out. But most of all, we are obsessed with building our tribe because we believe in the power of people. And that is where you come in...
As we try to lure you in with thoughtful print, an easy podcast, beautiful photography and assiduous and attentive curation, we ask you to tell a friend about us, share our interviews with a colleague and spread the word. If you want us to stick around and remain free, we need you to help build our tribe. In many ways, you are the reason we exist.
We need you to help us grow this loyal group of readers (and now listeners!) who want to know about big ideas coming out of Harvard, MIT, and everything that spawns around those giants of intelligence, and if we can grow large enough, you might never have to pay for it. If there are enough of you demanding curated, editorially unbiased stories from this Petri Dish of America, sellers will be willing to pay for us as a collective. Wouldn't that be a beautiful world?
Here is what we envision: Unbiased editorial around ideas, products and the people creating them – all coming out of Cambridge presented in a fresh, modern, compelling and accessible way. With enough of a loyal tribe, sponsors will eventually pay to be part of our energy. That elusive sponsorship will allow us to continue to give you beautiful, finely crafted and curated content and it will empower our growing team to make it for you with passion and care, as well as allow us to bring in new sources of information and ideas to help you stay engaged.
The new model is all about the tribe and we need you, our grassroots, to help us grow to get there. We need more subscribers to this email push and more of you listening to our podcast. (You can also keep buying tickets to our live events when we decide to do another!)
