Changes since Covid-19
we will continue to bring you new podcasts and articles. Scheduled guests may change (Rikk wants to postpone his talks for the moment) but we will continue to bring you great talks from our circle of friends, and will update our schedule as we confirm things. We will keep looking to enrich the online experience during this time by providing more resources on our website to supplement our podcasts.

We send out two emails a month, one announcing the next event, and a follow-up email when the talk has been published.
