To support the weekly newsletter, and get extra dispatches of deeper thinking, become a member of Sentiers.

These emails will be a mix of special issues each focused on one topic, longform articles from myself and collaborators, and interviews.

The free Sentiers goes out weekly, except for a couple of weeks off around the holidays, three weeks off in the summer, and one or two other exceptions during the year. Member Dispatches will be going out once or twice a month initially.

Payments / security

Payments and access are managed by Memberful, which is now a Patreon company. They’ve been around for a while and excellent newsletters and websites like StratecheryKottke.orgThe New Consumer, and Craig Mod’s Explorers Club use the same platform. Credit card payments go through Stripe. I don’t have access to any of your credit card information, other than transaction confirmations.


Issues of the newsletter are sent using Mailchimp. Google tracking is disabled in my Mailchimp account, although I do use their in-house tracking to get a bit of information concerning open and click rates, which helps me figure out what works.

And of course, if you have questions, comments, or critiques, don’t hesitate to contact me.
