Issue #78 A New Aphrodisiac. Oh Yeah.
Last week we had the pleasure of meeting some of our readers in person, a rare delight since we spend most of our time tinkering in cyberspace. The readers we met are smart, passionate, witty, kind, and eager to learn and share. We know we’re not always on the mark every week (refer to Issue #3 when we recommended a digital meditation headband). Sorry folks! But, it’s heartening to know that the community we’re creating with this newsletter are Perennials we want to hang with. One more thing … we could really use your help in answering this question: What could we do to make The What the newsletter of your dreams–something you’d tell every person you encounter to sign up? Please tell us here.
The What List
May 3, 2017
by Gina Pell + Amy Parker
The Podcast — We are listening to the free podcast Masters of Scale with Reid Hoffman who illuminates the mindset of what it takes to scale from zero to billions. It’s an absolute must-listen for all entrepreneurs. Plus, the show is committed to a 50/50 gender balance for guests, not to mention Reid is also a really good human.
The Booze — Cinco de Mayo is Friday, which means margarita time. We’ve long been fans of adding Damiana (the female viagra of liqueurs) and now there’s Gem and Bolt, which adds Mezcal to the mix.
The Reads — We’ll be coming out with our own Summer Reading List but here’s a list of new fiction recommended by Departures.
The Cats — Here’s an unusual cat meme we’ll be trying on both our cats and dogs later today once we secure a roll of blue tape. We’ll post the photo evidence on our social.
