Daily Blog Supporters

per month

This tier is for readers of my short, daily essays on leadership and citizenship in the age of outrage. I write about calm, considered ways to contribute to your community as a leader. When you're a part of this tier, you'll be welcome to submit topics you'd like to hear more on. In general, this is a way of saying, "Thanks for writing everyday. Keep going."

Of Our Time Supporters

per month

This tier is for listeners of the Of Our Time podcast exploring the most important societal issues of our generation and the leaders working to solve them. You'll get unedited audio of every interview and the ability to submit questions before I host each interview.

Book Club

Limited (19 of 20 remaining)
per month

Books have been the greatest teachers of my life. They give me access to the best thinking from the best thinkers going all the way back to the printing press. When you join this tier, you'll get access to join a private book club session with me and a group no larger than 20. We'll read and discuss a new book every month.
