Thank you for visiting. Welcome to a space where the curious come to think, the thinkers come to explore, and the explorers come to share. Born from a vibrant community of friends traversing life's complexities with verve, this weekly newsletter offers a tapestry of topics—from culture and politics to wellbeing and technology.

Why Subscribe?

  1. Exceptional Content: Each Saturday, you'll receive a newsletter curated by me, Tom Watson, a former Deputy Leader of the Labour Party and a fervent pamphleteer for over 40 years. With a subscriber base nearing 5,000 and growing every week, our community is fast becoming a home for insightful conversations and diverse perspectives.

  2. Varied Topics: Music, books, and culture intersect with fitness, health, and the technological enigma that is Elon Musk’s Twitter feed. Whether it's delving into serious policy matters or steering off the beaten path into the quirky and whimsical, there's something for everyone.

  3. 99% Free: With the exception of a few premium features for paid subscribers, the vast majority of our content remains free. Your paid subscription helps us cover operational costs and sustains this labour of love, offering you exclusive perks like health support & accountability groups, and Zoom Q&A calls with me.

A Bit More About Me

Over the years, I've written for various platforms—from fanzines and blogs to leading newspapers. I've co-authored three Sunday Times bestselling books, the latest of which, "Lose Weight 4 Life," was published in June 2022. My podcast, Persons of Interest, brings together a diverse cast of individuals with riveting stories. This newsletter aims to be your pothole-free zone, focusing solely on content that enriches and engages.
