Conversations that change your life

I'm constantly chasing that great-dinner-party high. The tingly sensation of thinking differently after a stimulating discussion with a group of people.


Like an explorer after a discovery, when you expand your mind you can't go back to seeing just one way again.


It's those compelling conversations where we say 'Wow' or 'Interesting' or a simple 'Hmm I never considered that,' that bring me the most excitement.


To have those conversations, it takes two things. Openness to new ideas, and the discussion prompts themselves.


I started the Other Answer newsletter with the simple objective of providing people with the following nuggets for contemplation and discussion:

  • Ideas that challenge the current or shape the future

  • Intriguing questions to encourage compelling conversation

  • Varying perspectives on social norms and expectations

My motivation was to have an outlet to easily share all my readings with other people and to provide them with different perspectives to consider. Not to convince, nor sell, or even sway, just to encourage people to be aware that there are challengers of the status quo out there and ideas that push the boundaries.

In each newsletter there is an opening message, 3 sections (Explore, Discuss, and Consider) and a personal recommendation from me.


Though you won't see the opening messages in this post, you will see everything else from the first 5 editions of Other Answer newsletter. Enjoy!


If these topics intrigue you, please subscribe to Other Answer and get the newsletter delivered directly to your inbox. Other Answer is free, and I'll never spam you or share your information.
