Hello, good to meet you. I'm David, a journalist, avid reader, podcast addict and I like trawling the web for hidden gems. Every Friday, I send out a newsletter, the Weekly Filet and I hope to welcome you as my next subscriber, joining a community of readers in 70 countries worldwide.

The Weekly Filet brings you a unique set of great recommendations from across the web, helping you make sense of the big issues of our time (with a healthy dose of serendipity and nerdiness). Five links, every Friday.

Those recommendations can be all kinds of things: longreads, data visualisations, videos, podcasts, photographs, music, books, games, cartoons, anything really. In the archive, you can find everything I’ve recommended since 2011.

Since I share only five links per week, the bar for inclusion is very high. I strive to offer you a good mix of definitive pieces on issues everyone is talking about and hidden gems you didn’t know you’ll find interesting.

Here’s an example of an actual newsletter: Filming the invisible, at minus 200 degrees.

Two things subscribers tell me they appreciate a lot about the newsletter:

  • They discover surprisingly interesting pieces that they otherwise would never have seen.

  • They get the definitive piece about a topic everyone is talking about.

But the best way to find out is to just give it a try – the first four issues are free.
