Dispatch from the Front Line: An opulent massage for your brain
Guess we have our "busty hookers" for this decade. Great. ALSO: The parents rights and/or hate march. Lots of India. Stupidity in Ontario and Alberta. And more.
Hey, Line readers! Welcome!
We have a loaded dispatch today but we have to spend some time at the top on some house cleaning. The Line is undergoing some big changes — good ones! We are spending a bit of money to professionalize some of our operations here in ways that will improve the experience for Line readers and make our lives a lot easier(!). This is going to mean some house cleaning items taking up some real estate here in the coming weeks as we keep you in the loop.
For now, the big thing is that we have partnered with Lead Podcasting for help with our audio and visual content. (We will have nice things to say about them next week.) The new workflow arrangements started last week and this was the first week that they fully took the reins. Thank God they did! Now that we have some help, we are pleased to now be able to offer our podcast on new platforms, something that just wasn’t possible for us to juggle before on top of everything else we’re already doing. If you are happy listening to our wisdom on Substack, you can still find it here, same as always — but now professionally edited and prepared, so it’s a better listen than ever.
If you prefer other platforms, those are coming online now (there are some technical lags beyond our control, which is why Google Podcasts isn’t an option yet — it will be soon, once our AI overlords catch up). Apple, though, is ready, if you like:
We are overtly asking for your help. As new entrants to these platforms, we need to please the algorithms. Please sign up on your platform of choice. Recommend us. Leave glowing reviews. These are simple steps but they make a huge difference. They really do. Help us grow!
Also, please subscribe to our YouTube channel! The videos are now also professionally edited and arranged, so they’re way better than what we could do internally, and we would be extremely grateful if you’d subscribe to us there and share our work, too. Same reason: gotta tickle those algos’.
And one more item of housekeeping: our Toronto event is next month. Reach out today and buy your ticket now. Sponsors also very much wanted! If this is a success we’ll go all across the country, but Toronto is our trial run. Sponsors and ticket sales make us smile. Please make us smile. Details below:
Okay! Sorry, that was a lot. Like we said, a lot is happening here. Let’s jump into the news. And remember: if this is too long for your email client, just click the link and read it on our website.
