Office Hours is a newsletter and podcast about the business of culture.

I’ve learned over the years that there are very few resources where business people can learn about cultural trends in context and the cultural people who create those trends can learn all the biz lingo and contextual information they don’t teach you. So I made one.

Expect interviews with the people behind the people, case studies, trend forecasts and data presented in a way that won’t put you to sleep.

A paid subscription gives you full access to the newsletter direct to your inbox, and makes it all available online, too. You can pay monthly or annually, and you’ll never miss an issue!

  • If you want to get a taste of Office Hours, dig through the archives, or become a free subscriber to receive about some updates.


    How can I read a subscriber update?

    You can read a subscriber-only update in email, or on the website. If you click through from your email you will be automatically logged in. If you come to the website separately, you can log in through the Membership page.

    Can I forward the emails?

    When it comes to the free posts, spread them as far and as wide as you like, on whatever platform you currently prefer. Occasionally forwarding subscribers-only emails is just fine too.
