Today’s topic.

A brief interlude. Last night, the Tangle community gathered in New York City for our second-ever live event. It was an amazing night: A sold out show, awesome energy in the audience, and some spicy exchanges on stage. We want to thank Summit Impact for sponsoring the event, our panelists for their participation, the 200 people who came out to the show, and our venue City Winery for being such excellent hosts. I also want to give a big thank you to my big brother, Reuben, who is the official “Tangle tour manager” and encouraged us to start hosting these events. We look forward to coming back to New York City.

If you missed the event but are hoping to make one soon, write in and let us know: What city do you think we should come to next? 

We’re going to release a podcast and some video footage of the event soon, but today most of the Tangle team is in transit: Isaac and Magdalena are on their way to Vancouver for Isaac’s TED Talk, Ari is traveling home to Vermont, and Jon is heading back to Colorado while Will holds down the fort in New York. Accordingly, we’re using today’s newsletter to announce Episode 2 of The Undecideds, our limited podcast series following five undecided voters up to and through the 2024 election. 

You can listen to Episode 2 here; in case you missed it, episode 1 is here

Tomorrow, we’ll be back in your inbox with a special reader mailbag edition to answer a backlog of questions from readers. And in the meantime, enjoy some photos from the event below! 

All the best,
Isaac and the Tangle team
