Hello friends,

Consider this a big cyber squeeze and thank you! After reading through all of your thoughtful suggestions and feedback, we’re ready to announce our new name.

To recap: We have been on the hunt for a title that better aligns with our mission of exploring the human side of technology. We asked you to weigh in, and we got over 700 suggestions from listeners... including, but not limited to:

And so: We're renaming this podcast "Note to Self."

Listen above for more about our new name. Soon you’ll be able to find us at If you're already a subscriber or a regular listener, you don't have to do anything at all - you’ll just see a new logo and hear a new intro each week. We'll be updating all of our social media profiles, and you shouldn't have to do a thing.

If you don't already, subscribe to our newsletter.

We’d love to hear what you think. You could find yourself in an upcoming episode.

For now, a big thank you for listening and for coming along on this ride.
