😢 Back to school…already? 😢

Dear Impossible Family,

Greetings from somewhere off-the-grid. I’ve finally decided to unplug for a week. No email (other than this), no podcast interviews, no social media…nothing but time alone with my family and thoughts… SAVE ME!!!

Just Keating. I need some down time, just like you — before the stress/hassle of carpooling, incessant school supply shopping, and planning my own lectures kicks in. In fact, let me know your ideas for extending the unplugged/reset benefits throughout the year.

Stay tuned for more wonderful guests including Moiya Mc Tier (author of our Milky Way’s first unauthorized autobiography — tomorrow), Niall Ferguson, Lord Martin Rees, Neil Turok, Avi Loeb, Bernardo Kastrup, Eric Mazur and more!

Your feedback on this newsletter will help make it great, so I’d love to hear your thoughts/suggestions. Please feel free to respond to this email. I promise to read and respond to every one. If there’s a topic you’d love me to dig into in an upcoming issue, please let me know.

See below for a 2 second survey about this email. I hope I don’t receive too many 💩 grades from this first homework assignment of the school year!

PS. Welcome to all the newbies. The rest of this year is going to be incredible. Stay tuned!

PPS. I have a podcast which is downloaded over a million times a year. You should subscribe!
