In this Ramekin (read as my short ramblings or sharing of information), I talk about some new things coming to Thought Mixing Bowl:
1. A new podcast format where I’ll have conversations with guests revolving around a question they bring in. This question is something they find important or fascinating (or both) and that is a question that isn’t often talked about publicly.
2. I’m starting a weekly TMB newsletter. You’ll see the box to sign up on this page (on the right on desktop, at the bottom on mobile).
3. The most exciting thing of the three: the Thought Mixing Bowl projects fund. I’m super excited about this. I have a Patreon page (patreon.com/MattHanna) where people can donate money to TMB. Here’s the thing: Not only will you be helping keep TMB up and running, every single reward level involves me giving something back to other creatives. And at every level some amount of the money goes towards the TMB project fund. When the fund reaches $500 I will put a call out to all the creatives I’ve spoken to for TMB for project pitches that involve bringing joy to people through conversation, connection, creativity, and collaboration. Then all the patrons (people who gave money towards the fund) and I will vote on which project best represents those values. It’s basically crowdfunding art grants! Again I’m super excited about this. Please join me in making this happen: patreon.com/MattHanna.
