Hello. Good to meet you. I’m David, a journalist, avid reader, podcat addict and I like scouring the web for hidden gems.

So what exactly is the Weekly Filet?

The Weekly Filet brings you the best recommendations from across the web, helping you make sense of the big issues of our time (with a healthy dose of serendipity and nerdery). Five recommendations, every Friday.

Like what?

Those recommendations can be all kinds of things: longreads, data visualisations, videos, podcasts, photographs, music, books, games, cartoons, anything really.

Since I share only five links per week, the bar for inclusion is very high. I strive to offer you a good mix of definitive pieces on issues everyone is talking about and hidden gems you didn’t know you’ll find intersting.

On this very website, you can find everything I’ve recommended since 2011. That should give you a good impression of what you’ll find in future Weekly Filets.

Will I like it?

Judging from the feedbacks I get, there’s a good chance that you will. But I guess the best way to find out is to just give it a try.

Just to be sure: You won’t do anything evil once I give you my email address?

Nope. Your email address is only used for sending you the Weekly Filet once a week (plus maybe once or twice a year some general updates on the Weekly Filet). Neither your email address nor your name (if provided) are shared with anyone. No spam, just filets.

I’ve got some great content here, can I pay you to be featured?


Just like with every FAQ, I have a question that isn’t answered here. Also, I have an idea what you could improve with the Weekly Filet.

Send me an email to cuisine@weeklyfilet.com and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
