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

I’m a daredevil. I don’t have any more questions, I’ll subscribe right away.

Funny coincidence. Look what link we have right here.

No, seriously, 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 nerdiness). Five links, 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 interesting.

In the archive, 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. The list of past newsletters gives you an impression of what those weekly servings look like.

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 – the first four issues are free. After that, it’s $6 per month.

This sounds great, but I really can’t pay $6 per month.

Send me an email to david@weeklyfilet.com and we’ll figure something out.

What’s the deal with the Weekly Filet Book Club?

Each week, one subscriber will recommend a book he or she likes a lot and thinks more people should read. We’re already curious to learn about your favourite book.

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). Your email address is not 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 david@weeklyfilet.com and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
