What happens when two friends start a business?
2 days ago
#72 - Does the score always take care of itself?
After Nathan shares his recent run of reading material, he and Dan wonder if the more intense leadership styles layed out in books on management have any place at Every. Can you run a writing collective like a football team—or are the two as dissonant as Dan's Jocko Willink impression?

#71 - Re-introducing Napkin Math, with special guest Evan Armstrong
Dan & Nathan welcome Evan Armstrong, Every's new Napkin Math lead, to the show. Walking through Evan's path to joining the collective, the trio discuss imposter syndrome, Evan's passion for increasing access to knowledge about finance and tech, and much more.

#70 - Nathan Screwed Up (an honest post-mortem)
After their last conversation about Jungian therapy and how "Shadow Work" can help us get a better look at the more difficult parts of ourselves, Dan and Nathan decide to make things less abstract, and apply their findings to their relationship as cofounders. Taking a recent misunderstanding about growth as a test case, they explore the benefits of validating people despite your skepticism, pushing back against our refusal to see ourselves, and why a return to Ted Lasso might help Nathan gain some clarity.
Apr 8, 2021
#69 - Shadow Work
Taking a listener's recommendation to do some "shadow work"—a therapy technique culled from a New Yorker article about an unconventional Hollywood therapist—Dan takes Nathan through a brief primer on differing modalities, and why they shouldn't necessarily be pitted against each other. Then, they discuss where Jung and Freud's theories are embedded in modern thought, identifying the value of picking out what's useful as we wrestle with what it means to be human.
Apr 2, 2021
#68 - Going deeper on conflicts—and solutions
Taking stock of the positive feedback they've received on the last few episodes, which have taken raw, unfiltered looks and the bumps and peaks in their working dynamic, Dan and Nathan look to continue their trend of examining what's worked, what hasn't, and how far they've come as collaborators and cofounders. Topics include: judging how bad the low points of your working relationship actually are, why it's crucial to track your disagreements until you found their actual roots, and what truly letting go of your ownership over a project looks like.
Apr 1, 2021
#67 - What kind of thinking do we want to cultivate?
Hot off the latest all-hands meeting, (or "Every One," in company parlance), Dan and Nathan reflect on the beauty of having created a space to talk shop and share visions with some of their favorite minds, why Acceptance and Commitment therapy has a lot of relevance for companies, and what the balance is between the individual and the collective at Every publications.
Mar 29, 2021
#66 - If the relationship works, the business works
This one goes deep. Recalling their first days working together, Dan and Nathan discuss the ways their relationship has evolved over the past year. To be honest it started out rough. In this episode, they talk about what that was like and how it changed over the first year of the business to be something they're both proud of.
Mar 26, 2021
#65 - Introducing Glassy, with special guest Taylor Majewski
Dan and Nathan welcome Taylor Majewski to the podcast on the inaugural week of her brand new Every newsletter, Glassy. A weekly study of technology through the lens of gender, Glassy will see Taylor digging into the themes that have guided her career thus far. She sat down to talk about how tech and gender came to sit at the center of her work, why Every is the best place for her to write about these topics, and why founders shouldn't be defensive or shy away from difficult conversations.
Mar 19, 2021
#64 - Do you respect me?
Co-founder relationships require respect, but what happens when one co-founder falls down on the job? How do you manage around it without losing respect for each other? More importantly, how can you accept your own shortcomings without losing respect for yourself? It’s something that Dan and Nathan have struggled with before, and in this episode they take an unfiltered, clear-eyed look at the the role respect plays in their relationship—and the times they’ve both felt small in each other’s eyes. They talk about Dan’s embarrassment over his inattention to small details, and Nathan’s fear about being able to manage many projects at once. Though they each deal with a different set of insecurities they find that, when they dig down to the root, their fears aren’t so different after all.
Mar 18, 2021
#63 - Creative obsession: a gift and a curse
Returning from a weeklong vacation, Nathan fills Dan in on the thinking he's been doing about burnout and its causes. They discuss how to temper (or lean into) inspiration when reading something exciting, dealing with the transitional phase between rest and work, and why we make it so hard for ourselves to start new projects.
Mar 5, 2021
#62 - How to take time off—and actually relax
It's Nathan's turn to take a break. After going over his plans with for a week of relaxing and cooking, he and Dan open up about why it can be hard to turn your productivity brain off during time away from the proverbial desk, and why workplaces should build structured time off into their workflows more frequently.
Mar 3, 2021
#61 - Designing our unsubscribe flow
Using a current work in progress—the exit survey page for departing subscribers—as an example of their differing communication styles, Dan and Nathan explore the benefits of having unique skillsets and thought processes. Listen through to learn why cofounders should strive to be more like the Spanish national soccer team.
Feb 27, 2021
#60 - Comfort with Chaos
Nathan and Dan discuss their differing approaches to writing, and wonder how they can manage to still be effective sounding boards for each other. Taking specific examples from their respective experiences writing and critiquing each other's work earlier in their working relationship, they end up exploring the process of starting a piece of work.
Feb 25, 2021
#59 - Goals vs Virtues
Returning from a well-earned week off, Dan takes Nathan through his return to Superorganizers: a look at My First Million cohost Shaan Puri's approach to personal growth. Topics include which types of goals we should consider genuinely accomplishable, how to be a healthy 'splainer, and why you sometimes need to write about what you want to do with your life until you cry.
Feb 17, 2021
#58 - We switched from Slack to Discord, and we're loving it! Here's why.
Nathan and Dan reflect on their first week spent using Discord instead of Slack, and lay out their reasoning for making the jump to begin with. The answer has a lot to do with building a community to last and grow, and it leads them to think about where value—internal and external—comes from.
Feb 10, 2021
#57 - How to conduct a luxurious edit
Dan and Nathan peel back the curtain on the editing process they've cultivated (and are still cultivating!) for the collective. Shifting between their experiences in both writer and editor positions, they explain why editing is a privilege and a responsibility, how they fill the role for each other—and why doing more of it has given them new shades of empathy for writers.
Feb 5, 2021
#56 - Why audio has a low "Dunbar's Number"
With the news that Twitter has acquired the podcasting company Breaker, Nathan walks Dan through his latest Divinations article on the state of podcasts over the past decade—or at least 2016, when he wrote an article in search of a platform dedicated to podcast discovery via social connections. After discussing the piece's three hypotheses, they both agree: we have yet to get a social network exclusively and effectively dedicated to content discovery...but podcasts are continuing to trend upwards, so there's still hope.
Feb 4, 2021
#55 - Why Raise Venture Capital for a Media Company?
Taking to Clubhouse for their first-ever live episode of Talk Therapy, Dan and Nathan attempt to answer a question they've gotten a lot since the launch: why did they go after VC backers for Every? In bucking tradition, they've taught themselves a lot about the difference between media and software products, and the unique experience of making decisions about and seeking funding as a team.
Jan 29, 2021
#54 - Paradigms 'R' Us
Dan brings Nathan in on a problem he's having with the inherent contradictions in much of the theory-based nonfiction writing out there––and the fact that the writers don't always seem to be interested in engaging with other ideas. To Nathan, the answer lies in the weeds of granular differences and deep research––which is not a place everyone's willing to go. The answers go deeper, and end up having a suprising amount to do with their freshly-launched writer collective.
Jan 27, 2021
#53 - Drop the 'thing'—it's cleaner
With the long-awaited, semi-prolonged launch and rebrand of Every behind them, Nathan and Dan take a collective breath. Only a quick one, though, because then they're back to it: tracing the history of their collaboration and its evolution into a writer collective, they consider the benefits of building your own platform, why Substack isn't actually on the edge of a mass exodus, and why their main goal for the next year involves sharing their collaborative success with a larger group of writers.

#52 - Inside The Prediction Game, with Andre Plaut
Dan and Nathan welcome Andre Plaut, creator of The Prediction Game—a competition to predict the events of the coming year for a tantalizing prize—which Everything will be hosting next year. Giving the details on the game’s more intimate origins and the wild year it had in 2020, Andre reveals how he built the game, how it works as a time capsule, and some of the predictions made by this year’s frontrunner. When you’re done listening, make sure you sign up for the Prediction Game!
Dec 19, 2020
#51 - How content has network effects
Nathan takes Dan behind his latest Divinations essay, “Why Content is King,” from the writing process—which included drafting the piece in longhand—to why some of its claims aren’t heard very often. One of those claims? That network effects, most commonly associated with software, belong in the conversation about why media businesses hold as much power as they do today.
Dec 17, 2020
#50 - Substack Reader is here! Is it good?
Dan and Nathan address the news that’s been dominating the Everything Slack all day: Substack’s long-awaited reader, which collects your newsletters in one place and points you to new ones. The guys aren’t totally euphoric on it just yet…but of course, there’s time. Listen for what the reader is missing right now, what functions future versions might add, and the lessons Dan and Nathan have learned about feeds from the Bundle Digest.

#49 - On Stress: Dan would like to speak with the manager
After giving Nathan proper credit for getting him to finally listen to—and enjoy—podcasts, Dan takes a pressing question from a recent one to the air: Why are are humans uniquely good at stressing out? The conversation is honest, hopeful, and includes Dan’s dream to get on the phone with the biggest anxiety researchers out there.
Dec 11, 2020
#48 - Consumable Software
Nathan loops Dan in on something he thought was a problem: falling in and out of love with different software too quickly. Turns out, it’s maybe not a problem at all—it’s the kind of cycle we should lean into more often. Listen through for how seeking novelty can help break monotony, and why you shouldn’t moralize about your own productivity.
Dec 7, 2020
#47 - What Founders Can Learn from Slack's Story
Reacting to the news of Slack’s purchase by Salesforce, Nathan gets into the different opportunities in hardware vs. software and Dan goes deep on building and wrestling with a co-browsing tool. Together, they plot how one might go about taking down Salesforce…if Salesforce doesn’t buy you first.
