Rounding the Earth Sponsors and Partners
Rounding the Earth (substack, podcast, and all the forms we might take) spent several months casually mulling over whether to take on sponsors, and how. At some point late last year, I decided that advertising and promotion could be kept at a personal level, where I have a sense that who and what we advertise at RTE aligns with our values. For the moment, sponsorship will be entirely applied to creation of RTE podcasts and news programs, which is to say that I took the step of hiring Liam Sturgess on a part time basis, and hope to be able to expand his role. I also hope to hire somebody else part time to help with video editing and other aspects of creating educational and impactful media.
I'm a believer that the best advertisement is educational time. The worst advertisement is hypnotic or merely brand pushing. The latter turns me off, and I will never participate in it.
From time to time, I will add to this article/document, and point back here with links.
Overcoming the COVID Darkness. I believe this book is now available in three languages and growing. One simple way to help Rounding the Earth grow while learning about the stories of Dr. Brian Tyson and Dr. George Fareed is to purchase a copy of our book.
Due to my work on the analysis and final chapter of the book, I receive a small royalty from each book sold. The far larger reason to buy this book is to be able to hand it to a friend whose mind has been wedged open to the many highly unusual aspects of pandemic medicine and research. They can judge for themselves how problematic the system has become, but they can only practice discernment if they have the information.
The Institute for Practical and Applied Knowledge Educational programs (IPAK-EDU) is part of the shift away from traditional educational institutions with high quality instructors and courses at the top of their fields.

I'm going to be straight with you—I haven't had the chance to try a bottle, and I personally drink very little wine (I'm on the extremely light/social end of the drinking spectrum). But I love the branding and will try it, and then review it at some point. This merlot comes from the part of Texas where the good grapes grow. I plan to order a few bottles as gifts for friends who agree with the Jeffersonian dictum, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of tyrants."
